OVERVIEW

InfoCert for the Education sector

In recent years, the education sector has undergone a profound transformation: new teaching models have been adopted thanks to the latest technologies and distance learning has facilitated interactions and shortened distances, opening up new possibilities for teachers and students.

Digitalisation has also proved to be a strong competitive advantage to support emerging business models and to make operational processes more efficient. In a scenario full of challenges and changes, innovating is thus the only viable choice, in order to thrive while improving the experience of its stakeholders

CHALLENGE

Objective: digitalization of teachers' and students' contracts

One of Italy’s leading Universities in the fields of economics, management, law and social sciences turned to InfoCert to digitise their signature processes.

Always striving for improvement and innovation, the university needed to embark on a digital transformation process that would enable it to digitally identify and sign collaboration contracts for lecturers and internship contracts for students, completely remotely.

The signature process that the university had followed until then involved the use of a large amount of printed paper and the need to scan the identity documents required to recognise signatories.

SOLUTION

Less printed paper, more efficient processes

InfoCert therefore proposed to the client a digital signature process for lecturers’ contracts and students’ internship activities through remote identification and the issuance of an electronic signature. This was possible thanks to TOP, Trusted Onboarding Platform, the InfoCert onboarding solution integrated within the systems in use by the university.

Identification: thanks to the OCR, liveness detection and face matching technologies provided by InfoCert, teachers and students can proceed with identification in SelfID mode, without the support of an operator.

Contract signature: teachers and students have the option of signing the entire dossier through the use of an advanced electronic signature, based on the use of OTPs notified by SMS to the mobile phone number declared by the user during data registration.

The adoption of a remote and digital signature process for the signing of thousands of contracts per year has enabled the university to simplify and speed up back-office activities and, last but not least, to adopt more sustainable processes due to the large amount of printed paper saved.
