It’s that time of year again. Get ready to usher out the old year with a countdown, pop some champagne corks to ring in the New Year and make resolutions for the year ahead. At InsureSign, our New Year’s resolution is the same for 2016 as it has been every year since our founding: to be 100 percent focused on listening to the needs of our customers and giving them an e-signature solution that meets those needs. While we’re busy fulfilling our resolution, e-signatures can also help insurance professionals keep some of their New Year’s resolutions too. Here’s how:
Saving time: From getting in shape to traveling more to learning something new, many popular New Year’s resolutions require something that most of us have too little of – time. By eliminating the need for scanning, faxing, printing and mailing documents, e-signatures save insurance professionals a tremendous amount of time. E-signatures also make it impossible to leave forms incomplete, which means the time you save tracking down information can also be spent pursuing your resolutions.
Spending less: In 2015, one-quarter of all people surveyed by Nielsen said that their New Year’s resolution was to spend less money. For insurance agencies that want to achieve this goal in 2016, e-signatures are a great solution. A technology as convenient as e-signatures might seem pricey, but is actually less expensive than paper signatures. Using e-signatures, agencies can save big on printer ink, paper, couriers, certified mail delivery and paper file management.
Delivering better customer service: If being nicer or more generous to others is your goal for the New Year, e-signatures can help you make good on that resolution. By using e-signatures, insurance professionals give their customers the freedom to sign documents when and where they want on the device of their choosing, eliminating the frustration of printing out lengthy documents. E-signatures also save customers from making a trip to the office, which means they save some time that they can use to keep their New Year’s resolutions too.
Best wishes to all for a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year!
