Pros

We use this software daily and have had great luck with their templates. Our customers have also let us know the software is easy to use, and they love being able to e-sign documents.
Overall, I am very pleased with HelloSign and feel that it is the best software in that particular field of expertise.
For a free account, the user experience is outstanding. It does what it's supposed to do without any frills/hassle.

Pros

BlueInk staff is GREAT to work with and very helpful. I will enjoy seeing BlueInk grow to be as strong, and even stronger, than DocuSign.
Blue Ink by far is the better e signature product. The User experience is excellent and usability for my clients is great as well.
This product is affordable, easy to use. My documents look professional when sent to clients and I like many of the features; the customizable templets are really useful.

Cons

The only and biggest con to HelloSign is the inability to sign in blue ink. This is frustrating as a lot of our documents require signatures in blue, rather than black ink.
With very long documents, the buttons to go directly to the interactive part of the document does not work very well.
Biggest drawback for me is lack of a Microsoft Word add-in to upload/sign directly from Word instead of having to log into the website and upload.

Cons

One problem I had was the emails were going to spam folders. The other issues was compatibility.
Some families have a hard time following the steps to sign electronically.
I don’t like how you have to message customer service to delete old/incomplete contracts. Also there’s no options organize the contracts.

I used to have people come to my office to sign the documents but now it's a dream come true. It makes signing much more easier now. I know I am able to use blueink for much more than signing but for now it is working great.

It is costly. There should be a price package for schools that are using it.

Mosquero Review

Reviewed 2 years ago

BlueInk has made my paperwork cleaner. For example, during Covid Shut Downs I was still responsible for conducting meetings and getting signatures for my special education paper work. Trying to use the mail system to get paperwork back and forth was a nightmare. BlueInk simplified that for our district and all paperwork was signed in a timely manner.

Pros

This product is easy to use. The signers have expressed that they found it easy to figure out how to sign.

Cons

When I make a mistake in assigning a signer to the wrong spot I have difficulty figuring out how to delete the signature box so that I can assign the correct signer.

Great for Educators

Reviewed a year ago

Amazing. BlueInk has changed how we do business -especially for educational documents that require parent signature. It saves time and ensures that everyone who needs to sign the document does.

Pros

This product is so easy to use and the fact that multiple people can sign at the same time makes it very functional in the world of education.

Cons

The only thing I don't like (and I actually think it is an email account issue) is that if I receive multiple items to sign they come stacked up in one email and it is hard to keep track of the documents and I worry that I missed one.

We are able to get all of the documents associated with our student's education plans a long with staff contracts and other documents sign in a quick fashion. This allows us to start student services faster than before using BlueInk.

Pros

BlueInk is one of the easiest systems I have used and the way it has streamlined a lot of our processes is amazing for our company. We are a somewhat smaller school with not a large administrative office and this has given us more valuable time on things that we never were able to do before.

Daily User of 5-6 months

Reviewed a year ago

Invoices come back signed faster when someone signs up for the text option instead of the email. If the client is able to access the email, it seems to be more user friendly

Pros

The feature I like the most is the ability to send it to a cell phone and client's that are on the go or can't get the email to come through receive and sign instantly.

Cons

The template that we used wasn't able to be communicated to our system so we had to get an expert to come in and work on it for us. I would look into having multiple template options. Also, not being able to edit a bundle after it's been sent without copying the bundle and resending then having to delete the old one.

Teletherapy review

My overall experience has been excellent.

Pros

It is easy to use and very user friendly

Cons

When you get an email to sign, if often links it with old emails from blue ink, making it hard to find the signature you need to sign. This is difficult for staff and families. A new email should be triggered each time. Also for your reviews, you need more options for job titles. It did not have Speech language Pathologist for a job title, it did not have tele health and it had no options for education or teachers. You need to have those options. Many people are using blue ink due to covid now.

Makes my life much easier!

Reviewed a year ago

The two biggest positive changes are how much time I save completing the contract process and how quickly I receive the signed contracts back from the client.

Pros

I definitely appreciate how easy it is to use and how quickly I can get contracts out and returned (signed!) This has saved me so much time overall and the clients really like the fact they don't have to print/sign/scan and return anymore.

Cons

It may be a training issue on my part... but it would be nice if I need to make a correction to the documents that I could do that without having to create a new bundle. Even better if I could correct in Blue Ink application.

The Only Option for E-Signature

Love it

Pros

Ease of use and functionality. I find that sending documents and making templates is very intuitive. I didn't have to learn anything new or think too hard to start using the product whatsoever. As you know this is important for anyone in finance as we prefer to keep our brains in the "off" position :)

Cons

I've had a couple insurance companies that only allow a certain few approved companies for their e-sign services. I find this annoying since BlueInk has all necessary certification features (and more than some of the approved options) but that's how the business world is sometimes!

My overall experience has been very positive. I prepared a couple demo documents and sent them to myself. They were received immediately and it was an easy experience to complete the required data fields, e-sign the document, and send it back. I got the signed document almost immediately and the experience was very positive.

Pros

I just started my company and was in need of an e-signature solution. I evaluated several other products and decided on BlueInk initially because of the reasonable cost and good feature set. The signup process was quick and easy and I was able to upload my document and create my editable fields in no time at all. I got a little confused while creating my internal e-signature and was not sure if...

Cons

Too early to determine what additional features I might want but impressed that BlueInk cared enough to ask the question.
