Electronic signature in EVO Savings: more options, more accessible!

Sep 21, 2020 10:47:08 AM / by iA

Electronic signature in EVO Savings is now better than ever thanks to two significant improvements that we are proudly launching today, which are aimed at providing greater flexibility for your clients and a better user experience!

An improved experience

Available in the EVO Savings New-issue and Contribution tools, more flexibility means even more of your clients will be eligible for electronic signature!

Two options are now available to your clients to access the documents to be signed:

  • Security question (NEW)
  • Code received via text message

A cell phone number is therefore no longer mandatory in order to sign electronically.

You can also now offer your client a choice of electronic signature method:

  • On-screen handwritten signature (NEW)
  • Click-to-sign

The more traditional method of on-screen handwritten signature can foster greater client engagement and may be carried out using a mouse or a touchscreen device (e.g. iPad).

Both electronic signature methods hold the same legal value as a handwritten wet signature.

One signature is all it takes!

Whichever electronic signature method your client chooses, they are now only required to sign once on the newly-added Savings Application page, included in their e-documents. Your client’s signature is therefore found on this page only, and validates the content of all other documents included in the new issue, including the investor profile.

Reference tools

Details the steps involved whether your client is signing remotely or in person.
