Remote working has quickly become the new normal. Many businesses that were initially sceptical have experienced the benefits and many will likely continue with remote working long after it’s necessary.
Our popular ‘five industries’ blog series has returned, starting with museums!
Museums are already using technology across the entire visitor journey to deliver impressive experiences that entertain and enlighten. However, this is just one part of an overall digital transformation strategy.
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.
Digitally signing business documents is becoming more prevalent as industries realise the efficiency and productivity benefits.
We have discussed the business benefits for multiple internal departments, but there are also many advantages for B2C companies.
Following on from the HR department, the next blog in our series exploring the business benefits of eSignatures is about the legal department.
Compliant document approval procedures are important in the departments we have previously discussed, but it is especially important for the legal department which has stricter regulations.
Have you considered whether your e-signatures can survive court scrutiny? It's unlikely you would be asking your customers, employees or partners to sign documents unless you wanted their agreement to be legally-binding in case of disputes.
Important documents are signed all the time: wills, contracts, government documents, the list is endless. The person’s signature identifies the signer, but also authorises the document by proving that they agreed to the terms stated.
Today is World Paper Free Day, an initiative by AIIM (The Global Community of Information Professionals) to reduce the amount of paper generated in workplaces by everyday tasks.
Implementing an e-signature solution successfully can be a great investment, quickly saving enormous time & money for your organisation, whilst easing life for your customers, employees and partners. But how do you get it right and not be left with yet another system for users to learn and/or avoid?
A quick background: Advanced digital signatures require each user to have their own unique signing key. The security of the system then relies on the fact that the user's private signing key is not accessible to anyone else other than the owner. If implemented properly it allows an independent judge to determine that any digital signatures produced with the user's private key must have been created by the owner and no one else - thereby delivering the "non-repudiation" property where signers can't reasonably deny the signatures they have created.
