Digital signing of documents
The RISE Group provides customers with the option of having documents digitally signed. Read more about how our solution works and of how to verify our documents.
For some time now, we have given our customers the option of having their documents digitally signed, rather than manual signatures on printed paper. The benefits for our customers are many.
- You can verify the identity of the signer.
- You can ensure that the content of the document is unchanged.
- Faster and better accessibility to your documents.
- Better legibility, as we do not have to scan our reports after they are manually signed. This is especially evident when the document contains images, tables and diagrams.
- The file size will be significantly smaller than when scanning.
What is required to verify the content and signature of the document?
Our digitally signed documents are in PDF format and we recommend that you use Adobe Acrobat Reader version 6.0 or later.
How can I see that the document is unchanged and verified?
One advantage of a digitally signed document is that you can always see if the document has been changed after signing. To see this, no installations are required. You verify this in Adobe Acrobat Reader.
Open the PDF document. Right-click the signature field in the PDF document and select "Validate signature". If you see the green tick, the document is unchanged after signing and the signature is valid. You can try out the solution with our digitally signed test document, which you will find further up on this page.
