What factors make digital signatures legally-binding?by Mahender Bist CEO
Electronic signatures have been in use for more than a decade in the EU, US, Canada, and many other countries. Nonetheless, the acceptance rate only started to gain momentum over the past few years. Originally, the hindrances to e-signs adoption included the concerns over their legality, the typical reluctance to embrace new technologies, and the huge up-front costs of the first solutions.
In America, for example, it is not sufficient for a transaction just to be legal; the majority of organizations would like to be certain, the said transaction can hold up in a court of law.
Many years have passed since various e-signature laws became active. And as expected, electronic signatures solutions are now powerful, elegant, affordable, reliable, and their overall return on investment is unquestionable.
That’s said; there are a clear set of guidelines as to what really makes them compliant; and more so, legally valid.
