Digital Signatures: what, why and how?
Discover how Digital Signatures work and what the benefits are when using them in your business.
Written signatures are still the most common form of document authentication. With all the electronic communication of the modern world, documents are still typically printed and signed by hand to provide authentication. So much so, that 80% of the documents printed by UK businesses are printed simply to sign them!
But times are changing. Digital signatures are now every bit as legally-binding and acceptable as ‘wet ink’ signatures. As businesses adopt paperless culture, digital signatures form a vital part of this process; enabling faster authentication and approval, automated processing and removing the need to print and archive paper documents.
Furthermore, digital signatures go far beyond hand-written signatures – creating an electronic audit trail and providing a layer of third-party identity verification.
In this paper, we explore what digital signatures are, the benefits they offer and how to implement them in your document processes.
