Law firms can significantly reduce administration costs, present a modern image to clients and close contracts in moments using Legalesign software.
Online signature has taken time to pass muster for legal firms. But with wide acceptance for e-Signature now established in society adopting it can immediately cut costs and time for legal businesses as well as increase sales.
Legalesign includes Adobe certified PDF documents to ensure the integrity of your PDF for the long term (with 'long term validation' often written as 'LTV' in the certificate details).
Certified documents cannot be altered without breaking certification and contain the surety of an externally verified datestamp at signing. It also demonstrates that the document must have passed through the Legalesign signing process. This type of certificate can only be stored and used from a highly secure hardware security module (HSM) to ensure that it cannot be used fraudulently.
Some law firms need to close their client contracts rapidly in order to start progressing in good time and minimize administration costs where client turnover is high. E-signature software is the ideal way to do this. Sending contracts takes just moments eliminating almost all admin time to set up and send out new documents.
Contract control is often a critical matter for law firms and with contracts often iterating quite quickly, centralised control is a valuable aspect of Legalesign to ensure only the correct contracts are in use.
With clear listing you can also quickly see which contracts clients have signed without consulting individual staff members and the associated dig through their email boxes.
Legalesign is an ISO27001 certified company. The software has a large breadth of features for many kinds of signing situations. You can specify the content of emails, the methods by which a person can sign, change the 'signing statements' which signers must agree before completing, and many more. Almost all aspects of Legalesign can be customized. In addition, you can brand up emails and signing pages so your brand is successfully communicated.
