E-signature is expected to reduce paperwork, bureaucracy and fraud

“E-signature, or digital signature, is a concept that allows for using
electronically signed documents to perform either exchange of documents
officially in circles related to government, or with the private sector
performing electronic commerce or electronic business at large,” says
Sherif Hashim, vice president of the Information Technology Industry
Development Agency (ITIDA). “With this need emerging, technology
stepped in to introduce technologies related to authenticated
signatures on documents.”
