Adobe Sign

Adobe eSign has worked for every contract our company has issued for the past 3 years. From simple one signature consulting agreements, to multiple page, multiple signer partnership agreements and MNDAs, we find the program meets all of our needs. Clients receiving our contracts rarely ever have any trouble viewing, downloading and signing the document. We have not found an instance for which eSign has not worked.

SigningHub

SigningHub worked well for me for collecting digital signatures on contracts from independent contractors. It's well suited for both small businesses (like mine) and bigger businesses since you can create a specific workflow for each sort of document you upload. It's also great for storing the signed and master documents. However, it may not be appropriate in certain industries with specific data security rules. Check with the regulators of your industry before using (lawyers, I'm talking to you...)

Pros

  • Multiple signatures on one form.
  • Providing an audit trail that stands up in court.
  • Easy tracking of where you stand when needing multiple forms signed.
  • Ease of form creation.

  • You can add individual documents for each person that needs to sign something.
  • You can upload documents you use over and over and prep them within SigningHub.
  • You can allow SigningHub to store them and you can download copies if needed.
  • You're notified by email when the signing process is complete.
  • You can limit the amount of time that the signor will have access to the document.
  • You can create a workflow for each document.

Cons

  • I do a lot of widgets within EchoSign and as far as I can tell there is no way to go back and edit the document if a change needs to be made without being required to redo the whole widget. Unlike uploading a document and having the capability of editing it once it is saved, widgets are a one time save and hope it is 100% correct. This gets particularly annoying when I am turning a 20 page document with lots of required and non required fields into a widget, one mistake means redoing the whole thing.
  • It seems there would be an easier process for archiving documents. A one or two click process would be nice and much easier for people I train to remember and grasp.
  • It may be due to my skill level but seems having more than one signer where one is optional gets a little tedious and difficult when it spans a large number of documents.

  • I found setting up a workflow for each different document a little confusing.
  • I'd get errors from time to time when prepping a document. This usually happened when I was inserting a date field or a signature field (which are fairly important fields for contracts).
  • The one time I needed help and contacted the company, the representative made me feel like I was dumb.

The main reason that we may not is because several of our franchisees use Android tablets in the field and there is no Echosign app currently. If we didn't have this factor it would be a no brainer to resign.

Online Training

Based on 1 answer
The best types of training are well integrated into the product and Echosign does this well. As mentioned earlier in my review - there are some areas of functionality that can be difficult to understand ("only I sign") for the novice user.Other areas such as macro usage, bulk signature and so on were easily learned and understood via the online tools.

Make sure you set aside enough time to get properly trained on the system. We needed to act quickly on our initial use of this product and I did not have the time to go through all the proper training so it was basically go in and learn. I think it would have been much easier had I been given the time by the company to learn everything first.

Alternatives Considered

Docusign. We perceived that Docusign was strongest in the real estate market and might have more professional services. By contrast Echo sign doesn’t have any. However, I felt that Docusign makes people adopt their signature online out of the gate and creates a very different user experience. I think this makes the user uncomfortable. I also think their set-up a is a lot more confusing. It looks very legalistic in comparison to Echosign. By contrast, Echosign seems more user friendly. The style feels lighter like Mac vs. Windows

I've used DocuSign and Adobe Acrobat DC in the past. DocuSign is nice because it easily integrates into Word, but it's also a bit pricey for a small business who may not use it all that much. Acrobat is great for signatures, but documents signed are stored on your own hard drive. Whereas, they're stored on SigningHub's end

Return on Investment

  • Higher quality orders are being submitted. Previously, we had a lot of problems with missing pages on contracts and clients writing on contracts, both of which could cause orders to be rejected. In general document integrity is really important. It helps assure to a sales rep that their order will be accepted.
  • No lost revenue. It reduces the risk of a contract being rejected in a quarter. Previously, we had a 1-2% contract rejection rate and now it’s practically zero.
  • There is a staff time benefit of not having to check documents that come through Echosign. You don’t have to count pages etc. For my staff, it probably saved her 10% of the time.

  • It was very affordable for a small business. I could use it for unlimited documents for a very modest monthly fee.
  • It could handle an unlimited number of documents.
  • Document retrieval is easy.
