Form Simplicity Announces Enhancements to its eSign Service

Form Simplicity has released an updated version of its eSign service powered by GoPaperless Solutions, Inc. eSign’s updated version includes a redesign as well as enhanced tools for users and signing recipients. Form Simplicity is owned by Florida Realtors® and is a member benefit to Florida Realtors members in addition to members of several state and local associations throughout the United States.

The new eSign includes an improved user navigational experience along with a fresh, new design and faster functionality. The redesigned eSign makes the process more intuitive for the user when setting up a signing session, through highlighted, guided steps. The user may now also set up conditional signing, for those times when information shown to the recipient could change based on how the recipient responded to a particular field. Users now have the option to sign using a fingertip or stylus on tablets and smartphones, or with a mouse on laptop and desktop computers. Additionally, users may set up templates within eSign for documents not already integrated within the eSign service.

“With the release of the redesigned eSign service, Form Simplicity eSign users have gained two main advantages: enhanced features and an intuitive, simplified interface,” said Eric Forsman, Vice President of technology services at Florida Realtors. “Not only does Form Simplicity’s eSign eliminate the need to scan and fax documents, but it also greatly reduces the time it takes to set up an eSign session since our clients’ libraries of forms are pre-programmed with signing blocks. With the additional capability to sign with a fingertip or a stylus on a mobile device, we are confident that our users will appreciate the ease of use their clients will experience when electronically signing forms.”

Along with the new enhancements, Form Simplicity eSign users will be able to use the same features included in the previous version. Rollover features include integrated forms programmed with signing blocks, capability to send documents to signers all at once or with sequencing signing, an address book, activity log, signing session information page, automated deliveries to signers of completed and signed documents, optional password protection, capability to add custom fields, a preview screen and a custom email message toolbar. Form Simplicity’s eSign is secure, encrypted, legally enforceable per the 2000 ESign Act, and includes a complete audit trail.
