Thanks to a combination of pragmatism and environmental awareness, dematerialisation has become part of our lives. The electronic signature and probative value archiving are essential applications in an integrated information system, in both the private and public spheres of industry. The movement accelerates everyday along with the development of digital trust and new applications to faciliate our personal and professional lives.
Dematerialisation: what is probative value?
- Certify or sign an electronic document
- Archive in a chest of native unsigned electronic documents

The main benefits of paperless signing include:
- Saving time,
- Improving traceability and tracking documents,
- Reducing costs of consumables,
