How to Sign Electronically With a Few Simple Steps

Printing, scanning, and posting contract forms and other documents is a time-consuming process. Switching to electronic signatures or eSignatures eliminates any operational losses resulting from delays. They are easy, fast, intuitive, eco-friendly, and work for all the documents – from contracts, agreements, and purchase orders to NDAs and employee onboarding. It’s no wonder they are becoming hugely popular these days.

Many programs have built-in digital signing features that add an extra layer of convenience and security for creating an electronic signature and adding it to Word, PDF, or other documents. RSign – a global eSignature solution from RPost, with advanced security and encryption capabilities, helps your recipients to sign electronically in a few simple steps.

How to Sign Electronically With RSign

It’s super easy for your recipients to sign documents online with RSign on any device, anywhere. RSign’s guided, eSign experience guides them with instructions the whole way. And the best part is they don’t have to install or download anything to sign electronically. All they need to do is:

  • Click on the eSignature link they receive in their inboxes.
  • Enter their details – name, initials, signature on the form in the RSign interface. They can choose to upload, type, or draw their signatures.
  • Check the agreement box and click on “Accept and Sign” - that’s it!

Additional RSign Features for Electronic Signatures

There are several additional features in store for your recipients to make the entire online signatures process seamless:

  • Finish the entire process in one go or choose to do it later.
  • Add any support documents (PDF, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, image, or text document).
  • Zoom in or zoom out of the screen as per convenience.
  • Download the document to their device.
  • Change the signer’s name and email address with comments, if any.
  • An option to decline to sign if your recipients feel something isn’t right in the form or some details are missing; they must specify a reason for doing so, and you will be notified about their reason to decline.

Once your recipients sign the document, they will get a copy in their email and you will get a notification informing you that your document has been signed.

You don’t have to follow up with any of your recipients for signatures. And whether your recipients wish to electronically sign a PDF or a Word document, the process remains the same.

Evidentiary Record

Whenever anyone signs electronically with RSign, they have peace of mind as it holds up in court! Your recipients will get a signed copy for their reference with a complete audit log of what was agreed to when and where.

Similarly, you will also get an RSign certificate in your email, which includes the audit log, each party’s name, signature, IP address, server logs, and other forensic transaction information down to the date and timestamp. It increases the evidential weight of the eSign record for court-admissible authentication.

Is Electronic Signature for You?

Electronic signatures were thought of as a futuristic tech earlier but now they are commonplace. RSign eSignatures are convenient, fast – and most importantly, more secure than paper signatures. RSign’s patented technology makes eSignatures legally binding and compliant with data privacy and other regulatory guidelines (ESIGN Act, UETA, eIDAS, ECTA).

Plus, RSign is user-friendly and much more affordable at scale. Try it for free electronic signatures!

At RPost, we simply can’t afford to make you enter a support queue. Or upcharge for each feature. Or not be the most affordable. Or not continuously innovate so that we can always be the most feature-rich while easy to use. We can’t be anything less than the best e-sign and e-security product with the best people and service to support you.

Obviously, the thing we try hardest at is just to be there for you. To start you out right with new services that are easy to use, work well and have the features you need now (and will need in the future). We will give you the training and attention your team needs from a support staff that makes us proud every day.

Why do we do this? Because we’ve learned over the last 20 years in this business that our customers are counting on us every day. Because we live and breathe security and process optimization. Because we can’t afford to take you for granted. We try harder to ensure your success.
