E-signature is the best solution

Person using e-signature

Do you spend a lot of time and resources managing signatures and signed documents? There are no good reasons not to make the leap to using e-signatures in 2023. Simple, resource-saving, and not least environmentally friendly.

🤔 What is an e-signature?

Electronic signature, also called e-signature, can be compared to a normal physical signature with pen and paper, only that the signing is carried out electronically. This means that it is carried out using a PC, tablet or mobile phone.

There are two different ways to do this. You can enter your signature with your finger directly on the screen, as you would with pen on paper (possibly with the mouse pointer, if there is no touch screen). Otherwise, you can sign by simply entering your name and the system will create a signature that represents your signature. Instead of paper, you sign a PDF file.

🔒 Is it safe?

An e-signature is more secure than many might imagine. In fact, in many cases it is even more secure than a paper signature. The reason for this is that it will often be more difficult to forge an electronic signature.

Before a document is sent for e-signature from, the sender must verify their email on the platform. The sender can also verify their identity with BankID for an even greater degree of security.

In addition, the signatory is verified via their e-mail address. This way you can be sure that both sender and signer are who they say they are.

⚖️ But what about the legal side?

Many people feel unsure whether entering into an agreement with an electronic signature has the same legal protection as a physical one on paper. The answer is that yes, it has. An e-signature is just as binding, in the eyes of the law, as signing a document with pen and paper.

A European law ensuring the validity of e-signatures has existed since 1999 (Directive 1999/93/EC). Since 2016, the eIDAS regulation has also established a standard across all EU/EEA countries, which ensures recognition of electronically signed documents on an equal basis in the various countries.

Outside the EU/EEA, slightly different rules apply, but electronic signatures are recognized in most countries, including (but not limited to) the USA, Canada, Australia, Great Britain, China, Brazil, Mexico, South Africa, etc.
