Update: November 2018
Digital Transformation is quickly changing the way we work from physical to digital workflows. Every industry and business is being changed by this megatrend and it will rapidly speed up over the next five years. The following article gives you a good overview, the top ideas on how you can use e-Signature cloud and mobile technology in your business, and a list of some easy, fast benefits.
Most companies today still do not use e-Signature technology in their businesses. It's a mistake if your people process a lot of documents that need to be signed each week. There is a huge opportunity to increase productivity, as well as sales and customer success from implementing this one technology. The e-Signature technology solutions range from small to enterprise pricing.
It's time to transform your paper and manual workflows like contracting, on-boarding new employees, terminating workers, human resources, sales invoices, non-disclosure documents, etc.
So right now you create a PDF using a word processor, print it, proof it, make some updates and then email it as an attachment. The company that gets your document will likely print it out, review it, sign it, scan it, then email it back (some people are still even faxing and mailing documents). If it's a rush, you have to pay for FedEx, UPS or Express US Mail.
