eSignLive' Latest ApproveIt Release Adds Support for MS Office 2007, Adobe Acrobat 8.1

September 4, 2007

Support for current releases of the most common software applications makes Silanis' award-winning e-signature solution more accessible than ever. ApproveIt provides organizations with a "One Pen" solution for all their electronic signing needs.

Montreal, QC, September 5, 2007 — Leading electronic signature provider Silanis Technology is pleased to announce support for Microsoft Office 2007 and Adobe Acrobat 8.1.  With ApproveIt® Desktop, Version 5.8.2 , Silanis continues to offer the broadest support of any electronic signature vendor.

Specifically, Silanis' flagship product now supports Adobe Reader 8.1, Adobe Acrobat 8.1 and ActiveClient 6.0. And, as part of its support for Microsoft Office 2007, ApproveIt Desktop integrates easily with Microsoft Word and Excel, and Windows XP SP2.

“This latest release is proof of our continued commitment to supporting the most commonly used document formats,” said Richard L. Warren, chief executive officer, Silanis.

"Organizations are looking for a standard across all applications when it comes to electronic signing. ApproveIt provides that standard, with the electronic equivalent of a "one-pen solution."

Different processes naturally lend themselves to different formats: MS Excel for timesheets, Adobe PDF for contracts and MS Word for letters and agreements. Organizations should not have to change the format of their choice or their workflow, simply to adopt e-signatures.

ApproveIt enables electronic signing quickly and easily, whether an organization’s approval processes take place within its four walls or in front of customers. As a plug-in for popular business applications, documents or forms can be routed via a traditional workflow process or electronic content management system.

Signing can take place at an individual’s desktop, on a laptop computer or at a designated signing station for customer-facing applications. An electronic signature is applied to documents using a secure, electronic file containing the signer’s handwritten signature - or using an electronic signing pad that captures a person’s ‘live’ signature.

Because the electronic signature is permanently embedded within documents and forms, it can be securely routed using e-mail, or any workflow or content management system. It can also be combined with third-party user authentication products, including PKI digital certificates, smart cards, tokens and biometrics.

E-signatures allow organizations to approve documents in a fraction of the usual time. ApproveIt eliminates the inefficiencies and cost of paper from daily business processes, ensuring reliable and auditable business records.
