The automotive sector has proved to be open and welcoming with regard to the digital transformation. Increasingly more online solutions are being used which boost sales considerably. Moreover, the number of digital applications that are controlled via the car is constantly on the rise.


Your customers are becoming more and more web and mobile-savvy. In many areas of life products and services are now being offered online. Mobiles play an increasingly leading role. The car sector is no exception, where this area is showing an upward trend. Increasingly more manufacturers offer their customers different online features in their car; whether they use all their smartphone functions via loudspeaker, for example, and are able to control these using the controls in the car or they buy their car online.

When buying or leasing, the contracts have to feature a handwritten signature. If this procedure is displayed online, with IDnow eSign you achieve the same legal security. By using it, your customers are identified and are then directly taken to the contract conclusion using a qualified electronic signature (QES).
