signotec signoSign/2 - Signature Software
Signature Software signotec signoSign²
Do not print any more paper "only" for the signature! Reduce costs, speed up processing and throughput times and reliably prevent misuse.
With "signoSign/2" you can create PDF documents, sign them by hand and process them automatically. You can use signotec signature pads, a Windows tablet PC or an Apple iPhone or iPad as input device for handwritten signatures.
This allows you to digitize your processes flexibly and easily. At the same time, you can generate legally compliant and conclusive electronic signatures (according to the ISO standard) directly within your digital document. This means that anyone can check the integrity of the content at any time without any technical effort.
Please note that signoSign/2 is not free of charge, except for a 30-day trial period. After that, the software is generally subjected to be licensed.
Efficiency and Saftey are a Top Priority
signoSign/2 offers an unsurpassed and constantly growing variety of functions to process and sign your documents digitally and automatically. This makes it possible to process each type of document ("document type") in an individual way, position signatures dynamically, save them automatically and send them by e-mail.

In addition, the software offers dozens of additional functions for editing the document as well as automated indexing and further processing.
The signoSign/2 settings are divided into "Configuration" and "Document types". In the general configuration, you can define settings for the software, such as language, printer, signature devices, certificates, etc. In addition, you can customize the user interface according to your needs and, for example, hide unneeded functions. The document types contain all relevant configurations and rules on how the software processes your documents.
The software signoSign/2 can be extended with some plug-ins and additional tools in order to adapt flexibly to your business processes. The individual extensions and further information can be found in the following sections.

signoSign/2 offers many options for capturing a signature, which can be used flexibly and even combined. The signotec signature pads were developed with years of experience and the highest demands on security, ergonomics and longevity. Of course, all signotec devices can also be used with the signoSign/2 software. The different signature pads offer different functions and possibilities. In addition to the signature pads, there are also other options for capturing signatures and signing documents.
The signature pad "signotec Sigma" is the smallest device of the signotec family. With a 4" large, monochrome LCD it is very compact and especially designed for mobile use. Individual texts and metadata can be shown on the display during the signature process.
signotec Gamma & Omega
The signature pads "signotec Gamma" and "signotec Omega" offer a 5" large color LCD and a modern design. In addition to a self-configurable slideshow that can be displayed in standby mode, you can also display document excerpts and meta information during the signature process on the device.
The signature pad "signotec Delta" has a 10.1" colour LCD and can therefore display A4 documents in their original width. The document can be scrolled very comfortably with the pen on the device. The interactive mode of signoSign/2 enables not only signature capture but also the insertion of handwritten notes.
Other Capture Devices
Windows Tablet PCs and Convertibles
On a Windows Tablet PC or Convertible with pen input, you can sign the document directly from the device's sensor, eliminating the need for an external signature pad. A Tablet-PC license is required to use the software.
If you want to capture a smartphone or tablet for signature, you can use the "Mobile Capture Plug-In". With this extension you can capture a signature from your Apple iOS or Android device.
If you have a signature card, you can also use the "Smartcard Signing Plug-In" in signoSign/2 to sign it.
As a "Made in Germany" provider of solutions in the field of handwritten electronic signatures, security is very important to us. With our established products, you can expect not only an economically and ecologically sensible solution that promises you high cost savings, but also a legally compliant signature that you can use as meaningful evidence in court.
Note: With signoSign/2 you create an "advanced electronic signature" according to the Signature Act or eIDAS regulation.
In principle, the connection between the computer and the signature pad is encrypted at all times. The signotec procedure is unique and incomparable, since various procedures such as RSA and AES are used for encryption and key exchange. It is therefore not possible to intercept or manipulate the USB connection. So you can be sure that the highly sensitive data of the biometric signature is protected at all times.
During the signature process, extensive biometric data of the signer is recorded, such as pressure strength, time history, angle, writing speed, adding/removing points, etc. This data is encrypted and stored in the document using a unique RSA method. In case of dispute, this data can be used for a very accurate and meaningful signature comparison in court - equivalent to the original signature on paper.
The "Secure Mode" developed in-house prevents usable data from being transmitted to the monitor for real-time display.
The captured signature is not only stored as an image in the document, but also as an electronic signature. The document content (HASH) and the signature are unchangeably linked and protected against changes. Subsequent manipulations are reliably detected and existing signatures are marked as invalid. A verification of the document does not require any signotec software, but can also be carried out e.g. in Adobe Reader. Document integrity is guaranteed at all times.
Did you know?
With our unique and patented security procedures, you can sign your document directly in the pad so that manipulation by third parties (within the potentially insecure Windows environment) can be ruled out.

Please note that signoSign/2 is not free of charge. Software for the electronic and legally compliant signature of PDF documents is generally subject to licensing. However, you can test the software free of charge and without obligation before purchasing it. You can obtain the latest version via the download form. After the 30-day trial period has expired, you must license the software. We will be happy to make you an individual offer.
The software signoSign/2 can also be programmatically integrated into existing processes. The software integrator has various ways of doing this. The return of the signed file is also possible in different ways.
- PDF file via command line
A PDF file can easily be started with signoSign/2 via command line call. The file is then processed according to the settings of the respective document type.
- SML file via command line
In addition to PDF files, the software also supports so-called "SML" files. An SML file contains an XML structure that refers to a PDF file that is opened. In addition, information is passed which loads a certain document type and passes fixed (external) variables for use. Like a PDF file, an SML file can be transferred via command line.
- Soon: Call via URL
In addition to the classic command line call, signoSign/2 can also be called via the URL schema "signoSign2:". The start can also be triggered from a web application. The file to be opened can be transmitted as web or file URL parameter.
- Soon: ZIP archive via command line or URL
To open multiple files at the same time and optionally specify document type settings, signoSign/2 can also be provided with a ZIP archive. The archive can contain any number of PDF files and XML files of the same name. The call is possible via command line or URL.
In addition to storage in the file system, the following options are also available for archiving:
- Call of an application and optional transfer of the (signed) archive file
- Multipart upload to a URL that can be defined for each document type
- Archive Plug-In Interface for the development of a completely own archive (see tab "Extensions")
Integration of signoSign2
The integration of signoSign/2 into existing processes is very easy: Simply print from your application on the (installed) signotec PDF-Creator. A PDF is created and automatically displayed in signoSign/2 for signing. Alternatively, you can also open existing PDF documents directly in the software or transfer them to the application via additional interfaces.
Within the software, you can define a set of rules for all your "document types". signoSign/2 then recognizes your document and, for example, automatically and dynamically creates the positions of the signature fields. You can also easily configure the storage location, e-mail dispatch, index criteria and much more.
So your processes can not only be digitalized, but also automated!
