Likelihood to Recommend

Legalesign

Legalesign is well-suited for sending out documents to be signed, especially if multiple signatures are needed. Our sales team has had a lot of success utilizing Legalesign when sending contracts to potential clients. Additionally, it's a great option for organizations wanting to send out official offer letters to be signed. Legalesign is not well suited if you're looking for a long-term storage system for documents. I would recommend downloading your documents once they're signed and storing them within a secure system of your own.

Every time we have a new client we send a consumer notice out that allows clients to easily “acknowledge” receipt by virtually signing the form. Likewise for all residential and commercial leases and agreements of sale, PDFfiller has been a lifesaver. What used to be a major time suck to complete a simple form, for example, a seemingly simple task which should have been the easiest part of completing a sea always took a tremendous amount of time, because PDFs are simply not editable. Contracts would need to be filled out with pen and paper. They were hard to read, required scanners and/or fax machines, and took tons of time away from more productive income-generating activities. PDFfiller finally solves all of these problems for us.

Pros

Legalesign

  • Legalesign provides good customer support and all customers are assigned an account manager. This is really important because they can help with the customization of your forms.
  • Legalesign has both single signer and multi-signer options for different signing on needs. It also has robust email and notifications.

  • Its user interface makes it a very easy-to-operate app. Without having adequate technical knowledge any user can operate it easily.
  • It works very fine on adding text on any part of a PDF document and It also allows users to delete pre written text from a pdf file.
  • It can also convert PDF files in other office formats with good quality.

Cons

Legalesign

  • Archives - after a certain amount of time, documents are archived. It's difficult to determine when this happens. If you need to access an archived item, Legalesign says it will take 'several hours' to retrieve the document. I've waited up to 12 hours for a document to be pulled. This is inconveniently and a bit odd.
  • The dashboard can be confusing - there is a timeline with your 'recent' documents, but I've never been able to determine how it shows documents. They're always out of order and some new, some old. It can be confusing.
  • Overall, I've had issues with the internal timeline of this software. There are dropdown menus for choosing the dates of the documents you want to see (7 days, 30 days, last month, etc.), but I'm often missing documents and have to perform several searches for them. Other members of the team have had this issue, as well.
  • Like the archive issue mentioned previously, there have been times when the platform has moved very slowly. Documents will often take time to load, even if they're just a 2-page Word document. This does not appear to be a connectivity issue.
  • The dashboard itself can just be a bit confusing. There is a lot of information available, but the algorithm that determines what is displayed is strange, and it's hard to determine what you're seeing/why you're seeing it. There are settings you can play with, which has been helpful.
  • Although it hasn't happened often, I have had candidates/new employees not recognize an email coming via Legalesign. Document emails look a bit like spam, so I've had candidates ignore them. As far as I know, these are not customizable. I ensure recipients know the email is coming.

  • Manually resending the document was a feature that seems to have been taken away.
  • Templates for Send To Sign letters. I basically have to type the same information over and over again each time. I was hoping that it would save it but it doesn't seem to have that function
  • Signer cannot save the document once it has been signed. I have to make sure that there is a note within the email that states that I will send them a copy.
  • Wish it had a way to send me a copy of the email I sent.

I have not had to contact support. I gave it a high rating, so my non-use of this service would not drag this rating down. I am assuming that their support team would be great, easy to work with, friendly, knowledgeable, accurate, and prompt with assistance with their product. Should I have experience in the future in this area, I would be happy to re-evaluate this portion of the review.

Alternatives Considered

Legalesign

Legalesign is very similar in functionality to DocuSign. The one advantage that DocuSign has over Legalesign is brand recognition, which is important because so many spam/phishing scams today use fake document signing to lure in victims.

I have used other editors such as Adobe Acrobat and, in my opinion, for the money Adobe costs, if the need is just to edit pdf I would go with PDFfiller. It is a really easy tool to use. It's learning curve is not that steep and it does pretty much everything I need from it.

Return on Investment

Legalesign

  • Legalesign has had a positive impact on our ability to sign new employees. It's fast and easy - which is essential when hiring top talent.
  • The only negative impact would be the slow pace we've experienced when trying to pull previous documents. However, we do not use this platform as our only storage option, so this issue does not arise often.
  • Legalesign allows for the seamless transfer of information with prospects, which has a large impact on our ROI. Having a system like this makes getting signatures from new clients quick - essentially for a busy sales team!

  • It has saved lots of time over the course of the days, weeks and months, but I don't know if I can quantify it in terms of dollars and cents.
  • It's difficult to imagine what I would have to do to respond to all the detailed paperwork that I'm inundated with?
