Easy, Instant Electronic Signature… 

Each electronic signature doc (or envelope, a bundle of related docs / invoices etc) will create a PDF which will be emailed to both you and the signor. We’ll also store it online in your SwiftCloud drive, in a private cloud storage folder shared with that signor. Your electronic signature doc will be hosted on SwiftCloud, but branded to you, with your logo & colors, so the doc cannot be tampered with, and then after electronic signature we return the user to your site (or payment, or more docs, etc. – whatever you choose).

Each electronic signature will also automatically add the signor(s) to your address book, so you could easily message people, follow up, export for marketing and much more.

Electronic Signature Setup is Easy…

Legally Binding Instant Electronic Signature

Legally binding and compliant in all U.S. States and E.U. Countries and most jurisdictions around the world. Advanced options for military-grade PGP and HIPAA medical compliance on private clouds. SwiftCloud runs on 256 Bit SSL bank-grade encryption spanning multiple servers with auto backup. Docs can be signed 24/7 / any device / anywhere in multiple languages. Optionally add webcam, ID upload, photos or files uploads, mobile phone geolocation info and more. Integrate to CRM or pre-fill sales data, automate based on role for multi-party electronic signature and more. We take this stuff seriously, so if you need something you don't see, drop us a line.

Social Workrooms

All electronic signature signed docs will automatically create a Social Shared Workroom - a cloud based folder and collaboration workroom shared between you and the signor(s). Add private notes or comments, store files, complete information forms, upload & download docs, e-sign bundles of related docs, and much more. All workrooms feature a time stamped history of the file, sharing and permissions tools to add or remove people and commenting tools to easily see account history. Of course, each party to the electronic signature will get a PDF copy emailed as well.

Electronic Signature Your Way

The most common electronic signature type is a signable webpage, and after signature, the user gets forwarded back to your website for confirmation, or to payment. Need to get fancy, automate life, save time? Get signed PDFs, importable CSV files of all captured form data and more via email - or connect integration options to automatically post your signed docs and client or employee data into other systems. Setup signable webpages anyone can use or integrate to sales and CRM systems, HR software, and other workflows - then connection automation after signature for a complete solution.

Easy, Instant Electronic Signature On Any Device

SwiftCloud Electronic Signature is an easy way to make any document signable online over the web via mobile phone, tablet, or desktop. It’s legally binding, more secure than paper so your binding agreements are instant and easy.

Workflow Implementation Your Way

Options for implementation include email or SMS requests to a URL, embedding into your website via iFrame, co-brand links to your website user flows, feed webforms into electronic signature docs - or get geeky and dive into our APIs to setup on your own site.

FAQ

Is electronic signature legally binding?

Yes! Electronic Signatures are 100% legally binding in nearly every jurisdiction around the globe, including the U.S. and E.U.

Furthermore, electronic signatures are actually MORE difficult to forge than a traditional ink signature, because of the digital “fingerprinting” left at time of signature.

For all paying accounts, expert witnesses are available for court appearance or deposition in the highly unlikely event enforcement assistance is needed.

Each e-Signature done on the Swift Signature platform also carries an audit trail, and optional SwiftCloud-account security requirements.

For some exciting reading, we encourage you to review specific laws for your area, such as…

United States: ESIGN Act of 2000, UETA (Uniform Electronic Transactions) Act European Union: Electronic Signatures Directive of 1999 & 1993 Various other countries

UPDATED: Country-specifics list started:

Brazil

Practically speaking, enforcement for most civil contracts requires a subscriber’s willingness to sue and take the matter to court. For our part, we are frankly looking forward to making a few examples of anyone attacking the status and legal authenticity of the signatures, and have a lot to gain (both publicity as well as direct financial damages) by proving this matter.

To aid in enforcement, we have available both expert witnesses and attorneys, and in addition ......More...

Can I make a Webpage e-Signable?

Note: if you just want to get a single document signed, we have a tutorial for that here.

If you have a WordPress based website, we recommend seeing our WordPress e-signature setup instructions.

Still reading? Great! It means you want to get a document signed many times – a document template – but are not running WordPress.

That’s no problem – you’ll use SwiftCloud’s native document system, then return the users back to your website. This can also be pre-filled by other webforms, or integrated with various CRMs (besides our own Swift CRM, which is already integrated, of course).

Let’s set one up! First, create a document by logging into SwiftCloud and navigating to Home >> Files & Docs >> New Doc. Give your document a name and click save.

PART 1: Creating the e-signable doc in SwiftCloud

Next, you’ll probably want to copy and paste your document online. We’re working on a fancy uploader for Microsoft Word and other filetypes, but for now, copy and paste is your best bet.

Next, open the doc by clicking on it, and in the top left, you’ll see a blue cloud – that’s us. Click it.

Once open, you’ll have options to ......More...

e-Signature with Payment - can I?

Electronic Signature & Payment is easy.

In short you have two options:

Get Money then e-Signature or Get e-Signature then Money

Either are fine, and which is right for you depends on the nature of your sale. If you have a smaller amount (and thus more frequent), we recommend collecting money first, then getting signature.

If you have a higher dollar amount, the value of the contract is increased but the contract is usually not in force until consideration (aka payment) is made and thus for more complex contracts you probably want the contract signed first.

Either is fine, and there’s no real wrong answer – in the end the result is the same – you need both.

To setup e-signature then payment via paypal, create your form as usual (at http://swiftcloud.io/form/create-form ) and on the right side you’ll see some options under “User Flow” like this:

There you can choose an e-commerce product or service to auto-redirect the user after signature for payment. In this example, the user will flow from (1.) Your website, to >>  (2.) the signature page, then >> (3.) payment page, then (4.) back to your site for typically a receipt and thanks message confirming what ......More...


 

What People Are Saying…

I love how easy to use  SwiftCloud is for us –  it’s just “set it and forget it”. Swift Cloud’s e-sign simply works, was easy to integrate, clients like it, and it saves us time and money. Well done – I’m a happy customer.


 

7 Actionable Electronic Signature Tips:

  1. There’s 2 main methods to use e-Signature, “standing order” style (signable anytime by anyone) and specific-people style (say, a sales contract – the doc is specific to people and or a business transaction). For standing order types (waivers, HR new worker forms, etc.) these should be linked from your website for most cases, and also maybe added to emails & autoresponders (i.e. appointment scheduled confirmation).
  2. Ensure you connect marketing, by periodically exporting contacts, or connecting an API to other marketing systems.
  3. Don’t try to build Rome in a day – just get in and focus on the “low hanging fruit” – whatever you get signed most often. Other use cases will become obvious over time and if you spend just a few minutes per month optimizing your system, working on your business not in your business, you’ll reap rewards via time savings and efficiency. Most important: get the game started.
  4. Want to use a tablet for in-person e-signatures? Create a cloned separate 2nd e-signable doc, set to show a confirmation and “in person mode” in the […] section which will try to prevent autofill (thus potentially showing other client’s info). After signature, the doc will reset for the next customer.
  5. SwiftCloud’s “standing order” e-signatures can contain fillable variable-fields that do not look editable and can be generated on-the-fly by you but not by the customer; this is used often for pricing or negotiated terms – so in most cases, sales contracts even with negotiated terms (price, %, delivery dates, names etc) can contain “readonly” fields that you generate on-the-fly with the URL Generator, usually used for sales contracts.
  6. Consider levels of authentication. By default, anyone can claim to be anyone, and if you have other touch-points for the customer (i.e. they are in your business in person, and so you know their name matches a credit card for example) you’re fine – but for some businesses, you may wish to request a copy of ID (passport, driver’s license), or webcam photo, or login via Google / Facebook. Our audit-trail automatically appends info like IP Geolocation, browser & language to help with this as well.
  7. For in-person use, generate a “tiny URL”. If you have a WordPress site, “prettylinks” plugin can help make your signable URLs easier to tell clients and easier to type in your office and thus sign via phone.

5 Critical Evaluations for Electronic Signature:

  1. Is there a neutral, legally disinterested 3rd party who an prove this electronic signature document was not changed? If you self-host electronic signature, could you prove, in court, that document was not changed? If you cannot prove in court the immutability of the document, enforcement could be called into question, and for that reason, self-hosted DIY solutions may be penny wise but pound foolish.
  2. Can you prove both Identity & Intent? An electronic signature is, like a traditional ink signature, a claim to both being a specified person and agreement to terms specified within the electronic signature document. Identity can be backed up with hidden-data audit trails, IP geolocation, browser “fingerprinting”, cell-phone geolocation, webcam photos, ID upload, 2-factor authentication, social sign-in, and even more, and so electronic signature is actually stronger and more difficult to forge than old-school 1980’s era ink signatures.
  3. Did the user consent to legally-required electronic signature disclosure & consent forms? It’s a small thing – but legally required. Not all self-hosted systems may have this.
  4. Do all signor(s) have access to the signed electronic signature doc? This is legally required for an enforceable contract.
  5. Can you automate data flow? One of the biggest reasons to use electronic signature is to automate marketing, stop having to type in paper forms or losing that data to time. It’s also to save time, to strike while the iron is hot, to lose fewer sales contracts to paper jams and printers out of ink. It’s to wow your customers, so before they show up for their appointment, all the paperwork is already handled, so you get them loving you that much faster.
