We are delighted to announce that eID Easy is entering into a partnership with Sweden-based electronic signature and identification solutions provider Scrive.
The main aim of the partnership is to advance and deliver access to electronic ID schemes throughout Europe, with the initial scope of the cooperation focusing on the Baltic region.
For Scrive customers, this collaboration will enable them to utilise a wider range of identity-based signature services as part of Scrive’s offering, which are legally binding and valid in an even wider range of countries. The collaboration between eID Easy and Scrive will focus on Estonia, Lithuania and Latvia in the first step, with more countries to follow in the future.
eID Easy continues to expand its coverage of methods in a wide range of countries. The eID Easy API offers access to qualified electronic signature and identification schemes that are compliant with the European Union’s eIDAS legislation in all the Nordics and Baltics, Germany, Austria, France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Romania, Bulgaria and Poland.
All documents signed via eID Easy’s APIs are legally valid across Europe, and the ones on qualified level are fully equivalent to traditional manual signatures.
“We are delighted to start working with Scrive to help expand the coverage of identity-based signatures in more European countries”, says Margus Pala, CEO at eID Easy, “As more businesses need to adopt legally valid signatures, eID Easy’s mission is to increase the speed and degree of adoption of qualified and advanced signature methods all over Europe. Together with Scrive, we are well-positioned to work towards that goal.”
“As businesses continuously become more global, there is an increasing demand for cross-border compatibility of electronic signatures, the need to sign documents shouldn’t make the building of relationships harder. The most common example would be, if the completion of a business transaction requires the signature of decision-makers from Finland, Sweden and Estonia, for example”, says Martin Röver-Parkes, Chief Product Officer, at Scrive, “Collaborating with eID Easy, we can ensure that the signatures from all those involved in cases like these are legally binding and valid, executed in a seamless product experience, thereby helping to advance, and simplifying the exchange of goods, services and ideas across borders.”
More information as well as the official announcement on the collaboration between Scrive and eID Easy will be provided at the SK Annual Conference 2022 on November 3, 2022, at the Apollo Cinema in the Ülemiste Centre in Tallinn, Estonia.
