Signing with BankID simplifies the day-to-day work of the boards of 1,500 housing cooperatives, and means time and money saved for the cooperative building association OBOS.
‘Half of our housing companies now use digital signing with BankID. This has simplified the day-to-day work of the boards and saved a great deal of time and money for OBOS,’ says Anders Brunland, Manager of Web and Integration at OBOS. OBOS assists nearly 3,000 housing companies with nearly all of the practical tasks related to management and administrative work. Norway’s largest housing company has focused on digitalisation for a long time, and has given boards and elected officers the option of using electronic signatures for several years.
A total of 1,349 of our housing companies are now using the digital signing option. This represents almost 50% of our housing companiesv.
Through OBOS’s own board portal, the elected officers can sign board minutes and other important documents using BankID. ‘We save both time and money by doing this electronically. Normally, it can take a week or two to get the papers sent, signed by all of the board members, returned, scanned and then sent on to the Brønnøysund Register Centre. In other words, a lot of work now made a lot easier.’
