Many documents require signatures in the telecommunications sector, such as contracts for mobile, fixed line and internet services, as well as pricing
changes. The time required to manually transfer, check, and process these documents in addition to the cost of handling paper is extremely high. Numerous
telecommunications operators, such as Vodafone, Orange and Telefónica have therefore integrated electronic handwritten signatures into their existing
customer systems. The time thus saved by shop operators means that customers are connected quicker and that staff at points of sale have more time to
provide guidance and advice.
