Business contracts, transactions, deeds, proposals all have to be signed to be considered legal. Sending these documents from one location to the other can be time-consuming and tiresome. The solution to this is electronic signatures. An e-signature allows you to affix signatures to digitalized documents electronically—it is the digital equivalent of a person’s handwritten signature. Apart from being more efficient, using an e-signature service also improves the way documents are stored and available at any time by being securely saved in the cloud.
How e-signature documents are stored
Organizing and accessing files can be a hassle. Print documents, file them in folders, find physical space to store the folders, and have the documents accessible on location only can hinder fast-paced business transactions. The benefits of using an e-signature service like Countersign include helping to store all documents with signature needs.
Countersign uses cloud storage to organize and store documents. This is more efficient, and documents can easily be recovered at any time, from any location. Cloud storage provides you with organized and accessible files at any stage of the signature process:
For contracts or agreements that need to be sent often to different parties, Countersign allows you to create templates. Upload a document and define all the information potential signers must complete and save it in the cloud. When a client needs to complete this form, you simply pull it up from the template, complete the personalized data and send it off within seconds. Thanks to the document being in the cloud, you can request the signature right when you need it. You can seal the deal before the client gets cold feet.
