E-Signatures: The Impact on Workplace Productivity

Pooja Patil

The quest for workplace productivity and efficiency has always been a hot topic. Post-pandemic, this also posed a significant challenge for companies as work became remote and employees stopped coming into offices daily. Given the circumstances, maintaining productivity and efficiency became a challenge for every department head. Without a doubt, it was digitization and the fast adaptation to it that saved many a business.

With the ever-changing market scenarios and snowballing uncertainty, digitization has become the norm. As a result of digitization, many organizations have significantly improved core business functions through innovative technologies and solutions. And one of the core drivers behind these transformations is the desire for a more efficient, productive, and cost-effective workplace.

Out of the numerous ways one can leverage digitization and modern technologies to improve productivity, one of them is to embrace electronic signatures. E-signatures have been a savior for many businesses, streamlining their processes and augmenting the pace of document signing even in remote working environments. In addition, esignatures bring myriad benefits to companies that essentially help reduce the burden of employees and elevate customer experience. In the case of employees, the more satisfied and happy they feel about their work, the more efficient and productive they will be.

DrySign, our comprehensive digital signature solution, can transform businesses from the very second they are integrated into a workflow. Moreover, with competitive plan prices and unbeatable features, DrySign is a choice made by many businesses wanting to tread the digital path. Before we tell you more about DrySign, here are 5 ways e-signatures can help improve your workplace productivity.

5 Ways eSignatures can improve your workplace productivity

  1. Streamlined operations

    Almost every business, irrespective of size, deals with high volumes of documentation. Right from hiring new employees to creating invoices, leases or other legal agreements, business contracts, budget proposals, sales agreements, and so on – there is no way a business can run without documentation. In addition, most organizations have different signing hierarchies through which the document must pass. Imagine if any one person in that hierarchical structure is on leave or traveling; the delays in the signing process can extend to days or even weeks.

    Introducing electronic signatures in your organizational workflows helps streamline operations. Irrespective of your location or time, you can sign any document in just minutes from anywhere in the world. You won’t have to wait weeks to get a document signed, thereby expediting your processes and business growth.

  1. Lower costs

    We all know that documentation is an integral part of businesses. And thus, documentation costs can be the most substantial ones. Imagine if you could eliminate all of the costs associated with manual paperwork. Well, it is now possible with the help of eSignatures.

    Going paperless helps save on printing, deliveries, fuel, paper, scanning, and much more. These costs may seem insignificant, but considering the considerable amounts, saving on these costs can positively impact your bottom line. With DrySign, you can sign on the go without worrying about additional costs. All you need is a device, DrySign, and an internet connection to sign documents anytime and anywhere.

  1. Legal compliance

    No matter what industry you are working in, legal compliance is always a top priority for business owners. There are different state and country laws and litigations applicable to various industries. And business must comply with them to thrive in the modern business world.

    Electronic signatures are legal and comply with specific laws that ensure the legitimacy of documents. For example, DrySign, one of the leading online signature solutions, complies with international e-signature laws such as the E-SIGN Act and UETA (USA), the IT Act of 2000 (India), and Sec. 5 (e) Electronic Commerce Act (Republic Act No. 8792) (Philippines).

  1. Transparency in documentation

    Using traditional methods of signing and storing paper documents makes it challenging to retrieve and review them. Another significant challenge is to ensure the security and legitimacy of these documents. Moreover, once sent for approval or collection of more signatures, it could take days or weeks, eventually slowing down business growth. On the other hand, embracing a digital signature solution provides not only complete transparency in your documentation but also ensures swift document delivery and instant and secure online signing.

    DrySign provides a wide range of features that allow users to invite one or more signatories to sign a document, keep track of the signing, and send notifications or reminders whenever required. With DrySign, you don't have to worry about getting a document signed on time or maintaining a record for future reference – all of this can be seamlessly done through the DrySign platform. In addition, real-time mail trails enable you to track your document signing status anytime. In a nutshell, you can take complete charge of your documents.

  1. Environment friendly

    Do you know how severely paper consumption or traditional wet signatures can hurt our environment? It isn't just about paper and pen; it is about fuel, maintenance, transport, and many more things. For instance, burning just one gallon of gasoline emits 8,887 grams of CO2, and just one gallon of diesel emits 10,180 grams of CO2. On top of that, the average passenger vehicle emits around 404 grams of CO2 per mile.

    If your organization still uses traditional wet signatures, you are an active contributor to this buffet of greenhouse gases. These are responsible for climate change, droughts, wildfires, extreme weather conditions, and more. On the other hand, if you have already adopted an eSignature solution, you are contributing to saving our planet by going green and significantly reducing your carbon footprint.
