Small Business Terms: What Is An Electronic Signature?

0 min read

An electronic signature requires no pen or paper and streamlines your ability to do business through the internet. The option to acknowledge and sign pertinent documents by typing your name or checking a box eliminates the inconvenience of faxing or mailing contracts or agreements that can get misplaced. Furthermore, endorsing these documents online can speed the process of conducting business with trusted partners, often making it easier to pay or get paid.

Applications such as Citrix’s RightSignature allow vested parties to share documents with three basic steps in under a minute. Mobile devices can be used, enabling you to complete business transactions anywhere, at any time. If paperless systems appeal to you, e-signature apps are a must to improve productivity in your business.
