Company History

Topaz Systems and the eSign Ecosystem

Founded in 1995, Topaz Systems provides electronic signature solutions for digital documents, including complete software, tools, intellectual property, robust hardware pads, and lifetime support.  Topaz® facilitates the “eSign Ecosystem®”, bringing together the widest range of integrated technology, intellectual property, distribution, reseller, technical support, service, and ISV 3rd-party application elements in the industry by a wide margin.  Customers thereby gain the benefits of network effects, making your products, software, and services easier to deploy, update, and support, and more successful and profitable overall.


Topaz provides electronic signature solutions for wherever business takes you®. Our customers drastically reduce cost and improve service levels and productivity by bringing signed documents into the digital era. Our captured signatures provide compatibility with the existing legal system and court framework, having passed the Daubert standard in United States Federal Court.


Topaz provides reliable, patented techniques of secure capture, linkage, and visual signature comparison using biometric cues and analysis, including the use of paper exemplars for authentication. Our IP, patent, and product portfolios are the broadest in the industry. We also provide free, unlimited support to ISVs, SIs, and developers for integration into their broader enterprise framework.


With annual sales in excess of $50 million, Topaz is financially sound and debt-free. Since we are privately-and closely-held, Topaz can direct our attention solely to our customers and their needs rather than being pulled each quarter by the winds of change and the demands of the stock market. Companies and individuals that rely on our promises include hundreds of thousands of individual end-users and thousands of corporations of all sizes, many of which are household-name companies. Furthermore, all Topaz products are designed and manufactured in the United States of America.
