The joint press release of Mentana Claimsoft GmbH and 5FSoftware GmbH

5FSoftware will integrate FP Sign into its Collaboration Cloud for tax advisors and auditors. The digital signature of FP Mentana Claimsoft GmbH, a subsidiary of Francotyp-Postalia Holding AG (FP), not only saves clients from having to appear extra personally for their own signature, but also facilitates any workflow whose progress depends on signatures.

FP Sign makes it possible to provide documents with a legally compliant electronic signature – up to the highest available signature level in accordance with the European Signature Ordinance eIDAS, the so-called qualified electronic signature. The spectrum ranges from the signature under business correspondence to the signature for tax returns or audit reports.

Important feature integrated into the cloud platform

For 5FSoftware, this collaboration is an important extension of the range of services. The cloud collaboration platform aims to structure digital collaboration between law firms and clients, to conserve time and resources while meeting the highest security standards. “With the electronic signature, we offer a feature that many tax advisors have previously used as a separate software component or are specifically looking for. The integration into our cloud solution not only expands the scope of services, but also offers a particularly secure solution ‘Made in Germany’, in which documents are processed and stored exclusively in Germany,” explains Stephanie Bogendörfer, Managing Director at 5FSoftware in Regensburg, explaining the decision to partner with FP Mentana Claimsoft GmbH.

Signatures with the highest security standards

The special quality and security feature for users: The FP Sign signature process uses the data centers in Germany certified by the Federal Office for Security in Information Technology (BSI). This excludes data processing in unsafe third countries. This is essential for reliable compliance with the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). FP Sign is also eIDAS compliant and enables the legally required long-term archiving easily, quickly and above all securely.

Improved tenant processes in secure data rooms

“For tax consulting and auditing firms, the cooperation between 5FSoftware and FP Sign represents a further step towards simplifying processes and security in communication with clients,” explains Stephan Vanberg, Managing Director of FP Mentana Claimsoft GmbH.

5FSoftware realizes its package with the integrated legally secure subdivision FP Sign for all professional groups, where discretion and protection of trade secrets in secure data rooms is important. We provide this highly secure solution for tax advisors, accountants, lawyers and notaries.
