How E-Signatures Empower Financial Institutions To Streamline The Financial Agreement Process

Signatures on a financial agreement between two parties are the lifeblood of financial services. This essential part of every transaction keeps business moving forward — and should be the easiest part of each contract. With e-signatures, you can provide customers with a seamless experience while meeting the financial industry’s security and compliance regulations.

Obstacles in Obtaining Signatures for Financial Agreements

Tracking down signatures for financial agreements can be a time-consuming process, while printing and mailing paperwork gets expensive. How about emailing contracts? That can be just as tedious — by the time you print the attachment, sign it, scan it again, and email it back, you haven’t saved any time.

Traditional methods for capturing signatures aren’t even all that secure. Paper documents can — and do — get lost in the mail or can be tampered with, leading to potential legal and financial risks. 

The Role of E-Signatures in Securing Financial Agreement Contracts

The best way to get signatures is through e-signature technology. It allows clients to sign documents electronically, providing a modern, user-friendly way for financial institutions to obtain signatures for financial agreements. E-signatures are simple and fast, and they improve the client experience

Efficiency and Convenience for Clients: One of the key benefits of using e-signatures for a financial agreement between two parties is that they make signing easy and convenient for clients. E-signatures allow clients to review and sign documents from anywhere, at any time, using any device with internet access. This also results in faster turnaround times, because clients can simply access the document online, review its contents, and securely sign it with just a few clicks.

Security and Compliance: Financial institutions must meet strict security and compliance regulations. E-signature solutions come with robust security features that protect sensitive financial information, allowing companies to meet strict requirements. Encryption ensures that documents are securely transmitted and stored, protecting them from unauthorized access or tampering. A secure audit trail ensures there’s a detailed record of all actions taken on the document, including who accessed it and when. 

Scalability: By streamlining the signing process, e-signature solutions facilitate scalability in financial institutions. They offer flexibility and accessibility, expanding the organization’s reach beyond its physical locations and enabling it to handle increased transaction volumes as its business grows. 

With e-signature technology, financial institutions can finally have an efficient and secure way to obtain signatures for financial agreements — without chasing down anyone.

What to Look for in a Financial Agreement E-Signature Solution

What should you look for in an e-signature solution for financial agreements? Here are some features to consider:

Security and Compliance Features

Choose an e-signature solution with robust security and compliance features to ensure sensitive financial information stays protected. Look for encrypted solutions that secure document transmission and storage. A secure audit trail is a must, as it provides a detailed record of all actions taken on the document. Multi-factor authentication (MFA) adds an extra layer of security to the signing process, ensuring that only authorized individuals can sign the document.

Seamless CRM Integration

Your e-signature solutions should integrate with your existing customer relationship management (CRM) system such as Salesforce for a seamless workflow. It should be able to pull CRM data to populate forms, eliminating the need for manual data entry and reducing errors, while having the ability to write back data to the CRM. 

Powerful Document Automation

A comprehensive e-signature solution should not only enable you to send documents for e-signature but should also automatically generate those documents. This eliminates the need to manually type them and streamlines the process while ensuring that each agreement is personalized and accurate.

Dynamic Content

A financial agreement between two parties requires content tailored to the customer or as required by regulations. Your e-signature solution should have the ability to automatically include this dynamic content in the documents sent for e-signature, eliminating the need for manual customization and ensuring compliance with local regulations. Dynamic content allows for a personalized, legally compliant agreement, instead of a "one size fits all" approach.

Automatic Reminders

To keep the signing process on track, choose an e-signature solution with automatic reminder capabilities. This feature ensures that signatories are prompted to review and sign the document within the specified timeframe, reducing delays and improving efficiency. Automatic reminders can be customized based on your specific requirements so no agreement falls through the cracks.

Automation Capabilities

Finally, choose an e-signature solution that offers additional automation capabilities like scheduling agreements to be sent in the background. This feature allows you to keep everything on track while freeing up time to focus on other priorities. Automation eliminates the need for manual intervention and ensures that agreements are sent and signed promptly.
