Liverpool secure digital signature specialist E-Sign wins new contract with West Midlands Combined Authority
A Liverpool business that has designed a secure platform that allows documents to be signed securely using electronic signatures has secured a new public sector contract.
Under the deal, E-Sign will help West Midlands Combined Authority (WMCA) digitise its processes for managing and signing documents.
WMCA will use E-Sign’s robust cloud-based technology to provide a seamless, secure and reliable digital workflow for executing all required documents – from grant agreements to supplier contracts.
E-Sign provides services to a number of local authorities. This latest win comes amid a period of rapid growth for the Liverpool-based tech company.
It is benefiting from the growing number of public bodies and companies ditching paper, printing and posting habits in favour of secure digital systems.
The efficiency gains delivered by the WMCA project will free up resources for frontline services. E-Sign will also help the authority build improved cyber security user data protection systems.
Thomas Taylor, managing director of E-Sign, said: “We are hugely excited to be involved in such a significant project to help the Combined Authority build a solid digital infrastructure.
“This will free up resources, lighten the load on the environment, and boost the quality of services that residents receive.”
E-Sign’s other notable clients include the NHS, Armani, NFU Mutual and councils in Devon, Cambridgeshire, Peterborough and Somerset. Overseas clients include the Palestinian Authority.
