Zoho Sign for Kenyan businesses

Hello, Kenyan businesses!

It's time to say goodbye to signing documents with pen and paper by adopting a secure, swift, and globally compliant and recognised digital signature solution. Zoho Sign has partnered with licensed Electronic Certification Service Providers (E-CSPs) that are accredited by the Communications Authority of Kenya to offer local legal validity, thereby enabling our Kenyan users to digitally execute their contracts and agreements with confidence. This development will also encourage government agencies, businesses, and individuals across Kenya to adopt digital signatures and transactions.  

Why go digital?

Businesses and government services in Kenya are undergoing tremendous digital growth. The Government of Kenya has launched a ten-year Digital Master Plan from 2022 to 2032, which includes plans for new digital initiatives such as digital identity proofs, a national public key infrastructure (PKI) for digital signatures, and digital literacy programmes. It's time for businesses to start transitioning to digital platforms for increased global presence and efficient growth.

Digital signatures are a vital part of this digital transformation. A comprehensive digital signature platform must not only be secure and legally compliant, but seamlessly automate and accelerate signature workflows with accuracy and efficiency.
