"We selected Wolters Kluwer E-Sign because it gives us the flexibility to meet our members’ current and future needs,” said Karen Savickas Mathias, operations manager at Southwest Research Center Federal Credit Union. "As a small credit union, to stay competitive against bigger banks, we strive to provide a personalized experience to all of our members – inside or outside of our brick and mortar locations. Wolters Kluwer E-Sign will help us provide a turnkey solution, with secure email and e-signature, to our members.”
"Our research has found 62% of retail banking executives are considering investments in digital signature software,” said Nicole Sturgill, principal executive advisor with CEB TowerGroup. “The technology, the third newest in banks today, gives financial institutions a solid foundation for delivering remote banking services. The biggest challenge to deployment for banks is ensuring the proper compliance protocols are in place. Without them, complying with regulatory requirements becomes a significant hurdle to a successful deployment.”
