I know for my father and for other people that work in business that one of the most annoying things that can be sent to you is a document that needs to be signed. It consumes time and it takes effort as it requires you to print the document, sign it, scan the signed document, and then send it back. No one wants to go through all that trouble, and now we don’t have to anymore.
HelloSign is an app that allows you to easily sign any document on your smart phone or tablet. It allows you to make fast, secure, and legally binding e-signatures. It makes signing a document less of a chore and helps you get to the things that you really want to do.
It takes the “sigh” out of “signing”.
HelloSign also allows you to sign documents directly to Google Docs. It is by far the fastest way to sign documents, contracts, NDA’s and other agreements. You can complete applications faster, get approvals faster, and close deals faster. The app has video tutorials, FAQ databases and “contact us” forms in one easy to reach place, but the application is so simple and self explanatory that even people who consider themselves technologically impaired find it easy to use.
HelloSign will change the way we spend our time behind the desk. No longer having to deal with all the process of copying, signing, scanning and faxing will make our work life just a little bit easier. There are many great things about the app, but the best part is that it’s free.
This is a super cool tool actually! I also know the struggle of having to print things out and signing them, it just takes too much time. This would be a great thing for schools to later in the future look into if they are planning on going paperless. I am also a big fan of their slogan! It is super short but has so much power!
I remember hearing the constant sound of faxes in my house growing up as my father had mountain after mountain of paper work sent to him, so i can sympathize with how annoying “paper” work can be. However, I would like to raise some concerns over the security of this technology. If a sensitive document, say business contract, could be hacked into and stolen it would create a serious lack of trust and, in turn, a stigma that this whole concept is vulnerable. Approach this technology with caution, it definitely has potential.
This makes office life a lot easier. It seems as though it could potentially be taken advantage of. I don’t know if I would trust it though.
I love the idea of HelloSign! Filling out paperwork for college and grants was always such a hassle, this would have made my life a lot easier. This is a great app, seeing that almost everyone has a smart phone or a tablet. I would be a little skeptical using it, due to security issues, but with the correct security approach I could see myself using HelloSign in the future.
I like the idea of the app as well, however, a concern would be, putting money behind the signature over the internet, and being able to validate the real signatures. With the advancement of hackers, and the new technology, I would definitely be concerned with putting my word and even potentially money behind this. Yet, if they have the security to prove to their customers, this could be a great tool for entrepreneurs.
Very cool! I know that this is a newly offered option when doing taking care of college loans on line. It was a HUGE help, saved time and all together sped up the loan process. Some may be skeptical because it is online, but I think that it’s an awesome and clever innovation (and thus far has given me no problems!) Nice post!
great app idea that found a solution for an annoying problem. You know this is a good idea because it fixes an issue that inconveniences many.
This sounds GREAT! I am sure that most business people would love to not have to deal with the hassle of signing every individual paper. I am very curious of how this tool actually works..
So for the past year and a half I’ve worked at a rock climbing gym, where liability is the name of the game. Our waivers were almost entirely paperless, as signatures came either on a signature pad in the gym, or e-signing online. A couple thoughts in response the concerns raised:
First, e-signing is a totally legitimate, legally binding way of doing things. To unlawfully e-sign for someone is the same as signing someone else’s name on a physical document. It’s easy, hard to verify, and fraudulent. The fact that it’s online doesn’t really change anything.
Second, if someone is sending you a digital copy of anything, hackers can get to it (hypothetically). The method you use to sign it doesn’t matter, if you’re worried about hackers, then mail a physical copy.
Overall, a very cool app that I’m definitely gonna look into more.
