E-Signing for Signature Pads

Typical Use Cases

  • To capture signatures on signature pads in-store, in a branch, or in the office
  • For field agents to get documents signed in person
  • To enhance existing applications by adding signature capturing features

Capture Handwritten Signatures on Signature Pads

  • A signature captured with SIGNificant is much more than just an electronic image of a digitized signature. We record - the handwritten signature of a person using all available parameters, such as acceleration, speed, and rhythm. This makes the digitized signature forensically identifiable.
  • If there is a dispute about a captured signature, we offer an expert tool that forensically analyzes 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.

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.
  • Fill in your form fields and allow automated form data extraction of signed documents. Form data to be edited can also be prefilled from external applications before e-signing.
  • Add scans of driving license, passport or any other attachment

Bank-grade Security

  • The biometrical signature data is encrypted asymmetrically using a public key directly while the signature is being record.
  • The signature is always securely bound to a unique document.
  • To prevent sniffing of the captured biometric data from the signature tablet, we offer the security mechanisms ranging from encrypting the communication between the signature pad and the computer to end-to-end encryption of the signature data on the pad itself.
  • We show the relevant part of the document as the background image on signature pads to provide a visual link between the signature and the document for the signer.
  • On many signature pads we enable signers to browse through the whole document on the signature pad if they want to.

No Vendor Lock-In

  • SIGNificant is device-independent 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 a 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 into existing rich client UIs, enabling full control over the user experience.
  • Supports also clients connected through Citrix or RDP and avoids packet loss resulting from the latency of production networks.
  • Available as an on-premises installation or provided as a cloud-based solution.
