What Is E-Signature Software, and Is It Right For Me?
E-signature software gives your clients the ability to sign important documents via internet, with the implementation of certain programs designed to do so. E-signature software has been proven to reduce companies average Quote-to-Cash process time, and allows for secure record keeping that is accessible to business owners easily when required; not to mention saves you money! So instead of having to go through the fuss of meeting in person, mailing out your paperwork, or scanning documents into fax machines and hoping they are returned in a timely manner; you can spend more time focusing on your customer relationships, and make things quicker and easier for the both of you. Unless your business requires an unusually small volume of signed documents, it is doubtful that its contribution would be anything short of beneficial.
How Do I Get Started?
For small businesses that don't require a wide array of information during signing, "Standalone" e-Signature software is off the shelf, easily set up, and has secure cloud-based storage for documents. Each time you need a document signed, you simply have to upload the document to the program, and it will prepare it for online signature.
For medium-to-large businesses that bring in larger volumes of signature requiring documents, considering "integrated" e-Signature software could cut tremendous costs in terms of time and money spent on paper, ink, and postage. While it does take a bit more initial set up time than the standalone version, integrated e-signature software has the ability to be customized to your individual needs. Instead of having to scan in each individual document every time you need a signature, these programs allow you to create, edit, and automatically send out the appropriate documents whenever necessary. This gives you more room to implement branding, and include specific information, as well as gives you more control in terms of analysis and reporting. The best part? Although many programs can be easily integrated into your pre-exisiting accounting software (with some modifications), there are programs that offer many services (such as e-signature software along with many more) in a way that creates an interconnected process within all aspects of your business transactions; so you can spend less time trying to figure out which service you can work with, and get software that works for you.
