A sales professional lives a dual life—swift and agile while pitching the value proposition to a prospect, but held back by paperwork when sealing the deal. With multiple prospects and opportunities in the pipeline, a sales professional encounters a great deal of paperwork and the print-fill-sign-scan routine every day. On an average, sales folks spend more than one-third (36%) of their time on administrative tasks, which leaves them with less time to focus on what matters the most – closing deals.
A simple switch to electronic signatures can help sales professionals get past all these roadblocks and do what they do best – close deals. Here’s how electronic signatures benefit sales professionals.
After a contract is written up, getting it signed by the client and all the associated parties can take days or weeks. By choosing electronic signatures to get the deal through this last leg, you can cut this time to hours and reduce the time to revenue.
By making paperwork less burdensome and using electronic signatures that let the client sign sales contracts anywhere, anytime and from their preferred device, you create a smooth and efficient experience for the customer. That’s why 68% of best-in-class sales teams have made the switch to electronic signatures to improve customer experience and close deals faster.
Electronic signatures allow sales professionals to take their attention off paperwork and operational tasks and focus on the key outcomes—building a healthy pipeline, improving the lead-to-win funnel and growing revenue.
51% of sales leaders admit that documents are either misfiled or lost, and 46% of them say that they aren’t sure they have copies of all the signed agreements. With a huge deal of paperwork around, getting a visibility into the status of sales documents and maintaining them becomes an operational challenge. Electronic signatures free up sales teams from this burden by completing the last mile in an end-to-end digitized process.
