Why use electronic signatures?

In a world rebuilt for remote work, electronic signatures are essential to moving legal matters forward.

But even before 2020, many courts and law firms had transitioned to digital signatures to improve workflow efficiency. Here are some key reasons why.

Paper signatures

  • Require personal delivery or visit
  • Send to one party at a time and wait for returned copy before forwarding
  • Status must be checked manually
  • Pay for printing/faxing/mailing 

Electronic signatures

  • "Work from home"-friendly
  • Send to multiple parties simultaneously
  • Current status for all signees can be viewed online
  • Pay only for software
