Scriptel's patent-pending EasyScript interface was developed to provide developers and IT administrators with an easy way to support electronic signature pad hardware in browser-based applications without needing additional drivers and installed "applets."  By leveraging native OS support for keyboards and having the Scriptel signature pad appear as a USB keyboard, EasyScript enables a "no client install" integration and nearly automatic cross-browser and cross-OS compatibility.

Scriptel's ProScript application programing interface enables developers to create applications that integrate the ScripTouch family of products with rich and dynamic workflows, real-time display of signatures and events, and customizable  device content including rearranging buttons, push graphics, and the ability to customize the devices functionality to fit the users desired workflow. 

ProScript is supported in Microsoft Word and Excel plugins, Adobe Acrobat and Reader plugins, TWAIN and OPOS drivers, ScripTouch Sign and Save signature image and data capture application, OmniScript universal signature integration platform and Windows COM.  There are also extensive APIs and software libraries for ProScript in .NET (C++,VB, C#, and F#), Java and C in support of Mac, Windows, and Linux platforms.
