SABIC Europe chooses electronic signatures for European Market

July 8, 2008  |  Uncategorized

The legally compliant AuthentiDate signature solution replaces paper processes.

SABIC Europe, the international chemical group is immediately beginning to use electronic signatures for the electronic transmission of invoices and credit notes within Europe. Software by AuthentiDate, the signature specialist, will be used to create the legally required signatures.

More than 10 European countries including France, Great Britain and Spain are already linked to the new electronic procedure. The signed invoices and credit notes can be used for sales tax deduction without additional paper documents.

The AuthentiDate signature solution compliments SABIC’s new invoicing portal. Signed invoices and credit notes can therefore be transmitted by e-mail or provided as downloads.

SABIC Europe chose to use software by the signature specialist, AuthentiDate, because this provides an internationally widely accepted and practical solution, which can be integrated flexibly into existing processes. In addition the deciding factor was the high investment security and proven compliance with legal regulations provided by the AuthentiDate signature software.

By using the signature solution SABIC Europe is not only optimising its own processes but at the same time is offering its customers an improved opportunity for invoice verification and processing.

Besides the area of signature creation AuthentiDate also offers SABIC Europe’s invoice recipients an international, multilingual web service for signature verification.  This service is available round the clock at The recipients of the signed invoices and credit notes therefore require no additional software in order to verify signatures. This allows the simple, rapid and international expansion of signed invoice and credit note transmission. 

In the next step suppliers are also to be linked to the electronic exchange of signed invoices. Jan C. Wendenburg, Chief Executive Officer of AuthentiDate International AG adds: “we are particularly pleased that SABIC Europe, as a globally active company, has also chosen the AuthentiDate eBilling signature solution. This underlines the international orientation of our products and provides further evidence of their efficiency and compliance in almost all areas of use”.
