When you fully implement the right eSign solution—your company’s digital experience can get a major boost. You will save money, print less, and have happier, more efficient employees.

Dans l'environnement professionnel actuel, les collaborateurs dans leur ensemble s'attendent à ce que toutes les informations soient numériques au moment de leur acquisition, de leur envoi, de leur analyse et de leur présentation à d'autres personnes. Cette attente est particulièrement manifeste en ce qui concerne les documents, qui sont incontournables dans le fonctionnement de nos organisations, notamment dans les devis, les contrats et les propositions.

Despite this, most workers feel stuck on the one-yard line, unable to triumphantly cross it and spike the ball. Contracts and agreements are still too often completed on paper. This typically requires a laborious process of back-and-forth, leaving projects to languish as every version is printed, marked up, reentered in digital form, and printed again.

Ce n'est pourtant pas une fatalité. Lorsque vous mettez en œuvre la solution eSign appropriée, au coût adapté à votre budget et intégrée à un système de productivité PDF de niveau entreprise, l'expérience numérique de votre entreprise peut être considérablement améliorée. Vous réaliserez des économies, imprimerez moins et aurez des employés plus heureux et plus efficaces.

The Current State of eSign

The global electronic signature market is on the ascent and is expected to grow at a rapid pace to reach over $9 billion by 2023. An increase in security concerns will likely contribute to a significant growth in this demand. This is coupled with a growing e-commerce market, the need for more efficient workflows, and increasing global online transactions.

The increasing impact of cloud computing has further escalated the need for vibrant eSignature tools and fueled its market growth. As more companies negotiate terms and make deals online, they don’t have patience for momentum-stopping paper contracts, so the ability to digitally facilitate every step of the process without interruption becomes crucial, particularly in industries such as finance and banking.

Les dangers des signatures sur papier

In addition to the annoyance and inconvenience of paper signatures, there are significant risks to your company’s bottom line, customer service, and legal team’s ability to get a good night’s sleep.

  • Lost productivity and revenue. Waiting for a single signature is bad enough, but add to that multiple approvals on complex projects, and the delays can be epic. Factor in the time and cost involved in printing, stamping, scanning, sending, and resending, and you’ve now lost days or even weeks. Printing and rescanning documents can slow down sales teams and sometimes even cost your company the deal itself.
  • Human error. Paper is fragile and destructible. It can easily be misplaced, workers can make mistakes while entering confidential information, and parts of documents may be rendered illegible or damaged.
  • Legal issues. Outdated or incorrect contracts are more likely to occur with paper, as there’s less ability to track versions and make them available to multiple parties. Plus, without a confirmation trail indicating that documents have been signed, you may soon be on the road to audits or compliance issues.
  • Unclear workflows. Signed documents that are manually scanned and stored on individual computers are not nearly as trackable as most eSign solutions.
  • Trickle down to customers. Misunderstandings or delays in service caused by misfiled or unsigned documents may alienate once-loyal customers.
  • Paper cuts! The cost of Band-Aids alone is a drag on the budget …

Why eSign Will End the Reign of Paper

The list of reasons why eSign is a boon for your business is long, but here are just a few of the highlights:

  • It’s cheaper. Replace outdated paper-based processes with more efficient digital workflows.
  • It’s safer. Improve compliance and security with electronic records and audit trails.
  • It’s faster. Save time with a simpler way to sign documents and gain valuable data throughout every stage of signature collection.
  • It’s cleaner. Streamline your process when you remove manual steps and limit human error.
  • It’s smaller. Cut down on printing, signing, and filing, and you’ll have fewer space-consuming cabinets and other storage needs.
  • C'est plus convivial. Votre personnel, vos clients et vos fournisseurs vous apprécieront davantage en bénéficiant d'une expérience efficace du début à la fin.
  • It’s less painful. (Remember paper cuts!)

Offrez à vos équipes et à vos clients une solution eSign et ils pourront (enfin) mettre fin à la routine épuisante qu'est l'impression/la signature/la numérisation à laquelle tant d'entreprises sont confrontées. Cela permettra de réduire l'impression, d'améliorer l'expérience client et de fournir une piste vérifiable de chaque signature.
