Vignature announces the availability of SimplySign, a new web-based document signing service. SimplySign empowers individuals to sign and transmit PDF documents without the use of a fax machine or scanning equipment. In contrast to existing e-signature providers, Vignature utilizes a computer’s webcam to capture an immediate time-specific photograph of the signer at the moment a document is signed.

Until the availability of SimplySign, obtaining verifiable signatures was a tedious and wasteful process. The individual signing a document had to print it, sign it, fax or scan it, or utilize an overnight delivery service to return the document to the originating party. Unless witnessed by a public notary, the originator of the document lacked proof of the signer’s identity. With Vignature’s SimplySign, the need for paper is eliminated and documents can be legally signed and available to both parties within seconds.

Dennis Dayman, Chief Privacy and Security Officer at Eloqua Corp, says, “As someone who gives government testimony to new regulations, it is imperative that I quickly turn around official documents needing signatures. By using SimplySign, I have been able to turn documents back around in minutes versus days. Everyone loves how quickly I can turn around time sensitive materials and they all want to know how I did it, so they can ask others to use it.”

Electronic signatures have been legal since the passage of the ESIGN (The Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce) Act in 2000. However the verifiability of e-signatures varies from vendor to vendor. In a Forrester Research Report, writer Bill Nagel said, “…the validity of e-signatures is settled law. A more important distinction is whether an electronic signing process is secure or not, and the central question becomes “how can I be sure that the person who signed the document is who she claims to be and that no one can repudiate the e-signature?”

With Vignature, the person who signed the document is confirmed with a photograph. A SimplySign user signs a document in three steps; 1) Upload the document 2) Enter name and email address 3) “Click to sign” and pose for a photograph. Shortly after signing, the user receives an email containing the signed document.
