The successful digitisation of business processes is not an easy undertaking. The paperless office is rapidly becoming the norm for most businesses. Many core business tasks have been significantly improved through innovative technologies and solutions. One of the main drivers behind these enhancements is the desire of businesses for a more productive, efficient and cost-effective workplace.
The second blog in our series on the different types of e-signatures, this piece focuses on the differences between Advanced Electronic Signatures (AES) and Qualified Electronic Signatures (QES).

At a basic level, users can use any mark on an electronic document to capture the signer’s intent to approve or accept the contents. The form of the “mark” or how it was created is not important. What is important is proving who made the mark and that no one made any changes subsequently.
There isn’t a business in the world that hasn’t issued or received an invoice at one point. These critical documents keep international commerce flowing but it’s also easy to forget that raising, processing, approving and archiving these documents generates costs to a business.

In the first part of this blog mini-series we looked at the surprisingly high cost of paper, printing, photocopying and delivering documents when calculated over the course of a year.
A piece of paper is inexpensive, but, consider how many pieces of paper an average business uses, files and stores away every year.
The number can reach millions, if not more, and when you calculate what you do with that piece of paper you soon realize that considerable savings could be made by switching to digital signatures and eliminating paper-based approvals.
The business and environmental need for digital bulk signing
If your organisation needs to send out hundreds, thousands or even millions of documents for signature and action, then manual systems quickly become unmanageable, environmentally unacceptable, and prohibitively costly.
On the 28th October Ascertia launched its latest update of SigningHub (v7.7.9). This release includes support for the Cloud Signature Consortium API protocol and greater control of the sign-off level of assurance for users.
