Set Phone Call Authentication To ESign
How to use phone call authentication
Ensure that a recipient is the only person capable of signing and filling your document by setting phone call authentication.
To get started, upload the document you need signed to your signNow account by clicking the Upload Document button.
Once a document has been uploaded, click Invite to Sign.
In the window that opens next, type the email address of the signer and click Advanced options below.
Select Phone Call authentication from the list of available authentication methods.
Type the phone number of your recipient, set reminders and the expiration date. Click Send Invite.
You will be notified via email when the recipient has signed the document.
Calculating the ROI of eSigning
When an office is picking new software for business use, there are usually two types of common constraints, simply put as:
- People are too lazy to learn
- People do not want to pay extra
In this lesson we will concentrate on the latter. No matter how much you are expected to pay for a software - $5 or $150 - there are always unavoidable questions: Is this a worthy investment? What saving effect are we getting from the implementation?
Let's start from the baseline - the current prices of signNow packages.
At the moment this course is created, the very basic plan costs $8 per user per month.
Let's do some calculations on the example of a really small business:
Paul from Dayton, Ohio, just purchased 1 seat in signNow and, say, has on average 25 documents to be signed on a monthly basis (this number will surely vary, depending on the monthly load, the season, number of days off in a particular month and so on).
1. TIME SAVING
So, Paul has 25 documents to be signed.
Scenario 1: Paul signs each of these 25 documents on paper during a personal meeting with a client/business partner.
Under this scenario either Paul, or the second signer would need to travel for at least 10-30 minutes to sign (Dayton is not that big, so, for the sake of simplicity, let's assume no traffic jams).
This totals to 250-750 minutes (4-12 hours, roughly) per month. Or 48-144 hours a year! Spent on commuting from one office to another.
Scenario 2: Paul decides to stay in the office and use the services of a delivery guy for all 25 documents.
Communication with the delivery guy will still take some time, let's say 5 minutes on sending and 5 minutes for getting a document back.
This would be 10 minutes for each document. Or 250 minutes = 4,16 hours in total.
Scenario 3: Paul sends all documents for eSigning via signNow.
Sending for signing (typing in the email address and Paul's welcoming message) takes about 1 minute. Getting the eSigned copy back and opening the PDF - one more minute.
This would be 50 minutes, or less than an hour in total.
2. DELIVERY COSTS
Now let's talk in money terms.
Scenario 1: Paul delivers documents personally, driving own car.
Let's assume Paul drives Chevy Malibu and has to use it for 4-12 hours (see Scenario 1 above).
Let's make it an average of 8 hours in one month. 8 hours of driving in a city like Dayton would be:
1 hour = 30 miles
8 hours = 240 miles
Each 30 miles on Chevy Malibu cost about $2.
Thus, $16 for fuel only, when delivering documents personally.
Note: we intentionally omit the costs of parking, oil for the car and all other related costs.
Scenario 2: Sending documents via regular mail.
Let's assume Paul is an incredibly old-school guy and does not mind at all visiting the local postal office. Also, his clients might be living not in Dayton but somewhere around, in Urbana or Eaton.
One first-class large envelope would cost Paul $1.00.
(Let's assume there is no urgency, so we do not use priority mail rates).
This would be $25 per month.
Scenario 3: Sending via signNow.
Since Paul has just purchased signNow Business Plan, this would be $8 per month.
And most importantly, even if this month Paul needs to send not 25 documents, but 50 documents, or 100, or 200 - this would be same $8 per month!
(Unlike some other eSigning solutions, signNow does NOT charge by the number of documents to be sent).
3. COSTS OF TECHNICAL ERRORS' PREVENTION
The major problem with paper-based workflows is that they are frequent subject to technical errors and human mistakes. Let's do some basic calculations for the most typical cases:
- Looking through the already signed document - from 1 to 10 minutes, depending on how many pages in a document and how many fields are supposed to be filled in.
The average hourly wage in the US is around $28. Thus, 10 minutes of review would cost $4.6 per document. If you need to go through, say, 12 documents per week - that would be $55,20 in total, or $221 per month. Just for double-checking the already signed documents.
With signNow the same would take' 0 (zero) minutes, and thus - 0$. You know why? Because signNow offers automated guidance through the whole process of eSigning. This means:
- Not a single field will be skipped
- All signers, no matter how many of them you have in one document, will know exactly where to sign
- There is also an option to label fields and thus hint signers on what exactly they need to input in the field.
4. COST OF LOST FILES
According to the feedback provided by signNow's customers, prior to switching to eSigning, they used to spend at least 1 hour a week searching for lost files.
1 hour per week (cost of one business hour, see previously, is around $28), 52 working weeks a year
- $1456 a year spent simply on searching for lost files!
(And don't forget that this is the absolute minimum, actually).
On the top of that, do not forget reputational risks involved. What if the lost paper document was stolen and delivered to your competitor?
As you might be probably guessing by now, with signNow this would be:
0 minutes and 0$ spent on searching for missing files (cause they are all in your secure cloud)
And also, zero reputational risks due to lost documents.
We often here sceptical voices saying: Why would I spend several bucks per month on a solution which allows me drawing signatures with my finger? I might use a pen as well, no biggie!
The truth is, savings effects from using electronic signatures and digital workflows outweigh expenditures on the related software.
Try calculating the same costs as above for your office specifically. We are sure you will be impressed!
