The Auckland District Law Society (ADLS) is to use New Zealand digital signature provider, Secured Signing’s cloud based service to provide digital signatures for its WebForms platform for online legal document creation, used by more than 1000 New Zealand law firms.
ADLS, a membership organisation for legal professionals with more than 4,500 members, produces and maintains over 100 online legal forms, including forms for agreement for sale and purchase of real estate.
Secured Signing says the addition of a digital signing service to WebForms will bring a new level of efficiency to the relationship between lawyers and their clients, enabling legal practitioners to manage and track the digital signing process from one platform.
ADLS president Joanna Pidgeon said digital signing would transform how lawyers, clients and their businesses work together. “As people’s lives become busier and traffic gets heavier, digital signing will mean increased efficiency for the document signing process, more convenience and also cost-effectiveness,” she said.
Secured Signing was founded in 2008 by TME Consulting to provide software as a service (saas) applications based on personalised X509 PKI digital signature technology.
