How does any business owner live these days without an electronic signing app? With the emergence of covid-19 and lack of face-to-face interaction, online contracts are part of day- to-day business. But that can make important signatures on legal and business documents a little difficult when everyone works remotely.
Online contracts became legally binding in 2000 with e-signature law-making electronic contracts and signatures legally binding in the same way a paper contract is legally binding.
DocuSign allows businesses to sign and send contracts anytime, anywhere. And importantly, documents are encrypted with an audit trail maintained. It’s easy to use, and while not free there are trials allowed before signing up. https://www.docusign.com.au/
