About Arco

Arco is a cutting-edge software company that combines genuine commitment with dedicated spirit. As a family-owned business, we greatly value a personal approach and building authentic relationships with our clients. With us, you have a dedicated team with a strong vision at your service.

Creating peace of mind

Our mission is to empower businesses and guide them through their digital transformation journey. We believe that digitalisation grants people the freedom to focus on their expertise. Arco makes every workday a little bit easier.

The story behind Arco

Arco was founded in 1993 by Paul Van Coillie and Martin Hider, in response to the growing need for an integrated and digitised document management system in companies. From the outset Arco has focused on offering solutions that meet the rapidly changing (digital) demands of businesses. Over the years, other solutions were introduced to improve all corporate communications, business processes and other information streams. Our goal is to continue growing and evolving with two fundamental questions always in mind: How can we support businesses and their employees? How can we give back valuable time to hardworking professionals?

Meet the Arco family

Working with Arco feels like coming home to family. This means that you not only can count on our professional support, but we enjoy taking the time to get to know you on a personal level.
