CommunityLeader, the nation’s premier provider of funding portal platform software and services for the growing online securities market, has added digital signature company SIGNiX to its growing list of integrated partners. SIGNiX provides a leading digital signature solution and has integrated with CommunityLeader’s Apicista platform to allow crowdfunding portals to provide issuers and investors a seamless and compliant way to sign securities documents.

“SIGNiX’s technology provides our portal clients an integrated solution for digital signatures, which meets the regulatory requirements of an online securities transaction,” said Joseph Barisonzi, CEO of CommunityLeader. “Integrated with our crowdfunding engine—Apicista—the SIGNiX solution provides a cost effective and time sensitive investor experience.”

With the SIGNiX solution, both investors and companies raising money will be able to legally sign investment documents on any device with an Internet connection. “SIGNiX’s EnterpriseDoX is market-tested for timely and legal delivery of documents,” said Steven Bettis, senior vice president of sales at SIGNiX. “Our technology will allow CommunityLeader to provide investors, issuers and portal operators a solution they can trust.”

Crowdfunding is emerging as an innovative way to reduce costs and increase access to private capital for startups and growing businesses. With a projected market of up to $300 billion, crowdfunding is bringing dramatic innovations to the private capital markets and substantial new opportunities for entrepreneurs and funders worldwide.

“Scanning, printing, notarizing, faxing and shipping are often labor-intensive and can’t match the efficiency and time-savings produced by an integrated digital signature solution,” said Scott Bachman, chief marketing officer of CommunityLeader. “Moreover, traditional electronic signatures fail to meet the required thresholds in our heavily regulated environment.”

“We’re looking forward to working with crowdfunding leaders like the team at CommunityLeader,” continued Bettis. “Our technology will be part of achieving their vision of a crowdfunding platform that clearly sets a new bar for compliance and user experience.”
