How to Reduce Paper Usage through Electronic Signatures

Have you ever received a contract or proposal that you needed to sign, and had to first print, then scan, and then send it? And only then for you to throw the scanned paper copy in the bin! Not only is it a waste of time, but of resources too, and it goes without saying that it’s bad for the environment. In today’s modern age, the usage of electronic signatures is a priority for businesses who look to become efficient, and save both time and resources. Digital signatures are a simple and effective solution that any business can implement to both secure and simplify the document workflow of any organisation.

So, how does it work?

DocuWare Signature Service ensures that your documents are digitally signed by a verified service provider, whilst offering both maximum speed and flexibility. By integrating external signature providers such as Validated ID or DocuSign seamlessly into a DocuWare workflow, documents are automatically transferred between DocuWare and the Trust Provider. Signer is notified when documents are ready for signing.

So, what’s in it for me?
