My goal in this blog series is to cover a wide range of topics and issues relating to digital signatures. Let’s get started with a hot question that comes up repeatedly at my talks and webinars, “If an employee leaves our company, and he is removed from the digital signature system, what happens to the documents he signed in the past? Do those signatures remain valid?”
“Adoption” is a hot topic for SharePoint pros—how can you increase user adoption in your organization? Alas, very often their complaint is: “We built it but they didn’t come!” The solution is to enable your users to digitally sign their documents from within their SharePoint system.
Getting ahead means harnessing & coordinating ideas from the best experts inside and outside your organization. But creating and securing high-performing collaborative digital work environments is the challenge of our time.

As business-critical processes continue to make their way onto SharePoint, they create an increasingly prevalent need for secure, legally-enforceable, and manageable automated signature capability. This is due in part by the fact that, without a digital signing capability within SharePoint, paper is introduced into otherwise automated processes each time the need for a signature authorization arises, thus creating the need to print, manually route, track, and archive paper documents. In addition to increasing organizational costs and inducing process delays, this reliance on paper hinders the enhanced efficiency and collaboration companies seek to achieve via SharePoint.
“Adding digital signatures to our SharePoint deployment has changed the way we’ve done business,” said Hans Christansen, CEO, CPI. “It has saved us money and significantly improved our customer service.”
At C&P Inspection (CPI), an inspection and quality assurance firm, the investment in SharePoint centered on the need to make it easier for the firm’s worldwide team of inspectors to manage reports generated at customer locations around the world. However, signature approvals required on these reports forced printed documents into the workflow, preventing CPI from leveraging the full benefits of its investment in business automation.
