Abstract

This paper describes a real case study of how electronic signature technology can be
applied to job application and applicant‟s background screening process. The case study looks at a
Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) project between Powerchex Ltd, a pre-employment screening
company and the University of East London‟s School of Computing, Information Technology and
Engineering (CITE). The performance is compared with the traditional wet signature process in
Powerchex, a pre-employment screening company based in London. Experiments show efficiency is
significantly improved in Powerchex, in terms of faster turn around and reference request time. Other
benefits include improved customer satisfaction and system usability. The paper also looks at secure
implementations that have been used to protect the signature information.
