The digital tools powering today’s modern businesses make work faster, easier, and more accurate. But there’s still one tool that many companies have yet to adopt – the electronic signature.
See how electronic signatures equal big benefits for everyone in your organization.
• Business leaders say that improving document processes could yield 23% reduction in business/compliance risk
• Research shows a potential 30% reduction in cost and 36% increase in revenue.
• 45% of business leaders say departmental productivity would increase
• 72% agree that improving document processes would increase customer satisfaction and/or increase brand value.
With the right solution, electronic signatures are cost effective and simple to deploy. Perhaps because they seem so logical in today’s digital world, some organizations tend to overlook e-signatures to reduce costs, improve productivity and mitigate risk.
Research and customer experiences show that with e-signatures, organizations can:
• Shorten sales cycles from eight days to three hours
• Reduce costs by approximately 30% and increase revenue by more that 35%
• Significantly improve hiring and onboarding – in some cases, as much as 80% less time to process new hires
Here are some of the key reasons why e-signatures are essential to any organization’s move to digital processes.
Electronic signatures can have a dramatic impact on your organization’s digital transformation initiatives, helping to increase productivity, accelerate sales, strengthen collaboration and simplify a wide range of processes across all departments.
However to truly leverage e-signatures, you must ensure that your solutions adhere to the most stringent guidelines for security and regulatory compliance. Here are the most important and pertinent questions to ask potential vendors about security.
