  1. It reduces turnaround time

The ability to send an offer letter digitally significantly reduces the turnaround time between offering and accepting. It can remove several steps from the process:

  • It eliminates the need to print, sign and prepare an offer letter for mailing.
  • It eliminates the physical process of mailing the document for both the HR team and the candidates.
  • It eliminates the need to scan in signed paper documents.
