Join Zylpha & Sinerix for a quick 30 minute overview of the VirtualSignature platform that can be accessed directly from within Visualfiles. This innovative system has been taking the UK legal marketplace by storm, and with Zylpha’s native Visualfiles integration it’s easier than ever to deliver an exceptional service to clients.
VirtualSignature offers a secure platform which can be integrated easily into existing software, enabling users to both electronically sign and send documents and also conduct ID checks using bio-metric facial recognition and geo-location technology which could reliably identify the signer. Aside from the obvious benefits of moving to paper-free solutions, many organisations, particularly in the legal sector displayed a need for compliant, secure technology to help them streamline their workflow and ultimately provide a better customer experience, through the ability to perform these checks and tasks using a laptop, tablet or mobile phone.
Our aim was to offer professional organisations a choice of applications and a choice of affordable plans, all under the same umbrella that could not only compete with the larger e-signature providers, but add the benefit of flexibility, a responsive service, and fast turnaround for integration. If firms could “plug in” our software to work alongside their own, the process could be made very straightforward. With this ethos in mind, our four applications, “SmartLink”, “SmartForms”, “SmartSign” and SmartCheck” were born.
Whilst legal firms make up the larger part of our client base, we have also helped local authorities, accountants, logistics and even funeral service providers to speed up their processes. Legal claims organisations which use call centres to pre-qualify clients use our applications to manage the data that is initially collected, by checking its accuracy and passing on the relevant information to the underwriting team. This minimises human error, saving time and administration costs and enables them to quickly close business. The client’s logo and choice of colour on forms gives the end user a seamless experience. VirtualSignature is also leading the way with advanced techniques which enable law firms to link up when carrying out multi party transactions such as for the sale and purchase of property, keeping the document signing process shared and co-ordinated.
Now that electronic signatures are acceptable in law for the signing of deeds, and because of the current situation with Coronavirus and social distancing, the witnessing of wills has become a hot topic and we are determined to be ahead of the curve with the technology that can help in this arena. Currently two independent witnesses are required to sign a will but this has presented many difficulties in the current circumstances, just when speed is of the essence. We already have a solution in place in line with the Law Society recommendations for changes in the law to be implemented so that digital technology can be used for this purpose.
