Electronic signatures

Save time with electronic signatures

For small business owners, getting customers and contacts to sign documents is an important task. In many industries, work can’t begin until every document has been signed correctly. Yet, the process of collecting signatures manually can easily drag out for days or even weeks.

Technology for electronic signatures can help by streamlining workflows and simplifying the tasks of tracking the signature process. With the right software, individuals can receive documents online immediately after they are created and add their digital signatures with just a few clicks. The business can immediately view the document and verify that it’s been signed correctly. Automation takes the headache out of tracking the status of each document, and electronic security ensures the safety of each file.

As a do-it-all platform offering comprehensive small business tools, Thryv provides an easy-to-use solution for electronic signatures.
