Blockchain is a shared, unalterable digital ledger that enables businesses to store any kind of data. The technology uses a mechanism that prevents records from being modified, ensuring it’s easy to maintain audit trails and verify data integrity. As a result, Blockchain systems have been widely used to record cryptocurrency transactions like Bitcoin. However, Blockchain can also be used to securely store data while collecting electronic signatures and capturing when and where a customer or user signed a document.

Blockchain is the ideal mechanism for businesses to record, secure and store the entire eSignature process. They can even use a blockchain foundation to gain an advantage over their competitors. Blockchain systems feature several elements that help businesses capture and store documents and eSignatures, including:

Smart contracts: Rules inside the blockchain system that automatically execute when specific predefined conditions are met. Smart contracts can replace time-consuming manual processes, such as counterchecking policies and vetting new suppliers, to speed up and automate validation processes.

Distributed ledger technology (DLT): DLT decentralizes blockchain to enhance the security of stored data. Rather than retaining records in central databases, a blockchain ledger stores data across multiple computers or nodes on a network. As a result, hackers would have to breach numerous parts of a network to compromise or steal data, which makes the technology extremely secure.

Unchangeable records: Blockchain systems use immutability to prevent anyone from deleting or modifying records after they’ve been created. Did you know that when a document has a mistake, a new one must be created to correct it, and both the original and replacement must be made visible for transparency?

Consensus’ blockchain solutions are designed from the ground up to guarantee security and compliance. The products make every digital signature legally binding and provide detailed audit trails at every step of the process, including tracking the IP number, browser, device and location of each signer.

Blockchain solutions provided by Consensus, including jSign, use tamper-proof blockchain technology to provide secure document signing, prevent signature tampering and create a solid audit trail. They use automatic form fills to ensure customers can securely request and capture signatures, send critical signed documents, and track the process through notifications. The solutions are offered as standalone products or can be added to all Consensus enterprise and customized solutions.

Consensus’ jSign is the only solution of its kind to be built using blockchain technology. It provides companies with a simple but highly affordable eSignature platform across all popular file formats with enterprise-level security and capabilities. These include application programming interfaces (APIs), complete audit trails, fraud prevention, non-repudiation protection, reporting and user management.


Simplify document signing and workflows.

In the US, electronic signatures are governed under the Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act of 2000. The law lays out several provisions that constitute a signature to be legally binding: signer intent, record retention and record integrity. Any business that needs to maintain electronically signed documents must prove its clients or patients signed and willingly entered into a legally binding agreement. The law also puts full responsibility on the organization to verify records have been stored securely and haven’t been altered since they were created.

Blockchain technology is uniquely positioned to help businesses that need to regularly collect and store eSignatures. And with jSign, it’s easy to implement eSignature technology effectively. Consensus’ Blockchain solutions enable companies to simplify document signing and improve document workflows.

Many data privacy laws, from HIPAA to the California Consumer Privacy Act, are intentionally vague about the processes and systems businesses should use. While regulators expect them to deploy the most sophisticated data protection technology available. Very few technologies are as secure or tamper-proof as blockchain and, because data stored on blockchain systems is decentralized and private, it’s near-impossible to alter. This makes blockchain crucial to regulatory compliance, ensuring client or patient data is not only secure but also can’t be altered or compromised.


Blockchain is critical to secure eSignatures

Blockchain solutions can help businesses capture and prove a client or customer’s intent to enter an agreement. Use cases of Blockchain technology’s benefits include:

Financial services organizations, such as banks, brokers and investment firms, rely on legally binding client agreements to access their accounts. If a client suffers a significant paper loss and claims they never authorized the firm to make the trades, the organization needs guarantees of the agreement.

Blockchain technology enables financial firms to record every step of the signing process and store the data in a distributed, unalterable and tamper-proof environment. It also captures information about every electronic signature, such as the signer’s device and IP address, the location it was signed and the timestamp.

Healthcare providers and medical practices maintain electronic records containing vast volumes of patients’ health data and administrative documents. These include signatures belonging to both patients and other providers in their networks. It’s therefore crucial for healthcare practices to collect and store electronic records in a manner that complies with HIPAA standards for data confidentiality and security. Additionally, HIPAA guidelines, along with other regulations like the Sarbanes-Oxley Act and the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, demand that companies not only secure personal data but can also retrieve it quickly when requested by a consumer or for a regulatory audit.

Real estate firms rely on client signatures to confirm a new homeowner’s intention to purchase a property they’ve listed. But if a client decides to back out of the purchase, the real estate firm requires proof that they signed a legally binding contract. Blockchain solutions provide an added layer of protection, ensuring a timestamp record of a client agreeing to make the purchase and entering a legally binding agreement.

The healthcare industry has traditionally faced significant challenges around issues like data security, access to patient information, the counterfeiting of products, privacy and managing the supply chain. Blockchain helps organizations address these risks by establishing trust, ensuring data integrity and encouraging collaboration with disparate vendors, enabling colleagues and partners to collaborate confidently while retaining control of data access.

Blockchain solutions also enable healthcare providers to record the movement of pharmaceutical products through the supply chain and use smart contracts to automate processes. This enhances audit trails by tracing items back to their source of origin or receiving pharmacy and bringing speed and efficiency to the supply chain. As a result, providers can recall products in seconds to fight counterfeiting and resolve disputes simply.

Consensus’ Blockchain solutions provide secure, on-demand data access to connect providers to patient information wherever they’re treated. The solutions help to improve operational outcomes, inform clinical decision-making, streamline workflows, empower care teams and protect health information.

Supply Chain

Many businesses struggle to make data available, trusted and visible across their supply chain networks. But distributed ledger technology enables trusted data to be shared through trusted networks, which helps organizations guarantee the authenticity of products, increase visibility and demonstrate responsible sourcing. As a result, Blockchain provides businesses with a shared, single version of the truth that provides greater visibility of all activity across their supply chains.

Furthermore, the use of smart contracts can provide real-time visibility of business operations and simplify decision-making. Blockchain can also ease the time-consuming manual process of researching, verifying and onboarding new providers and suppliers.

Travel and Transport

The vast number of moving parts across the travel and transport industry can easily lead to complexity, human error and transaction disputes. But introducing secure and trustworthy Blockchain technology helps organizations make data information more visible, speed up transactions, prevent fraudulent activity and streamline their operations. Blockchain systems can also enhance experiences for travelers and employees, reducing congestion in terminals or waiting lounges and reducing the need to show multiple travel documents.

Next Steps

Businesses exploring electronic signature solutions are likely searching for products that offer affordability, ease of use and simple integration into their workflows. However, while these are important considerations, the use of Blockchain to securely store and manage electronic signatures also offers significant cost-effective benefits. As a result, the technology should be the foundation for any eSignature app.
