A report by Forrester Research estimated that e-signature use grows 53 percent annually, with the number of transactions that utilize e-signatures topping 210 million in 2014 and most likely go beyond 700 million in 2017.
As e-signature adoption becomes more widespread in business, they are being more commonly used in legal documents. While the good news is that e-signatures are just as legally enforceable as putting pen to paper, without the right evidence they could dissolve under judicial and opposing counsel scrutiny. Whether an e-signature is defensible is dependent on three elements, independence, identity authentication, and the ability to track both modifications to signed documents and the actions of the signer. Lucky for you, the integration from DocuSign, a partner of Effacts, has all three of these components.
