For paperless people
Going digital has a huge upside, and electronic signatures are no exception. The paper-process burden of printing, posting, signing, returning, copying, filing and physically storing signed documents is obsolete with new digital options to fill, sign and submit, cutting days to weeks out of administration. The digital way makes it quicker and simpler for businesses, governments, organisations such as schools and medical practices, and those they interact with, to validate authorisation. The issue is security and Signmee has the solution: Cipherise.
A digital service without cyber security is like jewellery store without security measures: a risk. Using the right password, anyone can breach confidential data or hijack someone’s online identity. In the case of e-signatures, there’s a danger of a digital imposter fraudulently authorising financial transactions, medical approvals and forms.
To solve digital risk, Signmee has incorporated cyber security and authorisation software Cipherise, developed by Australian company Forticode. Managing Director of Signmee Nicole Bouchier said Cipherise guarantees all parties using their digital signature software are authenticated before seeing, sending or signing a document.
“Signmee together with Cipherise has made forged signatures a thing of the past,” Ms Bouchier said.
“Providing an electronic signature service is only one part of Signmee. Incorporating leading cyber security in our product to protect users from digital identity theft and data breaches is equally important.”
“Signmee takes cyber security seriously – and that doesn’t mean just anti-virus software or a good password, it means that every organisation or individual who either issues or signs a document is checked and authorised by Cipherise to be who they say they are.”
The Cipherise software developed by Forticode transforms a user’s smart phone into a digital key that validates the user and whoever they engage with, ensuring they both are who they claim to be. Cipherise does this by removing the need for a password, replacing it with invisible multi-factor authentication.
Signmee provides an electronic form system capable of replacing paper and semi-electronic systems of form management with an integrated create, send, sign, track and store database system—a single place for businesses, schools or government agencies to manage, track and store all forms requiring an e-signature, and a single place for recipients to complete, sign, send and store the forms they receive.
Signmee requires no special software download, is fully responsive and can be accessed via a browser on any device, making it easy to deploy and use for sender and recipient alike. Forms are easily created using the Signmee form builder and there are also dozens of templates available to copy and adapt. Data received is instantly available for download via standard or custom reports.
Signmee is proven to reduce paper usage, printing costs and also administrative frustrations as forms are complete when they are received and reminders for date and time specific returns are automated.
