    I will go through your list of requirements in order.

    - Web service to DB (Fetch info from OMS/TC) located in a corporate LAN (On Premise) via API

    It is not currently possible to query a DB to populate the form with the exception of using the form source code and inserting the queries directly:

    https://www.jotform.com/help/104-How-to-get-the-Full-Source-Code-of-your-Form

    - Signature field. Either time stamp upon typing employee ID or graphical signing field (can be used by tablets)

    We offer several different signature widgets:

    https://widgets.jotform.com/search/signature

    - Be accessible by multiple users (Per item)

    Forms can be filled out by many users concurrently. 

    - Supports repeating sections

    We offer widgets like our configurable list which allow users to add extra sets of specific fields if needed:

    https://widgets.jotform.com/widget/configurable_list

    Or multiple sets of fields could be created and then shown conditionally:

    - Role based permissions

    We do not offer role based permissions but access to specific forms and/or data can be shared with other accounts:

    https://www.jotform.com/help/232-How-to-Share-Forms-with-a-Sub-Account-User

    - Supported multi platform (Laptops, Tablets,Mobile devices)

    Forms are usable on nearly any device and browser.

    - Robust validations both by field value or role

    Several different validation are available including input type, fill requirements and others.  Form cannot validate log ins so role based validation on form input would not be possible.

    - Ability to send notifications and reminders for stake holders

    Notification emails can be sent to specific addresses:

    https://www.jotform.com/help/25-Setting-up-Email-Notifications

    Autoresponders can be sent to users filling out the form:

    https://www.jotform.com/help/26-Setting-up-an-Autoresponder-Email

    - Able to present data in Dashboards and KPI (advantage)

    Data can be presented using several types of reports:

    - Connect to AD (advantage)

    Forms are completed from their publicly available URL's.  There is not SSO authentication for accessing forms.

    - Support SSO (advantage)
