Our e-signatures and seals offer many opportunities in distribution, but also challenges. One of the main advantages of SIGN8 e-signatures is the time and cost savings, as contracts and agreements can be signed online. This speeds up the sales process and improves customer satisfaction.
However, there are also challenges with the use of e-signatures and seals. Some clients may still prefer to use physical signatures and seals as they offer them a higher level of security. These concerns can be addressed with SIGN8’s e-signatures and seals, as we are not only an official Trusted Service Provider (TSP), but are also allowed to offer a signature certified by the German Federal Network Agency – the qualified e-signature (QES). Thus, we meet all required EU security standards and can offer legally valid and simple e-signatures and seals to our customers. In addition, there is also a lot of progress in the development of security and authentication technologies for electronic signatures and seals. We as SIGN8 GmbH use different security levels, such as epsw. 2-fold authentication, which can be done by an identity check or the generation of a one-time password (OTP).
Overall, electronic signatures and seals in sales offer many opportunities for companies to optimise processes and increase customer satisfaction. While there are still challenges, the technology continues to advance and offers a lot of potential for companies that can use these technologies effectively.
