PDF in general PDF 2.0 Member News Case study

Swisscom Trust Services is the leading trust service provider in Europe, enabling their partners to implement business models for efficient, location-independent and completely digital processing with their customers.

They have developed their All-in Signing Service; a remote service for the legally binding electronic signing and timestamping of documents. By using the Signing Service, Swisscom’s business partners can offer their customers digital processes for document transactions. Numerous companies (especially from the banking sector) have already recognized this potential and integrated their remote signing service into their workflows to sign various types of PDF such as legal contracts, financial contracts, invoices etc.

The Signing Service was developed by making use of the long-standing digital signing capabilities of iText. Their solution has been using iText as the backbone of its PDF signing engine for over 5 years.

“We chose iText to power the PDF signing part of AIS due to its ease of use and flexibility. Thanks to its provision of an abstraction layer for PDF, it enables our customers to produce digitally signed PDFs without having to know about the PDF specifications.”
