Avoid Contract Fraud with Digital Signing

Signing has been a means of document authentication for centuries, and has always been exposed to forging by fraudsters. With Electronic Signatures and Forms Automation you can now resolve some contract fraud issues your business may have suffered, or keep your organisation safer from future attempts at forgery of documents.
While going paperless is an important step towards the digital transformation of a business, to reliably embed security in your document processing infrastructure you need a Digital Transaction Management solution, of which electronic signatures and document workflow automation are an important core element.
However not all electronic signatures are secure. The most secure signatures include, in addition to the handwritten signature, a set of biometric features such as pressure, acceleration, speed, timestamp and GPS coordinates, which are securely attached to the signature’s image within the document. These parameters are unique to every individual and cannot be reproduced, making biometric signatures forensically identifiable. If required, forensic experts can in fact perform a signature verification at any time, using specialised software, to get a Court-admissible result just as they would with a wet signature.

Microelectronic is the Australian distributor and service partner for Namirial, the creator of eSignAnyWhere, a complete Digital Signing solution based on the proven SIGNificant platform by Xyzmo.
