If you work with forms, then you probably need to get them signed too.
Tablet PCs are often used for getting signatures in real estate and mortgage broking. In fact, any company that uses contracts can benefit from Tablet PCs.
A Tablet PC is the simplest way to capture and store digital ink signatures. There are 3 really easy ways to capture signatures with a Tablet PC right out of the box:
- Create a digital version of your paper form with Windows Journal and the signature on that (easiest for everyone)
- Simply embed a digital ink field into your windows based application that stores the signature to your database (easy for programmer)
- Use the specialist digital ink signature control capabilities to capture and encrypt signatures (not too hard for programmer)
