For a government agency, going paperless isn't just a nice idea; it's an essential requirement for delivering improved citizen service in a cost effective manner. While most agencies have been going green for several years, business processes that require signatures remain stubbornly paper-based. Government workers, retirees, businesses, and citizens still lose countless hours printing, faxing, mailing, and tracking documents because a signature is needed.
It's not that agencies don't want to solve this problem. They do. Concerns about compliance with electronic signature legislation - as well as security and privacy mandates - have been a barrier. And while some larger agencies have successfully deployed solutions for specific internal workflows, most organizations lack the budget and resources to tackle such a big infrastructure project. Even then, internal solutions don't cover it all. Most workflows that include citizens, businesses, or mobile workers still use good, old fashioned paper.
Fortunately, Adobe Sign - a cloud-based electronic signature service - is helping federal, state, and local agencies fast track their paperless efforts. Sign's easy-to-use, automated solution lets you instantly send, sign, track, and file documents securely online. Sign makes it possible to get the signatures and approvals you need, comply with mandates, and deploy a solution quickly with an affordable monthly subscription.
