I sign contracts on a weekly basis. Ever since my business became primarily an online business, I have been searching for additional options for the seemingly endless printing of documents, signing them, scanning them and then emailing them back to the person who originally sent them.
I used to have a boss whose signature I had on my computer. When a document needed to be signed, I would just insert his signature into the document and go. Seriously, not very secure at all, right?
This is often a frustrating and time consuming way to do things. I have often thought that there MUST be an easier way to do this. In fact, I know that there is an easier way to do this.
Enter signature validation which is a pretty cool product from Adobe. Now with things like being able to validate your signature online, digital signatures are becoming a much more acceptable form of signing documents.
Have you ever signed a document digitally? It is actually a very easy process. You click on the designated place on the screen and up pops a verification where you certify that you are indeed who you say you are. Once this is done, your signature is then accepted on the document.
I find this to be one of the easiest and most effective way to sign documents nowadays.
