Adobe is further differentiating Adobe Document Cloud with industry-first signer identity and workflow improvements focused on enabling seamless digital customer onboarding for FSIs, the industry’s most comprehensive HR solution support and even stronger document security as Adobe Acrobat becomes Microsoft’s preferred PDF solution for Microsoft Information Protection.

Adobe Sign introduces industry-first passport authentication for FSI customer onboarding

Implementing an e-signature solution is a simple way to digitally transform your company, attract new business online and help customer save time. But for some industries, especially banking and other financial services, e-signatures are a no-go unless they can confidently verify the identity of their customers.

Adobe has solved this problem with the latest release of Adobe Sign that pioneers an industry-first signer identification option called Government ID Authentication, which uses a photo of a machine readable passport (MRZ passport) as a second form of digital ID authentication. When enabled, signers are guided through the process of using their mobile phone to snap a photo of a physical passport in Adobe Sign.

Adobe Sign automatically and comprehensively evaluates the passport’s security features, like patterns, fonts and layout, to authenticate the identity of the signer and allow them to complete the signature process.

Many of the world’s largest financial service providers already trust Adobe Sign for their customers’ digital enrollment and many are expected to adopt Government ID Authentication to make the process an even better experience for everyone involved.

Adobe Sign expands its comprehensive support of HR solutions with industry-first integrations in Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Talent and ServiceNow HR Service Delivery

While the HR technology industry is laser focused on employee experiences, there are still so many paper dependent HR processes that degrade employee experience and waste limited HR resources.

Adobe Sign has integrations with the most widely used HR solutions to help deliver an all-digital employee experience. And now to support even more HR organizations, Adobe is releasing new, industry first integrations with two powerful HR solutions: Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Talent and ServiceNow HR Service Delivery.

Adobe Sign is the first and only e-signature solution to be integrated with these HR platforms. The Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Talent and ServiceNow HR Service Delivery integrations join other Adobe Sign integrations with widely adopted HR solutions like Workday and SAP SuccessFactors to make e-signatures part of company-wide document processes.
