John has hit on an important part of the ISO requirements. Quality records must be created and "maintained to demonstrate conformance to specified requirements and the effective operation of the quality system."

Note that there is no statement mandating the use of forms or signatures. Records may be created and maintained without the use of a form, and approvals can be made without the need or use of signatures. The more creative you become, the less paperwork and excessive processes are needed.
