I create legal documents requiring signatures. I use visual basic 2010 / SQL to create workflows to collect data and print via crystal reports. Software runs as Windows application in inside a Domain. The documents are currently completely prefilled except for committee members signatures. I have been asked to report on technology needed to collect signatures for auditing purposes. We store physical documents at this time.
I would expect workflow to be something like...
1) Normal Document creation process
2) Meeting End
Some action to collect signature for particpants in meeting (can be multiple of committee)
Could be scan, picture, special device?
3) Merge collected signatures into document in correct signature places.
4) PDF document after merging signatures onto document image.
I am in thinking mode and need idea's - please share thoughts.
So, How would you collect signatures on documents?
Any advice/suggestions/thoughts/idea are appreciated...
