A young company with a vision

How it started

At the request of Halewijn, Genscom set out to build a digital platform with an online editor. This would enable thousands of volunteers to directly and personally contribute to the local editions of Kerk&Leven. The editor was rigorously tested with the volunteers. Genscom succeeded in creating a simple, user-friendly tool create specially for those with little to no graphic experience.

2014 – Happiedays: A newspaper for every occasion

With further expansion and extra features, the editor is soon introduced to the general public as Happiedays. From this point on, everyone can make their own newspaper and have it printed starting from just a single copy. For a birthday, an anniversary, a wedding, a pregnancy announcement… there's every reason to surprise someone with a personal newspaper. On Happiedays, you’ll find several themes and templates to choose from to help you jump-start the creative process of making your own newspaper. That’s how we gave more than 250.000 people a happieday!

2015 – MyGenscom: Organizations climb on board

Youth organizations and associations are introduced to the advantages of the online editor. Local volunteers can now publicize their local activities in a newspaper using the organization’s corporate style guide and with help from a professional design and training from Genscom. What’s more: organizations are guaranteed the lowest print rates, regardless of print run, and are provided access to a library with tailored texts and images.

Soon, many charitable organizations, residential care centers and social housing companies climb on board. Now, over 200 organizations and institutions utilize a tailored design platform from Genscom. Interested? Contact Koenraad Coppens
