About SigningHub

SigningHub is a complete solution for document approval workflows, advanced digital signatures and document status tracking. It is designed to quickly optimise the way businesses deliver, review, approve and sign their business documents. It is available as a software product for on-premise hosting as well as public or private cloud service.

Paper-based ink signing is no longer an effective tool for document approval in today’s competitive digital business environment. Implementing digital signatures services through SigningHub delivers value on many fronts:

  • Increases process efficiency – shorten your sales cycle by signing online & reduce customer drop-off rates when waiting for ink signatures; free your staff to do core business rather than chase paper.
  • Cut paper-related costs – printing, couriering, faxing, scanning, searching for paper documents & archiving are all time-consuming and expensive processes. On top of this ink signatures are insecure which can lead to fraud, compliance failure costs, heavy fines & reputation damage.
  • Increase security – ensure the digital identities of your transacting parties are verified securely and signed documents are cryptographically locked from unauthorised change; ensure legal certainty using an undisputable evidence trail.
  • Eliminate errors and re-work – by putting the approval process online SigningHub can prevent documents from being submitted with missing signatures, initials or incomplete form fields.
  • Increase visibility – track the true status of your documents, know with certainty that your documents were indeed received, reviewed and signed by each signatory with the exact date/time each action was performed based on trusted time server.
  • Provide a great user experience – make life simpler and save time for your customers, employees & business partners by doing business smartly. Demonstrate your digital security innovativeness and ultimately increasing your brand loyalty.
