Premium Digital Credentials

The Benefits of Going Digital

These are some of the benefits that organisations experience when they move to digital credentials:

Save Money

Organisations save 80% on average when they switch from traditional paper credentials to digital.


Digital credenitals are shared at a 10x rate compared to paper and PDF credentials. They are clickable and drive traffic to your site from a very relevant audience. Via Diplomasafe 22% on average share the good news on social media with 90% of those shared being shared on Linkedin.

Customer Experience

Whereas previously, a physical paper credential would need to be manually signed and issued by snail mail – which can lead to it getting lost – digital credentials can be issued almost instantly, no matter where in the world a customer is. They also have the ability to share their credential publicly with one or two clicks, allowing them to show off their new qualification – which also serves the dual purpose of additional exposure for your organisation!

Security & Compliance

With a true digital credential – not just a PDF – each diploma/credential will have its own unique digital signature and be impossible to forge. It also allows you to keep up to date with the latest EU legislation.

Open Up International Markets

By issuing credentials digitally, you can work with customers anywhere in the world who will have the same credential experience as your local customers.

Why Traditional Credentials Suck

  • If you’re responsible for issuing credentials at your organisation and you are tired of the old-fashioned, manual, expensive processes, this is for you.
  • Every time you need to issue credentials, you go through the same process and it takes hours and hours of manual work to organise and issue digital credentials to all of your customers.
  • You might be in The Registrar’s Office, Student Services,  IT Department or Administration and you’re finding the current challenges with the way you’re issuing credentials.


The typical cost per paper credentials can be as high as 75-100 EUR, this can stack up if you’re issuing thousands of credentials as an organisation!


PDF and paper credentials are hard to share with your network and on your LinkedIn profile as proof of your newly attained skills. They are not clickable and drive little to none traffic to your website!

Security & Compliance

Paper diplomas are easily forged. Even with a PDF solution – which is only halfway to a truly digital credential. Your paper version credentials do not support any of the digital credential standards for verification.

Manual, Lengthy Process

It involves manual processes and checks. It also means that the process takes much longer than is needed, which has an impact on the student experience. The creation, manual checks, printing, packing, posting, handling return to sender, and manually verifying requests from recruiters.

Skills-based Hiring

Your paper credentials are not supporting the shift in the job market which is shifting from degree based hiring to skills based hiring, leaving students with an asset that is difficult to assess.
