Silanis, a provider of enterprise electronic signature solutions with more than 600 million documents processed annually, today announced the release of version 5.0 of its award-winning e-signature solution e-Sign Enterprise™. Release 5.0 delivers ease of use and fast and efficient integration, top requirements in an enterprise e-signature solution for organizations of all sizes. Processing greater than 100,000 consumer and business transactions daily, including the highest volume implementations, e-Sign Enterprise is the solution used by JP Morgan Chase, RBC Royal Bank, US Bank, 21st Century and the US General Services Administration and the entire US Army.
Silanis’ new release builds on its existing platform – considered the standard for enforceable and regulated customer transactions – by giving users extensible API capabilities, configurable e-signing processes and a new portable electronic evidence format. “Anyone who has recently applied for insurance online or electronically signed a document at their bank has likely used e-Sign Enterprise,” says Silanis CEO and co-founder Tommy Petrogiannis. “Our product’s ability to seamlessly integrate has made our software the choice among organizations of all sizes looking for more than a general purpose e-signature tool.”
e-Sign Enterprise 5.0 delivers:
- Configurable User Experience: Standard workflows can be configured to quickly and easily deploy e-signature transactions for online, call-center, dealer, agent and branch use cases. Silanis Mobile e-Sign and Transaction Manager will also leverage these standard workflows. Regardless of the number of documents, signers, sessions, rules and exceptions, users are easily guided through the electronic transaction, leading to a better experience and higher adoption. Once configured, the workflows will dynamically handle changing conditions, events and exceptions, and prevent the need for additional programming around countless workflow variations. The user interface can also be customized to match the branding of the host application.
- Faster and Easier Integration: With a new extensible API, developers can create custom processes through Groovy scripts, leading to faster integration and better performance of electronic transactions. This flexibility makes it possible to build dynamic e-sign workflows as well as rapidly expand electronic signatures across an organization to new processes, lines of business and channels, including financial instruments stored using the Silanis e-Vault Manager.
- Portable Electronic Evidence: With the newly added ability to export process evidence to a single standards-based html file, organizations can use their records management system for more convenient access to evidence while easily adhering to corporate records management and data retention policies without compromising security or enforceability. Process evidence ensures the enforceability and non-repudiation of electronically signed documents.
By delivering all these enhancements both on-premises and as an on-demand signing service, organizations can maintain a high degree of control, scalability and customizability necessary in an enterprise solution without compromising functionality. “With consumers demanding organizations respond with better customer service through e-commerce and e-business channels, organizations in regulated industries have a trusted e-signature platform they can integrate seamlessly and quickly,” said Petrogiannis.
The enhancements in 5.0 are particularly relevant to Silanis’ partner base, including IBM, Ebix, Aplifi, Avidian and HP Exstream. Having provided input to prioritize these enhancements, Silanis’ partners will benefit from the ease of integration this release brings, extending their solution with e-signatures to help their customers close business faster. The release of 5.0 comes on the heels of Silanis’ recent win for Best Industry Solution for Banking from IBM (2011 recipient for Insurance) and Gold in analyst firm Novarica’s Average Customer Experience (ACE) Rankings.
