• Successfully deploy E-Signing projects within the finance, insurance or other industry eco system.
Broadest choice of devices for trustworthy signature capturing
Wacom’s Electro-Magnetic Resonance (EMR) technology is known to provide best quality in signature capturing. Visitors of the show may experience E-Signing at Softpro's booth on a broad array of devices like Wacom signature tablets, Wacom Interactive Pen Displays as well as tablet kiosks, smartphones and tablets with Wacom Penabled technology inside such as the first smartphone with an active Wacom digitizer - Samsung Galaxy Note.
Handwritten Signatures in the Digital Workflow
It is easy to understand why more and more companies integrate handwritten signatures in electronic processes using SignDoc-- Handwritten signatures offer what Personal Identification Numbers (PINs) or other Biometrics such as finger prints cannot provide:
• Signatures are a non-intrusive proof of intent;
• Signatures are culturally accepted and understood;
• Signing is the most personal way for authentication;
• The invisible biometric characteristics of signatures such as the different levels of writing pressure cannot be spied out.
These are reasons enough for more and more companies to take signatures seriously. Softpro's SignDoc allows these companies to trust in the authenticity and integrity of electronic documents signed with the handwritten signature.
