SigningHub for Word

Ascertia Limited.
The most secure way to sign word documents using advanced digital signatures


The SigningHub for Word app enables users to prepare and share documents for sign-off directly from Microsoft Word. Now you don't need to convert your word files into PDF documents, instead you can sign directly in Word using the native long-term digital signature format. The SigningHub app automatically detects the Word signature lines within the document and allows the owner to define and change the signing order before the document is sent for sign-off. Once the documents has been signed by a recipient they still review the document on the system and download a copy if allowed. Once the workflow has completed the signed document is held securely inside the owner’s SigningHub account.

Key Features:
