SignPad - The LCD Signature Tablet - a joint development of Wacom and Softpro captures static and dynamic (biometric) characteristics of signatures in real time.

Signature Verification and Fraud Detection Detection Solution Specialist Softpro presents its Next Generation Signature Tablet at the RSA Conference in San Francisco. The company is exhibiting together with 13 other specialist in IT security in the German pavilion under the umbrella of "IT security made in Germany". The Signature experts will showcase their innovation in booth 1332 along with their newly released and highly innovative end-to-end electronic account opening application. The first organization worldwide that introduces the next generation signature tablet, named SignPad, in their primary account opening process on a large scale – is the Berliner Sparkasse.

The SignPad tablet allows customers of the Berliner Sparkasse to sign their banking documents and transactions both digitally and securely. The device was specifically developed for the digitizing of handwritten signatures in close co-operation with Wacom and Softpro. BAll 150 private client centers in the branches of the Sparkasse will be equipped with this new interface device. "Paperless signing" will become a reality when customers sign directly onto the display of the SignPad using Softpro’s SignDoc electronic signing software. The Berliner Sparkasse expects to significantly save on the cost of paper handling and archiving.

The SignPad has a cordless, battery-free pen. The signature is captured on a non-reflective 5" TFT LCD. The device offers enough space to cater for longer signatures as well, like when some customers may sign with two surnames. The tablet display is designed to offer the same signing feeling as if writing on paper. In combination with Softpro’s account opening software, customers are able to provide a complete paperless workflow for the storing of signatures and legally binding documents such as credit and loan contracts or account opening forms. Visitors of the BAI Retail Delivery Show may experience this new signing experience for themselves.

The Berliner Sparkasse decided to use SignDoc from Softpro - the leading solution for trustworthy capturing, administration, and verification of handwritten signatures in combination with the SignPad. Joachim Wangnet, responsible for the project at the Berliner Sparkasse, is convinced by the SignPad: ”We have tested several different input devices, but the SignPad is the only signing tablet that finally convinced us that signing digitally can be comfortable, user-friendly, robust, trustworthy, secure and cost-effective - all at the same time. The reason we chose the combination of SOFTPRO software and the SignPad hardware is that we were convinced that it is the only combination that was able to adequately be deployed in a large scale environment.”. The combination of SignPad (hardware) and SignDoc (software) is also officially recommended by the bank’s processing center which is the second largest processing center for savings banks in Germany.
