Silanis Technology Inc. will provide the Army with an enterprise license for its digital signature and approval management solution, company officials said.
Officials with the Montreal company would not reveal the terms of the multimillion-dollar contract. The enterprise license was awarded as part of the Forms Content Management Program, the Army's initiative to automate forms-based processes.
The Army already has converted most of its 100,000 form-based processes to digital files that are accessed online.
Without digital signatures, users were unable to push forms from computer to computer. Adding digital signatures and content management solutions now lets the Army fully automate the process.
The Forms Content Management Program combines digital signatures with XML-based e-forms and content management software to create a single infrastructure.
