eOriginal and Topaz Systems Inc. celebrate 10 years of eSignature partnership

eOriginal, the digital transaction experts, and Topaz Systems Inc., a global leader in electronic signature technology, celebrated their 10 year anniversary of eSignature partnership today. Over the past decade, the duo has collaborated successfully to provide wide-ranging benefits to our mutual customers.  The eOriginal-Topaz relationship emerged during the dawn of the eSignature era, when adoption of eSignature technology was met with uncertainty due to legality concerns.

“Ten years ago adoption of eSignature technology was as an uphill battle because businesses did not comprehend the management of digital documents and the enforceability of the signature,” said Stephen Bisbee, president and CEO of eOriginal. “Partnering with Topaz Systems brought the industry a step closer to where it is today – with digital contracts being easily executed across the world.”

Together, eOriginal and Topaz worked to bring compliant technology solutions and peace-of-mind to the customer. Ten years later, the partnership has enabled businesses across industries with a proven product that provides Uniform Electronic Transaction Act (UETA) and Federal Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act (ESIGN) compliance.

“As the eSignature industry has experienced significant adoption growth, Topaz has continued to enjoy our partnership with eOriginal, to bring optimal solutions to our mutual customers,” explained Tony Zank, founder and president of Topaz Systems. “By capturing biometric data during the signing ceremony, we can assure that every document is validated and legally enforceable –attributes of the eSignature industry that are essential in the 21st century.”

Topaz Systems is a leading developer and manufacturer of electronic signature software and hardware, and has been based in Southern California since 1995. Topaz provides all the hardware, software, intellectual property and expertise to enable paperless document creation, signing, and authentication of electronic forms with digital handwritten signatures. Topaz has developed an extensive eSign patent portfolio, and is the recipient of multiple industry awards including being a multiple consecutive winner of the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 and Fast 500, along with Inc 500 and 5000 awards for outstanding growth.

In December 2020 Wolters Kluwer Governance, Risk & Compliance signed an agreement to acquire eOriginal, a leading provider of cloud-based digital lending software, for approximately €231 million in cash.
