Use SMS text message to send documents for eSignature (electronic signature)


AssureSign Solutions, Product Updates

For nearly 20 years, our mission has been to make it easier and easier to sign anything electronically. From digital signature pads to Salesforce integrations, we take every possible step to simplify your eSignature transactions.  

Recently, we have witnessed a digital transformation, and you might have noticed it, too: people everywhere are glued to their smartphones. A recent study found that workers access their email via mobile devices up to 70% of the time.

To maximize efficiency, we want to help you meet your signers where they already are. Which is why we are pleased to introduce a new ability to electronically sign documents over text message.

Why Use SMS eSignatures?

SMS stands for short message service, otherwise known as text messages. According to the Pew Research Center, over 80% of adults in the U.S. send a text each day. Conect Mogul found that 90% of those text messages are read in under three minutes. Empowering signatories to sign and send documents via text can have a significant impact on the efficiency of your transactions.

 

Who Would Use SMS eSignatures?

While the majority of workers conduct business on their mobile devices, not everyone does. SMS eSignatures are a great option for any signatory who doesn’t regularly use an email address but does own a cell phone. It’s also important to remember that not all devices are created equally. The beauty of SMS eSignatures is that they work with both smartphones and simpler devices alike. A simple SMS text message will instantly reach both a tech-savvy millennial and a user uncomfortable operating more sophisticated web applications.

How Hard is it to Setup?

Integrating the ability to send and receive documents over text does not require any major changes in your template designs. The service works across multiple mobile devices and providers, enabling you to reach your signatory no matter whether they use an iPhone XS with Verizon Wireless or a Samsung Note with AT&T. Our implementation instructions will guide you through every step of configuring this feature. For technical details, click here.
