Case study: CECA 4 years of paperless signature – a resumee

Four years ago, customers of Spanish banks and savings banks were obliged to repeat their signature on hundreds of different documents. All transactions, however small, used to involve endless document signature. Similarly, all these documents resulted in high direct costs generated by paper, printing and archiving and indirect costs generated by the backoffice business processes associated with each document. This is why the Confederation of Spanish Savings Banks (CECA) had decided to implement a project of Digitalized Signature System (DSS) in Spanish savings banks. When CECA first started this project, they had three very clear objectives in mind: Firstly, to save direct costs associated with documents generated by banking transactions. Secondly, to convert the digitalized signature into standard practice in the banking sector and even in other sectors. And finally, to achieve greater convenience for employees and customers.
