Got an Idea You Don’t Want Anyone to Talk About? Use eSignatures for Your NDAs

Electronic Signature on NDA

imagerymajestic :

A huge number of people do business via the Internet these days. Operating a website or company can mean that you often need help from third parties, from freelance writers and web designers to marketers and more. If you’re working with a brand new idea that you don’t want just anyone to know about, you’ll want any third parties you bring in to the project to sign an NDA (non-disclosure agreement). eSignatures allow you to make this process fast and easy.

What are eSignatures?

A lot of time is typically spent on administrative duties, including obtaining signatures for specific documents like NDAs. eSignatures allow you to save a ton of time on administrative duties. When you need a signature, you simply create the electronic document and send it to the individual you’re working with. They can read it at their convenience, then “sign” it over the internet and send it back to you. The time saved is significant.

How it Works

When you send your NDA to the individual you plan on working with, they have the option of reading it and then agreeing to the terms as well as adding their “signature.” Their signature can be as simple as them typing their name to the document and then confirming it. They can do so and send the document back within minutes, allowing you to retain important records and save time as you focus on the more important aspects of your business.

Is it Legal and Binding?

Electronic signatures are as legal and binding as traditional signatures, as stated in the ESIGN act of 2000. This act states that documents signed with electronic signatures are as legal and binding as those signed with traditional signatures, as long as individuals are aware that they’re signing a legal document and that proof of the signature is retained. This means that in a court of law, the document signed by an eSignature is just as valid as if the individual were sitting in the same room with you, signing manually.

Using eSignatures for a Non Disclosure Agreement

It’s easier than ever to use eSignatures for a non disclosure agreement. Simply let the individual know what it is you’re having him or her sign. Clearly state in the document what you expect from the individual, and then ensure that they understand that the document they’re signing is a legal document. It can all be accomplished via email within just a few minutes.

The benefits of using eSignatures are massive, from going green to saving time and money. They’re easy to use and are a benefit to any business that implements them. In addition to being legally binding, they’re better for keeping records, for both parties.

Sign In Blue Launches Facebook App Making it Easier to Get Your Documents Digitally Signed Online

Digital Signatures on FacebookSign In Blue, an E-signature company, has just launched a new Facebook app, allowing individuals to send documents via the social networking site and receive digital signatures quickly and easily. As more and more business individuals are turning to Facebook to connect with fellow entrepreneurs and increase their customer base, Sign In Blue is offering a platform that allows those business individuals to get signatures faster than ever before.

“The Sign In Blue Facebook App will open a lot of doors as businesses move more and more of the administrative side of their business to Internet platforms,” says owner Robert Bustamante. “The possibilities are limitless; individuals can have their Facebook friends sign petitions, obtain signatures from customers for various purposes and much more. More and more businesses are starting to understand the importance of Facebook.”

Sign In Blue is the first company to provide an E-signature Facebook app, but they don’t expect to be the last. While the majority of the apps in the Facebook marketplace revolve around games or surveys, more and more businesses are bringing their applications to the Facebook platform. Sign In Blue has created their app on the heels of some other very popular business apps, such as the business profile app, the promotions app, business testimonials apps, and e-commerce and donations apps. The popularity of these suggest that the E-signature application is going to be a successful one, and that users are going to embrace the ability to sign documents right from their Facebook accounts.

E-signatures are as legal and binding as traditional signatures, as stated in the ESIGN act of 2000. The act states that the customer must understand that they’re signing a legal document and must provide a unique signature. The document must be preserved as well, in case it is needed for disputes or conflicts. Sign In Blue confirms more than once that the customer understands what they are signing, gives them the option to physically sign their name or simply type it, and the documents can be stored as long as users have accounts with the company.

How an Accountant Can Utilize Esignatures to Streamline Their Business

Esignatures for Accountants

Esignatures are perfectly legal and an acceptable substitute for a traditional signature. Laws like the ESIGN act of 2000 make esignatures just as legal and binding in a court of law as a traditional signature, so they can be used for anything that would need a signature. Because of this, esignatures can be extremely beneficial to accountants.

What Exactly IS an Esignature?

According to the Electronic Transactions Act, a signature is an electronic sound, symbol or process that is associated with an electronic record, adopted or used by a person with an intent to sign an electronic record. It might be your initials or your typed name, or even a mark that is confirmed as a representation of your signature. Because it’s so easy, many people don’t believe esignatures are completely legal, but in fact, they are just as legal as a traditionally obtained signature.

Forms, Forms and More Forms

Accountants log figures, keep records, and make sure everything is filled out on its own form and tucked away for safekeeping. There is no end to the forms an accountant will need to fill out, or that his or her clients will need to sign. Especially during tax time, an accountant lives and breathes forms that need to be signed by clients in order to proceed. This can take up a lot of time, and can be inconvenient for both the accountant and the clients.

An Accountant’s Biggest Enemy

One of the things that take up so much of an accountant’s time is tracking their clients down for signatures. The accountant typically has to schedule an appointment for the client to come in and sign documents, or has to spend the time to visit the client on his or her schedule to try and obtain signatures. Esignatures alleviate the wasted time and allows accountants to obtain the signatures quickly, without having to worry about conflicting schedules.

How Esignatures Work

When an accountant utilizes esignatures, he or she can send over the documents that need to be signed electronically, so the client can pick it up right from their email. They can then read over the document and sign it electronically, from the comfort of their computer desks, and mail it right back. The whole process doesn’t take more than a few minutes, and each signature is confirmed before the document is sent back to the accountant. This allows clients to sign documents when they have a few extra minutes rather than having to drive over or schedule an appointment with the client.

Whether you’re an accountant, a real estate agent, or any other professional, you can truly benefit from esignatures. You can quickly send documents to clients to have them sign when they have an extra moment, and they can sign them without worrying about scanning and copying or mailing. It’s easy and effective, and perfect for streamlining an accountant’s business.
