Dallas, TX (PRWEB) May 09, 2011
Vignature announces the immediate availability of its image based electronic signature service. The service provides a way for businesses to get legally binding signatures online. Unlike conventional e-signature companies, Vignature captures a signature supported by a time-specific photographic image of the signer.
Vignature aims to reduce the $7.4 billion spent annually on overnighting documents for signatures by offering a secure internet solution. Electronic signatures have been legal since the enactment of the Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act (ESIGN) in 2000; however, there has not been widespread adoption of e-signatures due to concerns regarding identification of parties involved.
A 2008 study published in Rutgers Computer and Technology Law Journal reports that with conventional electronic signatures “one does not know who actually affixed the electronic signature.” Vignature provides a solution to this problem by adding photographic verification.
Matt Spradley, CEO of Vignature, said “With conventional electronic signatures you don’t know who’s on the other end of the mouse click. Our electronic signatures retain a specific identifier, an image of the signer. The image provides an audit trail, in cases where the signature is questioned.”
With Vignature, anyone with a web browser can upload and email a document for signature. The recipient of the email can review the document, and “click to sign” from a computer, smart phone, or iPad. An image of the signer is captured in real time through a webcam, as he “clicks to sign.”

Vignature was founded in February 2011 by Matt Spradley, Scott Roberts, and Kelly Spradley. Based in Dallas, Texas the corporation serves businesses throughout the United States.
