Transitioning from physical signing to digital signing offers numerous benefits in terms of efficiency, convenience, and cost savings. Understanding your organisation’s needs is crucial when choosing a digital signing solution.


Gain a clear understanding of your organisation’s digital signing requirements, such as the number of documents that need signing, the desired level of security, and mobile accessibility.

Consider the roles of signatories involved, including the number of people who will be signing documents. If you have multiple signatories with different roles, you may need a solution that supports serial or parallel signing workflows and allows for the customization of signing rules.

Assess the security needs of the documents you sign. Determine if your business requires advanced encryption, secure storage of digital certificates, or compliance with specific security standards, particularly if you handle sensitive or confidential information.


Determine whether your business requires mobile accessibility for digital signing. If your signatories frequently work remotely or need to sign documents on the go, consider a solution that offers mobile applications or responsive web interfaces for convenient access.

By thoroughly evaluating these factors, you can select a solution that meets your specific requirements and enhances the efficiency of your signing processes.
