Montreal, QC, June 12, 2009 – Silanis Technology, the leader in e-signature process management, announced today that it will host a free, live webcast with featured guest Forrester Research to discuss the role of e-signatures in e-commerce initiatives.

The 60-minute webcast will take place on Thursday, June 25 at 2:00 pm (EST). “In the push to make operations more efficient and reduce costs, banks will continue to shed headcount and close branches states a Forrester report entitled North American Bank IT Spending in 2008. That means banks will be looking to make their remaining employees, including the IT organization, even more productive.”  In an additional report, Industry Essential: The US Retail Banking Market, Forrester focuses on the impact of technology, “Banks will focus on technology solutions that can better integrate and automate banking business processes, reducing errors and not-in-good order (NIGO) business.” E-Signature process management solutions offer a strategic way to address these challenges. From consumer loan originations and account openings, to mortgage closings and securitization of assets, e-signatures make it possible for banks to execute transaction paperwork, without the paper. Many leading banks and lending institutions have already adopted e-signatures across multiple product lines, processes and channels, resulting in substantial benefits, including:
  • Increased back-office processing efficiency 
  • Improved customer experience
  • Costs savings
  • Fewer NIGO applications
  • Increased loan officer productivity
  • Stronger legal and compliance position
Aimed at line of business executives and IT/IS decision-makers, the presentation will feature:
  • Adoption trends and drivers
  • Common challenges in automating customer-facing transactions
  • Compliance and risk considerations
  • Real-world examples - Mortgage, Consumer Lending, Securitization
