How deeply entrenched traditional business practices posing a key challenge?

A long history of working with traditional paper-based business processes is entrenched deeply in the working culture of almost all businesses, who are reluctant to change their working patterns within a short interval. The other major challenges in adopting the digital signature technology across all processes in an organization include lack of trust and ease of implementation, which are otherwise present in convenient business solutions. Traditional business practices need to route the documents, signed by all signatories, with additional suggestions/changes required; this entire process takes a lot of time and effort. Overcoming this deeply entrenched traditional business practice is becoming a hindrance or a challenge in the digital signature market.

Major vendors of digital signature include Adobe (US), OneSpan (US), Gemalto (Netherlands), Ascertia (UK), DocuSign (US), Entrust Datacard (US), SIGNiX (UK), Secured Signing (New Zealand), Identrust (US), RPost Technologies (US), HelloSign (US), MultiCert (Lisbon), GlobalSign (US), RightSignature (US), Zoho Corp (India), and Kofax (US).
