You will sign a healthy proportion of your contracts on someone else’s e-signature solution.
There are hundreds of e-signature solutions out there.
There are therefore always going to be non-standard avenues for contracts to come into your business. As great as integrations and automations are, they are brittle. You can’t set them up for every single avenue.
If you don’t have a clear backup plan for getting contracts signed on a non-standard e-signature platform, those contracts are going to get lost.
The best solution by far is using a contract database with an email integration. Email is where e-signature solutions send contracts once they’ve been signed. Email is universal - everyone uses it. It’s the zero-effort option.
Simply forward the contract as an attachment to your contract database and get on with your day.
