Fuji Xerox New Zealand drives digital further with Secured Signing partnership
23 March, 2017, Auckland, New Zealand - As it continues to build out a complete digital platform for document management, Fuji Xerox New Zealand has announced a new partnership with Secured Signing which enables digital signatures to be easily and securely added to any document or form. The partnership is part of the strategy Fuji Xerox put in place recently to bring enhanced cloud offerings to the New Zealand market.
Cameron Mount, Fuji Xerox New Zealand GM Enterprise Consulting, says the partnership addresses a common stalling point for companies which are digitally transforming their business processes.
“Where digital processes tend to break down is when people must print documents to sign or annotate, then scan and send to a second or third party. Introducing a digitally signed option closes the loop and allows documents to move electronically all the way from document creation to archive.”
Secured Signing is a New Zealand company founded in 2010. It provides a comprehensive and compliant Software as a Service platform that uses secure, personalised, X509 PKI Digital Signature technology and enables the customisation of a full range of eForm and eSignature capabilities.
Mount adds that the locally-hosted Secured Signing solution offers advantages over other systems as it charges per document, rather than per signature, making it an attractive value proposition for clients particularly in the healthcare, HR onboarding, financial services, Insurance, and other ‘document-heavy’ industries.
“Broadly speaking, any business which is signing a few hundred documents or more per month should be looking at digital options to accelerate workflow, eliminate errors and free data from paper so it can easily enter a digital workflow,” he says.
With tamper-proof digital documents, there is no need for people to print and carry papers. It is possible to transact quickly, particularly with Secured Signing’s ability to facilitate the addition of multiple digital signatures in sequence, allowing collaborative efforts over multiple locations.
Adding electronic signatures, Mount says, is a game-changer for digital process acceleration.
“While digital signing improves the convenience and speed of the act of signing documents, including the ability to do so with mobile devices, the real benefit is the follow-on effect with what happens with documents when they move downstream. With an ‘all electronic’ workflow, information can directly enter backend systems like CRM or DocuShare. That provides the ability for accelerated analysis and use of collated data,” says Mike Eyal, Managing Director, Secured Signing.
The multiple-branched global leader in the recruitment workforce market Manpower Group uses Secured Signing to create a faster and more efficient candidate registration experience. During interviews, Secured Signing has assisted Manpower to shorten by 60 percent the time spent on the filling-in and signing of compulsory paperwork, thus guaranteeing a prompt and compliant hiring process.
"Secured Signing gives candidates the flexibility to complete the online registration pack and sign from anywhere, at any time,” says Michael Cuzic, Director and CFO at Manpower Group. “This, in turn, provides our consultants with advanced accurate information that leaves more time for in-depth interviews and assessments, and for Manpower, creates a competitive advantage within the industry."
The addition of digital signatures to its portfolio of document management and workflow platform is a key component in Fuji Xerox New Zealand’s ability to provide end to end solutions for digitally transformed organisations, continues Mount.
“Our aim is to drive efficiency and better business with a digital platform which makes document processes easy, compliant and secure,” he concludes
