Leading integrated financial services provider HNB FINANCE PLC announced its pioneering initiative to enable digital signatures for customers to encourage paperless transactions in its day-to-day operations, through its partnership with‘Bridge Advisory & Consulting’ and ‘DocuSign’.
Already, the company has implemented the model for internal operations, and will soon enable customers to use this modern facility to use e-signatures, instead of conventional written signatures.
“The implementation of the virtual signature model is a definitive step towards HNB FINANCE’s digital journey. It also goes in line with our sustainable business model, achieving a significant reduction in our carbon footprint by eliminating paper use, and maintaining safe distancing to support social distancing measures to combat the ongoing pandemic situation,” commented HNB FINANCE Managing Director/CEO ChamindaPrabhath.
While the e-signature model is prominently used by banks, this is a first to be introduced to customers of finance companies, and enables HNB FINANCE to pioneer its digital transformation journey by setting the benchmark within the Sri Lankan NBFI sector.
