Opportunities for Apple’s iPad and other tablets in the business world are becoming more and more versatile. Until recently, tablets were mostly used for showcasing products, but they are capable of more. Displaying and filling electronic documents on tablets is on the agenda of many companies. At the DMS EXPO in Stuttgart from the October 23-25, SOFTPRO will introduce the building block that completes the process – a robust software solution for E-Signing on iPad & Co. devices.
With SignDoc Mobile, signatures can be captured and shown realistically on the screen of mobile deivces like tablets and smart phones. The handwritten signature is saved securely in an electronic document, allowing for a truly, entirely paperless workflow. The SignDoc Mobile App is available for iOS and Android operating systems.
Several insurance companies have rolled out their app with integrated SignDoc Mobile.
SignDoc Mobile is especially equipped to optimize the viewing of electronic documents on tablets. With just one click on the signature field, signature capture has begun. The interface for preparing and delivering documents, as well as for launching the signature capture module, are both easily integrated in a few simple steps in apps or a web portal.
Safe Integration of Handwritten Signatures in Digital Workflows
SignDoc Mobile was the first E-Signing App to be certified as an "Approved App" by the German Technical Inspection Association (TÜV) for outstanding security and user-friendliness. Many measures are taken assure that signatures captured and processed by SignDoc Mobile are trustworthy.
• When a signature is captured, the biometric characteristics of the signer’s handwriting, such as speed and acceleration are also recorded.
• The signature data are encrypted and saved along with the document’s content.
• A timestamp is also recorded at the time of signature, as well as an Integrity value, which allows for the tracking of any manipulation of the document after it has been signed.
• Only the data needed for filling a form and the signing it are retrieved from the system at the time of signature. The document itself remains in the secure server until its finalization, after which the completed PDF document can be downloaded from the Web server, further processed, and/or sent to its next destination.
