ReporterBase Digital Signature Proxy
ReporterBase Digital Signature Proxy (RB-DSP) lets agencies apply reporters’ digital signatures to their RB-PDF Transcripts through the normal production process. RB-DSP is a free and easy way to apply digital signatures to electronic transcripts efficiently in-house while maintaining the integrity of the signature.
- It is automatic. A court reporting firm’s production department does not need to know reporters’ personal information, such as user IDs and passwords, to apply their signatures.
- It is quick. Applying a signature is a two-click process — production staffers do not need to go to a third-party website or application, it is all within RB9’s PDF Transcripts function.
- It is accurate. Production staff does not choose a reporter’s signature for a transcript; the correct signature is already tied to the transcript based on who turned in the job.
- It is monitored. Anytime a signature is applied via RB-DSP, it is automatically logged in both the reporter’s and the agency’s usage log. Usage logs track when a signature was used, on which transcript and by which agency. Reporters can also choose to be automatically notified by email anytime their signature is used.
Reporters and agencies sign up to use RB-DSP on reporterbase.com. They set up their free digital signatures on the site, and reporters choose which agencies can apply their signatures to their transcripts. Reporters can monitor which agency applied their signature to which transcript and when through the site.
NOTE: RB-DSP is for RB9 only. It does not work with RB Lite.
TL;DR: Free digital signatures for reporters and agencies that agencies apply to RB-PDF Transcripts. Reporters retain control of their signatures while agencies are able to apply the signatures through their normal production process.
