From public transport struggles to global health concerns, things sometimes get in the way of getting to the office. How can you maintain productivity when you work from home? How do you make sure that contracts keep getting signed and agreements keep being made?
Luckily, we live in an era where working from home is not only possible: it is now embraced. There are so many fantastic tools available to help people do their best work from wherever they are. Here, we explore some of the many ways that electronic signatures can keep business moving forward, from any location, no matter which department you work in.
Here are five ways people use DocuSign eSignature to work from home.
Human Resources: Hiring remotely
Hiring is an important HR process. Keep pace with your recruitment programs while you work from home and make sure you get the right offers to the right candidates, regardless of where you are
DocuSign helps you transform HR, from hiring to retiring, by connecting, automating and accelerating the employee agreement process. You can send out a contract to a prospective recruit in minutes, they can review the document, get back to you with any questions, and then sign on the dotted line. No face-to-face contact required, signing can be done in a few clicks from almost any device.
Sales: Sealing a deal in a couple of minutes
Every business has a goal of closing deals faster. But getting that last signature from a client can be a big hurdle – particularly if you’re not able to meet face-to-face. Luckily, DocuSign can ease this last critical milestone and turn it into a competitive advantage.
Integrating DocuSign with your CRM tool makes the job a lot easier. Customers can quickly and easily sign documents. Your team, wherever they are, can monitor progress to ensure the sales cycle keeps rolling. Senders and signers benefit from seamless experiences, on computers or mobile.
Purchasing: Keeping up with supplies without paper
Streamline the management of your supplier contracts using DocuSign. From initiation to archiving, you can manage it all through a single interface and a digital signature. While purchasing processes like vendor onboarding can be a challenging, digitization makes it easier for your colleagues, while ensuring compliance.
DocuSign signed contracts are secure, tamper-proof and traceable. You can ensure continuity of supply – even if no-one’s in the office to receive the goods.
Finance: Paying staff expenses while you work from home
When many of your co-workers are working remotely, who’s there to manage and reimburse expenses? Expense reports can be a difficult thing to manage remotely – particularly if you need items validated or before paying them. If it’s all in DocuSign, then you can send out an employee’s expenses for approval at the click of a button, and managers can sign from wherever they are. Too easy.
