PostFinance is the first Swiss bank to launch a proof of identity solution for the qualified electronic signing of documents. Thanks to the “Bankident PostFinance” service, customers can provide a qualified electronic signature on contracts easily, quickly and without media disruption via the PostFinance App. The new service is now available in cooperation with Swisscom Trust Services. In the course of the year, “Bankident PostFinance” will also be available in conjunction with SwissSign, Swiss Post’s data security specialist. PostFinance, Swiss Post and Swisscom are jointly driving forward the digitization of Switzerland with this signature solution.
Standard identification procedures, which involve visiting a branch or making a video call, are time-consuming for customers and dependent on opening hours. This can result in lengthy delays before a third-party provider contract, such as a mobile phone or leasing contract, is signed. But with “Bankident PostFinance”, they can be signed immediately. The qualified electronic signature can be provided easily, quickly and without media disruption via the PostFinance App. To use “Bankident PostFinance”, customers don’t need to download an additional app or provide identification in person on site. Access to e-finance is all that’s required to use the PostFinance App.
