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

If you need an affordable, feature rich, API open solution, for e-Signature then eSign Genie may be a great fit for your needs.
ESign Genie is a great resource for sending initial paperwork to my mental health clients. I was looking for something affordable, flexible, HIPPA secure, and easy to use.
Very pleased and so thankful that I finally found a solution to my e-signature needs.

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

It can be very pricey and the fee structure can be very confusing and misleading. Customer service is hit or miss in their ability to offer accurate assistance.
Training is limited and online documentation is hard to find and when you find it, it is sometimes hard to read.
It keeps our company from losing leads and lowers attrition.

Love it!

Reviewed 2 years ago

Awesome!

Pros

We love the pricing, the fact that it is extremely user friendly, secure, ESIGN compliant.

Cons

We do not like the way bulk send is set up. Bulk send would be extremely useful for us but we need to see the individual documents listed under documents to ensure a smooth workflow. We also would like if there were repeat fillable boxes in addition to name, email, etc. for example, our documents require DOB and SSN and other fields to be repeated and the applicant has to input it manually every time

Vendor response

Thanks so much for taking the time to share your experience, Kaela. It makes a difference to folks who are new to eSignature! We'll definitely pass on this feedback about bulk sending capabilities and smart fields to our product team. Thank you again!

New to Esigning

Reviewed 2 years ago

Works well and there is no limit on the number of envelopes per year like other companies.

Pros

Unlimited envelopes. We had 107 esign documents to send the first week. Other companies only allow 100 per year.

Cons

Basic reporting features are needed in the standard version. The ability to print a list based on status rather than scrolling through multiple screens.

HelloSign was perfect for our office.

Reviewed 2 years ago

HelloSign was perfect for our office. It provides exactly what we need without spending a small fortune.

Pros

The ease of use and set up is amazing. The pricing structure is transparent. We used another well know esign app and they increased our cost 1000% even though we had an unlimited package. I have never had any issue with HelloSign.

Cons

I would like to be able to edit after it had been sent. Also a more detailed audit trail would be useful.

A must have for your toolkit of productivity tools and a top e-signing tool

Reviewed 6 years ago

I think that they've done an excellent job with making this tool something anyone can use and the interface very sleek.

Pros

I am a personal business user of this tool and have also been the IT project manager to implement this tool university-wide. It is extremely user friendly and it's a very versatile tool. It is also priced very reasonably for the features available and is a smart addition or any size of organization. You can e-sign your own personal documents or send it out to multiple users and designate the order...

Cons

I think that the document repository can use some more filtering or organizational tools so teams can manage incoming documents more effectively. Also for team delegation for a primary user can override or intercept documents if they've bottle-necked.

Review of eSign Genie

Reviewed 5 years ago

We are a multi-location business with some services (HR, Health and Safety, Fleet Management, Accounting) based out of one location. E-Sign Genie lets us eliminate a lot of paper flowing between our various branches. We use E-Sign Genie to have employees sign Offers of Employment, new hire documents (tax documents, policy sign off's etc.) and health and safety orientation documents.

Pros

Software has an intuitive interface, is very easy to learn and when there were features that I did not understand immediately customer support was always available immediately to assist and answered every question I had clearly and without relying on jargon.

Cons

Editing an existing template requires a user to upload the entire template again. If substantial changes to base document have been made the various eSign fields that "overlay" the document no longer align and it means the user has to start from scratch and layout a whole new series of fields. Some of our templates utilized over 100 fields so it is a time consuming project if we decide to change a template.

Vendor response

Hi Doug, We have a feature where you can easily replace the underlying PDF document. It is called "Replace with New PDF File" under the "More Actions" menu. All the 100+ fields that you created will stay in place and you will be able to replace the underlying PDF document. If you would like live training on this feature please feel free to call us and make an appointment: (408) 560-3900 --> eSign Genie Customer Success Team
