Finnish Avaintec and Thai Privy Partner entered into collaboration in September 2023. The cooperation enables Avaintec’s SignHero to offer electronic signing services in the Southeast Asian region (Brunei, Burma (Myanmar), Cambodia, Timor-Leste, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam). The rapid digitisation of Southeast Asia opens up a number of opportunities for its residents and businesses.
SignHero is a fast and easy electronic signing service developed by the Finnish software company Avaintec. SignHero was launched in 2017 and has grown into an international service that is currently available in eight languages in dozens of countries. SignHero's strengths are its ease of use, internationality and a very competitive price.
SignHero's new collaborator Privy Partner is initially established as a business management consulting Thai company, founded since 2005, that provided C-Level management consultancy services in the key areas of strategic business management (both tactical & operational level), internationalising business development and establishment, business networking management for localisation, and, now, the business consulting and digital service provider for Personal Data Privacy Management, Data Protection as-a Service, and Digital Transformation to help business and government units to cope with digital works sustainability without compromising their business growth.
Through the collaboration, SignHero will be able to participate in the digitisation of the area. More and more companies around the world are modifying their operations to adapt to the digital international world and, with that, adopt new ways of working and utilising new technologies to enable that development.
Southeast Asian operators have already benefited from digitisation through improved operational efficiency, improved sales processes and customer experience, as well as improved productivity. New technologies allow communication in an unprecedented way and give time for businesses to focus on their core competencies.
Pekka Kuosmanen, CEO of Avaintec says:
Countries in Southeast Asia are digitising at a rapid pace. In Thailand, for example, a law came into force in June that obliges authorities to digitise their services. Electronic signatures are an integral part of digitised processes.
The agreement and cooperation with Privy Partner opens up a great potential for SignHero to become a key supplier of electronic signatures in the Southeast Asian market.
Wanawit Ahkuputra, Founder and Principal Partner of Privy Partner says:
Finnish technology in digital signature is characterised by its security, innovation, and adherence to European standards. Avaintec had a long history working toward the integration of the localisation of Thai language that is the primary critical success factor of ensuring the integrity and authenticity of digital signature in the local context of this region.
