The capital management company Helaba Invest is digitizing its business processes with Sign Live! cloud suite gears by intarsys
(Karlsruhe / Frankfurt, May 26.05.2020, XNUMX) As part of its digitization strategy, Helaba Invest aims to completely digitize all paper-based business processes as far as possible. Signatures and approvals, which are indispensable due to regulatory and compliance requirements, pose a particular challenge here. In addition to pure fund management, Helaba Invest has numerous signature requirements, particularly due to its function as a master capital management company. Helaba Invest therefore relies on intarsys to digitize the signature and approval processes AG and their Sign Live! cloud suite gears.
“We can use Sign Live! both provide central investment guidelines and fund reports with a qualified electronic seal and also give more than one hundred employees the opportunity for a qualified electronic signature in the browser without additional hardware and software installations at the workplace. Multiple signatures under contracts or the signing of BaFin reports are also completely electronic and legally secure," says Dr. Christian Popp, (former) Member of the Management Board of Helaba Invest. "The decision to set up electronic signatures is currently proving its worth, because numerous employees are currently working from home due to the Corona crisis."
High security and easy integration
At Helaba Invest, Sign Live! cloud suite gears both smart cards on the server with qualified electronic seal certificates and the web-based remote signature with advanced and qualified personal certificates, issued by the trust service of Swisscom Trust Services.
“It was also essential for us that with the remote signature solution, the documents to be signed do not leave our company. This is guaranteed by the intarsys solution, ”explains Dr. Pop further out. “Another advantage is that it can be easily integrated into our existing one IT-Infrastructure. Sign Live! has powerful APIs that can be easily integrated into our document management. "
For the future, Helaba Invest plans to include external business partners in the exchange of electronically signed documents. This is also very easy to do with intarsys remote signature technology.
