Understanding Digital Signatures

The value of digital signatures is becoming more and more recognised. Organisations looking to implement secure electronic interactions such as forms, contracts, financial documents, emails or any digital documents requiring signatures will need the right software to make it happen.

Electronic signatures from Validated ID

Validated ID provides businesses with the safest and easiest way to obtain electronic signatures. The different signature methods can be combined in order to adapt to the needs of teams and individuals, and can integrate with document management software to feed into existing digital processes.



Digital signatures are considered equal to physical signatures when the correct measures are in place. Enlisting digital signature technology improves the speed of auditing, provides smoother turnaround on contract completion, as well as reducing the associated costs.

Digital signatures can be used internally or externally with suppliers and clients. They give the ability to sign multiple documents remotely utilising two-factor authentications for security.

Our digital signature software can be integrated with our document management solutions, creating the perfect way to manage the documents out to be signed. Based on the number of signatures required, we can offer various ways to sign:

Remote Signatures

Documents can be sent to anyone with a computer, smartphone or table and requires no software installation.  The signer receives the document via email from our document management software, followed by a one time password sent to their phone.  The signers ID is verified which in turn allows them to sign the document.

Biometric Signature

A handwritten signature can be used in face to face situations on a tablet that is capable of capturing biometric information. Evidence such as the speed, pressure and inclination are collected, encrypted and embedded into the document which can uniquely identify the signer.

Centralised Signature

A remotely used electronic signature can be created via an app on a smartphone or tablet and by accessing a web page, makes it possible to sign a large volume of documents in a small amount of clicks.  This is incredibly valuable for Finance and Human Resources departments.  The signer is identified with a unique certificate that has previously been installed on the device being used.
