DocuSign Digital Signature Service

DocuSign is an electronic signature service that allows you to securely sign and initial an electronic document instead of a paper copy. You can also send electronic documents for signature—to one person or many people—and easily see the status of the documents you send.

This is a great way to transform your current paper workflows into a digital process. There are several advantages to switching to DocuSign:

  • Secure and legally binding. DocuSign provides secure delivery of official documents and is legally binding.
  • Saves time.  Your current approval process might take weeks. However, with DocuSign, there is no paper to be hand- delivered or mailed. Documents are electronically routed through the approval process as they are signed, reducing turnaround time and manual staff labor.
  • Saves money. The DocuSign process can be paperless, which reduces printing, postal and storage costs.
  • Tracks the document. DocuSign tracks each document’s location in real time as well as who still needs to sign it, with updates sent periodically to remind signers they have a document waiting for their approval. No more physical forms getting lost.

 

If you’d like to transition your paper documents to electronic files while maintaining the proper flow of signatures, submit the DocuSign Request service request.
