Award-winning RPost releases comprehensive electronic signature service upgrade with court-admissible document, contract, and multi-party signoff tools that plug into Salesforce.com, Outlook, Lotus, web-mail and other applications
LOS ANGELES, CA — Aug 16, 2011 — RPost, the inventor of Registered Email® services, today released a comprehensive electronic signature service upgrade that builds upon RPost’s secure messaging platform, which has been awarded the legal industry’s top pick in the JMBM Corporate Counsel Guide for Converting Legal and Contract Notices to Electronic Delivery, as well as been the recipient of the World Mail Award for Best in Security. With e-signature customers from Cox Communications use for sales contract signoff to insurance carrier claims correspondence signatures, RPost has set the global standard for e-signatures and Legal Proof® in other electronic communications for nearly a decade.
This latest RPost electronic signature upgrade delivers all the elements necessary for upholding legal contracts in today’s automated technology environments with three crucial, specific elements:
“Electronically signing a document is not difficult,” says Zafar Khan, CEO of RPost. “Just typing your name at the bottom of a document or email can have all the legal force of a handwritten signature if all parties have proof that you are the author of the specific content. But if you don’t have that proof, then electronic signing is legally worthless. The key element in any system of electronic signature is creating a legally meaningful audit trial of every step of the signature process and mathematically associating that audit trail with particular electronic document content and uniform time of signoff. This is where RPost excels – having patented the technology to provide legally valid and irrefutable evidence of signoff giving our clients the upper hand in any dispute about who signed what and when. We pioneered the technology and have shown the industry our commitment to continuously innovate and enhance it.”
The RPost electronic signature service upgrade runs on RPost’s Registered Email service technology platform and is unique in that it permits senders to send for signature and have electronic signing capabilities anywhere – from their mobile device, browser-based email and CRM services like Salesforce.com, and desktop email software – without requiring the sender or recipient to work outside of their favorite personal or corporate email accounts. In addition, there are four user modes that can be enabled, designated by sender, user group or organization once they use RPost’s electronic signature service:
“Lawyers, insurance agents and carriers, human resource professionals, sales operations managers and contracting officers today want electronic signatures services that are both simple to use, yet produce robust signoff records that can withstand legal challenge as to fact of signoff, content associated with signoff, and precise time of signoff — with authentication capabilities available far into the future when records of that signature may become critical to a business dispute,” adds Khan.
RPost has five United States patents – patent numbers 6,182,219; 6,571,334; 7,707,624; 7,865,557 and 7,966,372 that protect this RPost technology in the United States. RPost also holds thirty other patents issued in 21 countries.
RPost is the global standard for email proof, message encryption and electronic signature services. RPost Registered Email® services enable both sender and recipient to prove, sign, encrypt, archive and collaborate across desktop, mobile and online email platforms, with far less cost, time, paper and risk. RPost services are designed for industries such as insurance, financial services, legal, telecommunications, manufacturing and real estate, where the speed of contract execution, encryption or court admissible email records may be a business critical requirement.
