Things to consider when selecting an electronic signature vendor:


Are electronic signatures legal? Does this vendor provide additional resources to capture the steps it takes each customer to e-sign a document?


The vendor should mention a digital fingerprint within signed documents to validate the integrity of the electronic record. This makes sure to keep your customer’s e-signatures safe and secure. 

Custom Usability

Electronic signature platforms should be easy for all departments in your company to use. Collaboration tools allow for multiple users to access contracts and documents before they are sent to signers. Logos and editing should be accessible prior to sending documents in order to maintain brand recognition.


Software should grant entire teams access to as many records, signatures, and sendable contracts needed. 

What Signature Acceleration Platforms do leading vendors use?

Leading eSignature vendors execute contracts on their own sites using the best form of electronic signature: click-to-sign agreements. They are the fastest, most seamless way of capturing  signatures online. These fast, easily traceable signatures, however, are not what many of these leading vendors are trying to sell.

Their platforms do not enable customers to contract with their own clients in one click as prompted when entering the leading vendor’s site. Sending their contracts to signers requires a multitude of steps. Before users can even prompt their own customers to acquire their signature, multiple forms must be filled out in order to generate the contract that will be signed.

Sure, at the end of this process, lots of companies have the squiggly lined signature that resembles writing on pen and paper. But, if this method of e-signing is so great, why don’t these online signature vendors use their own products? Because, it isn’t the fastest way to execute a contract.
