With over 100,000 installations in Germany alone in the sectors of insurance, banking, industry, and health care, eSignatureOffice is probably the best-selling software for the handwritten electronic signature in Europe and the virtual standard in the German insurance sector. The reasons for this are both its excellent product security and the flexibility it offers with regard to the integration into existing software environments and processes. eSignatureOffice is a complete stand-alone PDF/A signing solution which does not require any additional third-party software products.

eSignatureOffice is best suited for "simple" and "advanced" electronic signature systems.

The signing solution for PDF/A Documents

eSignatureOffice enables the display and signing of PDF/A documents. Form fields can now also be filled out and saved in eSignatureOffice. eSignatureOffice is able to provide you with the highest possible security through bi-asymmetric encryption and is compatible with the use of maximum security signature pads from the naturaSign and duraSign series that add the captured signature to the document encoding the biometric data with an RSA encryption in the device.


Web Functionality

eSignatureOffice can also be opened from your internet application using so-called link handlers. eSignatureOffice also supports HTTP(s) and FTP file download for documents (PDF/A files) and control files (e.g. configuration files, signature templates etc.), as well as data transfer (upload) via FTP and HTTP(s).


Automation through intelligent signature templates

Intelligent signature templates assist you with the automatic capture of signatures and their proper positioning in your electronic document. This works even for dynamically generated documents, in which the position of the signature fields varies according to the size of the document. The places where a signature is required in a document can be established through keywords in the text (for example always below the word "signature"), as well as through predefined signature fields in the PDF document.


Intelligent signature templates control the signing sequence of all mandatory fields and all optional signature fields and, upon demand, pass this status information on to the customer's software. Depending on the situation and document type, intelligent signature templates can also carry out different kinds of macro actions (see automation).


Automation through intelligent file renaming

The signed PDF/A document often needs to be given a name that is partially derived from its content, such as the order number or client name. Intelligent file renaming can automatically search the PDF/A document for keywords (for example, the order number) and subsequently use these words or characters for the final file name of the signed PDF/A document. Intelligent file renaming can also be combined with a signature template for a fully automated signing process, in which the user is taken from one signature field to the following, and only has to sign.


A totally flexible standard application

Upon signing using the eSignatureOffice, the document can be automatically forwarded along the customer's internal workflow. Numerous possibilities for integration into existing processes are available. For an application to be flexible, the technical, as well as the functional and optical adaptability, is highly important. Buttons and functions that are not intended for the use of the user can be blocked and disabled by the administrator. Even software design can be changed. These individual settings and much more can then be exported in a configuration file (.scs) and uploaded to any number of clients.



    • Sign directly in the document (no separate window is opened for the signature)
    • Displaying the PDF's table of contents
    • Preview of the pages of the PDF as thumbnails

    • Fill in the PDF's form fields and then save completed documents
    • View the full document on colour-screen signature pads from StepOver (for example, duraSign Pad 10.0)
    • Total control over restricted access (for example hiding certain icons)

    • Transfer of individual settings for appearance and software functionality preferences



    • If the document sent to the application is a PDF/A compliant, then eSignatureOffice will provide a file in this format
    • The outgoing file will contain signatures compliant with ISO standards, allowing the verification of the PDF within any "standard" product (for example Adobe Reader), as well as being compatible with other signature solutions and tools compliant with the standard
    • Signatures based on a certificate can also be used as handwritten electronic signatures
    • When used in conjunction with a StepOver signature pad from the naturaSign and duraSign series, the resulting advanced electronic signature is compliant with eIDAS

    • Generate a file with information for the corporate application about the status of each signature field (if they have been signed or not, etc.)
    • Print signed documents

    • Complete integration into corporate applications as a visual component (OCX)
    • Settings can be created in one workplace and then can be exported and imported to any other workplace, as a configuration file
    • eSignatureOffice can be used as a plug-in for browsers such as Internet Explorer (IE6 onwards)
    • The our on-demand branding tool allows administrators to modify the user interface almost indefinitely (available on demand)



    • Intelligent signature templates (for example, automatic positioning of signature field above keywords in dynamic documents)
    • Zoom feature during the signing process and automatic jump to the next signature field
    • Different treatment for compulsory and optional signature fields (when 'cancel' is selected in a compulsory field, the whole signature process is canceled)
    • Define macros to automate events (for example save, print, send the document by email, upload files, transfer files to other programs)
    • Intelligent file naming (for example will automatically detect order number within a PDF and assign this as the name, or part of the name, of the file)



    • StepOver signature pads employ 2048-bit RSA encryption of biometric data within the signature pad itself provides maximum security
    • Signature pads from the naturaSign and duraSign series support the digital signing of documents on the pad itself
    • Optional 2048-bit RSA encryption of biometric data within the software, if another signature device is in use lowers the security
    • Supports time servers for attaching time stamps to signatures (time server requires an internet connection)
    • Sign the document without compromising security
    • Automatic blocking of signature fields after the first signature
    • The captured signature is easily verified (for example, with Adobe Acrobat Reader)
