What is an e-signature?

An e-signature, or electronic signature, is a method for signing contracts and other documents electronically, without pen or paper. Electronic signatures are used by businesses to save time and reduce costs, and have the same legal validity and enforceability of pen-and-paper documents, when executed in compliance with e-signature laws.

Why do businesses need e-signature software?

An average workday in many businesses is filled with paperwork—contracts and documents that need to be filled out, signed, and returned. E-signature software allows companies to collect these electronically, without the need for paper-based processes. In common practice, such documents are often signed in a method directly analogous to a paper document: by applying the signer’s name, either typed or hand-drawn using a mouse or touch screen.
