In a previous post, we highlighted the four-fold benefit of adopting an eSignature and document management platform among insurance carriers and agencies:
- Reduce cost and improve productivity
- Diminish error and omission (E&O) exposure
- Create a competitive edge
- Delight clients with a legal and secure digital alternative
But did you know AssureSign offers unique eSigning features that help those in insurance reduce the lifecycle of common documents by even greater margins? White-labeling, out-of-the-box and customizable integrations with EZLynx and other ECMs, bulk document sending, and other features support a seamless customer experience. But when you send documents to your client’s smartphone for signature, you can instantly reduce the lifecycle of any and all your documents!
Still sending documents for signature via email?
This may shock you (it shocked us), but nearly 55% of smartphone users don’t have mobile access to their email inbox! That’s over half of your clients. But even when clients do have mobile access to their inboxes, a majority of emails are ignored or left unopened. On average, text messages have nearly four times the open rate (98%) than emails (20%). What’s more, 90% of text messages are opened in three minutes or less!
When clients receive their documents for signature on the device in their back pocket, they can instantly review, sign, and send claims paperwork, onboarding forms, and other common documents. Staying connected with clients when they’re on the go means less coverage lapses, less missed deadlines, and more business.
Will sending onboarding forms via SMS win more clients?
Sending onboarding and other paperwork via SMS not only reduces signing times, it eliminates the gap in your time-to-close rates. Businesses empowering clients to sign documents on their smartphone via text message find over half their sent documents signed and returned within five minutes or less. You can even have clients complete their forms before ending your first call! No more losing prospects between first contact and completed onboarding.
Sign clients in-person? Review and sign forms together when you send forms to their device of choice!
