Wacom Showcases Electronic Handwritten Signature Solutions at BAI Retail Delivery 2014

Advanced Pen Technology Speeds Transactions and Helps Prevent Fraud. Experience the Wacom Difference at Booth #3921.

VANCOUVER, Wash – As the world's leading manufacturer of signature capture solutions, Wacom® has increased operational efficiencies for banks, credit unions and other financial institutions across the globe. Attendees of BAI Retail Delivery 2014 at McCormick Place in Chicago, IL, November 12 to 14, can get hands-on experience with Wacom's line of STU signature pads and the DTU-1031 small footprint interactive pen display - all durable and reliable products that help banks reduce costs by providing a highly secure, paperless workflow.

Wacom's electronic signature solutions can be easily integrated into any existing financial system and this has helped the company forge several new business relationships with leading soluton providers. Wausau Financial Systems (Booth # 4914), Hyland Software (#4716) and SQN Banking Systems (#3932) will be demonstrating their solutions at BAI.

"Today, most financial forms can be signed electronically, which makes capturing handwritten electronic signatures an essential step for efficiency-minded organizations," said Michael Marcum, vice president of vertical market solutions for Wacom Americas. "Now, banks can remove the printing, scanning, storing, archiving and searching costs that come with paper documents without sacrificing security."

Paperless Productivity and Electronic Efficiency

A range of financial industry workflows can be converted to paperless and deliver operational efficiencies and cost savings. Wacom and its network of technology integrators implement handwritten electronic signatures in receipt capture, account opening and loan origination workflows and in doing so improve security, minimize costs and exceptions and manage transactions more quickly.

Institutions and consumers agree that signing with Wacom is a comfortable, natural signing experience that feels just like using a real ink pen on paper. Wacom's pressure-sensitive pen technology also provides verifiable signature data to core processing systems, resulting in improved security.

Wacom signature pads can further maximize ROI by displaying ads and promotions when not actively capturing a signature, thus ensuring they are in use 100% of the time.

Fraud Prevention

The DNA of a signature contains more information than the mark left behind. With Wacom's pressure-sensitive technology, banks can easily verify the forensic attributes that make a signature unique. From the length of time it takes to sign to nuanced manual expressions like pen strokes and angles, each bit of data is collected and stored for future analysis. Forgers may be able to fake the appearance of pen-and-ink signatures, but cannot duplicate the personal biometrics a Wacom pad records. If necessary, the legal authenticity of a signature can be verified with an extremely high degree of confidence at any time.
