Signature Capture for iPad and Android -
Sign on the Dotted Screen

By incorporating digital signature capturing into the age-old process of signing documents, companies can save front- and back-office costs in labor, printing, scanning, faxing, mailing of paper originals, and long-term storage. You can now e-mail the document for immediate receipt by the client, partner, coworker, or employee. They can instantly sign it electronically with a tablet or smartphone no matter where they are, just as they are used to doing with their handwritten signature. Field agents can also get documents signed in person, in real time, by presenting a document to a client on a tablet.


The apps are integrated with and built on xyzmo's SIGNificant platform, thus ensuring the e-signature process is driven on a mobile device using the same flexible e-signature platform as in a browser. This simplifies development and gives agents, branches, service personnel, and other users the same functionality through mobile devices as on the Web.


Pure cloud-based solutions can put you in trouble. Often a client will be ready to sign and either the system will be down or there are Internet issues. This requires you to either go back to get the paperwork done or email it to the client later, and can result in not getting a contract signed at all. This is not the case with SIGNificant. Once a document is available in the App you NO longer need an Internet connection and can use all the functionality offline. You can even load multiple documents into the App. They are stored on the device and you can switch between documents offline and finish them on-the-go. When you are done with capturing signatures you will need an Internet connection again to return the document or send it to any app that supports PDFs, such as Dropbox, Evernote, Box(.net), etc.

Natural signing experience like pen on paper Natural signing experience like pen on paper

While signing on the screen the signature is displayed without delay and accurately like signing with a pen on paper. The app fully supports Android-powered tablets which are equipped with an active stylus pen. (e.g. Samsung S-Pen Devices, Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet, HTC Jetstream and HTC Flyer).
[Note: We highly recommend to sign with a stylus or even better an active stylus (pen) (instead of signing with your finger) to provide the best natural signing experience.]

Forensically identifiable signatures Forensically identifiable signatures

SIGNificant records the signature of a person using all available parameters, such as acceleration, speed, and rhythm. If there is a dispute about a captured signature, an expert tool is available to forensically analyze the biometric characteristics of the captured signature.

Browse Through Multipage Documents Browse Through Multipage Documents

Browse and review multipage documents before you sign them. Especially useful for field agents to get documents signed in person, in real time, by presenting a document to a client on a tablet.

Typewriter Typewriter

Lets you enter text anywhere on a PDF. It is useful for typing on a non-fillable form or outside the fillable areas of a form.

Fill out and sign PDF forms Fill out and sign PDF forms

Complete your PDF forms on the go and allow automated forms data extraction of signed documents.

Add attachments Add attachments

Add scans of driving license, passport or any other photo out of your photo gallery. If your tablet has a camera you are able to attach any current photo.

Document Binding Document Binding

When a signature, including all these biometric parameters, is captured locally on the device, it is safely embedded using an asynchronous public key encryption into and uniquely bound to the target PDF document. Copy/paste attacks can thus be easily detected.

Content Protection Content Protection

Protect the integrity of PDF documents by sealing them with a digital signature.

Full PDF and PDF/A Conformance Adobe Acrobat compatible PDF

The document is Adobe Acrobat compatible, so it can be viewed by any standard PDF viewer. PDF documents are sealed with a digital signature compliant to the ISO-Standards for PDF. Thus the validity of the digital signature can be validated with Adobe Reader and many other PDF viewers.

Offline capabilities Offline capabilities

An internet connection is only required to prepare a document for e-signing with SIGNificant, because the documents are prepared online on the platform. Once a document is available in the App the user NO longer needs an internet connection and can use all the functionality offline. He can even load multiple documents into the App. They are stored on the device and the user can switch between documents offline and finish them on-the-go. When the user is done with capturing signatures he will need an internet connection again to return the document or send it to any app that supports PDFs, such as Dropbox, Evernote, Box(.net), etc.

Email support Email support

After e-signing, you email your document right back from the App.

Support for cloud storage Support for cloud storage

SIGNificant utilizes the “Open” functionality to allow you to open a document from most other applications that have documents and contracts in them — including your inbox, Dropbox, Evernote, Box(.net) and others — and sign them via SIGNificant on the go. When you are finished you can store and share documents via your cloud storage.


Additional Features in the SIGNificant Signature Capture Enterprise Version


Content Protection On-premises or Cloud-based

Available as an on-premises installation or provided as a cloud-based solution.

Control all steps in the signing process Control all steps in the signing process

This includes the ability to position signature fields and define their order. Additionally, specify compulsory and optional signature fields, enable or forbid annotations, define the order in which forms have to be filled out, enforce the scanning of attachments via the built-in camera, and much more.

Implementing Policies Implementing Policies

It’s possible to disable certain functionalities for a particular document, such as deleting a predefined signature field, or to enforce policies, such as the need to sign signature fields in a certain order, or to add an attachment with the camera and so on.

Watermarking Watermarking

Add watermarks like "Confidential" or "Draft" to your documents.

Signature verification Signature verification

The SIGNificant Signature Verification enables a real-time biometric verification of a signature to the SIGNificant platform by comparison of the recorded parameters of the handwritten signatures against the preenrolled profile. The possibility of a detailed protocol for each signature-relevant action makes it a total solution; documents are only processed if their signers are authenticated and companies can prove who signed which document and when.

Flatten PDF Flatten PDF

With that option you remove any layers (annotations, digital signatures ...) that aren’t visible by some PDF viewers (e.g. on the iPad or iPhone) and consolidate it into one layer, which is support by all PDF viewers. Further it locks content in form fields and comments so you can be assured that information may no longer be changed.

No need to transfer a PDF document No need to transfer a PDF document

The user receives a link to access the PDF on the server, and only image previews are transferred to the app. Thus, the signed original document is for security reasons only available on the server and not automatically copied and thus duplicated to the mobile device. All manipulations off the PDF are always performed in the save data center environment.

Use alongside similarly-featured signature pads and tablet PCs Use alongside similarly-featured signature pads and tablet PCs

Enterprises can use signature pads in their branches or shops, for example, and iPads or Android tablets for their sales force. Or alternatively capture customer signatures within their premises with signature pads, but at the same time allow customers who have an iPad or Android device to sign the same contracts on the go, on their own device. No matter how the solutions are combined, there are no obstacles, and the final result is always the same: a signed and sealed PDF.

Extensive integration possibilities Extensive integration possibilities

with ERP, CRM, DMS, workflow management, and alike via web services.

Customization Customization

Enterprises can utilize the xyzmo infrastructure and launch their own e-signature application, as well as integrate the functionality of SIGNificant into their own apps (SDK available).
