The benefits of electronic signatures to a business are numerous. As opposed to wet-ink signatures that require the signer to have access to a printer, electronic signatures can be executed from virtually anywhere.
And the time needed to finalize contracts, approvals, and agreements is much shorter since the documents don’t have to come and go through the mail.
Reducing their reliance on paper and printing is a high priority for many businesses – especially those with remote teams. Electronic signatures are entirely paperless and allow a company to streamline collaboration between on-site and virtual teams.
An office-based HR team can finalize a contract with a new hire who works from home faster with the help of electronic signatures.
Electronic signatures made even simpler with pdfDocs and DocuSign working together
Our PDF editing and bundling application, pdfDocs, is where contracts, agreements, and documents being prepared for signature collection are finalized. So, it makes sense that teams can send them to DocuSign for electronic signature collection from within pdfDocs directly.
Integration between pdfDocs and DocuSign speeds up the process of sending documents out for signature.
pdfDocs users can send a single PDF or a collection of documents straight to DocuSign from the Export menu. It lets them skip the extra steps of exiting pdfDocs, logging into DocuSign, and manually uploading the PDFs requiring signing.
After sending their PDFs to DocuSign, users are presented with an Envelope that contains their documents. From there, they can add the recipients and an accompanying message and hit send.
