How it works

There are 4 ways to create an electronic signature.

  • Draw your signature using your computer mouse or touchpad

  • Take a photo of your signature using your smartphone and upload it to the eSign Application

  • Type your name and select any one of our fonts to give your typed signature an authentic touch

  • Sign using your finger either on our mobile app for iOS and Android, or using our in-person signing feature on the iPad

Once created, an electronic signature can be added to any document along with other annotations such as check marks or freeform text.

Signature Authenticates

eSign authenticates document signers so you know who is signing your documents. Any person signing a document through our eSign application must either have login information for their portal account, or have received in their email account a request for signature. To protect the user accounts, all user information transferred is 256-bit SSL encrypted, including usernames and passwords. We also seek to prevent others from accessing or using your account by imposing automated session time-outs, and emailing you every time a contract is sent to, received by, or signed under your account.

Signature Audit Trail

Each signature on a contract is imposed and affixed to the contract. When you request a signature, the eSign application affixes an audit trail cover page to the contract itself. The audit trail contains a globally unique identifier, or GUID, that can be used to look up a record in our database, which shows who signed a document and when.
