Growing usage of electronic signatures or eSignatures signifies a shift toward a paperless environment in line with the rapid digital transformation tsunami. It also makes sense as people are short of time and electronic signatures are fast, convenient, and simple to use for documents like forms, sales contracts, agreements, or any legal business.
Most businesses use Microsoft Word for everything – be it employee agreements, onboarding, purchase orders, or contracts. And preparing a contract or agreement form in Word to get it signed electronically is an easy process.
RApp, a plug & play eSignature desktop application helps you do that. It enables the users of RSign, a global eSignature solution from RPost, to send forms and documents for eSignature with a few simple clicks directly from their Windows desktop, Microsoft Office applications, (Word, Excel, Powerpoint) as well as any desktop or web application that connects to a printer. Here’s how to do it.
Creating an electronic signature and getting a contract signed in Microsoft Word is a simple three-step process in RApp.
1. Once you are finished working on your document, simply navigate to the RPost tab that is seamlessly embedded within your Microsoft Word application. It will take you to the RApp interface.
2. Select your preferred method to send. If you have already created a template or a rule, simply choose it from your library.
3. Add recipients’ names and other details, customize your message and subject if you need to, and send. You are done!
Your recipients will get a link in their email from RSign to sign electronically – something like the below. They just need to click the link to open the document on their device and follow the instructions. It works across all devices and your recipients don’t need to download or sign-up for anything.
The RSign interface offers several features to make your electronic signature document preparation and signing process seamless.
RSign also enables you to get signed PDFs. You can open the existing PDF file of your contract in RSign, configure, and send it to the recipients to sign documents online. The entire process remains the same as for the Word doc with a guided, eSign experience. Plus, the process itself is automated. You don’t have to follow up with any of your recipients for signatures, saving you significantly in time and costs.
RSign guarantees compliance with GDPR and HIPAA and provide you with many privacy options to protect sensitive data. It’s compliant with data privacy and other regulatory guidelines ( ESIGN Act, UETA, eIDAS, ECTA).
Plus, all parties receive Legal Proof® records and forensic audit trail of every e-sign and UETA-compliant transaction for an atomic timestamp of signer IP addresses, date and time of delivery, and exact message content.
RSign saves even more time and money with off-the-shelf integrations with the systems and tools you already use. Whatever your industry and sector (legal, sales, self-storage, real-estate, insurance, healthcare, and more), it’s easy to integrate with several plug-and-play standard options.
Microsoft Word is the most popular word processing software for both businesses and individuals. However, it has limited functionality when it comes to electronic signatures.
RApp not just enables you to create free electronic signatures in Word in a fast and simple manner but does far more. And it’s much more affordable. Try it – it’s free to use!
