Spotlight on zipLogix’s TouchSign

March 26 2014

zipLogix has long been an established leader in forms. They recently upped their already substantial value with digital signatures. Their solution, Digital Ink, deserves a closer look; today, we'll focus on just one feature from Digital Ink: TouchSign.

TouchSign is a feature of the mobile edition of zipLogix, available for the iPad, BlackBerry PlayBook and all Android tablets. It allows in-person signing directly on the iPad.

Besides the obvious benefit of convenient, anywhere signing, TouchSign offers the additional benefit of easing clients' fears about eSignatures. The signing method – using a finger directly on the touchscreen – feels more like a traditional pen and paper signature. This might help nervous clients feel more comfortable. If they're still reluctant, you can also remind them that digital signatures are perfectly legal and entirely secure.

Another benefit of TouchSign is that you have less to carry. You know how it goes – with a traditional signing, you'd have to pile a bunch of documents or files into your arms or briefcase, then dig around for what needs to be signed. Instead, with TouchSign (and other electronic signature solutions), all you need to bring is your slender little tablet. It's easier for you and makes a nice, tech-savvy, streamlined impression.

There's a lot to be said for digital signatures that integrate with transaction management. With, TouchSign you can review and sign and then save into zipVault or share with the next person who has to review the document. They receive it almost instantly, which (let's face it) is the pace of business today. Everyone associated with the transaction will thank you for keeping things moving so quickly.

Security is important for digital signatures, so this is a good time to remind you to password-protect your iPad if you're using a mobile eSign solution. If someone steals your tablet, you want to be sure it's password-protected so that they can't access private data. The Privacy Act requires you to do things you probably don't want to do in the event of a security breach, so it's better to just keep any breaches from occurring in the first place.
