SEH & StepOver – Signature Pads in the Network

14. February 2023

Accelerated by digitization, there are more and more situations in which documents are signed digitally. This is often done on-site via electronic signature pads. The devices, which were specially developed for this purpose, guarantee a high level of security, but require a cable connection to the “client” (for example, a laptop or desktop PC). But what if this direct connection is not possible due to the company’s IT infrastructure? The successful cooperation between StepOver and SEH offers the solution.

The Stuttgart-based company StepOver is an expert in the field of electronic signatures. Its customers are active in a wide variety of industries, and its electronic signature solutions are correspondingly diverse. In addition to signature pads, StepOver’s product range also includes application software, interfaces and cloud solutions.

When customers approached StepOver with the desire to also operate the signature pads via network, so that digital signatures can be made at locations without a desktop PC or notebook, the partnership with SEH developed. The product utnserver Pro from SEH is ideally suited as a remote solution for connecting local USB devices.

And this is how it works: Users connect a signature pad to utnserver Pro and can then control the signature pad via any client in the network. This also allows multiple users to access the same signature pad and sign documents digitally. As StepOver’s IT experts assure, a signature pad connected to the utnserver Pro can also be controlled specifically via the e-signature software “eSignatureOffice”.

The advantages of electronic signatures are manyfold. In addition to stemming the tide of paper, it greatly simplifies business processes while minimizing the potential for errors. After signing, the signed documents are immediately available in downstream systems for further processing, research or archiving, regardless of location. The digital storage of signed documents eliminates the need to file paper documents, which is both cumbersome and costly in the long run.

SEH and StepOver have a long-standing partnership. A large number of joint projects have intensified the cooperation and ensured that the interaction between StepOver signature pads and utnserver Pro works without any problems. The representatives of StepOver and SEH are particularly proud of the ease of use of the products. StepOver and SEH are looking forward to new joint projects to support customers in the digitization process and in the introduction of electronic signatures.
