Sign on the electronic line

We’ve all got some form of signature, whether it’s a barely legible scrawl, or a beautifully penned flourish, but in a fast moving world of ‘everything now’ signing a document on screen is sometimes just what’s needed.

Here at Hughes & Co, we’re all about innovation and intelligent thinking, so when something comes along that can not only save time, but save effort too, we’re going to tell you about it.

E-signatures with Interactive PDF forms mean no more time consuming process of print, sign, scan, attach and send – you can now open a form, enter information and then click the e-signature box, enter a password, save the form and return it via email – simple!

Not only do digital forms save time, they also save money in printing and admin costs, and precious space in storage. Digital forms can also reduce approval timelines for multiple signees, and allow you to verify that content in the PDF hasn’t been changed, resulting in higher trust in the document. Sounds good right?

We think so, and it’s so smooth and efficient that we’ve decided to switch from old-fashioned printed proof approval forms, to new, digital ones to make our clients’ lives just that little bit easier.

How does it work?

No magic pens here – simply download Adobe Acrobat Reader (it’s safe and free), create a digital ID and sign away! (Check out our step-by-step how-to guide below.) Adobe will insert your name along with your email address, company information and a time and date stamp. It will then save a copy for the recipients’ records that cannot be edited. Intrigued?
