Adobe Sign

When working often with contracts and the need to keep track of a lot of different clients, Adobe Sign is really helpful. Early in my business when I didn't have a large number of clients and I did most everything in person, it would have been a more unnecessary luxury for me. Now that I do a lot of work online and my clients are reaching farther and farther and more regularly hire me from over an hour drive away and sometimes out of state, I've found it extremely helpful when I can't meet in person. I've even moved to doing all contracts through Adobe Sign, even if we are meeting in person

Smartwaiver

Smartwaiver is well suited for any service that requires a liability waiver be completed. I appreciate the ease of use when completing the waiver, the reduction in storage both prior and post waiver and the ability to have it in multiple languages. We currently have spanish and french as well on our tablets.

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.

  • integrates with our reservation system. We can connect Fareharbor and assign waivers to each group and they populate in the reservation.
  • Smartwaiver collects each guests email address and populates it into our Fareharbor system allowing us to connect w/ each guest that joined us not just the guest who set up the reservation
  • Waiver searching is very simple with Smartwaiver. We can search by name or email and the guests information pulls up for quick search.

Cons

  • I would like to see some development to the building of forms, we recently found it quite difficult designing a form using the Echosign coding in word because the size of the field is reliant on the number of characters in the field name. Perhaps this could be altered so we could just type in the number to represent the size of the field.
  • I would like to be able to validate a form as it is being completed, depending on responses provided by a client. Essentially an interactive form.
  • The agreement quite commonly finds it's way into a clients junk email.

  • We accept the waiver in the office once it's been completed. there is sometimes a 2 step process to "accept" the waiver which can be time consuming when you have 20 to accept.
  • the only issue we have is when we have internet issues, but that's not a smartwaiver issue
  • and you can't fix "stupid" - the Smartwaiver process is super simple but people choose not to read or follow simple instructions

Renewing our license is a no brainer, the system pays for itself when compared to postal costs. No to mention the fact it is a more effective and efficient way for us to get clients on board. We have integrated Echosign with our case management system because it has played such a key part in driving our business forward.

I would have rated this a 9 or greater had they not had had such critical outages. They have taken steps to resolve this so I may come in and revise this

Support

They have improved this in the latter half of 2012 adding more online help which they didn't have previously. With regards to the support by a person, sometimes answers seem delayed but again this has improved in the latter half of 2012. 2013 Update:Support has improved over the last year as has the downtime however there still is some downtime; more than there should be if they have full data center redundancy, which they should but I don't know if they do. I still don't have access to what appears to be a support portal however that is likely due to my support level

Online Training

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.

Implementation

Adobe Sign8.0
Based on 5 answers
We opted not to use the Salesforce.com integration however that was our internal business decision and it was the wrong one but that was our issue, not the vendor. Whether you implement using just the web interface or both the web interface and the Salesforce.com integration, they are both easily done

Alternatives Considered

The price is much more managable for eSign, we can find all of the old things we sent out, we can see the history of a document; so if a client says they never saw the proposal it is easy for anyone here to go in and either confirm or deny the claims of a client ans we also have the ability to prove to them someone on their email account saw the email.

I've been approached by a couple other companies, the most recent would be Wherewolf. They reached out, but sadly they require only an ipad to use their system which isn't possible for us since we purchased simple tablets. They have a bit more complexity with utilizing the guest's information after the tour, but I think that's something Smartwaiver will move to eventually.

Return on Investment

  • We are a M&A firm and need every buyer to sign a document in order to see our deals. With over 400 deals on the market, this is a LOT of documents to be signed for viewing. Echosign has had an extremely positive impact on making this system more efficient. Every deal has a respective link with its Confidentiality Agreement and is able to be sent out, signed, returned to the respective director, and attached back into our CRM. Amazing.
  • Employee efficiency has also drastically increased. A 250 person company spread around the nation formerly relying on email, scanning, and faxes has now transitioned into a more technologically advanced (though still far from it) company relying on the signature of a link. Our leader boards also push directors to use this system.
  • Customer Service has also been positively impacted. We have a cc of every document come to a standardized inbox for monitoring. Any time a client or buyer calls questioning why they haven't received a response, we are able to look in that inbox to verify whether something was actually signed or not. We've gained a tighter reign on quality control and it definitely shows in our customer satisfaction.

  • reduction in paper purchasing costs
  • reduction in storage space needed for paper waivers
  • having the waiver on file should a guest come back out in less than 7 days, can be easily confirmed by a quick search in Smartwaiver
