All banks save a master copy of the signatures of their customers in order to permit authentication later on. If a customer signs digitally on a Wacom
signature pad, this authentication can be securely carried out electronically at any time by the bank employee.
Leading investment and savings banks as well as credit unions already make successful use of digitizing handwritten signatures for many of their processes.
Today, nearly all forms can be signed electronically including applications for account openings or new cards, signing loan contracts and transactions. The
time saved by automating business processes means that sales staff can spend more time with customers rather than handling paperwork.
