Electronic signature

Digital transformation is a central component of Phoenix Contact's strategic focus.

Phoenix Contact uses a digital platform that allows documents to be signed electronically. This makes it possible to quickly and securely sign contracts or other agreements electronically. It's also very easy for our business partners to countersign agreements quickly in the same media format, yet still securely and at no extra cost to them.
