Singapore is truly a digital-first nation with a digital government, digital economy, and digital society. The country has transformed itself with technology in the last few decades and opened up endless possibilities. Today, almost 99% of government services are digital from end to end. This is possible because the government is backing strategic national projects, such as e-payments, national digital identity (Singpass), smart urban mobility, and much more to enable smart technologies across Singapore.
Singpass was launched in 2003 by the Singapore government to allow citizens and residents to access various government services online. On November 5, 2020, Singpass introduced Sign with Singpass to help businesses electronically sign documents during the pandemic. Zoho Sign, Zoho's digital signature application, has partnered with the Government Technology Agency (GovTech) to offer Sign with Singpass directly from the Zoho Sign application.
Let's take a look at how Zoho Sign is tailor-made for Singapore businesses:
Zoho Sign + Sign with Singpass
- The integration allows users to digitally sign documents, such as contracts and agreements, using their Singpass credentials.
- The National Certification Authority issues digital signing certificates.
- Documents signed this way are legally valid and equivalent to signing with pen and paper.
- The integration also reduces the overall document turnaround time, cutting costs spent on printing, scanning, and mailing.
