Great tool for e-signatures

2018-05-08

We used it all the time, whether we were sending documents for ourselves to sign online or several different parties.

Hellosign is accepted by most ,but not across the globe.

2018-06-11

Pros

Hellosign reduces the amount of time we spend on closing business deals due to the need to get all interested parties to sign physical documents.

Cons

Our clients outside the western world aren't very ,much receptive to the idea of digital signature being legally binding. This is sometimes as a result of local laws in these places.

Easy

2018-05-10

It makes signing documents easy instead of bogging down people with impossible PDFs and esignatures.

Pros

HelloSign keeps track of everyone who has signed and who hasn't.

Cons

Hard to say, it's easy to set up templates but organizing or deleting templates could be more intuitive.

Does what it says it will

2018-03-27

Saves money, time and staff resources!

Pros

Easy to use and saves a lot of time going around and getting manual signatures, especially for a business that is sending out a lot of contracts or important documents to be signed.

Cons

Not really HelloSign's fault but today, not all users are comfortable signing documents electronically and have run into some questions of security or if the document is accurate.

Going digital has never been so easy!

2018-06-13

Going all digital with our HR and Payroll documents.

Pros

The templates feature is great and makes getting people to sign documents super easy.

Cons

I wish we have more than 5 templates on our business account. We can upgrade for more, but just trying to keep cost low and only need 1-2 more templates.

A very easy and seamless way to get documents signed and stored.

2017-11-16

HelloSign allows you to electronically sign documents and it does that well.

Pros

I also like that it stores my signature and I can easily sign any document that I'm having to sign within a few moments. It interfaces with what I need it to work with and it is a clean, simple interface.

Easy Way to Get Documents Signed Quickly

2018-03-31

Pros

The best thing about HelloSign is that it integrates with Google Docs/Drive so it is seamless to create and send a document out to get signed.

Cons

The free version only allows a few documents to be send per month so it required scaling pretty quickly.

Hellsign is a positive catalyst for our business.

2018-06-17

Expenditures like the cost to send a representative to another city or country to physically sign contract document ,or the cost of sending documentations via courier.

Easy to use solution

Quick and easy electronic signatures

Pros

It's easy to use and the Gmail plugin is a nice touch that makes it even more convenient to use than competitors.

Cons

The subscription model isn't great for businesses that only have an occasional need for e-signatures, while the free account allows you a handful of documents per month, you miss out on features.

Need access to contracts post-signing

2018-03-05

Pros

I love that I get a notification when a contract is sent out and then also when the contract is signed.

Cons

Honestly, the only thing that could be more helpful are the subject lines. Sometimes it's unclear whether a contract has been sent out or signed.

2018-05-04

Sign documents online

Pros

I was able to use this product without needing to sign up for an account and it worked just as expected. Hand signing with mousepad was cool.

Cons

There were quite a few button clicks to get to the signature portions of the documents. The process could be streamlined just a tad.

Hellosign does what we expect it to do.

2018-02-25

Pros

I love how it forwards reminders to clients ,reminding them of documents they need to get signed.

Cons

However my only reservation will be with the email link we send to clients ,from where they can view documents to be signed.We have situations,whereby a client clicks on the link, closes it to come back to it later ,and by the time he/she returns back to click on the link, the link has expired and we have to resend the document.This need be fixed.
