10 Compelling Reasons Why You Need Electronic Signatures
Given the current pandemic situation, it has become even more important for companies to switch to digital modes for various approvals and office workflows. Out of the endless list of must-have tools in the face of business disruption, an electronic signature solution has quickly started to become one of the top tools for companies to continue their day-to-day operations without roadblocks.
Here are 10 compelling reasons why you need to integrate your document processes with an eSignature solution:
- Document Security
The Internet has made working online and e-signing documents really easy, while ensuring that the document doesn’t change multiple hands. The application can be configured to ensure that not everyone can make a copy of the document, and ensure that the document reaches the right person only.
Not only the application will have a one-time implementation cost, but you will also save on the cost spent on ink, printers, paper, and the maintenance that goes with it.
These days, all the web applications come with responsive designs, making them easily accessible on various devices like tablets and phones. Thus, letting the end-user quickly access and approve/sign any document on-the-go.
- Faster Turn-around-time
You no longer have to wait for those postal mails to be delivered to your office/home, or wait for that one person to sign the document and return it. The electronic medium and customized workflows will automatically send the documents to the right person.
- Signature Verification
eSignature applications come with a unique functionality where you can get your signature verified. This becomes a one-time activity, making the process simple and intuitive.
- Digital Signatures are Legally Binding
In the United States, the UETA (Uniform Electronic Transactions Act) of 1999 and the ESIGN (Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce) Act of 2000 have made electronic signatures valid and legally binding (with a few exceptions). Most e-signed documents are valid, enforceable, and can be submitted as evidence in court.
- Environment Friendly
By reducing the utilization of paper, ink, and other raw material, you are supporting the environment in making it plastic-free and help reduce the cutting of trees.
- Detailed Legal Record
Since all the documents are available in electronic form, it gets easier to search related documents and helps save time and effort. This is, versus a situation where one has to go through several hard copies of the documents to find any related information.
- Delivering Better Customer Experience
One of the hallmarks of a good application is making sure your customers get the best user experience. With a simple and easy-to-use interface, you get a holistic package that ticks all the right boxes while providing a pain-free experience and enabling quick response.
- Contactless experience
Given the current times, an electronic signature application will help facilitate your efforts towards making your processes more contactless. Thus, safeguarding the health interests of your employees as well as your customers’.
