Consensus Cloud Solutions Delivers First e-Signature Solution Secured by Blockchain
LOS ANGELES (BUSINESSWIRE) — Consensus Cloud Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: CCSI), the developers of eFax®, a leading document transmission and data-exchange solution, announced today the launch of its new standalone e-signature product called jSign. The solution enables customers to send signature requests and then secure, and electronically sign, documents through a tamper-free online interface built on blockchain technology.
“We are excited to add jSign to our growing suite of information exchange solutions for businesses of all sizes,” said John Nebergall, Consensus Cloud Solutions’ Chief Operating Officer. “The use of blockchain to address key e-signature components, such as audit-trails, and non-repudiation is an important innovation that will benefit our customers from multiple industries that require a secure, easy-to-use, e-signature product at an affordable price. Our first obligation is to the healthcare market, assisting providers, payers and caregivers to improve communications. In addition, because we deal with highly regulated organizations, much of what we offer can apply to document-reliant regulated industries such as legal, financial and manufacturing.”
The early jSign customers have noted the ease of use and value pricing as a benefit. “It’s so easy to use. I use it primarily for financial contracts for our patients. I love the ease of it, and many of our patients appreciate the convenience of signing electronically,” stated Amy Datwyler, Datwyler Orthodontics.
With Consensus jSign you can embed e-signatures into workflows through Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) and store documents in a number of assigned data repositories. As a cloud solution, signed documents can be stored in jSign or downloaded for offline archival.
The use of blockchain provides the highest level of audit trails with time stamps to track documents; certificates of completion; as well as IP and signer address locations. The jSign blockchain also tracks items as specific as the types of devices and browsers used to sign each document. Additionally, two-factor authentication (2FA) can be set up through a mobile number as an extra layer of security and identity validation.
