Taking Business Mobile Increases Efficiency for Le Grand Hôpital de Charleroi
MONTREAL, QC, August 12, 2013 – Silanis Technology, a leader in enterprise electronic signature solutions with over 600 million documents processed annually, today announced its customer, Le Grand Hôpital de Charleroi in Belgium, has successfully used Silanis’ cloud e-signature service on smartphones to increase efficiency within the hospital complex’s business processes. Le Grand Hôpital de Charleroi is a Belgian hospital complex that spans five different sites, employs 4,400 people and is responsible for more than 400,000 annual patient consultations annually. Since 2011, the hospital complex’s IT department has been using Silanis’ e-SignLive e-signature service to accelerate signature approvals on internal processes such as purchase orders, invoices and service contracts. Prior to smartphones and electronic signature technology, reaching hospital management for approvals was difficult, since they were often in meetings or located at various sites and buildings throughout the hospital complex. With paper, it would often take a week to obtain signatures via internal mail, slowing down the contracting process and delaying delivery of urgent IT supplies. "If I am in a meeting or offsite, I get an email on my smartphone requesting I sign a document, and I can e-sign immediately. Without the ability to e-sign, the documents would have to wait until the next day, if not days later," says Nicolas Depasse, assistant director of IT at Le Grand Hôpital de Charleroi. Using cloud e-signatures the hospital complex was able to accelerate the approval process, thereby improving productivity by:
- Quickly getting up and running on e-signature technology within a day or two;
- Sending and processing invoices on time;
- Getting goods and services they needed delivered sooner and put to use faster;
- Eliminating hassle and lost time chasing paper.
