What is an eSignature?
An eSignature, or electronic signature, is the digital equivalent of a written signature. eSignature technology provides a legal and secure means of giving consent or approval on a digital document without the hassle of printing hard copies, signing them by hand, and scanning them back into the system, or waiting for signed documents to return by mail.
Now any business document can be electronically signed and emailed instantly – from anywhere, using any device.
End the paper chase
Are your cashflow, business agility, or customer satisfaction held back by documents waiting on approval or lost in stacks of paper? eSignature software puts an end to slow, paper-based, manual signoff processes, and keeps everything moving without delay. Simply click a link in your inbox, review a document on any device or browser, and click to sign.
Faster document lifecycles
Now important business documents, such as contracts, invoices, offer letters, and more can be approved and digitally signed in a few simple clicks. No more paperwork, printing and scanning headaches, or postage costs.
Easily include eSignatures in your automated approval workflows. Once an approver receives an automated email and clicks a few buttons to digitally sign the document, it is automatically approved and sent to the appropriate content repository for file storage.
Legally binding worldwide
eSignatures are accepted in legislation across the world, such as the ESIGN Act in the United States and eIDAS in Europe. Digital signatures therefore hold the same legal weight as written signatures.
eSignatures benefit your entire enterprise
Time is money. Most sales and service agreements require multiple back-and-forth negotiations for days, weeks, or even months – costing your organization money and risking the deal your sales reps worked hard to secure. Digitizing the approval process saves time, and therefore money.

Put the Power of Process® to work
Signatures are just one task in a business process. With a full automation platform like Nintex, you can easily manage, automate, and optimize the complete process.
"We are using Nintex Forms and Workflow as our primary form software for SharePoint 2016. Nintex is being used across the whole organization on a departmental basis. We are using Nintex Forms to replace the many InfoPath forms we have before the Microsoft support runs out. Nintex is also providing more options to connect to external database sources."
"My organization was able to use Nintex workflows to compress processes that previously took multiple steps (with multiple points of opportunity for human and technical errors) into a single step from a user point of view. Being able to eliminate the possibility of any one step being forgotten or bottlenecked was great. Additionally, the automation allows for the system to function independent of any one employee being at work, eliminating the fear of the "person who knows how it works" to leave and take the functionality with them."
