Advertising and E-Signing on Pen Displays

Typical Use Cases

  • To advertise and capture signatures on pen displays in-store or at/ branch locations

When to Use Pen Displays

  • The main advantage of stylus-based displays is their big display sizes (typically 10 inches or more), which allow customers to comfortably read documents. 
  • Pen Displays are also perfect for showing high resolution picture slideshows or videos for advertising or marketing purposes.
  • Using stylus-based displays requires specialized software to make use of all the advantages such displays can offer.

The SIGNificant Kiosk Mode

Avoids shifting mouse focus and enables you to assist your customers via a preview window

  • When the pen display is used as a second PC screen, the pen display will be recognized by the operating system as a second screen that uses a stylus as an additional input device.
  • Every time the customer touches the screen with the stylus, the mouse focus is shifted by the operating system to the pen display (second screen) disturbing the operator on the main screen. 
  • In addition, it's tough to train operators to display a document that is ready for signing on the second screen with typical operating system capabilities.
  • Both problems can be solved with the SIGNificant Kiosk mode:
    • Simultaneous customer and employee input interactions will no longer interfere with each other.
    • A separate “preview” window is active on the employee screen, displaying what is happening on the second screen and enabling the employee to assist the customer if necessary. This functionality is especially helpful when there is some distance between the two screens.
    • If there are no active documents waiting to be signed by the customer, the pen display  automatically switches into “advertising mode” and displays predefined advertising slides or clips.

Speed Up Your Processes

  • You can start your e-signature process with a document set produced from your core system. Once signed, the document ends up where it needs to be.
  • Signing fields and logic — the basics of the signing ceremony — are added to the document before it is signed by the customer.

Captured Signatures are Forensically Identifiable

  • A signature captured with SIGNificant is much more than just an electronic image of a digitized signature. We record – forensically identifiably – the handwritten signature of a person using all available parameters, such as acceleration, speed, and rhythm.
  • If there is a dispute about a captured signature, an expert tool is available to forensically analyze the biometric characteristics of the captured signature.
  • We also provide a signature verification that authenticates a signature against a pre-enrolled signature profile database in real-time.

Using the Pen Display for Advertising

  • If there are no active documents waiting to be signed by the customer, the pen display automatically switches into “advertising mode” and displays predefined advertising slides or clips
  • Slide-shows and videos can be arranged
  • The advertising configuration for each individual pen display can be centrally managed

Bank-Grade Security

  • The biometrical signature data is encrypted asymmetrically using a public key directly while recording.
  • The signature is always securely bound to a unique document.
  • Pen displays enable signers to browse through the whole document on the display if they want to.

No Vendor Lock-In

  • SIGNificant is device-independent so it can be used with a broad range of signature capturing devices from various manufacturers. Some processes require basic signature pads, while others require more advanced devices.
  • SIGNificant addresses this issue with a modular architecture that enables the introduction of new devices by developing small device drivers that do not change the core solution itself. 
  • This solution ensures easy support and upgrades - even the complete exchange of devices with other vendors.
  • Biometric signatures can be exported according to the ISO/IEC 19794-7:2007 standard for biometric signature exchange, providing full vendor independence of the signed documents.

Straightforward Integration

  • Some businesses might choose our purely desktop-based approach. But for most use cases the server-based approach is preferred, as it provides the following advantages:
    • The integration to existing systems is purely server-side, the natural choice for a server-based back-end architecture
    • The PDF document is only stored in the data-center and not automatically distributed to the clients
    • A Java Applet automatically detects the signature capturing device. The client only needs to run a compatible Web browser.
  • Java and .NET SDKs allow a seamless integration with existing rich client UIs, enabling full control over the user experience.
  • Supports clients connected through Citrix or RDP and avoids packet loss resulting from the latency of production networks.
  • Available as an on-premises installation or a cloud-based solution.
