Kofax, a financial technology company in Irvine, Calif., on Thursday released a product that allows lenders to capture and process electronic signatures.

The software, known as SignDoc Enterprise, gives consumers the ability to sign and return documents from desktop or mobile devices. The software supports several platforms, including Windows, Linux and mobile systems and could be used for loan or account opening documents.

"Digital transaction management is an emerging market category that defines a new way to conduct business," said Grant Johnson, Kofax's chief marketing officer, in a press release Thursday.

The announcement comes just four months after the company purchased purchased Softpro GmbH, a Boeblingen, Germany-based provider of electronic signature technology.
