For many years there has been talk of the paperless office. However,  one of the last sets of business transactions to be truly automated is the plethora of documents that require a signature to complete the business transaction. Electronic signature (e-signature) solutions have been around for some time but are only now being seen as a critical component of digitization efforts in organizations.

This paper will first walk through the reasons why e-signature software is a key to business process digitization. The paper will then outline six key e-signature software selection criteria and their importance in evaluating your software decision. These include solution flexibility, white label branding, ease of use, integration, and automation. The evaluation criteria outlined in this report are based on qualitative interviews with IT, operations, and line-of-business (LOB) decision makers with the responsibility for e-signature software selection.

The paper also presents real-world business examples that show the benefits of implementing e-signature software as part of a company’s digital transformation. Finally, we will look at e-signature software evaluation best practices to help you quickly and efficiently select the best e-signature software solution for your organization.
