MONTREAL, QC--(Marketwired - May 20, 2014) - Silanis Technology, a leading electronic signature provider, today announced that Pershing LLC, a BNY Mellon company, has approved e-SignLive™ electronic signature service for use by any broker dealer firms looking to complete and process digital forms completely electronically in a secure and convenient manner may submit documents signed using Silanis' e-SignLive.
e-SignLive's comprehensive evidence capture process offers strong evidence to assist with a transaction's legal enforceability by using digital signature technology and embedding the signature audit trail information directly into the e-signed document. This creates a tamper-evident document and helps ensure non-repudiation. Regardless of whether the signature is scripted and captured on an iPad or with a click-to-sign button on the PC, the intent and consent of a signer is captured.
In addition, e-SignLive presents all online documents as they would appear on paper, in the correct order on any web browser, capturing and storing documents and data relevant to the signing process. This ensures that in the case of a dispute, a transaction can be reproduced exactly as it appeared to the signer, demonstrating the appearance and order of all web screens, documents and legal disclosures; how long the person spent on each page; and all actions they took during the review and signing process.
"Customers are going to give their business to broker-dealers who can offer a better on-boarding experience," said Tommy Petrogiannis, CEO and co-founder of Silanis. "With e-SignLive, the customer has the convenience of e-signing remotely or face to face with the broker-dealer, eliminating any missing data or the need to couriering or faxing back and forth -- this greatly improves the investor experience."
Silanis is trusted by some of the most security conscious government, banks and insurance carriers in the world. Today 8 of the top 15 insurance carriers, 8 of the top 20 banks, and the entire U.S. Army as well as the Joint Chiefs of Staff use Silanis' e-signature solutions to transact business and make decisions daily.
