Digital transformation is an ongoing process in many companies in Romania, and the main activities aimed at this transition from paper to digital are those related to the Human Resources department and the relationship with partners and suppliers.
The first and perhaps the most important tool to start this digital transformation is the qualified electronic signature. Any agreement, understanding or partnership, if we are talking about the commercial area, is concluded by a contract that must be signed, and the qualified electronic signature is recognized in all EU Member States, being the only type of signature legally equivalent to the handwritten signature, which is governed by eIDAS Regulation 910/2014.
Areas such as health, finance, banking, insurance, administration, human resources and others took a first step towards the digital transformation of at least some of their work, which was necessary but also useful in many ways.
The advantages of adopting electronic solutions are important, and depending on the specificities of each business, the remote qualified electronic signature via the Paperless solution developed by CERTSIGN, has a stronger echo in certain aspects.
Digital transformation of internal and onboarding
processes in the banking field
In the banking field, the changes began with the onboarding process, which facilitated the client's interaction with the bank exclusively online, even for obtaining loans.
Also, regarding the internal flows, namely of the HR department, which is organized at the headquarters, the interaction of human resources specialists with each employee in the country was almost impossible, and the time of signing the documents was very long. Using the remote qualified electronic signature, the process of hiring and signing all personnel documents is faster and more organized.
Digital transformation of retail and FMCG processes
As for the retail area, we are dealing with a business model with a very large number of suppliers, but also with high fluctuations of personnel and an HR department operating at headquarters.
Paperless comes to support not only this high volume of personnel documents, which once signed automatically reach the electronic archive, but also the management of contracts with suppliers and customers in a much shorter time.
Digital transformation in the utilities field
In the business model of utilities providers, the biggest challenge is to manage a large number of customers, and internally they face a high dynamic of field staff, with some HR tasks being assigned to some officials in the territory.
Utilities providers are quite familiar with digital tools, almost all of them now are issuing electronic invoices, and others are even signing contracts using the electronic signature. The digital transformation of the HR department is just one step away.
