Today’s financial industry is constantly looking for new safety-enhancing technological solutions.

It is also used to authenticate documents online, so that they do not need to be printed, which improves document workflows within the company.

Read our post and learn what is a qualified electronic seal and how can be used in the financial industry.

What is a qualified electronic seal?

A digital seal is an electronic “stamp” of an organisation. Technically, it is data in electronic form (seal) attached to electronic documents in order to guarantee its authenticity and immutability. It serves as proof that a document has been issued by a legal entity and provides assurance of its origin. Which means that when using the seal, you are certifying on behalf of the company, not as an individual.

The qualified electronic seal offered by SIGNIUS is a real breakthrough that makes work easier and faster.

Furthermore with SIGNIUS you can fully personalize the seal’s appearance (graphical representation of a seal) and be certain that it is used only by authorized individuals in your company.

The financial business in particular, not only for the convenience of its customers, but also because of regulations, should consider to implement that sort of solution as a good practice.
