Contracts and claims in the insurance industry

Simple & fast with digital signatures

Many insurance companies are increasingly using digital signatures. Not least because the electronic signature enables legally secure processing of contract conclusions and claims settlement. With the digital signature, contracts can be signed quickly and without cumbersome scanning or mailing. Customers sign their contract on their smartphone, tablet or computer – paperless and convenient. In the event of a claim, the policyholder is obliged to provide the insurance company with authorized documents and cost items relevant to the claim. For a long time, this was a time-consuming and nerve-wracking process. With the use of digital signature processes from StepOver, the exchange of documents between the insurance company and the policyholder becomes simple, fast and efficient.
StepOver’s signature solutions have proven themselves many times over in the insurance industry and are used, among others, by these providers:
