Last week was the 7th anniversary of the launch of viafirma mobile, a global milestone, for being the first platform that allowed the electronic signature of documents from Android, iPhone and iPad. Today, we wanted to dedicate this post to remember this launch and the characteristics of this solution.
On July 29, 2010, Viafirma mobile was born with the intention of satisfying the need for mobile signature that had all those users that increasingly interacted from mobile devices, in response to the increasing demand for mobility that we have in most sectors.
Authentication, traditionally, was produced from desktops or laptops. However, there was an imminent need for mobility solutions that allowed the signature from any device, to adapt to the reality of what society was requesting. Viafirma was able to detect this need and satisfy it by launching viafirma mobile.
So, Viafirma mobile was the first platform capable of supporting the authentication and digital signature on Android and iOS. Allowing users to identify themselves with their digital signature in different web applications from their device. This was a milestone in terms of mobility.
The utility of the mobile digital signature is reflected in the ability to authenticate the user in those web portals that require identification by digital signature. It is here where viafirma mobile has much to offer. It is important to remember that for this, the mobile version of the web portal is required to accept the advanced digital signature.
Viafirma mobile is currently available in all markets and can be used from any mobile device. With this we guarantee the principle of technological neutrality established in Law 11/2007.
If you are not very familiar with the term technological neutrality, this refers to the possibility that users must have to interact with public entities and the Electronic Administration from any device and operating system with the same guarantees. As you can imagine, this is not always true. However, viafirma mobile guarantees the technological neutrality as you can see in this matrix of compability.
The main objective of all viafirma solutions is to make life easier for users in this process of digital transformation in which we are still immersed. So, the user experience is one of the values that we take into account and viafirma mobile was no exception.
To ensure this optimal user experience, we chose to develop native apps for each market, guaranteeing better performance and usability. Therefore, we have from the beginning with teams specialized in Android and iOS. Likewise, we have developers specialized in Windows 10 who have developed the native app of viafirma mobile.
The evolution of viafirma mobile from 2010 to today has been incredible. In fact a few days ago we announced that our application already supports the DNI 3.0 with itd NFC functionality for Android .
Other improvements that have been included since the first version are:
- The electronic signature is bearable in any operating system of those that are currently in the market.
- Integrated applications with our current version allow direct and free electronic signature and authentication from tablets and smartphones.
- It allows the signature through digital certificate or advanced biometric signature.
