There are many reasons for companies to build eSignatures into their applications including better customer experience, cost savings and the ability to scale.
DocuSign, a leading global eSignature service, has announced upcoming enhancements to the DocuSign Trust Network which includes a new DocuSign Identify Proofing API. DocuSign already provides an Enterprise API that allows developers to integrate the DocuSign eSignature service with websites and third-party applications.
Everyone can relate to the hassles and time wasting caused by the printing, signing, scanning, mailing or faxing of documents that require signatures; not to mention the added carbon footprint due to the reams of wasted paper. It seems such a laborious process for something that should really take a few seconds. But thanks to technology, online document signing is now a reality and the world is once again as it should be. SignNow is one of these document signing applications. It makes it possible for users to sign their documents instantly, from wherever they are. SignNow's API also makes it possible for developers to integrate this functionality with other applications.
The Signinghub API helps accomplish something that looks simple (see image below) but is tricky to do securely: digitally sign a document. The API, using REST-based web services with XML responses, makes its possible to incorporate digital signing into your application that is based on the Public Key Infrastructure.
Tired of physical signatures interrupting your document workflows? HelloSign released the HelloSign API that allows developers to integrate eSignatures into websites, apps, or company processes. HelloSign's creators were first bothered by paper's inefficiency and wastefulness, and the irritation led to HelloFax.
We have all heard it before: “Just print it, sign it, and fax it over.” That saying that brings visions of typewriters to mind. It’s one step ahead of vacuum tube document transfer, but without that cool wooshing effect. It is slightly better when you can print the form, fill it out in hard copy, and then scan it back in so it can be emailed; This is still a little silly. Agree’nSign hopes to do its part to eliminate the step into the physical world of hard copy by facilitating legally binding and defensible electronic signatures. The Agree’nSign API makes it possible to integrate this function into existing applications.
During an impressive 35 hour stretch over the weekend, over 100 developers came together in San Francisco to hack the electronic signature using the DocuSign Enterprise API and other APIs along the way. The winners show the breadth of applications built on DocuSign's platform, taking e-signatures beyond the legal document.
