Electronic Signature

The electronic signature has taken a leading role in simplifying and streamlining processes that previously required physical and tedious procedures.

What is the Electronic Signature

The electronic signature is the set of electronic data that accompanies or is associated with an electronic document and whose basic functions are to identify the signer unequivocally, ensure the integrity of the signed document and that the person signing the document has actually performed such action.


Electronic signatures offer a number of significant advantages over traditional paper-based signature methods. Some of these advantages include:

  1. Saves time and resources: Electronic signatures eliminate the need to print, hand sign and scan physical documents.

  2. Improved customer experience: Electronic signatures allow people to sign documents from anywhere, anytime. This eliminates the need to be physically present to sign documents.

  3. Streamlined processes: Workflows involving electronic signatures are more efficient and faster. Documents can be circulated and signed by multiple parties in a matter of minutes, speeding up approval and collaboration processes.

  4. Enhanced security: Electronic signatures use advanced cryptographic techniques to ensure the authenticity and integrity of documents. This makes it difficult to forge or alter an electronic signature without detection.

  5. Reduced paper use: By eliminating the need to print documents to sign them, electronic signatures contribute to the reduction of paper consumption and the environmental impact associated with paper production and disposal.

  6. Increased traceability: Electronic signatures are often accompanied by records that track who signed the document, when they signed it and in what context. This provides greater traceability and transparency in processes.

  7. Legal validity: Electronic signatures have full legal validity. At the European level it is regulated in the eIDAS Regulation, although the level of validity will depend on the type of signature used.

  8. Globalization of transactions: Electronic signatures facilitate transactions and agreements at an international level by eliminating geographical barriers and allowing the parties involved to sign documents from anywhere in the world.
