Government Agencies and Municipalities Should Utilize Electronic Signatures 

Did you know that in the Unites States over 1,300 federal, state, and local government agencies are currently utilizing digital signatures to process applications and electronic forms? They are also using electronic signatures to better manage correspondence. If your department is still doing things the old-fashioned way, meaning signing paper documents with a pen, it is time to catch up with the times. Since the year 2000, when the federal government began recognizing that electronic based signatures are a valid form of expression of assent, both government agencies and local municipalities have benefited from the technology.  

In fact, digital signatures have enabled people to seamlessly conduct business in the fastest and safest manner possible. This holds true even during times of crisis such as the current COVID-19 pandemic where significantly reducing human contact is key. The acceptance of digital signatures has fast become the building blocks for governmental entities to realize a far more overall digital experience. Digital signature technology has provided government agencies and municipalities alike with the ability to scale to meet increasing demands.  

It also makes it possible to save money on costs such as paper, ink, and mail, along with reducing or even eliminating time-consuming tasks such as faxing, scanning, and printing. The bottom line is that electronic signatures provide you with the opportunity to operate in a far more efficient manner. In addition, digital signatures go a long way in helping to improve both efficiency and responsiveness because paper is incredibly time intensive, which of course makes the workflow far more difficult.  

Making an investment in a high-quality digital signature system will help your department to expand responsiveness in a considerable way. This is because a paperless workflow structure increases the operations of government agencies and municipalities. It accomplished this by providing both employees and citizens, who need assistance, with the option to not online review documents online, but to sign them online as well. 

In conclusion, both government agencies and local municipalities are constantly challenged with ways in which they can reduce costs due to constantly shrinking budgets. Implementing a digital signature system is the ideal way to save money in both the short term and the long term. It will also help your department to become even more environmentally friendly.
