Think back to the last time you signed a document – anything from a business contract to a rental agreement. You likely had to first print and then sign the document. To return it, you had to either copy it and send it by snail mail, or scan it and attach it to an email. Sound laborious and time consuming? That’s because it was.
Today’s fast-paced work environment has given way to many efficient technological advancements, but at a cost: society has become increasingly impatient, expecting immediate results. The traditional sign and send method simply isn’t cutting it.
Enter the electronic signature, also known as the e-signature. Documents can now be signed, authenticated and submitted digitally, and most are as legally binding as traditional paperwork—no printing or postage stamps necessary.
