Ready to Party? Celebrate Electronic Signatures – Laserfiche

It’s never too late to plan a party. Tomorrow is National ESIGN Day, intended to commemorate, celebrate, and encourage the use of electronic signatures.

Sourced through from:

This is something I saw on Google+. I am someone who loves the idea of e-signatures. It really does speed up the process. Since I have a lousy printer and a bad scanner (I usually have to use my smartphone to scan instead), e-signing is just logical. I think part of the issue is that people think that an "ink" signature–something that denotes actual handwriting does two things. First, it shows some sort of proof that theoretically the signer has actually read what they are signing. Second, a signature shows some sort of authenticity that it’s an actual person that is acknowledging the document. Let me tell you, most people have scribbles for signatures, and in some cases, others write the signature on their behalf. That’s been done for decade before e-signatures were done. I’ve created a jpg of my signature, so I can use my actual signature electronically without having to print, sign, and scan again. Not everyone does this. 


What do you think about e-signatures? I think it’s a fascinating topic in this day and age.
