Berlin, 16 April 2019 – At the end of 2018, the last module of the eIDAS Regulation (“electronic IDentification, Authentication and trust Services”) came into force. This obliges all public institutions in Europe to recognise electronic identification systems (the eID function). This represents an important step towards driving growth in the internal European digital market and simplifying business processes.
Business without borders
Solutions such as FP Sign guarantee the required security level for digital signatures, and meet the requirements of the eIDAS Regulation. “Our cloud-based platform for digital signatures, FP Sign, is available immediately in six languages, enabling the confidential exchange and legally compliant signing of contracts,” says Patricius de Gruyter, Member of the Board at Francotyp-Postalia Holding AG and expert in multi-channel communication. “Thanks to the new feature, it is now even simpler for companies and private users to conclude transactions across various national borders.” In addition to German, FP Sign is now also available in English, Swedish, French, Dutch, and Italian.
Fast and uncomplicated
Irrespective of platform, whether PC, smartphone or tablet, Android or iOS: users from international industries such as financial services, HR management, and logistics can conclude binding digital contracts with the greatest possible data security. With just a few clicks, it is possible to conclude a large number of legally valid contracts. De Gruyter explains, “We are thus boosting competitiveness in the age of digitalisation and internationalisation.” Thanks to the eIDAS-compliant remote signature functionality, FP Sign allows a qualified electronic signature (QES) – card readers, signature cards, and hardware or software are no longer required. The signature is created by a trust service provider, provided that the identity of the signatory has been confirmed once.
FP is continuously expanding the features of its signature solution. For example, the countersignatories can attach appendices to their document in the current version. Moreover, FP Sign supports all conventional Office documents, such as DOC(X) and PPT(X) files, as well as image formats, which are automatically converted into PDF format. To ensure that the users place their signature or initials in the right place, FP Sign also allows binding positioning to be defined.
De Gruyter explains, “Our signature solution is secure, simple and convenient. It is uncomplicated to implement, customers register to use it on the homepage of FP Sign.” FP Sign can also be integrated into a company’s ERP or CRM systems. Recipients invited to an electronic signing process do not need to be FP Sign customers themselves. They are sent a secure link, and can sign digitally
