eSignature Market Trends

Over 90% of businesses are in the midst of digital transformation—that is, the evolution toward much more data-driven business models that require an end-to-end digitization of all document processes. As companies move through digital transformation, eSignatures are now the norm and a critical tool for day-to-day operations, regardless of business size and complexity of document processes.

With P&S Intelligence forecasting a 29% CAGR global increase in spending on eSignature solutions in the next decade, GigaOm analysts are confirming this growth trend across all industries for core eSignature capabilities. An easy one to spot, considering the benefits organizations can realize from adopting electronic signatures are many—greater efficiency, better user experiences, global compliance and measurable sustainability.

However, it is becoming clear that market demand is evolving and from a user perspective, standalone eSignature functionality is no longer enough. As customers compare eSign software, vendors need to incorporate these digital solutions into broader document processes, moving towards platforms to support end-to-end digital workflows. As a result, businesses are looking for “end-to-end process capabilities rather than standalone solutions. In other words, eSignatures are viewed as a core component of broader document management suites, potentially not something an enterprise would purchase on its own.”

The requirements of digital transformation are manifested in different ways for end-to-end document processing, but ultimately, a successful digitization process will depend on a wider range of capabilities beyond eSignature. Must-haves for the best eSignature platform to meet your business needs also include compliance and data protection, ease of use, flexibility to align workflows to varying levels of security, identity verification integrationsto support country-specific, best-of-breed authentication methods and even instant document creation.
