There were many occasions that the key authorised signatories’ electronic signatures were used to sign on tempered or unknown agreements. They had received many calls or even overseas visitors claiming to have signed contracts with him. It was time consuming for the company to verify the agreements and trace the original versions.
The company has explored some of the existing eSignature applications. These applications charge an average monthly subscription of USD $10 per user per month, which will work out to be US$360 or S$500 over a period of 3 years.
