As a part of our continued commitment to providing the most efficient service for our stakeholders, APHIS has selected enterprise electronic signature solution, e-SignLive™, to digitally streamline processes and eliminate paper within the organization. Created by Silanis Technology, e-SignLive™ is an electronic signature service that allows users to securely send and sign documents. It is a legal and secure way to replace pen and paper, enabling a completely electronic process from start to finish. VS is the first program within APHIS to implement this technology to address the high volume of animals crossing the U.S. borders through the import and export of livestock and the multiple documents and signatures required to process each animal.  VS currently uses the technology for its Veterinary Services Process Streamlining (VSPS) application in the Live Animal Import Module and the Veterinary Export Health Certificate System (VEHCS). The electronic signature technology is used by various staffs throughout the program. VS is already experiencing improved speed of movement for internal and external documents, conducting field transactions, and locating animals and movement by using e-SignLive™.

Our stakeholders, partners and customers don’t need anything more than a web browser to use e-SignLive™ and there is no requirement to create an account to use the service. You will simply receive an email with a link to a secure site, where you will be assigned a personal identification number (PIN). You will then use your PIN to gain access to the e-sign process through the browser that is on your desktop PC, laptop or mobile device. This allows “anywhere, anytime” e-signing from any web-enabled device, including a smartphone, tablet (e.g., iPad) and laptop. With this broad range of options to access or provide information, you will be able to work within the system at any time, not just during business hours.

By selecting and implementing e-SignLive™, VS continues to ensure superior service for stakeholders at all levels of the organization—from headquarters to the field. Look for more information on e-SignLive™ from VS in the future.
