Digitally signing a document


  • The time for physical signatures is over. Say goodbye to all your paper documents. eSignatures are here.
  • In this post, we will be taking you through different ways you can eSign your document

Electronic signature, or eSignature, or eSign is a fast, legally secure, highly economical and environment friendly way of digitally signing agreements, forms and other documents. With eSign, you no longer need to spend valuable time and resources to gather your signatories in one place. With Leegality, all this is just one click away.

But why is signing a document electronically so important?

The old physical method of signing a document involved visiting the desired stakeholders in person with the document and collect their signatures one by one. This process adds significant business costs:

  • Higher TAT for key business processes
  • Employees spend time doing paperwork instead of core work
  • Terrible customer/user experience
  • Legal risk and damage
  • Environmental damage

While eSign is just ONE leg of the entire document execution process - it is the critical legal event that converts a document from a draft into a binding agreement. Given the business costs, it’s critical that businesses incorporate eSign instead.

With eSign:

  • Slash turnaround time to minutes
  • Employees spend only a few minutes daily on paperwork
  • Customers/users can sign anywhere, anytime as per their convenience
  • Your documents are more secure
  • You help the environment
