Signature platforms - cloud and on-premise

Business solution

Signature platforms allow customers and private persons who want to sign digitally to upload a file and declare intent for a qualified electronic signature, such as a fingerprint on a mobile phone authentication app. A signature platform's introduction takes place quickly, as a trust service provider already integrates the legally valid electronic signature. Nevertheless, some questions should be clarified in advance:



The success of new digital solutions always depends on their acceptance by employees, customers, and other stakeholders. The solutions must be as simple and intuitive as possible to ensure this.


As soon as several people have to sign a document, things get complicated. If the paper has to be sent by post, unnecessary waiting times arise, and tracking becomes difficult. In a digital process, however, every step of the signature process is directly traceable.


Employees are in the home office, on a business trip, or in another location - all of which can complicate and unnecessarily delay the signing of documents. Businesses today need solutions that enable easy signing from anywhere in real-time.


Corporate documents can take on many different forms, so there is a need for signing solutions that work smoothly regardless of the context and the parties involved - whether internal or external.

Our solutions for signature platforms

Occasional signatures without complex integration

Suppose customers or companies only want to sign documents electronically occasionally or avoid having a complex signature application integrated into their workflows. In that case, signature platforms are the right choice to save valuable time. A signature platform allows users to easily upload, exchange, and download electronically signed digital documents. With this solution, lengthy development or integration projects can be avoided, costs can be reduced, and digital offerings can be brought to market faster.

The simple signing of documents

First, a user uploads the document to be signed to the signature platform. In the second step, the user can define which external or internal persons are invited to sign the document. The signature platform automatically sends the invitations for the signature to the previously defined participants (e.g., by e-mail). Subsequently, all persons on the platform can place their electronic signature on the document and confirm it with their defined means of authentication within a few clicks. The platform informs about the current status at any time and delivers the signed document to all participants as soon as all signatures have been made. Finally, the signed document can be downloaded and processed further.

Location-independent and cross-company signing

Whether in the home office, in the office, or globally distributed company locations - via a signature platform, employees or customers receive the current status of a document version at any time. They can sign it electronically quickly and independently of location. The introduction of a signature platform eliminates unnecessary paper processes and waiting times. At the same time, processes can be made more efficient, and time-consuming administration costs, e.g., scanning or printing, can be minimized.

Smart Registration Service

The Smart Registration Service (SRS) can be connected to a signature platform with a simple interface (API) and offers various flexible options for identification. The SRS takes over the coupling of identification with an authentication method and enables complete electronic signing. This enables end customers to use the qualified electronic signature in the signature platform and to sign digital contracts directly afterward.

Signing Service

The Signing Service is a cloud-based service for remote signatures. It can be easily integrated into a signature platform using the Signing Service standard API. This allows companies to add e-signing capabilities to their cloud or on-premise platform, considering the highly regulated compliance requirements in the respective market.

Authentication Methods

Our authentication methods (e.g., Mobile ID) are the most secure two-factor authentications on the market and enable electronic expression of will and triggering of the electronic signature - whether in the home office or the office. All that is needed is a mobile phone with the authentication method already installed (e.g., mobile ID, banking app, etc.). These methods offer the most timely completion of a digital form process.
