Have You Heard of Electronic Signatures?

Not too long ago, I had a document to sign for a company I was working with, but not a paper document, but one over email where I used an electronic signature. I had never seen this before, but thought it was a quick and easy way of that company doing business. After all, they didn't have to fax me over papers and I didn't have to fax anything back.Nor did I have to print anything out,but my copies I decided to keep for my own records.

One such company that I've seen use this is EchoSign. How it works is that you, as a business, would email your document, have the other end e-sign and send back.All parties automatically receive a PDF copy of the signed document the moment it is signed, and they do the filing.
Alot of businesses are using electronic signatures now to get business moving along faster.
Electronic signatures are everywhere now- from your post office, where you sign for packages, to electronic signatures for taxes and insurance.It's a sign of our changing times.
