Aspects to consider when evaluating an electronic signature solution for business

Although it is a tool that helps to boost business, in some cases, a poor choice of the type of signature and/or the most suitable solution for electronic signatures are often the main reasons why companies fail with the implementation of electronic signatures. 

In this article we talk about the risks of choosing the wrong electronic signature solution, what aspects should be taken into account for the right choice and what are the advantages of Uanataca's electronic signature solutions. 


Electronic signature: risks for your business derived from a bad choice 

The implementation of an electronic signature solution in an organization is not a trivial matter. A wrong choice can cause significant financial losses and even, sometimes, reputational crises and damages of various kinds to customers, employees and other actors present in the business activity. 


Beyond possible reputational crises, an inadequate choice could generate other considerable problems for your organization. Proof of this is the recent judgment 74/2021, in which the Spanish courts acquitted the defendant of the payment of a loan that was not signed by means of a qualified electronic signature certificate. 

To avoid such harmful situations, it is necessary to assess the risk that we are willing to assume when choosing one type of signature or another. Therefore, in those documents in which it is necessary for the electronic signature to stand on its own as full proof and even reverse the burden of proof, the qualified electronic signature is the most appropriate option.  

In addition to the appropriate type of signature, when a company decides to integrate electronic signatures into its processes, it must choose the solution that best suits its needs and contributes to its development. To this end, when making the choice, it must evaluate decisive aspects such as the particular guarantees offered by the provider, security and privacy, as well as other aspects relating to services such as their agility, simplicity and user experience.

If we want to successfully digitize the signature processes of our business, we must have solutions that are adapted for companies.

Security and maximum guarantees

In this article we have talked about sentence 74/2021, a case of passivity or lack of response from the supplier to answer the requirements that were formulated, as established in the sentence. Therefore, the reliability of the supplier and the guarantees it offers is an aspect to take into account when evaluating an electronic signature solution. 

When choosing a supplier, it is not enough just to assess whether it is a widely distributed platform. Particular attention must be paid to the reliability it offers, the support it provides and its ability to provide advice during all stages of the digitization process.
