92 per cent of the car dealers surveyed are in favour of electronic signatures

The car trade is one of the sectors hit hardest by Corona. After suffering a slowdown from full speed and eventually coming to a complete standstill, manufacturers and dealers must now revive the business quickly and sustainably. They are looking for ways to streamline their operations and improve the customer experience. One important building block for this is the digitisation of the sales processes. So far, salespeople obtain up to a dozen or more signatures from their customers on paper during a typical sale.
This approach is not only time-consuming and inefficient, but also out of step with the need to protect the environment and conserve resources. In a survey which we conducted with our partner Pixelconcept covering 100 car dealerships, the vast majority of those dealers surveyed wanted to be able to collect signatures electronically in the future. Only 8% want to remain loyal to the paper-based approach.

When it comes to the desire for electronic signatures, the following processes enjoy a particular focus among traders:
In addition to sales, there are also, for example, many possibilities in after sales for the use of electronic signatures, e.g. in the workshop business. From the cost-effective single-user application to the customised enterprise application with interface access, inSign offers the right solution for every requirement in the car trade. The e-signature inSign complies with the regulations of the eIDAS Regulation and is also compliant with the General Data Protection Regulation.
