Does everyone signing the document need an electronic signing account?
No, recipients of your documents do not need an account to sign contracts. Your document will be sent via email. Recipients can review the document, adopt an electronic signature, and complete the signing process without having an account.
“DocuSign makes a big difference to everyone involved in the contracting process, especially the client. I would not want to run any kind of client service business without DocuSign.” — Gregg, EVP Sales & Service
