The Best Tools for Electronic Signatures
Updated: Feb 24
The global pandemic has meant that we're turning to more online tools to complete tasks that we used to do in-person, from digital whiteboards to electronic signatures. Making sure the latest versions of your business' legal agreements are signed by everyone is crucial in protecting your business.
Electronic signature software isn't just about lessening your environmental impact or maintaining social distance right now; it also helps get documents signed far quicker, which keeps your business moving forward. Here are our top tools to get you started:
Part of the Adobe suite, Adobe sign claims to "deliver the best possible document signing experience.".
You can trial it for 14 days for free, and their basic packages start at £10.42 pm which includes features we use all the time like automatic notifications and reminders on documents and commenting on PDFs.
It integrates with Microsoft 365, Salesforce and more.
If Gmail and Google Drive are your platforms of choice, Dochub is a great tool to sign PDF documents online as well as request signatures.
Their free plan includes:
5 e-signatures per month
