More and more business owners today are choosing to move their companies online or implementing virtual processes into their existing business workflows. This shift includes accepting digital payments, selling more products online, and eliminating traditional paper processes. For many, this means accepting electronic signatures.
An electronic signature, or e-signature, is a legally binding, digital version of a handwritten signature. E-signatures allow signees to quickly receive and sign documents from any computer or mobile device. And a sender can receive signed documents in record time.
Benefits of integrating e-signature software with QuickBooks
Convenience is just one of the many benefits of electronic signatures. Using e-signature software, businesses also benefit from:
- Increased security: Using digital documents and e-signatures is more secure than pen and paper. Digital documents are more difficult to tamper with or alter, and much harder to lose.
- Better tracking: When you use e-signature software you can easily track who has opened and signed a document. Automatic reminders and notifications keep your agreements on track.
- Quick turnaround: e-signature software allows clients to get their hands on and sign important documents faster, in real-time. That means no more delays waiting for time-sensitive agreements to trade hands.
- More organization: Collect multiple e-signatures without creating duplicate copies of the same document. A paperless workflow process increases automation and keeps you organized.
- Fast payments: Get from quote-to-cash faster when you use electronic signatures for invoices and payment agreements.
All these benefits add up to saved time and money. You’ll reduce paper and printing costs and save valuable time tracking down signatures and approvals.
