As the number of online and paperless interactions increase, so does the use of digital signatures. Any company looking to secure and safeguard an electronic message, whether that’s an email, credit card or digital document, will need to use digital signatures.
A digital signature protects a documents information and guarantees that the content has not been altered in transit. Digital signatures are as legally binding as physical signatures, can improve the speed of auditing, (as the document has already been stored electronically) as well as lowering associated costs.
At DocTech, we understand the importance of document and data security because it’s at the core of what we do. Our digital signature software can be integrated with DocuWare, creating the perfect way to manage the documents you have out to be signed. Based on the number of signatures required, our solutions offer various ways to sign including biometric signing. This is the way marks are made on a device with software that associates biometric data – the pressure or speed of writing, to the identity of the signer.
Digital signatures can be used internally or with suppliers and clients outside the business. They give the ability to sign multiple documents at the same time, and provide two factor authentication. IP and geographic coordinates are used as evidence for identification.
