Those who have worked in the pharmaceutical industry can relate with the stress of the paper intensive approach the sector takes to successfully execute tasks and manage operations. It is an industry where even a simple operation needs to be fully monitored, recorded, verified and be in compliant with established practices and guidelines. This can often result in the loss of efficiency, productivity, recorded inaccuracies and delays. However, there is a solution to all-the-paper-mayhem: adoption and deployment of e-signature practices.
E-signatures have redefined the world of paperless transactions and reshaped the boundaries of document flow. From BMW and General Services Administration Building to U.S Bank and Grand Hospital de Charleroi, the practice of e-signature is being widely adopted in different industrial sectors. However, there still remains an untapped niche which needs to embrace the practice. They have lingering questions in their mind that are either unanswered or poorly responded, which have kept them away from fully appreciating the practice. This blog walks through a list of such important questions, answering them to help our readers establish a comprehensive understanding of e-signatures.
Different user authentication models (hyperlink to blog titled, “What Are Different User Authentication Options for E-Signing Ceremony?”) are currently being deployed by organizations sectored across different industries. These user authentication models have helped them reinforce the reliability of their electronic signature based processes. Today, we will review some of these companies and explore how the implemented model is helping them.
In one of our previous blogs (hyperlink to blog titled “How to Establish User Identity for an Online Signature System”), we looked at the subject of erecting a complimentary user identification protocol for organizations that want to implement an online signature system. This blog is an extension of it. Here, we will be discussing different authentication options that can be utilized to make sure that the person e-signing the documents is indeed the authority who was validated during the initial user identification step. So let’s get started.
Ever since electronic signatures were legalized in all fifty states of the US, as per the integration of ESIGN Act of 2000 in the statutory framework, organizations have increasingly adopting the practice of signing documents online. These organizations are spread across different industrial sectors and have gradually started appreciating the benefits of deploying an online signature system for various reasons
Many companies worldwide are using computer signatures instead of the traditional ‘ink and paper’ signatures. Electronic signatures provide efficient system and platform that eliminates the delays in signing a contractual agreement. There is no need to print the documents, sign them, scan the documents, and then email them to the recipients.
Computer signatures represent a leap forward in making the signing process less time consuming, less costly, and far more convenient. They help businesses close deals quickly with the customers, thereby improving the cash flow and sales. Here, we will take a look at some of the value-added benefits of using computer signature to validate the documents.
Electronic signatures, or e-signature, are electronic fingerprints that associate a document to a signer. The e-signature is in the form of coded message. E-signs use a standard public key infrastructure (PKI) to authenticate messages.
If you are still using the traditional paper and ink signature, you need to consider making the switch to e-signatures. Electronic signature technology can help a business simplify the task of signing documents. E-signatures also help in expediting the signing process of the document. They have been given legal equivalence of the ‘wet ink’ signatures by the ESIGN Act that was passed in 2000. What’s more, e-signatures increase the document security by identifying when the signature has been invalidated.
