Digital contracts and electronic signatures

Posted by Victoria Allen on 24-Mar-2020 11:54:58

Many companies have told staff to work from home and this has presented a challenge for some employees who are missing the means to operate remotely. In this blog, we discuss how to keep business moving with digital contracts and electronic signatures.

In this day and age, there is genuinely no reason to use paper for contracts, agreements, HR and other business documents. What is important is to ensure authenticity, trust and integrity of signed business documents.

What is a digital signature and how do I create one?

Posted by Victoria Allen on 30-Sep-2019 14:40:54

What is a digital signature and how do I create one are two of the most common questions we are asked.

What is a digital signature?

Digital signatures must provide a way to authenticate the signer’s identity.
