SignFlow geolocation bolsters non-repudiation

 

Just when you thought SignFlow’s watertight non-repudiation could not possibly get stronger, the team has introduced geolocation to its world-class digital signing solution.

This comes as SignFlow Version 3.0 was released in August, a move that saw significantly improved workflow functionality, comprising electronic initialling and multi-document portfolios.

The addition of geolocation adds to the already sound robustness of the solution, as the geographical location (geolocation) of the signer is recorded and added to the audit log – one of the key benefits of using a digital signing solution.

When the signer makes their digital mark on the document or documents in a workflow, their physical coordinates are immediately recorded and will display in the audit trail after the document is initialled or signed.

Locating the physical address of the signer is simple and straight-forward – simply click on the Maps Pin (inverted drop-shaped icon) to view the location on Google Maps with your browser.

This is how it works: from the audit trail in SignFlow, you will see a line tagged “Location”. Next to the location will be a Maps Pin icon. Click on the Pin and your browser will automatically open the location in a new window using Google Maps.

Google recognises this detail as coordinates and opens an overview map. All you need to do then, is click on the Google Map to zoom in on the exact physical location the signer was when they signed the document.

With this information in hand, the level of non-repudiation associated with the document in question is supreme.

When used in conjunction with another one of SignFlow’s recent breakthroughs – Face-to-face Signing – there is irrefutable proof that both the signee and the witness were at the same location, at the same time, when the document was signed.

SignFlow’s new geolocation is just one of the many new features developing from the team’s consistent and continual efforts to bring you the world’s leading digital signing solution.
