WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - August 19, 2014) - Silanis Technology, the leading provider of e-Sign Desktop (formerly ApproveIt) and e-SignLive electronic signatures, today announced at the Federal Mobile Computing Summit in Washington, DC that it has launched the first iOS mobile app specific to government users. Called e-Sign for Government, the app enables civilian and military personnel to e-sign and approve forms, task orders, requisitions, contracts and more on a mobile device using a Common Access Card (CAC), Personal Identity Verification (PIV) smart card or derived credentials. For government organizations where privacy and security of data is part of the daily routine, smart card IDs are a common way to manage access to both online and physical resources.
Along with the largest e-signature deployment ever (1.6 million Army personnel), over 500 government organizations, including the entire Joint Chiefs of Staff and the General Services Administration, have standardized on Silanis' electronic signatures to sign documents for nearly a decade. Prior to this announcement, completing the signing process often required being connected to a workstation or to the web. Now, as government workers are increasingly mobile, there is a need to easily and securely complete processes on-the-go using tablets or phones, particularly in environments with limited or no connectivity and bandwidth. The launch of e-Sign for Government enables field or on-site approval and authorization of time-sensitive agreements and transactions, simply and securely without being tethered to a workstation, speeding up the time it takes to complete tasks.
"Government CIOs recognize the transformative nature of new digital technologies that emphasize speed and mobility. This app will enable the government worker to become more productive and efficient with routine tasks like signing and approving documents and forms," said Tommy Petrogiannis, co-founder and CEO at Silanis Technology. "This is the first mobile app to electronically sign documents on-the-go with digital certificates stored on government-issued smart cards."
The e-Sign for Government app will be interoperable with the most widely used e-signature software in government, e-Sign Desktop, later this year -- enabling faster decision making with seamless document sharing and signing between the two software applications.
How e-Sign for Government Works
First-time users will need to download the app from iTunes. Once installed, the user must first create an identity by entering their basic information. From there the user has three choices: use their CAC or PIV card, import a certificate or create a self-signed certificate. Users are then ready to prepare and apply digital signatures on their documents. The e-Sign for Government app is server-independent, works completely offline and allows for sharing by email or through the iOS "open in…" functionality.
Those looking to find out more about e-Sign for Government can visit Silanis at the Federal Mobile Computing Summit or download the app soon from the iTunes Store.
