How to sign documents with the new SignEasy App for ios7

Our primary focus while redesigning the app was to streamline the signing process. In this post we share with you the UX enhancements made to the new signing flow of SignEasy’s iOS App. Follow the steps below to get through your paperwork in a breeze!

1. Tap and Zoom. Before entering any element, zoom in the area to be filled out, do so by moving your fingers away from each other.  Zooming in will allow you to easily place any element on the page. This feature is specially useful to preview a document before finalizing.

2. Select the type of entry from the new menu tool bar at the bottom. We reduced the number of taps and screens necessary to fill and sign a document. For example, now you can directly tap on the date icon and it will automatically display on the screen. To lock it in place and continue with your document simply tap anywhere on the screen.

3. Resize your entry. To adjust the size of an element simply tap on it and then drag the arrow towards the right or left in order to make the element bigger or smaller.

When Apple introduced iOS7 around the end of 2013, we did not just want to reskin the existing app with the look and feel of iOS7.

5 Reasons to make the switch to a Paperless Office

paperless office



Although the thought would have been inconceivable at one point of time, the sheer magnitude to which technology has developed today makes it almost impractical to use paper in an office. As of today, many large corporations have made the switch to a paperless office while smaller organizations are gradually following this pattern. Before getting to the benefits, let’s take a look at some statistics uncovered by 
The Paperless Project:

  • The average employee spends about 30-40% of his time physically looking for documents
  • Each document wastes an average of 18 minutes spent searching
  • Most documents are typically copied 9-11 times
  • Paper needs grow by 22% a year. This means any given company’s paper will double in 3.3 years.
  • Filing costs average $20 per document.


Going paperless is certainly not an overnight process but the important thing is to start. Consider these 5 reasons to make the switch to a Paperless Office:

1. Improves customer service. Customers want efficiency. Paperless offices allow employees to address customer demands a lot more quickly than their physical counterparts – the longest it takes to retrieve any document is a few seconds.
2. Saves time. It’s common – even uncanny – for offices to misplace documents and for employees to spend hours searching for them. In an age where most companies charge and are charged by the hour, this is extremely undesirable.
3. Brings down costs. Filing cabinets, printer ink cartridges, and even the very paper all cost money and as any large corporation is aware; it’s the little things that add up to big things. Eliminating these costs has the potential to save companies untold fortunes. Copying and distribution is done so efficiently in a paperless office that printer use is reserved for what really needs to be printed.
4. More Secure. Over 70% of all offices in existence would crumble in under a month if a calamity consumed all the documents. There’s barely any room for such a situation in a paperless office where everything is stored in the cloud and backed up in hard drives.
5. Ecofriendly. As important as all the above benefits, paperless offices help contribute to an eco-conscious environment, where the planet and its resources are not taken for granted.

Give some thought to the idea and consider making the switch!

3 eco-friendly tools for healthcare professionals to streamline work processes

healthcare

Efficient management of resources is a topic that needs to be urgently addressed by the healthcare industry around the globe. In the US alone, hospitals and medical facilities generate 6600 tons of waste per day, the majority comprised of landfill waste such as paper and cardboard boxes. Luckily, technology can contribute to cut down on many of these costs, specially those related to paperwork.

Here are 3  eco-friendly ways for healthcare professionals to streamline work processes while significantly cutting down on paper related costs:

1) Online scheduling of appointments

Centres such as the Kings College Hospital have been implementing strict deadlines to bring about a paperless environment, using handheld computers to manage patient profiles and appointments. They even send reminders to patients via SMS, providing a telephone number in case the patient needs to cancel.

2) Electronic Medical Records

EMRs can have a massive impact on long term cost reduction; unfortunately only about 20-25% of hospitals in the USA have adopted this method. SAP Clinical Task Tracker is a widely used mobile app that allows patient tracking and maintaining EMRs.

3) Digital Signing

Physician patient records, hospital discharge papers and insurance billing releases are often printed out and signed on paper. Employing digital document signing methods such as SignEasy can reduce these unnecessary costs.

Until recently, many healthcare institutions were reluctant to make changes towards a paperless workplace due to the implications of the transition process. However they’ve started to realize that in the long run, this is a small price to pay for the benefits of an increasing paperless system.

 

BENEFITS FOR HEALTHCARE INSTITUTIONS GOING PAPERLESS

1) Cut in costs

A recent case study shows a hospital that went paperless – the South eastern Indiana Health Organization – and saw both a 57 percent user adoption rate increase and a 50 percent cut in costs in three months.

2) Increased efficiency of the medical staff

A paperless system will cut down on wasteful time as medical professionals are able to easily locate critical documents through a quick digital search. Apps such as SAP and Evernote allow physicians to store details digitally, making it much simpler to retrieve records about any patient in moments.

3) Simple maintenance

Paper storage involves filing cabinets, files and a number of other accessories all of which consume a lot of space making it difficult to manage. In addition, wear and tear over time takes its toll on files. Since digital files are stored in a virtual environment, none of these factors need to be considered.

 

Switching to a paperless setting also helps decrease the facility’s carbon footprint, which has become a serious problem that institutions can no longer ignore. The fact is, going paperless can make a huge impact on many fronts, give it a try!

How is an eSignature App relevant during the holiday season?

The holiday season is here and whether you are traveling for business or to enjoy a peaceful family vacation, receiving a document which requires your signature is an increasingly common scenario. Not so long ago this would have implied lots of stress and quite possibly a change of travel plans. But today many things are changing and it’s important to stay up to date with technology and its ways to increase the quality of our lives.

So, how is an eSignature App relevant during the holiday season?

Rather than running behind people, scanners or fax machines, an online document signing app gracefully allows you to close end of the year sales and contracts with remarkable simplicity and without having to change your travel plans.  As you wait to board your plane, you can sign and send back a document within minutes! Don’t take our word for it, read what our users have to say:

SignEasy joins the Microsoft Ventures Accelerator Program

You come across a meaningful problem and you work on the solution. If this problem is also being faced by a greater portion of mankind, your work acquires a greater purpose and the journey just gets more exciting and fun. This has been the underlying motivation for me and the people who have worked at SignEasy for the last 3 years: Solving a real problem!

I still remember the summer of 2009 when the idea struck me while running around for a printer and fax machine on a beach vacation. When we launched SignEasy App as a consumer focused App for signing documents on the go in July 2010, it was the first of a kind to get a glance from people “Wow! Signing documents from your mobile is so simple!”

We firmly believe that paper should not get in the way of anyone’s business or personal lives and hence have been at work to deliver the best-in-class mobile signature solution for consumers and businesses of all kinds, from a venture capitalist in Boston to a telecommunications firm in Utah to a medical researcher in South Africa.

Over the last year, we have seen an increasing demand to use SignEasy from small and medium businesses all over the world. Companies are streamlining their operations by exchanging time sensitive documents between office teams and field staff.

In the continuation of our journey to help businesses be more efficient and productive while making the lives of people easier and hassle-free, we wanted to work with a set of mentors, advisors and industry experts who believe in our mission of making the world paperless day by day, business by business and person by person.

Today, we are happy to announce that SignEasy joins the Microsoft Ventures Accelerator Program.

Microsoft Ventures Accelerator is one of the best accelerators worldwide with extensive resources, strong ties to diverse industries and access to a large network of entrepreneurs and mentors. Since the launch of the Accelerator programs two years ago, 114 startups have graduated, and nearly all that sought a subsequent round of funding received it. Considering the nature of our ambitions and the global appeal of SignEasy, it made perfect sense for us to apply to this world class program. We are very excited to be part of the Microsoft Accelerator’s 2013 winter batch in Bangalore and we look forward to make it easier, simpler and more convenient for the world to do business.

SignEasy announces support for filenames in any international language

International_characters_2

 

Every day, thousands of documents are signed and processed with SignEasy from over 100 countries worldwide. Taking this into account, it is not surprising that one of the most requested features was the ability for SignEasy to handle filenames containing their native alphabets or scripts. In this respect, we made it a priority to take actions which would ensure our international customers could finish their paperwork in their language of choice.

Happily, today SignEasy announces support for filenames in any international language.

Tell me more …

  • Because people across the globe do business in different languages, we realized our non-English customers were having a tough time uploading their documents into the app, and that was because our system could not recognize the international characters of the file name.
  • It was a big challenge for our engineering team who worked over 2 months figuring out a way for our users to be able to import documents in any world language.
  • With our latest update release, users from all over the world can now import their files in Spanish, Russian, Chinese, Korean, Japanese, and even Arabic and Hebrew which are read and written from right to left.

So go ahead, upload any document into SignEasy hassle-free, irregardless of the characters included in your document’s name. If you find any language that we don’t support, feel free to email me at knunez at getsigneasy.com.

Happy Signing!

Now sign password protected PDF documents with SignEasy

Sign password protected files with SignEasy App

SignEasy is currently the first and only mobile eSignature solution that allows users to sign password protected PDF documents. Now all your important documents such as W-9 forms, real estate contracts and confidential loan documents can be signed and sent within a few minutes!

During April this year, SignEasy saw an increase in new users as well as in customer emails. Tax season came and with it, the awareness of alternate ways of filing the so-called “paperwork”. Our inbox had a common theme: New users were reporting issues with their tax documents being processed by the app. The root cause was that many of the tax related forms were password protected files for viewing and modifications, and hence, were not supported by SignEasy App. Our engineers set out to fix the problem and we are happy to announce that these password protected files are now supported by the iOS version of SignEasy.

People are adopting new habits and SignEasy is happy to contribute to a more efficient, conscious, paperless world. Thank you for being part of the change.

Happy Signing!
