In today’s world of digital forms, having to print out and sign documents can be tedious and time-consuming. This time is spent formatting a document for your word processing software, printing it out, signing it, scanning it into your computer, reformatting it, and then (finally) sending it off. For simple forms, this is a waste of effort, which is why you should look into using an e-signature application.
When you are considering an e-signature app there are certain aspects you need to consider. You might want to investigate scheduled signing, which can help with time-constrained documents, or you might prefer to have an e-signature app that integrates a CRM (customer relationship management) tool to keep everything streamlined.
