Advantages of electronic signature solutions

PDF is the most common format for long-term archiving, as this is backwards-compatible and is displayed in the same way on all platforms. Subsequent changes are not possible or immediately apparent.

With an electronic signature solution, many business processes can be digitised. Environmentally-friendly work and a saving of resources are just some of the many positive effects of digitalisation. Likewise, it increases customer satisfaction and thus creates a competitive advantage.

Validity of the PDF signature

The verification value of the inSign signature has been examined by an officially qualified handwriting expert and has received a positive assessment by way of expert opinion. All legal requirements such as GDPR, eIDAS, German Civil Code (BGB) and the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) are fulfilled.
