What is an Electronic Signature?

E-Sign’s digital signatures are 100% legally binding, indicating the signer’s intent to agree to the content of a document or a set of data to which the signature relates.

Our advanced signature capture technology means that all our digital signatures are 100% verifiable and backed by a unique digital certificate. We provide a full audit trail, incorporating key identifiers. E-Sign’s platform is secured via 256bit SSL encryption.

E-Sign supports most document file types such as Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint and PDF – ensuring all your important documents including your own current documents can be sent for electronic signature.
