(PRWEB) February 7, 2006
Silanis Technology, the industry’s most experienced electronic signature provider with more than two million consumers and users in business and government, today released a new whitepaper on its online resource center. Entitled “Business Process Integration Meets Electronic Documents and Signatures”, the whitepaper presents the considerations for integrating electronic signing in complex business processes and high-risk transactions over the web.
“Organizations across all industry segments want to leverage the full potential of the web to maximize revenues and streamline costs, but they’ve only taken baby steps so far,” says Michael Laurie, co-founder and vice-president of Silanis Technology. “The most challenging business processes to automate over the web are those requiring the transmission, review or signing of documents, as required by many business processes in Financial Services and Government. That’s the main reason why most web business to-date has been limited to low-risk, credit card transactions.”
The challenge of creating a secure, electronic process that produces compliant business records becomes even more complex as organizations try to figure out how to make the electronic process work with their existing enterprise applications which use paper. The solution, adds Laurie, is to create a platform that pulls together all requirements related to document creation, routing, presentation, signing, delivery and storage, while interacting with current infrastructures.
“Organizations that attempt to build separate, stove pipe applications for each of their lines of business quickly realize that they need a more horizontal application,” explains Laurie. “The benefit of a common platform is that all activities that touch electronic documents and signatures are combined to create a uniform and interoperable process that can be easily extended to all lines of business, partners and customers. This enables organizations to eventually run their entire businesses on web based technologies.”
The whitepaper addresses business process integration in more detail. All previously released whitepapers can also be accessed by visiting Silanis’ electronic signature resource center located at:
