Topaz Electronic Signature Pads and MS Word

Topaz Electronic Signature Capture PadsA question I get asked frequently by customers is whether or not our Topaz electronic signature pads (found here) can be used with Microsoft Word 2007 and 2010. I also get asked if the signature is secure and legal. Here are a few answers to these questions.

First of all, Topaz signature capture pads are currently able to work with Microsoft Word versions ’95 through 2007. A plug-in for MS Word 2010 is currently being developed, but is not yet available (***UPDATE*** The plugin is now compatible with MS Word 2010). Plug-ins are included for use with Adobe Acrobat PDFs and Microsoft Excel as well.

The Topaz Word Plug-in ships with our Topaz signature pad. This includes the SigLite and SignatureGem electronic signature pads. Once installed, the plugin allows you to add signature fields to a world document. Once a document has been created, signatures can then be inserted by use of the signature capture pad device.

These signatures are legally binding and secure. If a word document is “re-saved” after the signature is applied, the signature will be erased. Many other safety precautions have been put in place to guarantee the safety and security of signatures.

The suite of tools included with the Topaz Word Plug-In is extremely easy to use and open the door for a variety of applications, custom forms and more.
