CoSign stands out in the field of digital signature solutions because of its ease of integration and the superior level of security it provides
San Francisco, California (PRWEB) February 13, 2008
ARX (Algorithmic Research), a leading provider of digital signatures (standard electronic signatures) and information assurance solutions, and Cerenade, a global provider of integrated electronic forms management solutions, today announced a partnership that enables all Cerenade E-forms to be digitally signed with CoSign® digital signatures.
The incentive for using electronic forms includes efficient, uniform collection and management of information within a business process, which also saves time and reduces costs when compared to paper-based processes. However, issues with complicated deployments and limited electronic-signing capacities have hindered the adoption of electronic forms for many organizations.
The partnership between ARX and Cerenade integrates the best that CoSign and Cerenade E-forms offer, to remedy the complicating factors that can limit the positive impact of electronic forms on business. The joint venture features the simplicity of Cerenade E-forms' web-based deployment and management, and CoSign's flexible digital signature capabilities--signing one or more sections of the form, without affecting other sections. In addition, CoSign provides the use of a graphical signature, so that each signed document maintains the familiar visual representation of a standard paper-based signature. Finally, CoSign signatures on a Cerenade E-form ensure proof of signer identity and intent, and preserve transaction integrity.
"Form-driven processes are a notably pervasive element in all business workflows. As such, their electronic counterparts (e-forms) can provide a cost-saving alternative that reduces the time and effort associated with paper-intensive procedures," explained Toby Bell, VP of Research, Gartner, Inc. "Digital signatures are a worthy addition to any process utilizing e-forms, in that they enable companies to maintain a fully electronic and secure workflow, and compel further reduction in the use of paper."
"Not only does Cerenade's electronic forms system make bringing forms online easy and affordable, it also enables electronic routing and dovetails perfectly with CoSign for online approvals," explained John Marchioni, VP of Business Development, Americas, ARX. "ARX is pleased to see our CoSign digital signature system integrated with this excellent solution for electronic forms management."
"CoSign stands out in the field of digital signature solutions because of its ease of integration and the superior level of security it provides," said Behdad Payami, VP Sales & Marketing and Co-Founder of Cerenade. "Moreover, CoSign's reputation in the marketplace and track record of success enhance the viability of Cerenade's E-form suite of solutions."
