Tieto launches new signature service with Freja eID for more efficient document handling
Tieto is launching Tieto Public Document Signing, an independent signature service which is integrated with Freja eID. Companies, authorities and organizations can use the solution to make legally binding digital signatures, resulting in greater efficiency and reducing the amount of administration.
Tieto and Verisec already cooperate closely concerning Freja eID. Tieto is now launching a document signing service which will render customers’ document handling more efficient and support their digitalization projects.
“Paper handling and analogue processes are still the norms when it comes to signatures, and often they prevent the digitalization of our customers’ business processes. Electronic signatures have been around for a long time, but for many reasons, it is still not a widespread alternative. In order to succeed in implementing electronic signatures within more organizations, e-identification is key,” says Ulrika Giers, head of business development within Public Sector, Tieto.
Freja eID is Sweden’s first mobile e-identification for private and public organizations that have received approval from the state-run Swedish E-identification Board. Freja eID can be used to identify citizens, which opens up the possibility to sign documents in accordance with the EU’s new directive (eIDAS). User groups who currently lack already existing e-identification can also use Freja eID on a basic level, which enables increased digitalization for groups which are today limited to paper-based processes.
“Considering Tieto’s strong position within the public sector, we’re of course very pleased to be able to offer our customers their signatory service. The demand for flexible solutions for digital signatures is huge and an obvious user area for Freja eID,” says Johan Henrikson, CEO, Verisec.
