Martyn Best, Managing Director and founder of Document Direct commented, “We were wrestling with the challenge of sending documents for signature digitally and had not found a solution that met our specific needs. Of course we knew about other platforms, but their cost and inflexibility did not meet our needs. Then we met VirtualSignature.

VirtualSignature set up and provided us access to a trial system within hours. Our support team assessed its capabilities and were very impressed. We really liked the look of SmartSign and the platform and how flexible it was. Based on the very positive feedback, we then made the decision to not only use SmartSign for our own use but to also promote it by entering into partnership with VirtualSignature.”  


Martyn, who is also the joint owner of PROGRESS Wrestling added, “We jokingly discussed using the solution for one of our other businesses, PROGRESS Wrestling, and then thought, why not?  Having our wrestlers sign contracts for events is critical.  We decided to provide them the contracts digitally to sign and we’ve found that they have all accepted and adopted use of the technology, in most cases signing on a mobile phone remotely at a time that suits them. The feedback has been excellent as it’s made their lives so much easier.”

David Kern, CEO, VirtualSignature said, “We are delighted to have Document Direct as one of our growing number of partners to promote our UK developed and supported Smart Onboarding platform. The attraction of working with Martyn and the team is about aligning with a like-minded business that values delivering a high level service to clients and collaborating with them to meet customer needs.”


The Smart Onboarding platform offers advanced functionality and capability that is far superior to other available solutions in the market. It enables firms to have a single integrated platform for remote app based document signing, witnessing, Advanced and Qualified ID Verification and other checks that need to be undertaken, such as AML and Source of Funds, all from one UK supplier and at a more affordable price. It comes already integrated with leading systems such as iManage, Visualfiles, Proclaim, Tikit P4W, MS Dynamics, Actionstep and many more.
