Polden Bower

“We are a group of three schools operating across six sites supported by a Central Team, so were looking for an electronic approval solution that would bring about significant efficiency, both in time and cost. We wanted a user-friendly system that would comply with finance policy, manifest maximum engagement from all Signatories, and had the capability to offer more as we grow as an organisation.  E-Sign fits the bill on all fronts for us from affordability, cost savings, accessibility and functionality perspectives, right through to tried and trusted customer service, support and data security.  We spent our first year on the Business Plan to embed this new way of working into our processes and we are now ready to roll out E-Sign access to other Central departments as we upgrade to the Enterprise subscription.  The user guides, chat facility, training offer and support provided by E-Sign is all really helpful and the team are always responsive when we get in touch.  It’s also reassuring that the Data Centres are in the UK and are managed by E-Sign.”

University of Salford Testimonial

University of Salford

We use E-sign at the University of Salford to issue copyright declaration forms when supplying copies of material to users of our archives. We used to issue the forms as attachments to emails, but users found it difficult to sign and return the forms, especially if they didn’t have a printer. Sending the forms using E-Sign has made it much easier and quicker for our users to sign and return the forms. From our end it is simple and straightforward to issue the forms via E-Sign and we get a notification when they have been completed.
