Online financial platforms adds e-signatures to improve transparency, increase security and streamline processes for advisers, accountants and their clients SYDNEY and MELBOURNE – 19 March 2017 VASCO Data Security International, Inc., a global leader in digital solutions including identity, security and business productivity, today announced it has partnered with online financial platform, myprosperity, to bring e-signatures to Australian accountants and financial advisers. Accountants and financial advisers can now offer their clients the convenience of being able to review and electronically sign financial documents with eSignLive™ e-signatures within the myprosperity platform. This ensures full transparency, increased security and a streamlined process for both parties when managing personal finances in the cloud. myprosperity helps keep accountants and financial advisers central to their clients’ management of accounts in a way that improves the client experience. By eliminating the need to leave the portal to sign personal tax returns and statements of advice, clients no longer have to print, scan, fax or mail paperwork or send documents to a separate e-signature solution. With myprosperity and eSignLive, the entire transaction is completed in less time and takes place entirely behind the accountant or adviser’s portal, freeing up accountants and advisers to better service their clients and uncover additional growth opportunities. The automated signing process returns documents complete and error-free directly into the accountant or adviser’s portal. eSignLive secures signed documents with one-click verification and a visual audit trail with detailed information about who signed when and where, ensuring the ability to produce comprehensive electronic evidence should a dispute ever arise. According to Stephen Jackel, CIO of myprosperity, “There’s a wave of change happening in the financial services industry in Australia centred around delivering business digitally, especially document transaction signing, because it’s a key component of the client-adviser relationship. For example, our platform captures upwards of 10,000 signatures annually, so by adding eSignLive, we have the flexibility to provide a completely digital approach to how our partners manage their clients’ finances, while providing the convenience to manage and file their documents in a quicker, more secure and convenient way.” eSignLive Vice President of Sales, Marketing and Services, Ilene Vogt, said, “An increasing number of Australian financial services organisations are moving towards digital transformation to provide a more secure and efficient way of dealing with data and to create a seamless customer experience. What’s fuelling growth in the adoption of the e-signature technology in Australia is the availability of in-country data residency, ensuring Australian data in the cloud is kept under Australian jurisdiction,” he explained.
