The founder of live video social network, Kondoot.com, Mark Cracknell, in partnership with Mark Smith, have launched a digital signature platform called SignForms.com.
The online document distribution platform has received backing from Brisbane-based technology investment company, NGU Group.
SignForms.com gives users the ability to sign contracts, forms, orders and other documents online.
The idea was born about six months ago, deriving from Smith's history in the real estate industry, where he noticed people having difficulties with printing, scanning and sending forms and contracts.
"It would delay sales and waste time for everybody involved, there was also a lot of paper wasted for one signature," Smith said.
A lot of research went into SignForms.com prior to the launch, Cracknell said to see if documents signed online would still be legally binding and if the technology works to make it simple to use.
"The whole point of this is stop people from wasting time and there's no point in doing it if the technology isn't simple to use," Cracknell said.
Plans are in place to grow the features of the platform to offer tailor-made packages for each industry with relevant forms already created for the business. It can be used on any device with an Internet connection including smart phones, tablets, laptops and desktops. It also ensures all signatures are correctly placed before notifying the business owner that the contract is signed and ready.
According to Cracknell, the platform has been launched in more than 50 countries and there are security and privacy measures put in place to protect documents.
"We actually track the way the signature is physically drawn on to the phone, tablet or computer," Cracknell said.
