eSignatures are becoming more and more prominent with each passing day. Why? Because they increase company productivity by saving time, costs, and offering a legal audit trail of every signature collected.
Although there are hundreds more, we've listed seven organizations who are proven examples of the positive effects that moving to paperless documents can have on your company.
At any given time, the NBA can have hundreds of documents that need signing, and that's a lot of paper to keep track of. Deron Williams of the Brooklyn Nets broke records and started trends by signing one of the largest deals to date with an eSignature. He signed his $100M deal with the Nets using just his index finger and the SignNow iPad app – not a pen in sight.
2. Pepsi & Mekanism
When Pepsi's marketing team got together with Mekanism to create an amazing experience for the SuperBowl Halftime show they faced the obstacle of collecting five hundred signatures from people all over the country. Pepsi wanted to incorporate their biggest fans into the show, but collecting notarized signatures looked like it was going to be too difficult a task.
Luckily, SignNow came to the rescue and a process that could have taken weeks was completed in under seventy-two hours with the reliable sources of eSignatures. Elizabeth Morse, Director of Integrated Production for Mekanism, had this to say: ‘SignNow's eSignature solution was an easy and powerful way to manage our signing process and collect signatures'.
3. Colliers International
Colliers were not originally keen on eSigning as their customers had previously found it complicated. However, as one of the biggest real estate firms in the US, Colliers collects signatures relating to hundreds of different properties and needed a solution to increase their productivity.
They now use SignNow by Barracuda as they found it simpler and more affordable than what competitors had previously offered them. By switching from paper documents to electronic they have saved countless hours and thousands of dollars.
4. State Farm
Insurance companies, such as State Farm, are becoming more competitive by incorporating eSignatures to better serve their customers.
Within the legal sector the paper chase is not only lengthy, but it is stressful too, for the client and the company. By moving towards a paperless workplace, State Farm has eliminated these worries and reduced the risk of losing important documents.
SignNow has proven to be an invaluable tool for pharmaceutical companies like GSK. All of their representatives now use iPads, meaning the necessary documents they use on a daily basis, such as consent forms, waivers, and physician paperwork, are right at their fingertips. Reps can easily take orders on the go, and doctors can sign within seconds, making sales and finalizing agreements easier than it's ever been. By incorporating the use of eSignatures, GSK has also reduced compliance risks for the company by ensuring that every signature on every document is authentic.
6. Hammond Police Department
Not many people give thought to the amount of paperwork Police Departments deal with, but SignNow did.
Before they switched to eSignatures, The Hammond Police Department had to take laptops and mobile printers with them on the road in order to collect vital signatures. If that wasn't enough hard work, they then spent a significant amount of time organizing and filing the documents, costing them hours of productivity.
Now, with the use of the SignNow iPad app they have gone completely paperless. They can open a number of different templates whilst out in the field, and get fast and secure signatures within seconds.
7. New England Patriots
The New England Patriots were one of the first NFL teams to simplify their business operations through the implementation of eSignatures. The Patriots use SignNow for a variety of operations across multiple departments, from player contracts to on-the-field programs. Jim Nolan, SVP Operations, New England Patriots said, ‘We have hundreds of contracts and official documents at any given time, and being able to use innovative technologies like SignNow to improve efficiencies saves us valuable time and resources'. Now, the New England Patriots employees and partners can create, sign and share documents via any computer, tablet or mobile device.
