When working with PDFs and other digital file formats, we often are required to obtain signatures in certain areas of the documents. In the past, this task would require the signer to print the PDF file, fill out any fields that need to be completed by hand, and either return it in person or by fax. If the document needs more than one signer, the signer would find themselves chasing other people to sign the document in the appropriate areas.
Today, the same individual would be able to simply use an e-signature solution like OneSpan Sign to start up a new e-signing workflow online. The process takes a few minutes and avoids the sender having to revert to paper documents at any time. It’s also just as easy to start on a windows machine, a Mac, or even an iPhone.
