CeBIT: Mentana-Claimsoft unveils secure signature solution FP-Sign

Sign contracts and other sensitive documents in compliance with the law and confidentially exchange them – with a solution that combines process efficiency with maximum user-friendliness and security 


Hanover, 20 March 2017 – IT security specialist FP Mentana-Claimsoft, a subsidiary of listed company Francotyp-Postalia Holding AG, today gave the greenlight for FP Sign at the CeBIT after Manag-ing Director Stephan Vanberg unveiled the new signature solution in a presentation. It enables users to sign contracts and other documents in compliance with the law – and then confidentially exchange them via a secure cloud platform.

Sign and exchange with just a few clicks

"With FP Sign we are finally making many, hitherto paper-based workflows involving sensitive documents digital," explains Vanberg. According to an FP efficiency report, around 80% of companies in Germany are still sending confidential documents using traditional letters either very often or often. Likewise contracts, quotations or orders are still frequently printed, signed and sent by post for signing. If there are several contracting parties involved, perhaps even in dif-ferent countries, it can quickly take a couple of weeks just to sign an agreement.

"With FP Sign, we are shortening the long-drawn-out process of sign-ing and exchanging documents to just a few clicks. FP Sign gives all users involved in the process access from anywhere in the world 24/7," says Vanberg. "With more than 20 years of experience working with signatures, we can also advise our customers if they want to ac-celerate their business processes."

From single user to large enterprise

Companies in Germany and Europe can thus take advantage of the opportunities from digitalisation. They can also maintain their data sovereignty: FP Sign data centres are all located in Germany and certified by the German Federal Office for Information Security. FP Sign is offered as Software as a Service (SaaS) for users who want to book directly online: single users have access to FP Sign for just EUR 9 per month. Enterprise customers have a licence-based range at their disposal, with convenient modules and the option of directly working from popular CRM applications.

Advanced and qualified electronic signatures

FP Sign allows documents to be signed, for example, with an ad-vanced signature which is valid for most business transactions. The qualified electronic signature (qeS) is integrated via an additional module: the "FP Sign Client App". This satisfies the legal requirements for certain types of documents, such as staff transfer agreements. The transmission routes are encrypted and ensure secure transmission between sender and receiver.
