Meet Scrub Daddy’s secret for securing signatures swiftly


E-signature software and Scrub DaddyIf you watch “Shark Tank,” then you know that many brilliant entrepreneurs have found start-up success from the show.

But no product on “Shark Tank” has been as successful as Scrub Daddy.

Scrub Daddy’s original “smiley-faced” scrubber is now one among a full line of high-performance cleaning products. The company has reached more than $170 million in sales!

Aaron Krause, founder of “America’s Favorite Sponge,” recently took time to speak with us at InsureSign about how our e-signature software (ranked No. 1 for usability) has helped make life easier for the busy Scrub Daddy team (and for Aaron personally).

InsureSign: Before switching to InsureSign, how did you get documents signed?

Aaron: It was very complicated. It was either via fax, or we’d have to sign, scan and send back (and often the signed document wasn’t acceptable because it wasn’t readable or required a “wet” signature). I also used to save my signature as a JPEG and insert it into a PDF. Once I discovered InsureSign, it was transformative. I was doing it wrong before.

InsureSign: How is the Scrub Daddy team using InsureSign?

Aaron: The majority of our high volume signing needs are for NDAs (non-disclosure agreements) and CDAs (confidential disclosure agreements). We’ve also been using InsureSign for higher-level documents, like signatures on leases. I also use it personally, outside of the business, for lease and rental agreements.

InsureSign: What have been the biggest benefits to using our e-signature software?

Aaron: Now, with InsureSign, my employees can send documents out for signature, and I’m copied on the emails so I know when everything has been signed.  It saves me a lot of time from sending documents out for signing myself (since my employees can send them out on my behalf) and I’m copied on them. Also, having the signed documents in electronic format, and not having to file them somewhere, makes it easy to access everything electronically at any time – and also see in one place when it was signed.

Also, the customer service is really good, and Joe (InsureSign’s CEO) personally reached out to make sure we were happy. It looks like you all care about customer service, and we care about our customers the same way.

InsureSign: Thanks so much for choosing InsureSign, Aaron! We’re all running out to load up on Scrub Daddy products now.

Texas agency saves time with eSignature software

Stefani O’Donald uses eSignature SoftwareWe’re proud to have called Texas Associates Insurors a client of ours for the last two years. Recently, we checked in with Stefani O’Donald, branch manager at the Smithville office, to see how everything was going.

InsureSign: Tell us a little about yourself and your agency.

Stefani: I’ve been with the agency for 23 years, and in addition to being the Smithville branch manager, I’m also a commercial lines account manager.

Texas Associates Insurors is a full service, independent insurance agency. We offer personal, commercial, life and health insurance and contract bonds. Our home office is located in Austin, with another three branch offices in Texas with more than 50 employees.

InsureSign: What was it like setting up your first document for eSigning?

Stefani: I was one of the first testers at the agency, and I remember that the eSignature software was very user friendly. I heard many comments from employees during training about how much time it would save us.

InsureSign: How has the switched changed things for your customers?

Stefani: It’s great for our customers because not everyone has the capability to print out documents, but most everyone has a smart phone. As soon as they sign our document from their mobile device, it shoots right back to me.

Some of our customers don’t have time to come in the office or print our documents, so they love the access and usability.

InsureSign: What are some of your favorite features?

Stefani: I love how fast it is, and that I can simply click and drag fields where I want the customer’s signature.

InsureSign: How has InsureSign saved you time?

Stefani: In the past, when we mailed documents for signing, we’d have to print them out and put yellow tabs where we wanted our customers to sign. If we emailed the documents, then we’d have to highlight where we’d want them to sign. We would still get back incomplete forms occasionally, and sometimes the customer would miss a page completely. With InsureSign, there’s no way to send back an incomplete form.

Also, now that we don’t have to print, highlight where to sign and scan them back in or mail them, we’re saving as much as 10 minutes per document delivery. That time adds up at a busy agency like ours.

I think it’s a pretty slick product and I can’t imagine why we went so long without it.

InsureSign: What agency-management software does your company use?

Stefani: We use Applied.

InsureSign: Thanks for taking the time to talk with us, Stefani!

Four Ways Our eSignature Software Can Save You Even More Time

With our eSgnature software, eSignatures Software on laptopthousands of insurance professionals have each freed up a few hours every workday (for a total of what might be hundreds of thousands of hours saved each year through InsureSign).

How? All that time that was once spent printing, scanning, faxing and mailing documents for signing is now open.

In addition to minimizing time spent on the insured signing process, InsureSign can also help your agency free up valuable time in several other ways.

No. 1 – Increase the time savings across all agency departments

Do you have association memberships up for renewal? New vendor agreements? Internal employee documents?

Give the gift of time to others within your agency by educating them about all the ways InsureSign can be used across job functions, from HR to marketing to IT to the front desk.

No. 2: Create time-saving InsureSign templates, don’t reinvent the wheel

Once someone within your agency has created a template for any document you all frequently use, then all employees with an InsureSign account can access those templates at any time.

Time spent setting up a template? Often less than one minute. Time spent sending off a template for signing? The mere seconds it takes to enter the recipient’s email and hit “send.” Sure, both are quite fast, but one minute vs. a few seconds = somewhere around a 1000-percent savings in time per document! 

No. 3: Eliminate all unnecessary follow-up

Are you finding yourself following up with customers a lot? Asking, “Did my fax come through?” Or, “The document is missing a few signatures, can you resubmit?”With our eSignature software, eSignatures Software on laptopthousands of insurance professionals have each freed up a few hours every workday (for a total of what might be hundreds of thousands of hours saved each year through InsureSign). Or even, “Have you had a chance to look at the signing documents?”

No more. You can use InsureSign to see, at a glance, who’s viewed the documents, whether they’ve been signed or not, and schedule automated follow-ups.

As for the hassles of incomplete documents, your customers cannot submit a document missing signatures or other fields.   All of your required fields must be completed for them to hit “send.” (And then the insured automatically gets a confirmation email so they know all has been received!   

No. 4: Stop wasting time picking up ‘breadcrumbs’

Do you need to look at a signed document from last year? Or are you facing a court case and need all background on when a document was signed?

Easy. We store all signed documents for easy retrieval at any time. And each signed document comes with a complete audit trail so, if you’re questioned, you have all the answers you’ll need in one place.

Now you and the rest of your agency can deal with the delightful dilemma of, “How should we spend our extra time?”

 

 

Q&A: Insurance agent answers, ‘Which eSignature software is best?’

Gary - eSignature softwareRecently, we sat down with Gary Krigbaum, an agent/broker and IT administrator for Wilson Paves and Associates in California. Gary, who has used both InsureSign and the “other” eSignature solution, shared his experiences with us.

InsureSign: How long have you been using InsureSign, and how has it been so far?

Gary: We have used InsureSign for more than a year now and all of our users and clients love it. It is easy to use for the originator as well as the clients. We have found that the turnaround time is 24 hrs or less to receive the completed signed docs back from the client.

InsureSign: Had your agency used any other eSignature solutions in the past?

Gary: Due to the fact that we are a Vertafore AMS360 online agency, we tried Docusign. But we found that attempting to attach additional documents outside of the AMS management system was cumbersome, difficult and more expensive.

Our agency writes a large book of business that requires supplemental applications, finance agreements and forms to sign for various miscellaneous items as well as our own forms that we include with new or renewal proposals. It’s easy with InsureSign’s print driver: we browse to a folder to bring all forms together, quickly prepare them for signature and email out.

John and Gary -eSignature software

Gary with Wilson, Paves & Associates’ president, John

After all the forms are completed, the “final” email comes to the user with the audit trail of all transactions. We then attach that email to the client in AMS360 as an Activity.

InsureSign: Now that you’ve used both, which would you recommend for insurance agencies?

I would highly recommend using InsureSign for the above reasons, AND you get a bonus with the “Superior” support. I have been doing the IT Administration for more than 15 years with this agency, and have never worked with a better one-on-one support team! Hats off to that team!

InsureSign: Thank you, Gary!
