WHY SIGN ELECTRONICALLY?

The ability to apply a legally defensible digital signature that can withstand legal scrutiny creates a positive customer experience and efficiencies that will strategically improve competitiveness.

  • Increase business process efficiency and signing turn-around time
  • Cut costs associated with expensive paper-based processes
  • Ensure the digital identities of your transacting parties are verified securely
  • Ensure that the signed documents are cryptographically locked against unauthorised change
  • Increase customer convenience
  • Ensure legal certainty
  • Create certainty of retention, retrieval and reliability

WHAT DOES AN ELECTRONIC SIGNATURE CONSIST OF?

Electronic signatures applied within SigningHub are created using a two-tiered approach, making it easy to see if a document is authentic and an original after it has been signed.

Graphically shown in the diagram below, the blue layer represents the e-signature, which includes the user’s hand-signature mark, as well as your company’s logo if you wish to include this. In the background, as represented by the green layer, a cryptographic digital signature exists. Cryptographic digital signatures are created using a unique set of signing keys and form a tamperproof seal around the document, providing assurance that the document is authentic.

Applications such as Adobe Reader, which is freely available, can validate a digital signature and clearly display the success or failure of the validation.
