eSignLive to Offer Thought Leadership at Electronic Signature & Records Association Event

November 6, 2013

MONTREAL, QC, November 12, 2013 – As a founding member of the Electronic Signature and Records Association (ESRA), Silanis Technology has confirmed several presentations at the association’s annual conference that will further the company and its customers as thought leaders and shape the direction of the electronic signature industry within financial services. At ESRA’s E-Signatures 2013 conference, Silanis and its customers will take the lead in presenting e-signature best practices based on real-world implementations. These presentations will address identification and authentication, mobility, document management and retention, large-scale implementations and more. They will also demonstrate firsthand how electronic signature technology has solved regulatory challenges facing financial services organizations. The financial services organizations that have chosen to address regulatory challenges using e-signature software have found that by moving customer-facing transactions online, banks, credit unions, lenders and others are able to exercise workflow control and data capture prior to signing. This eliminates errors and missing information from documents that would otherwise require time-consuming follow-up after the fact to correct. With so many financial transactions completed on a mobile device, the ability to close business “in good order” the first time is essential to delivering a better, more efficient and more convenient customer experience. Those attending the ESRA Annual Conference November 14-15 in New York City should take note of the following presentations: Compliance: Understanding E-Signature on Mobile Platforms will feature US Bank Vice President, Technology and Operations Services, John Fraser and Locke Lord Partners Gregory Casamento and Patrick Hatfied as banking, legal and compliance experts on a panel that will highlight how to mitigate the challenges, issues and risks with using mobile. According to Forrester Research, by 2020 the majority of e-signature transactions will be launched from mobile devices. This will accelerate the use of e-signatures and demonstrates the power of consumer demand for the convenience of being able to complete a transaction anytime and anywhere. It also enforces an organization’s ability to improve the customer experience by delivering on the technology customers are demanding. Identity & Authentication: How and Where to Apply To An E-Signature Process will see Silanis’ Vice President and co-founder and founding member of ESRA Michael Laurie moderate a discussion featuring legal experts in the field of e-signed transactions, presenting real-world examples of how e-signatures stand up in court. With authentication being one of the first requirements that organizations must address, especially in light of the growing importance of Know Your Customer (KYC) policies, being able to identify and authenticate a user not currently in an organization’s database is key to keeping electronic transactions compliant and avoiding inadvertently facilitating money laundering. Nearly sold out, this conference is an essential event for those considering selecting and implementing electronic signatures and records. Silanis Technology continues to be a proud sponsor of the annual events.
