Northern Digital Automates Workflow and e-Signature With AlphaTrust e-Sign

Next-Gen Product Powers Contactless Workflow Management and e-Signature in COVID-19 Environment

EXTON, PA (October 7, 2020) – AlphaTrust® Corporation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of iPipeline® and leading provider of white-labeled electronic signature and workflow solutions, today announced Northern Digital Inc.® (NDI) a global leading innovator and manufacturer of advanced 3D measurement technology systems, with over 45,000 installations worldwide, has selected AlphaTrust e-Sign to automate the routing of Non-Disclosure Agreements (NDA) to clients and suppliers for review and e-Signature. As a special feature, when the terms of a specific NDA are being negotiated and result in changes, the signature block area at the bottom of the document is maintained for completion throughout the process.

“The routing of one critical document to many individuals for review, modification, and approval by signature can be a major challenge, particularly in today’s COVID-19 environment. When faced with sending out a large quantity of NDAs to a variety of companies for review, the potential for the process to stall or for documents to be misplaced is great. This typically results in undesirable delays, resending documents, and a protracted sales process,” said Larry Berran, CEO, iPipeline and AlphaTrust. “AlphaTrust e-Sign has been designed to enable clients to predefine a workflow and then automatically route disparate documents to multiple parties for reviews and modifications during negotiations. User-defined rules power AlphaTrust, making it much more than a typical e-Signature solution. We are enabling companies to adjust to today’s challenges in the contactless environment and are pleased NDI is reaping value from this product.”

“With 45,000 installations of our 3D measurement technology system deployed worldwide and a large quantity of NDAs being sent to clients and suppliers for review and acceptance, it was essential for us to implement a product to automate how we manage the process and capture signatures. We needed more than a typical e-Signature product and something to automate workflows,” said Dave Rath, President, NDI. “AlphaTrust e-Sign was rapidly installed and once our workflow rules were defined, we put the product to work in our NDA reviews. We have noticed a marked improvement in the speed of execution for NDAs undergoing rigorous reviews for acceptance and signature. The beauty of the brandable product is that it enables all of this to be done remotely and without contact, and the signature block remains consistent throughout the process. Notifications are sent out to all parties upon completion of the process. We are currently exploring additional ways to diversify the use of AlphaTrust e-Sign at NDI.”

iPipeline Integrates AlphaTrust e-Sign into the AFFIRM Order Entry Platform

e-Sign Enables Advisors to Remotely Execute 1035 Exchanges in Wake of the COVID-19 Pandemic

EXTON, PA (July 14, 2020) – iPipeline® – a leading provider of cloud-based software solutions for the life insurance and financial services industry – today announced the integration of AlphaTrust® e-Sign into the AFFIRM® order entry system used by the nation’s most respected financial institutions and their advisors. The integration enables advisors to overcome remote selling obstacles and rapidly secure electronic signatures to accelerate 1035 exchanges and other transactions in today’s COVID-19 selling environment. The integration is immediately available for purchase by all AFFIRM customers.

“The impact from the COVID-19 pandemic has rippled throughout the entire financial services industry. Advisors have been challenged in this contactless environment to execute their 1035 exchanges and other transactions, all of which require client signatures. Advisors are particularly in need of technologies that simplify and improve the customer experience,” said Larry Berran, CEO, iPipeline. “At the onset of the pandemic, we rallied to bring e-Signature and e-Delivery to all of our customers to enable them to continue their business cadence. We are pleased to offer our AFFIRM customers the AlphaTrust e-Sign integration to remove obstacles and increase customer satisfaction.”

“Business priorities have clearly shifted. Top executives are less focused on speed-to-market initiatives and more on recovery as they are concerned about sustainability. According to a recent Novarica survey, 65% of life insurers have been forced to prioritize digital initiatives to optimize business performance because of stay-at-home measures. e-Signature is a critical component in a well-thought out digital strategy,” said Tom Benton, Vice President Research and Consulting, Novarica. “While cost reductions are on the list of priorities, we are not seeing large budget cuts as they pertain to technologies. Technology providers who are integrating capabilities such as e-Signature into their products are positioned appropriately at this time to enable customers to reap the benefits of digitization.”
