Individuals can use them to complete transactions, from identity verification to signing business contracts to confirming invoices.

Having been in existence for over two decades, e-signatures became extremely common during the pandemic as organisations realised they needed a better way of signing. Two years ago, leaders faced an entirely unpredictable business environment and had to make hard choices to keep operations running. The most innovative ones took the plunge to digitize operations and have reaped the benefits ever since.
