CoSign's strong security provisions and its tight integration with Mailhot's network were major factors in our decision

CoSign digital signature software is implemented at Mailhot Industries (Quebec, Canada). With assistance from the leading digital signature company, ARX (Algorithmic Research), the international manufacturer of hydraulic cylinders has expedited processes and secured their workflow.

Engineering design approvals, QA forms, expense reports, and additional business processes require signatures as a part of Mailhot's internal procedures. Prior to Mailhot's implementation of CoSign, the documents were each printed, manually routed for signature purposes, and archived. With the generation of thousands of documents each month, the workflow had become extremely cumbersome, demanding a significant amount of attention simply for support. To remedy the situation, Mailhot decided to utilize CoSign, which offers a Public Key Infrastructure (PKI)-based solution that allowed for the creation of a secure paperless workflow and the integration of their engineering seals.

"CoSign provided us with a standard-based digital signature solution for streamlining our workflow, which also guaranteed that external entities will have no problem reading and validating our files," explained Rejean Belanger, IT Manager at Mailhot Industries. Rejean added, "CoSign's strong security provisions and its tight integration with Mailhot's network were major factors in our decision".

Mailhot's implementation of the CoSign digital signature software has allowed them to turn multiple day processes into procedures that can be completed in just a few hours. CoSign is also saving the company hundreds of dollars each month in paper-related costs. Expense reports and design approvals are now routed electronically and signed digitally, allowing documentation to be reviewed and authorized as quickly as it is prepared.

"Mailhot Industries' use of CoSign highlights the ease with which the CoSign digital signature software can assist an organization that produces thousands of paper documents a month, improve its operational efficiencies, and substantially cut its paper-related costs," said Ari Seror, Director of Professional Services, ARX.
