The Transformative Power of eSigning

Before the invention of electronic signatures, also known as eSign, obtaining signatures required in-person meetings, mailing documents, or using a fax machine.

Michael Scott of NBC’s “The Office” once said: “Fax? Why don’t you just send it over on a dinosaur.” He’s right—people rarely use a fax to conduct business these days. Fax machine usage in business decreased by 80% from 2000 to 2020. 

Thankfully, we can use eSignature to sign important documents quickly and safely in the modern business world. eSignature is a secure and reliable method for getting necessary signatures on documents. 

Using eSign to gather signatures for important documents is convenient for everyone involved. In this blog post, we’ll cover the benefits of using an eSign tool at your business and walk you through how SumoQuote’s eSign feature works. 

Benefits of Using eSign at Your Business 

Contractors can use eSignature to get client signatures on job estimates with little hassle. Using eSign at your contracting business is an efficient alternative to exclusively using paper copies for signing estimates and quotes. 

The easiest way to integrate eSignature into your business is to implement a software solution. Contractors across multiple industries can use an estimate software tool like SumoQuote. 

SumoQuote, which has an eSign feature, helps users stay organized and keep all their documents in one central location. 

eSignature allows people to digitally sign documents and removes many roadblocks involved with signing documents—for business owners and their clients. When you embrace the power of eSignature technology at your business, you can revolutionize how you handle client documents. 

Using eSignature at your contracting business is a seamless and efficient alternative to collecting traditional pen-and-paper signatures. Here are a few benefits of using eSign at your business: 

  • Documents are secure 
  • Cut down on printing and paper costs 
  • Increase flexibility 
  • Enable remote signing
  • Save time 
  • Remove the hassle of gathering signatures

Offering eSignature at your business is a win-win for you and your clients. eSigning documents simplifies the signature process and ensures you always know the status of documents. 

If you’re interested in going paperless at your business, onboarding an eSign tool is a must. eSignature tools allow people to sign documents without ever needing to print anything, significantly reducing the amount of paper you need to run your business.
