MONTREAL, QC, May 1, 2013 – Silanis Technology today announced that Forrester Research Inc. has recognized Silanis as a Leader in e-signatures in the firm’s report The Forrester Wave™: E-Signatures, Q2 2013. The report states, “Silanis is the strongest vendor with both an on-premise and cloud offering.” Silanis was among the select companies that Forrester invited to participate in the e-signatures report, which compared 10 electronic signature vendors across three categories and 18 criteria. Forrester cited Silanis with high scores in its current offering, strategy and market presence categories, with top scores (5/5) in criteria including:
- E-signature capture
- Sender configuration and customization
- Compliance with industry/country regulations and technical standards
- Electronic evidence
- Enterprise scalability
- Breadth and depth of e-signature services
- E-signature strategy
- Enterprise engagements
“The Forrester Wave is the first comprehensive electronic signature vendor round-up and indicates market maturity and a coming of age of the technology thanks to widespread adoption,” says Silanis CEO and co-founder Tommy Petrogiannis. “I believe that Silanis’ position in the Forrester Wave for e-signatures confirms Silanis as the top e-signature choice for business and is consistent with our focus on providing the preferred solution for organizations seeking easy-to-use, compliant e-signatures for regulated processes,” continued Petrogiannis. For organizations sensitive to promoting their brands and reputations, The Forrester Wave also highlights the need for a strong embedded signature capability, where “…the e-signing process can be inserted transparently into an existing web application and assume the same look and feel as that application.” With seamless integration into a customer’s brand as part of Silanis’ offering, it’s likely many Americans have applied for insurance or a loan using Silanis e-signatures, without even realizing it.
