Using electronic signature software eliminates geographical barriers to getting documents completed, but it also attracts the digital natives to use your service. Customer convenience and ease of use are instrumental to high conversion rates. Sending documents to your clients so they can complete using online and mobile channels captures consent there and then, with no risk of delays.

Fast and convenient transactions

Electronic signatures improve business processes by speeding them up. The days of signing contracts by hand are slowly becoming a thing of the past, because customers want to be able to get things done whilst on the move using mobile devices. In a recent study, the document turnaround time reduced by up to 80% when compared with traditional postage means.
