Electronic documents signed in this way can be verified at any time, anywhere and by anyone without technical effort.
On the road to success, the company has already set many strategic milestones with its own resources, innovation and many years of experience.

The software and hardware components are perfectly aligned with each other and guarantee a unique, data-protected interaction, which has already been confirmed by numerous patents. Signing remains as simple and secure as ever with the signature solutions from signotec.
signotec offers various signature pads for different demands and possibilities for application. All pads are characterized by essential unique selling points; for example extra wide, high-quality sensors, an unsurpassed variety of interfaces, terminal server capability and much more. The quality of the digitized signature and the associated usability in court have been confirmed by an independent handwriting expert in an expert’s report.
The extensive range of self-developed software solutions also impresses with its special know-how in the field of biometric signature processing of digital signatures: from signoSign/2, the market-leading solution for handwritten signatures for signing PDF documents, to mobile software solutions and the many different modules and components required to integrate the solution.

"We install every software via a software distribution, often the possibilities of documentation and parameterisation are very limited. But not with signoSign/2 – the handling of the software solution with regard to installation and updates is really exceptional! Hats off and a big praise to the development!"
Stephan Anlauf, Head of EDV/Organisation at Fendt-Caravan GmbH
"Already after the first test of signoSign/2 I have to say: I am thrilled! Everything works exactly as desired. I am especially impressed by the simple configuration of the software; it took me less than two hours to set it up, even though I had no previous knowledge. The configuration of other applications often takes me days or even weeks."
Marcel Baldsiefen, Head of IT at Holz-Richter GmbH
"Tax consulting companies are also working more and more digitally with their clients. Whether in communication, in the transfer of documents or in connection with electronic signatures. Modern, digital solutions are saving the tax chancellery time and money."
Peter Brunmayr, authorized signatory and head of sales and marketing at DATEV Austria
"Especially when it comes to the topic of signing insurance policies with an e-signature, both the agent and the customer experience digitalisation live."
Stefan Heisig, R+V/Condor
"Compared to other providers, at signotec I have a contact person for both hardware and software, who always answers my questions quickly and competently. Almost all deposit and withdrawal receipts as well as many contracts of the deposit business are now signed electronically, so that less paper is used and the signed form is placed directly into our document filing system. By integrating the solution from signotec we not only save paper, we also reduce the risk of losing the signed form in the mail."
Alexander Diebel, Kreissparkasse Schwalm-Eder

José Vicente, Santander Bank
"For many years, filing order documents on paper was a time waster for our colleagues at the project and service centres. With the introduction of signpads, it is now finally possible to file orders and delivery notes digitally. The daily filing effort has been almost completely eliminated, giving colleagues more time for advice and service. This benefits customers directly. In addition, we save several million pages of paper and space for filing every year - a great additional effect."
Ralf Pahl, HORNBACH Baumarkt AG

David Haiml, IT system administrator at SCHIESSL Kältegesellschaft m.b.H.
Dear Support Team,
I would like to thank Mr. Hilker very much for his great support - especially for setting up variable signature fields with CHARLY from Solutio! Mr. Hilker solved a dammed up problem in our practice in 90 minutes and saved us so many filled Leitz folders...
Once again many thanks for the great support - keep it up!
With best regards from Überlingen

Bill Flynn, Affiliated Forensic Laboratory, Inc.

Dr. Walter Schneider, Managing Director at solutio GmbH
