The biggest value that WattzOn is offering through its WattzOn API is access to its “Embodied Energy Database” (EED). This database seeks to detail the amount of energy required to manufacture, transport, use, and dispose of all our stuff. The idea is that if we knew the embodied energy in all the items we use, we could make better consumption choices, avoiding those items with unexpectedly high embodied energy.
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.
