The entire point of an e-signature solution is to simplify the process of executing legal agreements, but you can undermine that value proposition if your e-signature app doesn't offer the right software integrations. When you're evaluating an e-signature tool, integration should be among the most important criteria you use.
To help you understand why, we've updated one of our most popular eBooks: "Adobe Sign vs. DocuSign vs. HelloSign vs. PandaDoc: Which is Better for Your Legal Team?"
Save Time with E-Signature
Writing a good contract is only the start of getting a productive legal agreement executed. All the parties have to sign in a timely manner. Thankfully, most of us have moved beyond the tedium of mailing or faxing legal agreements for "wet signature," with e-signature apps allowing deals to stay digital through their entire lifecycle. That saves you the tedium of scanning wet-signed documents into your digital document storage.
Theoretically, e-signature tools also mean you avoid all the manual effort, tedium, and potential errors of tracking who has what version of which unsigned contracts, then marrying up each signature page into a final document that gets redistributed to every stakeholder. Unfortunately, if your e-signature tool isn't integrated with your contract drafting, contract storage, and email applications, you've just traded juggling faxes and envelopes for juggling emails.
Integrate Your E-Signature Solution
If your e-signature tool is integrated, it can request signatures and collate executed agreements without ever forcing you to move files between software apps or signatories. With that in mind, we've added integration ratings to "Adobe Sign vs. DocuSign vs. HelloSign vs. PandaDoc: Which is Better for Your Legal Team?"
