Since its foundation, in 2001, VORTAL has always been a highly innovative company, with more than 80 registered trademarks, utility models, assigned and requested patents, and national and worldwide copyrights.
VORTAL is committed to pioneering the future of eSourcing and eProcurement, and the recent investments in the new 400m2 “Vortal Innovation Lab” (VIL) and a new R&D and Innovation Coach will help VORTAL become known as a top innovator in the minds of its customers, partners and employees as well as the general public and job seekers.

With “ESPDint”, one of the innovation projects currently funded by the European Commission, VORTAL, together with its Consortium partners, is leading the definition of guidelines for the self-declaration form used in public procurement procedures by public buyers and businesses within the EU that will make the form interoperable across European procurement platforms. Besides the technical deliverable of the so called “European Single Procurement Document” (ESPD), the small, cross-functional team of engineers, UX, marketing and sales representatives is also exploring a profitable and repeatable business model for a service that would incorporate the ESPD through the application of innovation and entrepreneurship methods and tools, such as and adapted version of the Business Model Canvas, customer discovery, prototyping and fast experimentation. This mixed approach of discovery and delivery will help VORTAL create products and services that both existing and new customers will buy and use.
VORTAL is known for its desire to create a completely innovation-driven, repeatable and scalable ecosystem for turning creative ideas into profitable business models.
