CoSign not only provided us with a digital signature capacity that allowed us to actualize our web-based application, it also expedited a much more cost-effective and accurate system than the original multi-tiered paper-based system.
San Francisco (PRWEB) September 23, 2008
ARX (Algorithmic Research), a leading provider of digital signature (standard electronic signature) solutions, announced today that GlobalVetLink, an innovator of the national standardized method for secure and web-based animal health certification, has received USDA approval for their use of electronic signatures. Prior to their approval, GlobalVetLink implemented ARX's CoSign digital signature solution with web-based e-health certificate service. Previously, GlobalVetLink accomplished a similar achievement using CoSign to meet FDA electronic signature requirements.
Their implementation of the CoSign digital signature solution assisted GlobalVetLink's development of an internet-based animal health system, which allows veterinarians and diagnostic laboratories to more efficiently and accurately complete the regulatory requirements for interstate animal movement and EIA (Coggins) testing via an electronic capacity.
"The success at GlobalVetLink further validates that CoSign is the ideal solution for both web-based application service providers and organizations with new service offerings that need to affordably progress from startup to full capacity," explained Rodd Schlerf, Life Science and Healthcare Market Manager, ARX.
GlobalVetLink's original decision to implement CoSign stemmed from the fact that the PKI-based digitally-signed documents that CoSign creates exceed any specific requirement of the USDA, thus assuring compliance with all regulations and standards set by the organization.
Kevin Maher, President, at GlobalVetLink explained, "CoSign not only provided us with a digital signature capacity that allowed us to actualize our web-based application, it also expedited a much more cost-effective and accurate system than the original multi-tiered paper-based system."
