I

Partners can soon offer eSignature, a digital solution for digitizing agreements and legally-binding documents.

From contracts and offer letters to account openings and invoices, agreements are critical in business workflows for businesses of all sizes. With eSignature, businesses have the ability process agreements in minutes online.

With a major acceleration of remote working and cloud adoption, electronic signature adoption has seen related growth and adoption. According to Gartner:

  • The dramatic global increase in remote work has increased the need for business-accessible electronic signatures for a variety of use cases, both internal and external (customer, partner or vendor).
  • Organizations that had not converted paper processes to digital workflow prior to the pandemic are the most likely to turn to workflow-focused electronic signature solutions to fill the gap in their digital business capabilities for policy-driven use cases. Many of these use cases would previously not have been candidates for electronic signatures, but they do require the capture and storage of consent or agreement.
