A Checklist for Choosing E-Signature Software

Electronic Signature Software

Modern business environments are increasingly relying on electronic signatures. By using them, companies can sign documents electronically instead of physically sending them out to business partners, vendors, customers, and employees.

The benefits of using electronic signatures for businesses are many. They help to improve document workflows, reduce errors, streamline payments, improve security, and enhance the customer experience all while reducing paper usage.

With the world becoming more digitally oriented, electronic signatures have become increasingly important. As consumers become more comfortable using their smartphones and tablets to do business, companies are finding ways to take advantage of electronic signatures to improve efficiency and lower costs. And, it is no surprise that the electronic signature market is growing at a rapid rate. According to FinancesOnline, the global digital signature market size was $2.8 billion in 2020, and is projected to grow to $14.1 billion by 2026.

There are many electronic signature software vendors on the market today. Each offering different features, price points, service and support packages, security specifications, and more. 

When you are ready to start the search for an electronic signature solution for your business, where do you begin? With so many electronic signature software vendors on the market, it can be extremely frustrating and time-consuming to start researching and reviewing solutions without a reference of what to look for. That’s why ReadySign created the E-Signature Software Selection Checklist.
