ARGO and eSignLive Partner to Deliver Integrated Paperless Processing in Enterprise Sales, Service and Lending with eSignLive™ E-Signatures

October 22, 2014

Banks and credit unions can now offer a better customer experience while reducing inefficiencies and costs with 100 percent electronic processing.

(Richardson, TX and Montreal, QC) – October 23, 2014ARGO, a leader in mission-critical and analytical software for financial services, fraud detection and prevention, and healthcare, and Silanis Technology, the e-signature choice for business, announced today a partnership to integrate e-signature service e-SignLive™ by Silanis into ARGO’s solutions beginning with Sales & Service and Lending. With banks, credit unions and lenders under pressure to offer modern and convenient methods for conducting business, this partnership gives financial institutions a solution to integrate a truly paperless workflow directly into customer setup, account opening, customer and account maintenance, and loan origination and closing processes. By empowering financial institutions to easily add electronic signatures to customer-facing transactions, the costs and manual steps associated with paper processing, review, scanning, indexing, and storing disappear. Implementing a paperless solution also eliminates geographic and physical limitations of paper processes and provides alternative channels for servicing customers outside of the branch. In addition, utilizing a paperless solution that incorporates workflow and controls strengthens an institution’s legal and compliance position by capturing and reproducing stronger evidence than is possible with pen and paper. “Partnering with Silanis is an integral part of our paperless strategy. The evidentiary process for e-signatures is integral to its success, and Silanis is well recognized in this area. Working together, we will provide best practices and leadership for our customer’s as they adopt this capability,” said Max Martin, ARGO CEO. “E-signatures give our customers a powerful option to streamline loan origination, contract fulfillment, account setups, notifications, or disclosures – anything requiring a customer acknowledgement or signature.” “Silanis’ partnership with ARGO brings e-signatures full circle,” said Silanis CEO and co-founder Tommy Petrogiannis. “Each company has been working with these top financial institutions individually, and now we’ve teamed up to deliver better customer service with a pre-integrated solution,” continued Petrogiannis. ARGO Lending and Sales & Service solutions offer financial institutions highly flexible prospecting, sales, loan origination, and customer management solutions to increase operational efficiency and revenue potential. Silanis is the most widely used e-signature solution, helping enterprises accelerate business transactions and reduce costs while improving compliance with legal and regulatory requirements. e-SignLive by Silanis is the e-signature solution of choice for eight of the top 20 banks in North America, including U.S. Bank, RBC Royal Bank, Wells Fargo, Santander and Signature Bank. Silanis is also the preferred e-signature vendor for the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) and counts numerous credit unions, including Teachers Credit Union, Sharonview Federal Credit Union, Interior Savings and Orion Federal Credit Union.
