Digital identity firm, eMudhra has announced its entry to Latin America in the education sector with its flagship Paperless Office Solution – emSigner. The entry caters to curb diploma fraud and completely digitize the diploma issuance process.
With this entry, eMudhra has partnered with Diplogrados Ltda, the leading diploma preparation and printing provider in the region to target over 100 universities in Colombia and surrounding countries. Diplogrados Ltda, prints about 200,000+ diplomas for universities each semester in addition to other documents.
Currently, eMudhra is providing emSigner to one of the largest private sector universities in the region with a strength of 13,000 students and the idea is to issue diplomas to all of them. To meet this requirement, eMudhra has customized its emSigner to the new market, making it available in Spanish with specific technologies built as an add-on to the original platform to minimize diploma frauds in the region.

On this expansion, Arvind Srinivasan, Head of Global Markets, eMudhra Ltd said, “We are in a phase of growth where we are focusing largely on two areas, Digital Transformation and Cybersecurity.

With our secure paperless transformation solution, emSigner, today we are offering e-diplomas to address the key issue of diploma frauds.
