Electronic signature case study - Royal Bank of Canada

This study showed that 8,000 wealth management and investment advisors implemented electronic signatures to finalise mutual fund, GIC and other investment transactions which resulted in a saving of $8 million. This saving translated to shaving 82,000 staff hours which is the equivalent of 41 full-time employees, where they also reduced document errors by 75%.

Some banks have reduced their costs by 85% through mailing and transportation costs while the elimination of manual processes can result in 70-80% improved efficiencies and finally, more than 50% of the non-electronic signature applications require rework due to missing information or an incomplete form. On a final note, some banks which have chosen to introduce electronic signatures on applications forms have experienced a reduced turnaround time from weeks to hours, shipping costs have been reduced by 80% and importantly, error rates have been reduced to less than 5%.
