It’s a tale of two very different places with e-signature software provider E-Sign securing new client wins in Palestine and Yorkshire.
Liverpool-based E-Sign reveals that it has signed a contract with the Palestinian Ministry of Telecommunications and IT, and bagged a deal with Yorkshire-based environmental consultancy Comply Direct.
In terms of the Palestinian deal, E-Sign will help the Digital West Bank and Gaza project. The public signing ceremony took place at the Palestinian Parliament, where E-Sign representatives met the Palestinian Prime Minister and other stakeholders, to officially launch the project.
Funded by the World Bank, the idea is to give Palestinian citizens digital infrastructure and access to digital services, and help with education, health, agriculture and governmental services.
E-sign will take on three areas of work – legal and regulatory, emergency response and citizen-based digital services. This includes e-signature legal frameworks, certification authority, cybersecurity, GDPR user access and data, and a move into telecommunications.

The tech company notes: “Ultimately, this will enable the creation of a strong digital economy, contribute to reduction of poverty and the improvement of everyday life for Palestinians.”
In terms of Comply Direct, the consultancy is changing its digital infrastructure, building in E-Sign’s enterprise solution as a part of its customer process and for automation of documentation management. Bespoke agreements that E-Sign will be delivering include both voluntary and mandatory schemes across carbon management, environmental and social governance (ESG), and packaging compliance.
Tom Beckwith, Comply Direct’s Senior Systems Developer, explains: “E-Sign offered us a world-class solution, backed up by their ten years’ experience, giving us the confidence they could execute securely.”
On top of all that happy news, E-Sign points out that it has been granted ‘preferred supplier status’ by the University of Oxford for the provision of digital automation services. The academic institution already uses E-Sign’s solution across a variety of departments including clinical trials, housing, property, mental health and psychology.
E-Sign has plenty of other notable clients. Names listed on its website include the NHS, Armani, NFU Mutual and councils in Sheffield, Cambridgeshire, Peterborough and Somerset.
