The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has granted Certinal’s e-signature a patent for Systems & Methods for Predicting and Moderating Signature Location Within Electronic Documents

November 3, 2022 – Wilmington, DE: Certinal Inc. announces the US Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO) has granted Certinal e-signature a patent for Systems & Methods for Predicting and Moderating Signature Location Within Electronic Documents.


Electronic documents can be lengthy, with multiple sections and artifacts. It is cumbersome for users to scroll through the entire document to check where signatures should be placed and where users must insert e-signature tags. Certinal’s patented solution solves this with its invention of an AI-driven intelligent application to predict and moderate signature locations in electronic documents and auto-populate signature tags at appropriate locations within the document based on one user command. This patented feature eliminates the need to manually search all over the document, insert a signature tag and then apply the user’s signature.


“Certinal offers the most secure and globally compliant digital signature solutions targeted specifically to leading large enterprises across the world and will continue to deliver by solving complex use cases through our ever-evolving solutions,” said Certinal’s CEO, Aatish Dedhia.” The latest patent granted to Certinal further strengthens our leadership in building cutting-edge, innovative solutions, helps us transform the e-signature application for large global enterprises, and reinforces our commitment and focus on sustained investments in R & D.


Certinal invests almost 50% of company resources towards R&D each year, which is by far the highest in the industry, dedicated explicitly towards Artificial Intelligence based offerings.


The latest patent will power Digital Transaction Management at global organizations in the coming years—now deployed with leading enterprises across the USA, Europe, APAC, and Australia, including Nissan, Graphic Packaging International, JEA, Brookdale Senior Living, Kajima Overseas Asia Pte. Ltd, Insignia Financial ltd., and many more.
