The Importance of Electronic Signatures

With the rise of COVID-19 in the previous months, and its extension to today, more organizations are trying to find ways to simplify their processes. Many have looked to electronic signature solutions to continue their legal flow of operation. With advancements in technology, electronic signatures authorize you to remove paper waste while simplifying compliance. By automatically creating crypted documents, your team is given a very strong reason to believe that the message was created by a known sender and was not altered in transit (integrity).

However, court-admissibility is just one of the many benefits to electronic signature implementation. Quicker decision implementation, increased productivity, minimized risks, and secure documentation are all positive outcomes that result from e-signature integration. E-signatures also speed up document turnaround, leaving your team with more time to focus on other projects.


Electronic signature laws like The Uniform Electronic Transactions Act and the Electronic Signature in Global and National Commerce Act have made e-signatures just as compliant and legally binding as wet-ink signatures. Digital signature solutions also integrate additional security features, providing e-signatures with higher security clearance, encryption, and overall reliability. Be sure to never miss a spot to sign by utilizing electronic solutions to take care of all the heavy lifting on your behalf.


Integrated alerts and notifications allow you to be immediately advised of new agreements that need approval and signature. Audit trails allow you to track the status of other agreements simply and readily, saving your most valuable resource: time.


Electronic signatures eliminate the risk of damaging documents. Guarantee maximum control over your workflows, track all edits and adjustments made to documents, reduce late payments, and ensure security with electronic signature functionality. Minimize risks of awaiting document approvals and losing important document information with e-signature solutions.
