San Francisco, California September 24, 2009
ARX Inc., a leading provider of digital signature (standard electronic signature) technology, announces the release of CoSign Desktop, a ground-breaking desktop-based digital signature solution from the CoSign line of products. While digital signature technology has existed for many years and become an increasingly popular signing solution for mid-sized to large organizations, CoSign Desktop makes this technology accessible to individuals and small offices by removing the cost and deployment barriers.
Priced at just $9.95/month for an unlimited number of signatures, CoSign Desktop is the ideal solution for an individual or small office user that wants to close deals and get agreements signed quickly, save on UPS or FedEX charges, and accelerate sales cycles. The CoSign digital signature solution has been used by over 2 million individuals globally to produce over 400 million digital signatures, saving an estimated $2.8 billion and 250,000 trees. To see how Cosign works, watch a one minute demo.
CoSign Desktop is packed with useful functionality, including the ability to place eSignatures and graphical signatures on documents with the click of a mouse. By removing the need to upload files to a third-party website or even be connected to the internet for signing, CoSign Desktop makes signing and verifying signatures simpler and shorter and keeps confidential agreements confidential. Additional functionality includes the ability to convert any document into a digitally signed PDF, as well as the capability of digitally signing PDF documents, Microsoft Office documents, and any other standard document format. Experience CoSign Desktop's functionality first hand via a free digital signature solution 30 day trial.
As a standards-based (PKI-based) solution, the digital signatures created by CoSign Desktop reside inside the document permanently, allowing verification by anyone, anytime, anywhere, without the need to download special verification software. Because it is based on secure digital signature technology, CoSign also ensures legal compliance with the rigorous standards of the most tightly regulated industries and geographies. It also means that the signed documents are not tied to any specific vendor with proprietary software that may cease to exist one day, making the signed agreement impossible to verify.
"For a long time we felt the demand for a solution aimed at individual users and small offices. We're very excited to finally be able to offer all of the functionality of CoSign Central, our market-leading corporate and enterprise digital signature solution, to such users," said Gadi Aharoni, CEO, ARX. "With the introduction of CoSign Desktop into the marketplace the benefits of digital signature technology are available to everyone."
CoSign Desktop enables users to quickly and easily add CoSign digital signatures to documents in all major applications and file formats including: Word, Excel®, Outlook®, PDF®, TIFF, AutoCAD®, InfoPath®, and more. With the release of CoSign Desktop, ARX has bridged the gap that prevented an entire business segment from using intuitive digital signature solutions.
