xyzmo – a global leader in the B2B e-signature market – announced its free App SIGNificant for easily e-signing any PDF document on Android devices. xyzmo expects huge interest from small business owners, professionals or anyone seeking a free and simple way to add a handwritten signature to an electronic document on the go. An internet connection is required to e-sign a PDF with SIGNificant, because the documents are processed online on xyzmo servers.
Given the broad use of smartphones and tablets, it seems old-fashioned to print a document only to physically sign it, then fax or scan the document back into electronic format just to capture a signature. SIGNificant brings signatures into the modern age. Just capture a handwritten signature with SIGNificant on your Android device. It could not be easier, or more secure.
Users simply download the App from the Android market, –https://market.android.com/details?id=com.xyzmo.signature&feature=search_result – open the document or e-mail attachment they want to e-sign on their smartphone or tablet and use their touchscreen to sign the document with a digitized handwritten signature. As an alternative to signing with a finger, users can also use various styluses, which are already available on the market. Users can sign received PDF documents, or obtain a signature from a client themselves. Once e-signing is finished, the e-signed document can be emailed to a user-chosen recipient, stored on the devices or sent to services like Dropbox™.
A captured handwritten signature with SIGNificant 4 Android is much more than just an electronic image of a digitized signature embedded into a PDF. SIGNificant records the handwritten signature of a person using all available parameters like acceleration, speed, pressure and rhythm. These parameters are unique to every individual and cannot be easily reproduced by a forger. Once a signature that includes all of these biometric parameters is captured locally on the device, it is embedded into the PDF and is digitally signed with a digital certificate on the xyzmo servers.
Any recipient of a PDF signed by SIGNificant can verify the signature and content integrity of this PDF anywhere at any time with the free Adobe Reader™, making unrecognized post-signing manipulations impossible.
Enterprises can utilize this xyzmo infrastructure and launch their own e-signature offering, as well as Apps based on it. The infrastructure supports, in addition to Android devices also e-signing on the iPad, traditional signature pads from various manufacturers and electronic signatures for web transactions.
