Tremend, one of the fastest-growing technology companies in Europe, and CertSIGN, Qualified Trust Service Provider, have entered into a strategic partnership to digitize customer-company interaction by integrating identification flow and remote qualified electronic signature within TORP’s digital onboarding platform.
TORP is the first solution in Romania that has implemented a video-assisted remote customer identification flow – eKYC (Electronic Know Your Customer), process audited and certified by the French company LSTI in the context of issuing qualified certificates. Thus, compliance with national regulations and the European legislation on electronic identification and trusted services for electronic transactions is guaranteed.
User identification runs through a real-time video stream, with the same level of technical security and legal compliance as face-to-face recognition, following all global directives: AML5 (Anti-Money Laundering), GDPR and SCA (Strong Customer Authentication).
TORP integrates the Paperless remote electronic signature solution, developed by CertSIGN. Through this, video-identified users have 100% digital access to an organization’s business processes. The CertSIGN Paperless remote electronic signature is also eIDAS compliant, legal, token-free, and can be used without installing special drivers. It can be accessed from any device, anywhere, anytime, ensuring secure data processing and storage and a high degree of protection against cyber-attacks.
The partnership between Tremend and CertSIGN introduces an ecosystem that fixes and ensures compliance with national and European legislation. At the same time, it creates a complete processes’ organization digitization, eliminating conventional authentication methods and document signing.
Thus, it is no longer necessary for the user to go to the physical branch to sign contracts, approve internal procedures, request a leave of absence, or perform any other digital procedures. The entire flow is in line with eIDAS regulation, which means it is compliant with European Union regulations on electronic identification and trust services for electronic transactions.
