Posted by media on March 23, 2017 at 9:00 AM

In this blog we have already talked about what you should consider when evaluating different solutions for electronic signature platforms, in order to offer a comprehensive and definitive solution for the needs of any company. Among the essential features, they should have an intuitive interface, be compatible with any device, and comply with the laws that define and regulate electronic signatures in the markets where the company works.

This said, what we want now to highlight is the process before deciding which eSignature solution best suits your company’s needs. That is, before evaluating the characteristics of the electronic signature solutions that exist in the market to choose one, we have to know at what point our company is and to what extent we need to implement an electronic signature solution.

To do this preliminary check, in this post we have selected the three basic questions that will allow you to determine where to start  the implementation of an electronic signature in your company. And from there, decide which solution is best suited to what your company needs.

What exactly is an audit trail and what electronic evidence does it contain?

Posted by media on August 18, 2016 at 9:00 AM

When carrying out any digital transaction, what guarantees have the involved parties regarding the legality and integrity of the information transmitted? This issue continues to cause a lack of confidence on the part of both companies and consumers, and ultimately slamming the brakes on the evolution of a digital economy and society.

To eliminate mistrust and enable online transactions occur securely, the figure of the trusted third party comes into play, whose mission is precisely to collect as much electronic evidence as possible during any electronic transaction -- the sending of email addresses, SMS messages, IP addresses, etc. -- to demonstrate to a third party that these electronic transactions actually occurred.

Signaturit acts as a trusted third party, and to collect all electronic evidences generated during the signing process, we issue an audit trail. In this post we explain in detail what exactly the audit trail is and what information it contains.

Are eSignatures legal in Europe?

Posted by media on August 11, 2016 at 9:00 AM

The first question many people ask us when we talk about Signaturit’s advanced eSignature solution is, "but... do electronic signatures have legal validity?" The resounding answer is yes, the electronic signature is legal throughout the European Union and in many other countries, including the United States.

It is entirely normal that there are still doubts about its legal weight, as well as a reluctance to use one due to the lack of information about it, but eSignatures are set to completely replace the traditional paper-and-pen method of signing documents. This is not just because the latter is less secure but also because it usually requires the signer to be physically present, which increasingly is considered a less viable option in our digital era.

In this post we review the European legislation establishing the legal validity of electronic signatures, the types of electronic signatures that currently exist and how the advanced electronic signature differs from the qualified electronic signature.
