For instance, the U.S. government has implemented paperwork elimination act under which, the government is encouraging the enterprises for electronic and digital signature alternatives. According to the act, the electronic records and their related digital signatures are not to be denied validity, legal effect, or enforceability simply, because they are in electronic or digital form. As public awareness of electronic communications and internet usage has been increasing, the demand for online interactions with the federal agencies has also surged. The federal government also encourages the widespread usage of cryptographically-based digital signatures. The U.S. being the largest digital signature market globally, the implementation of such act is driving the demand of digital signatures.

Further, banking and insurance companies are also adopting digital signature for cost & time saving. The banking & insurance organizations records the customer signature into digital form, which would help in monitoring, time and cost saving, and expertise in delivering the services.

Through the authentication of digital signatures by healthcare professionals, paper-based prescriptions can be digitally transferred from the doctor to hospital’s server, and then to patient's pharmacy, thus inhibiting a person’s ability to manipulate or forge the doctor’s prescription. Pharmacists have an online copy for the comparison of a patient’s digitized prescriptions, for the better healthcare services.
