Use Cases


eSignatureOnce a signature software application has been customized and integrated into the bank’s internal system software or the bank software itself has been modified to capture electronic signatures directly by using Wacom’s signature SDK, the user experience is quite simple.  Information is presented to the customer on the computer screen that describes the purpose of the document, reason for signing, and any relevant personal information.  When it is time to capture the electronic signature, a signature box is displayed on the Wacom signature tablet or interactive pen display and the customer signs their name on the screen using Wacom’s electronic pen, as if they would on paper.  Using the pen to click an OK or cancel button on the screen determines the next step in the signature process.  It’s that simple.  The electronic signature data is captured by the software including timestamp data, reason for signing, as well as all of the embedded biometric signature data including velocity, angle, change of direction and pressure sensitivity, all of which, when analyzed at a later date are capable of positively identifying an authentic signature apart from a forgery.


eSignatureBanks such as the Berlin Sparkasse or Spanish Savings Banks (CECA) successfully use electronic handwritten signatures for many of their processes.
