The nature of electronic and usual signatures is quite the same – both of them are handwritten autographs of a person used to verify documents they sign. However, the difference between e-signature and its more traditional counterpart lies in the way they are written– with the help of an electronic device and specified software or on paper. E-signatures are completely equal to usual ones from a legal point of view, meaning that they unite the advantages of digital document exchange with the credibility of traditional signatures. So how do you get full use of e-signatures for your business? Through the agency of SignNow, of course!
