Choosing the right business supplier in any given industry usually involves a process of thorough research and successful trials that show clear benefits to the organisation. The favoured supplier must demonstrate what they can do that others can’t; they must offer a proven quality of their product/service and the skills of their people, and present credible results.
A good example of this was provided by Peoplebank recently when they implemented the Secured Signing SaaS solution. Peoplebank, Australia’s largest IT and specialist recruiter, has chosen to replace its lengthy back office paperwork with Secured Signing’s prompt, efficient, and highly secure technology. Secured Signing’s Personalised X509 PKI Digital Signature allows Peoplebank to automate and manage many of its contract preparation processes - including the pre-loading of sensitive contact information (i.e. TFN, Tax File Numbers). Early results show savings of around an hour-and-a-half with each new contractor placement.
With Secured Signing, Peoplebank’s sales team is now able to upload an onboarding electronic package that is sent to the contractors and includes workflow, due date for sign-off, and particular contractors’ job guidelines. Contractors can securely and instantly fill-in and eSign the forms from anywhere, at any time, and no longer need to travel to Peoplebank’s offices or print or scan the forms. Information gathered is accurate, and all parties involved receive the complete and signed forms in a PDF format along with a detailed audit trail.
Peoplebank’s CEO, Peter Acheson, commented saying: “New technology and practices are developed constantly, and getting precisely the right mix of skills and experiences on board can make all the difference...we ‘re excited by opportunities to spend less time on the back-end and more time on high-value aspects of our work. Secured Signing is helping our recruiters do just that...”
And as Steve Jobs once said: “Design is the fundamental soul of a man-made creation that ends up expressing itself in successive outer layers of the product or service.”
