We are living in different times which call for innovative solutions. In ancient times, people used to sign documents by using a ring pressed into a wax seal that would provide assurance that the document has not been forged or tampered with. Fortunately, we don’t live in those times anymore, and as romantic as the ring wax seal was, you can look at e-signature as the modern-day signet stamp. These days, we need to adapt, and DocuSign will help you do that.

All sectors need agreements, contracts, forms and opportunities. As a result, e-signature is everywhere. Electronic signatures can fit in almost any industry, government, or legal application.

Let’s break it down by industry and see how DocuSign can help you achieve the efficiency you always dreamt about when it comes to signing documents.

Health care
DocuSign lets medical institutions to interact with patients from anywhere in the world. DocuSign makes it easier to fill out new patient forms, physician credentials, HIPAA forms and overall simplify the patient experience by transforming paperwork into simple, guided forms. This way, health care members can quickly and easily speed up the process to update records and other related documents.

Some of the benefits of electronic signature in the health care industry are:

  • Keeping medical records organized
  • Elimination of documentation errors and lost documents
  • Increased visibility of forms
  • Increased productivity in admission areas
  • Access to medical record on mobile
  • Compliance with HIPAA standards

Legal
As a member of the legal business, you may wonder about the authenticity of electronic signatures. Does e-signature have the same authenticity as a written signature? The answer is yes, DocuSign offers the most trusted, reliable, and secure digital transaction and it is legally equivalent to written signatures.

Benefits of e-signature Compared to ‘Wet Ink’

Using DocuSign inside your legal organization often exceeds what is possible with paper-based agreements, as a DocuSign agreement is tamper-evident and includes a court-admissible certificate of completion and audit trail.

Also, e-signatures backed by an audit trail will help clear the authenticity of a signature easier. Audit trails are digital records maintained by the e-signature service that, among other things, identify when a document was sent, opened and signed, as well as the names, email addresses and unique signing identifiers of the signatories. They also may include records like IP addresses or machine IDs to further trace when and where a document was opened and signed.

An e-signature creates a binding and enforceable legal contract that is widely accepted throughout the industrialized world, and more secure than traditional paper-based signatures because they’re less susceptible to forgery.

Education
Institutions are constantly asked to do more with less. For higher education institutions, agreements are of paramount importance, from financial aid for students to hiring faculty and staff. By eliminating paper and manual processes, DocuSign increases operational efficiency and creates a seamless student experience while also making a positive impact on the environment.

With DocuSign, you can streamline operations across all departments inside the institution. This translates into more time spent on teaching, learning, and research.

Government
Businesses run on agreements and government business is no exception. As public awareness of electronic communications increases, so does the demand for online interactions with government agencies. But public confidence in the security of the government’s electronic information processes is essential as sensitive information is being dealt with everyday. DocuSign ensures peace of mind and accountability with the strongest data encryption technologies commercially available so that state and local governments can focus on the processes that really matter, such as:

  • Travel and expense forms
  • Permitting processes
  • Hiring processes
  • Employee benefit and consent forms
  • Payroll and finance processes
  • Housing programs
  • Grant processes
  • Compliance processes
  • Inspections
  • Audits
  • … and more

Concluding Thoughts
These are only a few of the industries that clearly see the value of DocuSign. There is value for e-signature in every industry out there. It is forecasted that the Electronic signature market will grow to $2.02 billion by the end of 2020. Why not set yourself apart from the competition by adopting DocuSign today?
