Central Denmark Region is saving on working hours and administration time with SmartSignatur
â€œThe best thing about SmartSignatur is the flexibility it lets us build into our systems,â€ says Henrik Jordt, head of Central Denmark Regionâ€™s IT Development, Architecture, and Design.
In Central Denmark Region, about 11,300 employees use SmartSignatur when they log on with NemID Employee Signature.
The process is so simple that employees donâ€™t even notice they are using SmartSignatur. But SmartSignaturâ€™s smooth process means that the region saves on both working hours and resources.
Issued with no waiting period
The previous procedure for NemID Employee Signature required a digital order, and then a wait of a couple of days before the signature was delivered in the post, says Jordt. But SmartSignatur is much faster, so that the employee can get started right away:
â€œWe can do it in a few hours. As soon as the order is approved by the service desk here in the region, the employee gets an email with a link where they can activate SmartSignatur with their personal NemID â€“ and theyâ€™re ready to go. And if theyâ€™re one of the few people without a personal NemID, they can get a PIN at the service desk,â€ Jordt says.
Automatically annulled when the employee leaves
When the employee is no longer entitled to a digital signature, the process is even simpler. â€œWhen the employee leaves his or her position, the SmartSignatur is automatically annulled,â€ Jort explains.
Easy for employees
â€œAs an employee you wonâ€™t even necessarily know that you are using SmartSignatur. You long on to your PC and type in your usual password. You can do that from any one of the regionâ€™s PCs, wherever youâ€™re sitting,â€ says Jordt, and adds: â€œYou also donâ€™t have to sit and wait 15 seconds for a log-in box to show up on the screen.â€
Time is money
He doesnâ€™t have figures on how many hours â€“ and how much money â€“ the region has saved since it began to use SmartSignatur in 2005.
â€œWe havenâ€™t calculated it, but we have saved a lot of administration hours. We have also saved a lot of employee time. And we have saved money since the administration of the digital signature is built into the IT system we use for access management,â€ says Jordt.
SmartSignatur helps employees helps employees confirm their identity digitally. SmartSignatur makes it easy for people who need to identify themselves â€“ and secure for the organization that requires the identification. SmartSignatur issues and automatically maintains digital employee signatures.
