Signature on tablet - Biometric signature - secrypt GmbH

  • Familiar signature: with pen on tablet instead of paper
  • No more printing, signing and scanning
  • In patient admission, in customer contracts, in internal organization processes

This is how it works

Using a pen and tablet and the digiSeal®signature software, individual signature features (“biometric data”: e.g. writing pressure, writing speed, writing acceleration) are captured and embedded in the digital PDF document, taking data protection into account.

For the implementation of complex signature processes in a company with high compliance requirements, the tablet signature can also be combined with a qualified electronic signature using a signature card (“combined signature”).
