The days when signing a contract meant printing it, signing and scanning it back in are over. We, for one, are thankful for that! Digital signature platforms have transformed the way we do business and are good news for the environment too.
Scanner-less digital signing
To digitally sign a document, you do not need a scanner. Documents are sent via secure links, allowing them to be signed without the need to print, sign, scan and reupload. Using these secure links, signers can digitally fill out any required fields and sign where necessary. With no printing or scanning required, documents can be signed in a matter of seconds. As a result, it saves all parties significant time and money.
Saving you time and effort
Whether you are sending an employment contract or a Service Agreement, digital signing platforms make this process super easy. Templates automate much of the process, so you are not wasting time typing repetitive fields. Doc2 can pull information directly from Companies House and also offers features like version control. This ensures your employees are always using the most up to date version of your templates. There is also the option to download your file in a range of formats, including PDF and Word, making it simple to open documents with your existing programs.
Digital signing platforms, including Doc2, allow you to access your contracts and other documents from mobile devices. This makes it easier and more convenient to sign documents on the go or send contracts for signing when you are out of the office.
The move to digital signatures
Some organisations have been slow to move to digital signatures. However, provided that you choose a reputable eSigning platform (see Doc2’s TrustPilot reviews), there is no need to worry as your documents are safe and secure. In addition, you will always retain a digital copy of your most important documents – they cannot be destroyed by fire, flood, termites or natural disasters. This means that moving to digital contracts is a fantastic way to ensure security for your most sensitive documents.
Transforming your business
It is fair to say eSigning platforms have changed the way we do business. Making contract creation and signing easy for your customers will only improve your business relationships.
You will save time and money, whilst helping the environment by eliminating your need for paper. In addition to all of this, your documents will be safely stored in the cloud.
Whichever industry you are in, contract automation can streamline your business and help you stay on top of your paperwork. Why not make this the year you go digital? Get in touch with the Doc2 team and sign up for a free trial of Doc2 today.
