Is your business ready for online document signing?

Applications, contracts, forms, and NDAs. In every field and every business, it’s a necessary, if unexciting part of the workday. For organizations that rely on billing clients for income preparing and filling out these documents to get signed is generally considered administrative time, not billable. That means that every hour your organization spends with paperwork is an hour that costs you money.

What are some of the other ways your paperwork is costing you money, and how can online document signing help? Let’s take a look.

1. Staff time spent following up with unresponsive clients

People are the most important part of any organization, and the most expensive as well. The time of your staff is precious, but sometimes getting contracts signed can be especially unproductive. How many hours can you lose when you’re waiting for a client to sign an important document so you can get to work? With e-signatures from RightSignature, your clients can get back to you faster with any computer or mobile device, and RightSignature reminds your slower clients to sign automatically, so you don’t have to worry about it.

2. Expensive errors and omissions — no more

An erroneous or incomplete document is easy to miss at first, but the longer it goes unchecked, the worse the consequences can be for your business. This unexpected source of expense can really hurt businesses because it’s so difficult to prepare for. Luckily, e-signatures make it almost impossible for your clients to submit a document with errors or omissions thanks to easy guided online contract signing technology.

3. Paper is costly to store and preserve

You may feel secure keeping paper records of your most important contracts, but paper storage is often more vulnerable than online documents. The office space your business uses for filing cabinets, printers, and fax machines might be better spent by adding more employees who can bring more value to your company. Not to mention the costs associated with climate controlling your paper storage. If you utilize document signing online instead, your contracts are all stored online, so you don’t have to worry about any of it.

These are just three ways e-signatures are saving businesses of all sizes a lot of money. Do any of these problems apply to your organization? If so, you’re probably ready for online document signing at your workplace!
