Authentication

Our intelligent E-Sign tool uses the sender’s and signer’s email addresses to authenticate electronic signatures. For complete security, the only way to access and sign e-sign packages is through your personal email access, which ensures that only the designated signer or signers can view and edit documents.

Permissions

There’s different permission for different roles! As the sender, your permissions will differ from those of the signer. While signers only have the ability to sign documents, senders are given administrative permissions and access, which allows them to edit, review, and track the progress of e-sign documents.
