E-signature Software

Signing off doesn't mean sitting behind a desk.  With e-Signature software, the document comes to you. You can sign using your phone or any browser. RightSignature comes with your Citrix ShareFile account. Everything's encrypted and no matter how big the file size — think CAD drawings or medical records — there's no email attachments. Just send a secure link.

Save time

A British survey found that 84 percent of documents are printed just so they can be signed. Seventy-two percent of organizations that print out documents say processes are delayed because of the need to collect signatures. And with 40 percent of departments saying they need to collect two or more hand signatures for each transactional document, that time really starts to add up.

The United States is one of the world’s biggest consumers of paper, so we’re likely wasting even more time than those British survey respondents. Pearson reports that U.S. managers spend an average of three hours a week looking for paper that has been misfiled, mislabeled or lost. IDC Research estimates that Fortune 1000 companies waste $48,000 per week, or nearly $2.5 million per year, due to an inability to locate and retrieve information.

Save money

The IDC Research study estimates that an enterprise employing 1,000 knowledge workers wastes at least $2.5 to $3.5 million per year searching for information or recreating information that can’t be found. These enterprises also lose out on over $15 million of potential revenue, since that time could have been spent on business development.

Add in the cost of printers, ink and filing cabinets to store these hundreds of thousands of documents, stamps, envelopes, packaging, staples and various other office supplies you need to create hard copies of important signed documents, and you have a major drain on expenses for an office.
