Success Story Maschinenring Salzburg

Maschinenring Salzburg is digitizing its signature workflows with sproof sign to make the internal processes even more efficient. Rather than printing documents for signing and requiring to distribute and collect the documents across multiple divisions and office locations, this can now be done fully digitally.

The original idea of Maschinenring was for farmers to support each other and to jointly achieve price advantages and reduce costs by sharing expensive machinery. This vision is still valid today. However, in addition, Maschinenring opens up a wide range of additional business opportunities. Through services and personnel leasing, farmers and people with an agricultural background are employed, for example, in winter service but also in summer service, and thus Maschinenring offers numerous employment opportunities.

Maschinenring Salzburg has chosen sproof for accompanying its digitalization process for two main reasons: sproof is an Austrian-based company that is 100% GDPR-compliant, and sproof provides qualified electronic signatures for legally-binding and valid digital signing according to the European legal framework. Qualified signatures offer  the highest level of trust and are equivalent to handwritten signatures. With sproof, the management board of Maschinenring Salzburg has been equipped with their own legally-binding electronic signature. However, the application of sproof sign is not limited to the  board, but also all the other employees can digitize their processes. sproof sign is a cloud-based solution, easy to use, and does  not require a large-scale IT project to start.

At Maschinenring Salzburg, we decided to use sproof to optimize our business processes and make them more efficient. All documents that require a qualified signature are signed in seconds via Sproof and digitally signed in their entirety. The batch signature of documents is a central feature for us that not only saves paper, but above all time.
