Score 10 out of 10
When Inland Revenue finally caught up well over a decade after our 2002 Act recognising digital signatures, I looked at options and was surprised to find that a Kiwi product compared more than favourably with others on the world stage.
Work is so much faster now we are now a paperless office, having done away with inconvenient paperwork. This was particularly important to us as we are a cloud-only accountant (client support via TeamViewer is a key aspect of our work) so clients are around the country.
Support was excellent as we got familiar with the product - which has continually advanced since we first saw it. We asked colleagues for their advice - most are still paper-based, but those who had tried bigger players had met with less success than we have had.
- Once clients have reviewed a draft document, we submit it to SecuredSigning, who emails the client(s) links to "sign". At the end of the process, we each receive a digitally signed copy.
- We see no deficiencies in the product. Even the new anti-money laundering etc rules seem to be catered for. The few things we did wish were there have all been added as the product has developed.

Anywhere signatures are required this serves well - except where signatories do not have their own unique email address.
