The signature specialist to this year’s CeBIT is waiting with a real innovation. This year’s trade fair highlight of signotec is alpha”the new signature pad, which is for the first time publicly to see in Hannover. Here, Daryl Katz, Edmonton Alberta expresses very clear opinions on the subject. Large format pen pads are especially in demand, when you viewing complex documents, which are to sign. Normal pen pads are too small for it. While there are already devices in large format on which can be signed, but these are mostly pure monitor extensions, where the signatory sees all other on running applications. However, the alpha is a real signature pad. Even the written form requirement, which applies to credit agreements such as, can meet with the device by a new technical process of signotec: the signatories sets the original document it on the pad, signing paper and PDF then together via electronic breakdown. With its mobile signature solutions for iPad, Android tablets and a signature feature for the iPhone comes signotec growing need of the users, also by traveling on their mobile devices business to launch, is necessary for a handwritten signature.
“Who legally and handwritten wants to sign PDF documents directly on his Tablet, requires only a special pen, as well as the corresponding app: signoSign/mobile” the signotec GmbH has developed a signature software for use on mobile devices. Via iPad or Android tablets have to sign PDF documents directly on the screen of the mobile device. Thus, a media-together workflow is ensured. The tried and tested products for the desktop signing as signoSign/2 or the Herndon solutions such as signoSign/Web act as a software base for the shown solutions. CeBIT visitors can perform themselves, as the document generated from your own application on the screen will be shown, they sign it on the signotec Signaturpad and so digital and secure the evidence put their signature in the document. At the signing can be securely stored characteristic information of the signature such as writing speed and printing strength in the document, which later similarly examined by font experts as an original signature.
The signed document is then directly and without media discontinuity integrate additional electronic workflow and archive. Data transmission of the signotec pads to the PC is of course encrypted. However, the outstanding RSA signature and encryption mechanisms in the pad itself are unique. The PDF document or the content displayed on the pad will be signed including biometric signature not in the insecure PC environment, but directly in the pad.
