VirtualSignature and Document Direct have announced a business partnership to promote
the use of eSignatures and digital onboarding for clients. The partnership will also see
Document Direct use the SmartSign eSignature application when digitally onboarding its
own clients.
Martyn Best, Managing Director and founder of Document Direct commented, “We were
wrestling with the challenge of sending documents for signature digitally and had not found
a solution that met our specific needs. Of course we knew about other platforms, but their
cost and inflexibility did not meet our needs. Then we met VirtualSignature.
VirtualSignature set up and provided us access to a trial system within hours. Our support
team assessed its capabilities and were very impressed. We really liked the look of
SmartSign and the platform and how flexible it was. Based on the very positive feedback, we
then made the decision to not only use SmartSign for our own use but to also promote it by
entering into partnership with VirtualSignature.”
Martyn, who is also the joint owner of PROGRESS Wrestling added, “We jokingly discussed
using the solution for one of our other businesses, PROGRESS Wrestling, and then thought,
why not? Having our wrestlers sign contracts for events is critical. We decided to provide
them the contracts digitally to sign and we’ve found that they have all accepted and
adopted use of the technology, in most cases signing on a mobile phone remotely at a time
that suits them. The feedback has been excellent as it’s made their lives so much easier.”
David Kern, CEO, VirtualSignature said, “We are delighted to have Document Direct as one
of our growing number of partners to promote our UK developed and supported Smart
Onboarding platform. The attraction of working with Martyn and the team is about aligning
with a like-minded business that values delivering a high level service to clients and
collaborating with them to meet customer needs.”
The Smart Onboarding platform offers advanced functionality and capability that is far
superior to other available solutions in the market. It enables firms to have a single
integrated platform for remote app based document signing, witnessing, Advanced and
Qualified ID Verification and other checks that need to be undertaken, such as AML and
Source of Funds, all from one UK supplier and at a more affordable price. It comes already
integrated with leading systems such as iManage, Visualfiles, Proclaim, Tikit P4W, MS
Dynamics, Actionstep and many more.
