Single Enterprise Electronic Signature Platform Helps Eliminate Paper Not Control

The first enterprise electronic signature platform supporting multiple high-volume processes and document delivery was introduced Monday by Silanis Technology. Government and commercial organizations are able to license a single customizable platform founded on ApproveIt(R), a sixth generation technology combining the security of a digital signature with a legally enforceable process, as well as advanced automation and usability features.

“Our customers repeatedly tell us that they want control of the delivery, presentation and signing of documents, and ultimately, the customer experience, by bringing the technology under the same roof as their other mission-critical systems,” Michael Laurie, co-founder and vice president of Silanis, said in a prepared statement.

Interoperability is a key advantage of the enterprise platform. It provides seamless integration with customers’ applications and supports transactions involving a wide variety of file formats used online and in point-of-sale environments ensuring all related legal and compliance requirements are met. The U.S. Army and many federal, state and local agencies already use Silanis solutions. More than 1,110 government and commercial organizations, representing two million users, depend on Silanis’ solutions to accelerate operations, improve service and reduce costs.

“As the most experienced electronic signature provider, with more than two million government and commercial users, Silanis is uniquely positioned to empower our customers with both proven methodology and a comprehensive platform for eliminating paper from business processes once and for all,” Laurie continued.

The Army, for example, has realized significant value, having brought together key technology investments to ensure the highest levels of user and data authentication, including Department of Defense (DoD) Public Key Infrastructure (PKI), real-time CRL verification using OCSP, Common Access Card (CAC), electronic forms and Silanis electronic signatures. This has helped the Army reduce the time, risk and cost of authorizing mission-critical, defense activities worldwide.
