Biometric signature: a digital signature for signing on a tablet

Many companies have adopted digital document management processes but still face challenges with handling paper documents. Despite progress, some companies continue to collect client signatures using traditional methods.

For instance, when visiting a healthcare facility, patient information is managed in digital medical records, but consent forms for surgeries or payment documents are still signed by hand. This is where the biometric signature becomes an essential technology, enabling the complete elimination of paper documents and ensuring that all processes take place in the digital space.

Use case of biometric signature

Elpako’s biometric signature is designed for in-person client services, allowing documents to be signed on tablets. This platform not only provides high legal protection but also significantly improves the quality of customer service. Clients can conveniently and quickly sign documents anywhere, whether it’s a public service center, an insurance broker’s office, or signing off on a solar power installation acceptance certificate. Using Elpako’s biometric signature, you can completely eliminate paper documents and transition to digital processes.

Features and benefits of the technology

A biometric signature is a digital method for signing documents using a tablet and its stylus. During signing, unique data from the person’s writing movements are collected, including pen tilt angles, pressure, and acceleration, which are encrypted and stored in the document. This ensures a high level of security and legal protection. Elpako’s biometric signature complies with ISO/IEC 19794-7:2021 and eIDAS regulations, guaranteeing reliability and legality throughout the European Union.

It’s important to understand that electronic signatures are often just an image of a signature, not a real electronic signature. Such an image cannot be authenticated as belonging to a specific person and holds no legal power. In contrast, Elpako’s biometric signature ensures a high level of security by collecting the person’s graphometric data during signing. In case of doubts about forgery or disputes, forensic experts can conduct a graphometric analysis to assess the validity of the signature. This signing method is legally binding and is regarded as equivalent to a handwritten signature.

More than just a signature

Elpako’s team has developed a meticulously crafted platform that not only enables the collection of biometric signatures but also ensures the highest quality of service for your clients. This solution is designed with real daily challenges in mind, offering convenient and necessary features. These help to optimize workflows, simplify document management, and enhance the customer experience at every touchpoint with the company.

Using artificial intelligence (AI), you can easily perform data searches and integrate storage solutions with popular tools like Google Drive, Dropbox, SharePoint, and other systems. This feature allows you to have all necessary documents in one place and access them quickly at any time.
