Application of the biometric signature
Like other electronic signatures, biometric signatures make it possible to sign documents without the need for paper. Any type of business or personal transaction can be done with this technology.
Through digitizing tablets (or other devices prepared for the biometric signature) the parties can conclude agreements, complete contracts, and all this with a high level of reliability similar to the handwritten signature on paper, with the same legal validity. This is because the document is saved not only with the signature of the signatory, but also with the biometric data of the same, which will be attached to the document. The entire set of evidence will be encrypted and properly stored to ensure its authenticity and security.
The biometric signature is a technology that allows capturing the image of the handwritten signature through digital tablets with the biometric data of the signatory – speed, writing acceleration, pressure, inflections, changes of direction and pencil movements. These characteristics identify the signatory in a unique way as these are features that are inherent to the person and allow each individual to authenticate uniquely.
Benefits of biometric signature
By being able to do most of the processes without paper, companies will have significant savings in costs, greater security and transparency.
In addition, biometric signature technology has the following advantages:
- Fraud prevention: which is possible following the identification of the signatory at the time of signature.
- Signature guarantee: the signature process does not allow the completion of a signature process until all requested signatures have been captured.
- Document and signature audit: the technology facilitates the verification of the authenticity of the documents and their respective signatures.
- Improved processes: digital processes improve all types of personal or professional management, increasing their efficiency and transparency.
