BlueCielo Meridian Enterprise with the FDA Module provides the ability to configure documents and workflow transitions that require electronic signatures from authorized users. The user is prompted for the required username and password, and the action is logged to the application's audit trail. Users can also delegate the signing task to other authorized users. Invalid signing attempts are logged to the audit trail and the system administrator is subsequently notified.
Document status is automatically tracked as well as signature approvals. Upon a successful signing, the appropriate metadata is updated, and the signature information, including the user's full name, current date and time, and reason for the signature are embedded within a PDF rendition of the document (through use of the BlueCielo Publisher).
Additionally, a signature page can be configured with the same information.
