Brussels, March 25, 2022

e-Signature.eu, thanks to the services of doccle, has been offering qualified electronic signatures since 2020 without any commitment. No subscription or fixed costs to bear, just prepaid credits so that each user can order the number of e-Signatures according to their real needs. A commercial offer adapted to the lowest volumes and allowing the electronic identity card (.beID) or itsme® Sign to be used on demand as means of strong signature.

Today e-Signature.eu is enriching its services with new features to even better meet the needs of its user community.

The signature made using a unique code sent by email

This authentication method has the advantage of being very simple to perform and offers a quick solution for the majority of common documents. It is no longer necessary to have a Belgian electronic identity card. An email address is enough to receive a unique code to sign the documents.

“We have many customers who want to have documents signed outside our borders, and the unique code signature is one of the easiest solutions to implement because it is universal,” says Bruno Biemans, head of e-Signature.eu

Legal Notice

It is sometimes necessary for signatories to add a legal notice before signing. The most common is “Read and approved” but this can sometimes concern the amount of a deposit or other more specific cases. The new version provides the possibility of defining its own legal notice. The signatory must enter the same wording defined in order to complete the signing process.

Automatic or manual positioning of signatures on documents

The only real place to verify an electronic signature is in Adobe Reader’s ‘Signatures’ menu. However, it is convenient to also be able to view the signatories of a document on the document itself. In the new version, the initiator will be able to choose from two layout modes:

  • Automatic: If markers* are found on the document to be signed, the signatures will be placed according to the markers, otherwise an additional cover sheet will be added to accommodate the signatures.

* a marker is a series of specific characters inserted into a document and generally invisible (ex: white font color on a white background).

  • Manual: all you have to do is fill in the page and the positioning (in relation to the edges) of the signature for each signatory.

Simultaneity of signatures

Until now it was impossible to sign the same document simultaneously: when a signatory launched a signing session, it temporarily blocked access to other signatory of the same document.
Now this constraint has been lifted and all signatories can sign their documents at any time, independently of other signatories.

Directory

Always for the sake of efficiency, each client now has a directory in which he can save signatories. Thus he will no longer have to re-enter the surname, first name and email address of saved signatories with each new signature request.

Document size

We were limited to 10Mb for all of your documents.
You can now upload documents up to 20Mb (for all your documents).
