How do I track and archive my documents?

How do I track and archive my documents?

You can use a tracking table to monitor the progress of the documents you have sent out for signature in the selected period.

The sort and filter functions allow you to quickly follow up with signatories who are late in signing the document, or revoke the process if there has been a mistake.

Once they are signed, your documents will be automatically archived in your secure Kelio storage space, where you can sort and download them.

A proof file allows you to certify the authenticity of the document and its signatory.

Simple, practical, adapted pricing

Kelio makes your life easier by creating a unique cost for your signature process with an “all-inclusive” package:

  • The signatory’s signature
  • Delivery of the email or text message containing the unique code required to authenticate and confirm the signature
  • Your manager’s company signature (company as a legal entity/natural person)*
  • Link sent by email to all signatories for downloading the document once it has been signed
  • Receipt and saving of the signed document for the organisation on your Kelio server in a secure space 

* Kelio makes your company signature process (server cache) easier by displaying a validation screen before the documents are sent out for signature. This also allows you to electronically add the company’s authorisation using a “permanent” certificate (long-term certificate not restricted to single use of signature).

Your “signature book” will also be digitalised, allowing you to avoid mistakes before sending out documents and, more importantly, to add your legally recognised company signature to all your HR documents.

What is the legal status of electronic signatures?

What is the legal status of electronic signatures?

Once it has been validated by a certification authority, an electronic signature has the same probative value as a hand-written signature.

When used in digital documents, electronic signatures allow you to verify:

  • The identity of the signatory (clearly and easily)
  • The integrity of the signed document (no changes made after signing)
  • The non-repudiation of the signed document by the signatory (signatory cannot deny that they signed the document)
