Are you still printing documents only to sign them and scan them again?
A growing number of businesses are moving away from paper-based forms and contracts and embracing electronic forms and digital signatures. These recent advances facilitate workflow automation, which increases efficiency, reduces errors, promotes transparency and slashes business costs.
In the past, forms that require multiple signatures either involved someone physically carrying or messengering or mailing the document to the next party to sign, or each person printing, signing, scanning and emailing the form to the next party. Getting a document that needed multiple signatures signed could take days or weeks, particularly if the signatories were in different locations.
Enter live forms with digital signatures and automated approval routing, and that painstaking process can be boiled down to mere minutes.
frevvo’s digital signature software already supports electronic signatures so any authenticated user can digitally sign a section, lock it down and prevent tampering with the data. That’s an incredibly powerful feature but many customers still want the ability to add a wet signature via signature pads like Topaz devices, touchscreen computers and mobile devices. We’re working on that and expect that it’ll be available in the next release.
As usual with frevvo, we’ll make sure this is extremely easy to use. How will it work? You’ll be able to drag and drop a new Signature control from the palette anywhere into the form. You can make it required, add a tool tip, style it etc. like any other control. To sign, simply click or touch a signature control, and frevvo will present an entry dialog. Sign using a touchscreen, track pad, stylus or just using your mouse.
Click Done and the signature is displayed in the form scaled down into the signature control as shown below.
Easy as that. This signature functionality will require no special hardware; all you need is a smartphone or a computer with a relatively modern browser that supports HTML5. Coming soon …
