How Financial Services Professionals Use Electronic Signatures Every Day

The financial services industry is increasingly focused on modernizing technology and differentiating from competition to provide better customer experiences. This includes the act of obtaining valid signatures from them. Without good digital experiences, businesses risk customers abandoning agreements or slowing down processes.

It’s no surprise that financial services leaders rank customer digital experience as their number one business challenge and priority investment area in 2022.

Even as many organizations are adopting hybrid work and people are returning to the office, electronic signatures are simpler, easier and more secure than physical signatures. They help reduce errors experienced in manual signing processes and get agreements signed faster. With a complete digital audit trail, your agreements are automatically saved, and can be accessed from virtually anywhere.
