By Joan Honig, DocuWare – What’s more frustrating than delay caused by waiting for a document with an ink-to-paper signature to be signed and returned? You don’t know how long it’s going to take to get the signed copy back. Once the signed document is received, it may be scanned and filed both in paper and digital form which slows the process down even more. e-Signatures shortcut the process of signing proposals and sales contracts, employee benefits forms, vendor agreements, and other documents that require a verified signature for audit and compliance purposes.
The pandemic changed the nature of doing business. Meeting in-person to get a signature is next to impossible but mailing documents back-and-forth is time-consuming and inefficient. This has increased the importance of conducting remote transactions quickly and securely. e-Signature technology can be an asset to every company and the business case for adopting it has never been more compelling.
