Chose Foxit eSign
Adobe Sign, despite coming from one of the best known brands in software, is the most frustrating and poorly-supported platform I've ever used.

HelloSign and PandaDoc are good platforms - although the cost a bit more than eSignGenie, they are ahead on some features (not all)... …
Chose Foxit eSign
eSign Genie has all of the features we needed when compared to other services but at a price point that better suited for our budget.
Chose Foxit eSign
eSign Genie made contacting customer support way easier than any other platform! I was able to get my questions answered and negotiate a contract within hours instead of weeks.

Foxit eSign
eSign Genie has completely streamlined our tedious document process and helps us to easily manage our documents from signature to delivery and even with ongoing storage. This enhancement saves us time, money, and headaches and has been a true lifesaver for our organization and for our customers. I highly recommend it!

It is so easy to create templates and then send them as documents for signature. It's helpful that our whole team can see the documents so that we all know what still needs to be sent. We use the HubSpot integration which is helpful, but it could use some additional development

Pros
Foxit eSign
  • The learning curve is faster compared to the last software we used.
  • It is easier to set up the templates and email messages so that the text boxes line up seamlessly.
  • It is quicker to send agreements and to follow up if they are not returned in the allotted timeframe.
  • Making changes to the documents is fast and easy.

  • PandaDoc allows our team to create and send detailed sales proposals and quotes with the use of their templates.
  • The use of collaborative editing is also beneficial because our team is able to have multiple users edit and comment on documents simultaneously.
  • Document tracking is useful because we are able to receive real-time notifications and updates on the proposal process.

Cons
Foxit eSign
  • I have no complaints about this software whatsoever. I started using Echosign years ago until Adobe bought them out and tripled the price and cut features. Then, I went to Docusign that was not very user friendly and the customer support is NON-EXISTENT. eSign Genie is wonderful!

  • The automatic snapping of added fields in templates could be toggleable to more easily place fields where they need to be
  • When fields are duplicated, the generated Field IDs can get long (e.g. Text_1, Text_1_1, Text_1_1_1, etc)
  • Loading screens are sometimes long

The tool is inexpensive and good value. We don't need a ton of eSign capabilities and this one provides what we need for a low cost given our low volume.

The reason I gave it a rating of 7 is because it's probable, but not for sure. This is because there are a few little things we don't love about pandadoc. Mostly that there is not conditional logic such as: they must either fill this field out OR this one. Also it's a little pricey. But we'll probably stay because it's good enough and a pain to switch to something new

Once you get the hang of it, it's very easy to use. There can be a slightly steep learning curve to get fully in on the system. The new editor v2 has really improved usability and allows us to collaborate on documents simultaneously. Once the templates and library items are set up, a new document, whether it be a sales or HR document, takes very little time to complete.

The documents load quickly for the most part but sometimes if there are larger documents with a high number of variables it could take a bit longer to get the document to show up. Most of the time the document comes on the screen relatively quickly allowing for quick access to documents to be edited and sent out.

Support Rating
Foxit eSign
eSign Genie has live chat support virtually twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. They also have phone and email support as well. On the few occasions that I have had to contact support, they were very helpful, knowledgeable, and friendly. It's been a pleasure working with the folks at eSign Genie.

Recently I could not upload a pdf to a contract - support was very responsive and easy to work with. They got back to me the next day with an apparent fix - however when I opened the document nothing had changed. I then could not respond to the rep who was helping me because it was a "no-reply address", the problem still has not been solved and we had to make alternate arrangements to get this to the client. Never had it happen before and was only with this one contract.

There is no implementation at all. You just sign up, upload your documents, set up the fields to complete, and you are done!

Implementation was before the time I was here at Riafox, however, support has been great in assisting to merge spaces and upgrade to 2.0 Editor.

HelloSign and PandaDoc are good platforms - although the cost a bit more than eSignGenie, they are ahead on some features (not all)... depending on your exact use case, I'd consider them. However, for my simple use case, eSigngenie is the clear winner!

PandaDoc and DocuSign are very similar in functionality and design, but I prefer to use PandaDoc's interface. It is so easy to use and I prefer PandaDoc's interface and UI. It feels a little cleaner and a little more professional to me when compared with DocuSign's interface and UI design

Return on Investment
Foxit eSign
  • eSign Genie was the most affordable option of all vendors which helped us to stay within our project budget.
  • We were able to purchase a relatively small number of document folders which was more appropriate to our needs than say DocuSign which required something like 1,000 documents minimum.
  • The ease of use of eSign Genie helps us to implement new research studies without having to expend a lot of person hours to set things up.

  • It has helped increase our sales productivity by allowing us to get contracts back more quickly.
  • Has helped with employee efficiency in contract writing.
  • It has helped our company find contract writing mistakes before they get to our clients and cause confusion.
  • The one negative would be the increase in costs associated with using this software, which seems to increase each year at renewal.
