3 reasons to switch to an e-signature software


For HR, it’s important to focus on ways to streamline processes such as onboarding, benefits enrollment, and compliance. Thanks to the powerful automation of BerniePortal’s e-signature software, you can transform the way you collect signatures on documents so you can focus your time on building your company, all while keeping your new employees engaged.


What is an e-signature?


An electronic signature is a version of a traditional ink signature that is captured in digital format. In the US, an e-signature provides the same legal commitment as a handwritten signature if it meets the terms of the ESIGN Act.


Collecting signatures is a process that can be lengthy and complicated, requiring several people to sign, copy, and store the document. Companies shouldn’t waste valuable time collecting physical signatures the hard way. Electronic signatures simplify the process from start to finish through speed, efficiency, and security.


#1: Speed


How much time does it usually take an employee to sign a document? Any employer who has had to collect a paper-based signature before understands how time-consuming the process can be. Electronic signatures provide a solution so the steps that follow the signatures can begin immediately.

#3: Security


Paper documents are not as safe and secure as you may think. They are prone to get stolen, misplaced, tampered with, or destroyed. E-signatures, on the other hand, are able to offer much greater security and safety for the documents. They implement not only a safe way to send, receive and store a document, but they contain more information such as the time, date, IP address, and unique user identification that was utilized at the time of signing.
