e-signatures in online forms
If you need to create an online form and you need to add a digital signature to it – can this be done? can a digital signature be incorporated in it?
The answer is “Yes” – this can easily be achieved with a form builder, which offers Standard elements like textboxes, radio buttons or checkboxes. These are easily found in all form builders, but special elements like signatures are not always available, so you need to make sure the form builder you want to use possesses the special elements you need.
The Signature – manual VS. digital?
Businesses still have to use signatures as part of their business processes and that is a fact. they use it, for example, to get a customer’s consent, a manager’s approval, or a sign of obligation. The signature can be used in many different purposes.
Because of the fact that many businesses still use paper forms, getting them signed means that you need to print them out, have them signed manually and fax them.
And online forms? what happens when forms are digital? In businesses that do use online forms instead of hard copy ones the electronic chain is often broken in order to add a signature to the digital form and this is a shame.
There are great benefits to adopting digital signatures: why use paper forms, which take up space, are not cost effective, are easily damaged or torn, can be misplaced, require delivery, cannot be easily edited, may lead to mistakes, not mentioning the environmental issue.
This is why the digital signature is a good solution – it keeps the process online, streaming, fast and effective.
