San Francisco Landing Pad to provide a springboard for US expansion
Sydney, Australia- May 1st, 2018– Sydney-based technology company, VideoSign, is pleased to announce that it has been chosen to participate in the Australian Government’s San Francisco Landing Pad, alongside nine other cutting edge Australian companies.
VideoSign’s Chief Executive Officer, Ian Dunbar, will take up residency at WeWork, located in the San Francisco financial district as part of immersion in the Landing Pad atmosphere. The neighbourhood is peppered with startups, technology investors and established companies, all of which combine to provide a rich environment of skills and talent for Australian companies to create expansion opportunities. WeWork’s alumnae include Airbnb, Dropbox, Reddit, General Electric, Microsoft, Red Bull, Honda, and General Motors.
VideoSign was chosen because of its unique in-person virtual meeting business application that enables real-time digital signing within the meeting, automatic creation of an audit document that is appended to the meeting recording, video proof of the signer added to each signature, and a video recording file capturing all elements of the meeting.
With the ethical proof of professional advice under scrutiny globally, regulators increasingly require that any advice given to a client must be recorded and stored for evidence of purchase intent and understanding by the consumer. VideoSign enables an entire transaction to be completed in one meeting with multiple signatures collected in real time from the parties in the meeting regardless of where they are geographically located and records every interaction, spoken word, and non-verbal body cue during the entire meeting.
“We are honored to be recognised by Austrade and are excited to be able to benefit from the Landing Pad programme as the springboard to our US market expansion. The start-up expertise from the Landing Pad will expedite the global adoption plans of VideoSign. This is about enabling an Australian start-up to be successful in the global economy. Success globally means that jobs and revenue are created back home in Australia”, said Dunbar.
