The three main levels of electronic signature

  • The digitized handwritten signature requires validation by email, and records the integrity of the document, as well as the time stamp of the signature. This is the first level of signature, used to electronically sign non-binding documents such as expense claims, internal documents or quotations.
  • The simple eIDAS signature, also known as a legal signature, requires two verifications: sending an email and entering a code received by SMS. Its security level is therefore higher. This electronic signature formally identifies the signatory. For this level of security, it is impossible to modify the data after the signature has been affixed. This level of signature, equivalent to a handwritten face-to-face signature, can be used to sign or have signed any type of document: general terms and conditions, employment contracts, etc.
  • The advanced eIDAS signature requires all the measures of the simple eIDAS and, in addition, validation of the signatory's identity beforehand by sending his or her identity document. Of course, the process is automated, so you don't have to take any manual action yourself. This high level of signature ensures that you have irrefutable legal proof, and that you can sign or have signed highly binding documents such as life insurance policies.

The many advantages of electronic signatures

The legal framework

Note that the NetExplorer electronic signature is eIDAS qualified and has the same legal value as a handwritten face-to-face signature.

An electronic signature is a technical process by which a signatory affixes his agreement (the signature) to a digital document, using an approved tool.


Speed up the signing process

Electronic signatures (online signatures) drastically reduce document processing times.

This optimizes the signing process, while preserving the legal nature of such a document.

The conversion rate increases effortlessly, and your costs are reduced. Of course, your NetExplorer platform allows you to customize your interface, and your external signature requests reflect the image of your organization, offering your customers confidence and peace of mind.
