The hit television series Game of Thrones and Line of Duty attract millions of fans. But before filming could commence hundreds of hired film extras were required to sign an electronic non-disclosure agreement provided by Legalesign.

The Extras Dept is one of Legalesign’s long standing clients and uses hundreds of film extras at any time. The agency has more than 20,000 extras on its books serving films, TV and commercials throughout Ireland. Its other successful TV shows include The Fall, The Frankenstein Chronicles, Krypton and Derry Girls.

Fast Mobile Signing

Emma Sweeney, (pictured above) Manager at The Extras Dept, said,

We work with hundreds of extras a day, but they should not be on the film set until they have signed a non-disclosure agreement. With Legalesign’s secure electronic signature we are able to do this on site using iPads within a matter of minutes, ensuring valuable time is not lost.

For us the beauty of Legalesign is its speed, ease of use, reliability and being able to work paperless. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it as the modern, fast and efficient way of working for businesses that require a fast turnaround of signatures.

Businesses and organisations are increasingly choosing to work paperless, opting for our electronic signature software that is easy to set up and enables clients to track their agreements in real time and work more efficiently.

We have provided electronic agreement software to The Extras Dept for two-and-a-half years and are delighted at their high electronic signing rate, 86% within the hour. Being able to sign on a mobile device, such as the iPad, allows them extra flexibility and a swift and smooth turnaround of document signing so they can begin their working day. Their fantastic response rates demonstrate the successful outcomes that are achievable for business who need a swift turnaround of agreement signatures, ensuring they work faster and more efficiently.
