Electronic signatures have seen an incredible rise in interest in recent years and an ever-growing number of businesses are now using them as a tool to cut down on paper usage and streamline a multitude of different work processes.
If you’re still using hard copies or sending PDF’s via email, you could be costing your business money. In the time it takes a recipient to print a form, manually fill it out, and send it back, you’ve already lost a good 30-45 minutes (per signer), and that’s if they completed it immediately! More often than not, each signer takes days or weeks to complete a document.
The reality is that processes often get stuck when people don’t respond quickly enough. By eliminating the scenario above, your business can speed up its processes.
This question comes up a lot and the the answer is always, a lot more than you think. The truth is, you can use e-signatures to sign anything from debit orders to leases agreements and from Section 14 Retirement Annuity fee renewal forms to employee contracts.

This got me thinking about first impressions and how important they can be for all aspects of life and especially in business.
