One Span Sign E-Signatures Q2 2020 Updates

Remote Signing Capabilities and COVID-19

The U.S. government passed a $2 trillion stimulus package known as the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES Act) to help boost the economy in response to COVID-19. Under the CARES Act, The Small Business Administration (SBA) distributed over $350 billion in loans to small businesses towards job retention and business operating expenses.

OneSpan can help SBA-approved lenders accelerate the processing time and execution of loan approvals to get loan funds in the hands of small business owners faster. OneSpan Sign complies with the e-signature requirements outlined by the Office of Financial Assistance, U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) Appendix 8 of SOP 50 10 5 K. This includes the types of signature supported by OneSpan Sign, required authentication methods, capturing signer intent, and records retention and distribution.

Supporting Remote Online Notarization (RON) Requirements with eNotary

Traditionally, the notarization process is completed in-person between the Notary and signer. Due to  social distancing protocols, demand for Remote Online Notarization (RON) and the need to complete the full notarization process online is on the rise.

Since COVID-19, states have enacted emergency short-term measures to enable RON and to help Notaries carry out their duties remotely with signers.

With a rise in adoption in e-signatures and the need to complete documents remotely, OneSpan can help streamline the RON process with the OneSpan Sign eNotary feature. eNotary allows notaries in approved state jurisdictions to electronically witness, sign, and seal documents in a face-to-face scenario with signers. To meet Remote Online Notarization requirements, OneSpan Sign eNotary can be used in conjunction with web conferencing software to help meet the legal requirements specified for your state jurisdiction.

Contact us to learn how we can help your organization support Remote Online Notarization with eNotary and KBA capabilities. If you’re an existing OneSpan customer, contact your OneSpan Account Manager or Customer Success Representative to start using the OneSpan Sign eNotary feature today.

Updated E-Signature Features and Capabilities to Help Signers Complete Documents Remotely

Capture Signature: Need a handwritten signature for your documents? OneSpan Sign users can leverage the Capture Signature option to obtain handwritten signatures from signers. Capture Signature gives signers the flexibility to review documents on their PC and then provide a handwritten signature using their mobile device. Your signers can transform their mobile device into a signature capture pad to create a handwritten signature using their finger or stylus pen. Read our blog post or watch the video below to learn how senders and signers can use the Capture Signature method in documents.

Group Signing: The Group Signing feature allows OneSpan Sign administrators to configure groups with members of a department. When a transaction is sent to the predefined group, any member of the group can access the email and sign the document on behalf of the group. By allowing multiple members to share signing responsibility, transactions sent to a group can be completed more quickly.
