“Customer transformation initiatives has become a key priority across all banking delivery channels and banks have begun to realize the need to elevate that experience while still mitigating risk by maintaining regulatory compliance and gathering strong transaction evidence,” says Silanis CEO and co-founder Tommy Petrogiannis. “Silanis’ E-Signature Banking Summit will address what banks can do to meet their customer needs while benefiting from the improved compliance and efficiencies of e-transactions,” continues Petrogiannis. Analyst firm Forrester Research Inc. has written that, “Enterprises now incorporate plans to adopt e-signing into their customer experience initiatives” (Customer Experience Drives E-Signature Adoption, Forrester Research, Inc., November 2011).This adoption comes as a result of drivers like customer demand for reduced time and hassle when doing business, as well as a push to allow transactions to take place using mobile devices like smartphones and tablets. It’s for these and other reasons like security, legal compliance and paperless processing that banking organizations are making e-signatures a foundational technology as part of their customer transformation projects.
