ST. LOUIS, MO, AUGUST 20, 2007 – “Computime has had repeated success selling into WIC applications,” says Ron Brandon, Manager of Business Development for Computime. “Pennsylvania, New York, and Oklahoma are just a few of the WIC projects that have taken advantage of Topaz technology and the time and money savings involved with the use of electronic signatures.”

As nationwide WIC program participation surged in recent years, many agencies found themselves floundering in a virtual sea of signed paper documents. Traditional methods of processing these documents proved to be costly and inefficient, creating a vacuum of resources and perpetuating fraud issues. In response, many top software companies recognized the need for paperless automation and have recently implemented Topaz devices for the capture, storage, and authentication of forensic-quality eSignatures within their paperless WIC software solutions. “Utilizing this technology has assisted us in reaching our goal of a paperless clinic environment,” says Michael E. Carnley, Programmer/Analyst for the Alabama Department of Health. “By integrating Topaz electronic signature capture devices, we will have the means for participants and staff to use an inkless pen to electronically sign and apply their signatures to an electronic document.”
Through new partnerships with companies such as Ciber, Inc., who pioneered the paperless WIC solution movement with the introduction of QuickWIC in 2002, and Covansys, whose SpiritWIC system is the only automated WIC solution to provide a full spectrum of services and support, Computime has been able to provide Topaz Systems electronic signature capture devices to more than one quarter of the nation’s WIC agencies. These agencies are now able to spend less time and money managing paper documents and focus more on the things that really matter, such as interaction with employees and attention to WIC participants.
