AES for Business: Organisation-wide implementation within just a few days
Enable your entire staff to sign with the advanced electronic signature.
Company e-mail address as identification element
With AES for Business, your company domain (e.g. yourcompany.com)
enables signing. Anyone who registers with Skribble using an e-mail address
from your organisation (e.g. email@example.com) and is a member
of your Business account can sign with AES without any further action.
You can register for AES for Business directly in your Skribble Business account. We will need the following information from you:
- Domain which should enable signing with AES (e.g. yourcompany.com)
- Trade register number of your organisation
- Name and e-mail address of an internal contact person
If we can verify the information, AES for Business will be activated and ready for use within 5 to 6 working days.
AES: Widely applicable signature standard
Simple electronic signature
Advanced electronic signature
Qualified electronic signature
The law distinguishes between qualified electronic signatures (QES) and advanced electronic signatures (AES). The two standards vary in terms of area of application and legal weight. The advanced electronic signature (AES) is legally valid for contracts where the law does not prescribe a specific form. This applies to most types of contracts, such as rental, purchase or mortgage agreements.
Self-explanatory for employees
Skribble’s signing platform is designed so that new employees can get started without the need for explanation. Signing can be done via a browser from any device online at Skribble.com. Alternatively, you can connect Skribble to your existing systems (via API). This allows employees to sign directly from your usual software.
