Nobody wants to be that person who misses out on great business deal or fun time, simply because they were not available to sign the necessary paperwork. Unfortunately, this happens far too often, even when it does not have to happen. Most people agree that electronic signatures are the solution to the problem. They save the day when an important document must be signed to become legal. In many cases, a person’s ability or inability to sign a document affects others around them.
Consider a situation in which your son or daughter has been looking forward to the class field trip all year. Perhaps on the day of the field trip they forget their permission form at home. The only way to rectify the situation is to provide an electronic signature. A school principal or teacher simply has to send you the form and allow you to use DocuSign to sign the paperwork. If you were not able to sign the paperwork in this way, then there is a good chance that your child would be left at home while all of his friends got to go on an educational and fun field trip.
Signing bank documents and insurance forms are also important. Perhaps you need to sign some paperwork for a home that you just bought, but you are not in state to sign it at the time. An electronic signature can help you to close a new home deal, even if you are in another state, or even in another country. If you were required to be present to sign, it could cost you thousands of dollars in travel expenses, and the entire process would take so much longer. More realtors and bank workers are accepting electronic signatures to help clients sign deals from afar.
If you have ever bought an item online, then you know that you must sign for it once it is delivered, especially if it is an item that is costly. Most delivery services will not leave such an item on your door step unless you specify for them to do this. In some cases people fully expect to be present at the time of delivery, yet something comes up. What usually happens is the package is taken to the main mail sorting facility in your area, and you must physically go to the location to sign for the package. An electronic signature eliminates this issue.
Electronic signatures allow you to conduct actions from anywhere you are located, and at any time of the day. Whether you need to sign a new car or apartment lease, or simply wish to sign for an item that you bought, electronic signatures are huge pieces to the puzzle when it comes to adding convenience to your daily life.
