eSignature

Project overview

The COVID-19 pandemic has made it even clearer that signing and approving contracts using a paper-based process, for instance via handwritten signatures, causes unnecessary delays. Therefore, with this project we would like to enable organizations to pragmatically move to a digital signature (eSignature) process. 

No digitalization without digital signatures 

However, when planning and beginning the implementation you, like so many others, might feel overwhelmed by all the information available and the many topics to consider. You might for example ask: what is an eSignature? Is it legally binding? What does good governance look like? Is there a vendor list? What are the pros and cons of specific vendors? What are the most important lessons other companies have already learned? 

We aim to provide useful, vendor-neutral material for a quick start and a white paper with an overview of this topic.
