How Easy is it to Integrate Electronic Signatures?

Mary Ellen Power, November 27, 2013

In the fast pace of the modern business society, any technology that makes life easier is bound to be warmly appreciated. Without wishing to revert to the old adage that time is of the essence, it has become the key element in establishing a chain of functionality across a number of industry sectors, with electronic signatures an accepted part of this reworking of business practices.

While the adoption of e-signatures as a means of capturing intent and control of vital documentation is becoming more prevalent, the ease of integration is one barrier that may seem hard to cross for those used to a more paper-based trail. However, when we consider that most business leaders have already accepted the benefits of a digital working landscape, then it follows that implementing technology that dovetails with 21st century working practices is a logical next step.

To put it simply, adding electronic signatures to existing business technology should be at the top of the agenda for any company wanting to quickly and easily complete business 100 percent electronically.

Easy as 1-2-3

In a recent blog post, Silanis's own Etienne Hardy explained just how easy it is to provide businesses with a customized e-signing experience, especially when taking into consideration the need for companies to integrate the software into a homegrown or third-party system. One of the aspects that differentiates Silanis' technology from other e-signature vendors, Hardy explained, is that it does not rely on simply having an "I Agree" functionality, with the creation of an e-sign transaction part of an overall integration or alignment service that can be achieved in a relatively short space of time.

What makes Silanis' e-signature software built on digital signature technology even more impressive is that it can be used over a variety of delivery devices, with automated signing processes available to field operatives as well as office-based workers. This ensures that companies remain mobile - in every sense of the word - and allows for the user to quickly access stored templates, a natural development that encourages the fast tracking of documents that may have been previously held up in a more traditional (and likely paper-centric) system.

For those who have already adopted electronic signature as a business tool, its ongoing benefits are obvious. Not just quick, easy and efficient, it is an essential component in the race to keep up with the pace of modern life.
