All types of digital signature features, legally valid

Digital transformation has brought many advantages and changes in the way we work and do business. Paper processes are less common and digital solutions are emerging. Administrative procedures are now easier and faster and wet signatures are being replaced by electronic signatures.

Numbers show that eSignatures have grown fast. According to the data collected by Statista, there has been a 20% increase from 2009 to 2017 in Spanish companies, reaching its peak at 77.1%.

According to eIDAS Regulation, digital signatures are legally valid and can be used for electronic documents, therefore this tool has become more important in the business world.

Our eSignature features

Apart from being legally valid , our electronic signatures offer more advantages. First, digitization means cost savings, since it automates processes. Therefore, it is not necessary to close deals on-site, as contracts can be signed remotely.

In addition to the cost savings, users can reach agreements on-the-go. This is a major advantage for the sales team, especially those who are constantly moving.

Versatility is also a major feature. Sometimes human intervention is not necessary for a contract to be signed.

Below are our types of digital signature features:

Types of digital signature features supported by Viafirma
  • Server-based signature: Automated signature without required user interaction and placed once the parties have reached an agreement.
  • Face-to-face signature: Refers to the traditional signing process, where all signatories are on-site.
  • Bulk signing: A single request that includes several documents allowing the user to sign them in one go. This type of signature is useful for executives who need to sign stacks of documents that have been previously reviewed by someone else.
  • Multi-signature: In this case, there is only one document that must by signed by two people.
  • Bulk multi-signature: Similar to the multi-signature, but in this case there is more than one document involved in the signing process.
  • Centralized signature: It’s a secure and confortable signature. It allows to store your digital certificate on a secure server so the owner can use it anywhere, anytime, on any device through robust authentication.
