Sign The Dotted Line: Why E-Signatures Are Your New Holy Grail
The process of printing, sending, signing, receiving, and filing various contracts and documents is a relentless task that can bog down a business. The traditional method of contract signings is tedious, and there’s a good chance it’s costing you more time and money than necessary. If you haven’t made the switch to using electronic signatures yet, we’re here to tell you why you should.
1. Turnaround Time
When you take the time to look at the process of a contract signing in full, you’ll see just how much time and effort goes in to completing a document, especially when multiple parties are involved. It takes time to send the documents to one party, have them send it back with their signatures, send it on to the next party, etcetera, etcetera.
With Shape’s integrated eSignature Solutions, your pre-mapped eSignature documents can be sent via SMS message or email in record time. Once you have that contract fully signed and in hand, the billing process can begin. Get paid faster with minimal effort. No more passing around the baton of contracts - let the power of technology take control!
Electronic signatures simplify the contract signing process. With Shape Software, you are able to pre-map your eSignature documents with simple drag and drop tags, so that your client’s information pre-populates into the contract. Move through your workflow without stopping to create individual contracts for each and every client. Instead, just preview to make sure you have the correct information in the pre-mapped tag areas and choose your send method: SMS message or email.
Not only is the process more efficient on your end, it’s simpler and more accessible for the client as well. Now you can simply email or text the document to be signed and, without having to print, sign, and scan all over again, the customer can simply open the file, sign online, and the completed document is automatically delivered to you through the system with IP and status tracking. Now that was easy!
3. Money Savings
Trust us when we say, electronic signatures are guaranteed to save you money. For starters, you no longer have to worry about printing fees. Worried about those 48 page documents that eat up an entire ink cartridge? With Shape’s electronic signatures, you don’t have to print another page because the files are stored directly on your customer’s profile page. Say goodbye to postage and mailing costs as well, because no contract will ever need to be shipped to a client again. On top of that, you save a tremendous amount of time by automating your contracts, and time is money. Over time, these smaller costs can add up, and finding ways to save anywhere in a business is always a bonus.
