Home office: Why you should sign documents digitally from now on

07.02.2021, Niki

Numerous documents are sent to people in the home office for approval by signature. Read here why scanning a signed document is a bad idea and what you can do instead.

In Scandinavian countries, home office is common for many years now. In central Europe, we have only recently been confronted with it. With more and more employees from all areas of responsibility working from home, signing documents remotely is becoming increasingly important.

Why analogue procedures are risky

While companies have digitized many of their processes already, signing documents often still happens in analogue form. In times of home office, that means that these documents are often printed out for signing and photographed or scanned after signing, or the signature is inserted using image editing software. This process is not only time-consuming, the signatures created in this way are also easy to forge or are not even legally valid in the first place.

Digital signature tool: time-saving and legally correct in the home office

The digital signature tool sproof sign makes it possible that company-internal important documents no longer have to be printed out for a signature at home and then maybe even lie around there and are not destroyed fairly. With sproof sign, the signature process from home is simple, legally valid, completely digital and does not require a printout on the computer. This does not only save printer paper, toner, time and reduces CO2 emissions, but also eliminates the need for destruction of documents that otherwise accumulate in home offices.
