Entrepreneurs from Granada develop Firmafy, a software that allows electronic signature so that SMEs can validate documents from their mobile without a digital certificate, with guarantees and security.
The digitization of SMEs continues to advance and they increasingly use tools to facilitate their activity. As a result of this adoption of new technologies, and the needs of your business, the Firmafy.
It is a software of Electronic signature created by a Granada startup that allows you to sign documents from your mobile device without using digital certificates and with all the legal guarantees and total security.
An easy-to-use system, without technical complications, since to sign documents it will only be necessary to download the software, open the document and sign it with your finger. In this way, and as Fran Cortés, CEO of Firmafy explains, SMEs can validate documents quickly and easily, allowing multiple signatories, saving time and costs and with all the legal and security guarantees.
“People are unaware that there is a much easier alternative to use than the digital certificate: the advanced electronic signature, which is the system we use at Firmafy. A system that complies with the European eIDAS and data protection regulations; and it’s as simple as opening a link and starting to sign “, explains the head of the company.
To make the use of this advanced electronic signature as easy as possible, Firmafy is developing a mobile application that will be available for iOS and Android and that can be downloaded for free so that anyone can easily sign all kinds of documents from their mobile.
Electronic signature with guarantees
Although Firmafy’s proposal seeks to make life easier for all SMEs by simplifying the way in which they access, sign and deliver documents, there are a series of sectors that are going to benefit the most, such as insurance companies, real estate and the departments of Human Resources.
It is a step forward in the use of electronic signatures given the confusion that exists and the malpractice that some users make when signing documents due to lack of knowledge. Also for false beliefs like “To think that copying a signature image and pasting it into a document serves as if it had been signed by hand, which lacks legal validity. Another common mistake is to transfer the digital certificate to a third party to carry out procedures, which makes you lose control over the use that you can make “explains Cortés.
To avoid these situations, Firmafy’s proposal makes the use of advanced electronic signature accessible to the user in a simple way, an accreditation system of online identity regulated by the European Union, which allows the signatory to be linked in a unique way. It uses the data of that person and associates it with the data signed in a document, from a highly trusted device, preventing any subsequent alteration.
Therefore, its solution allows to universalize the use of advanced electronic signature so that any company, regardless of its size and budget, can digitize your processes to be more efficient and sustainable.
All this with the legal guarantees that these types of documents require since, as Cortés explains, “It is essential that the signature system used guarantees the identity of the signer and that this document has not been altered over time. At Firmafy, for example, we collect 5 types of evidence that give full guarantee and legality to the signatures made “.
A different proposal developed in Granada by a startup accelerated by the Minerva program, the technological entrepreneurship initiative of the Ministry of Economic Transformation, Industry, Knowledge and Universities, as well as with the support of Vodafone. In its three years of life, Firmafy already has more than 5,000 users and large clients such as Action against hunger, Benetton or the Open University of Catalonia (UOC).
