Summary Information

Institutions in Nigeria are moving from paper-based to electronic document workflows which increases productivity and reduces costs, but it can also greatly increase the risk of document forgery or tampering and once a school’s secure document is forged, its reputation is also likely damaged.

After all, as with all document security concerns, the weakest link is always the document owner; so, to gain assurance, secure document receivers like credential evaluations organizations and international organizations often send the transcript or certificate back to the issuer for verification which subsequently creates bottlenecks within the entire process.

 

How then does an institution generate transcripts, certificates and statements of results in electronic form in a cost-effective way, that cannot be tampered with, offer a higher assurance of origin and integrity as a wet ink signature provides a physical document; and goes further to allow instant and visual verification of the transcript by the receiver without coming back to the issuer?

 

With our Certified Document Services (CDS), the use of digital certificates to sign secure documents is made possible. A certified document assures the recipient that the document is authentic, comes from a verified source, and that it has not been tampered with.

Generate electronic statements that are secured with digital certificates to give receivers full assurance that you issued it; and that it has not been modified afterwards.
