Sign documents wherever you are and reduce your costs

Most documents, such as inter-municipal agreements, require the signature of several signatories who sometimes live in different geographical areas. This process can take up to a few days and, with more signatories, can slow down urgent requests. Avoid mail and printing costs and delays with eZsign.

Organize the way you get the signatures

When you need to issue work authorization certificates, several people are involved in the process: the applicant, the owner, the case manager, all of whom must sign the documents at different times. With eZsign’s workflow management, you can set the order in which all parties must sign and eZsign takes care of the rest of the process.

Help several departments manage their paperwork

Simplify the paperwork handled by the environment department, town planning and home inspectors by allowing them to simply click and sign notices and paperwork.

Sign with confidence

eZsign makes your work a snap. Easily obtain signatures from colleagues and residents—no matter where they are—without ever leaving your office. Work knowing your documents and data are secure.

Security and compliance

When it comes to e-signatures, security is paramount. Signers must be confident that their signatures are legitimate, trustworthy, and tamper-proof. eZsign has built-in security features that prevent fraud and ensure signatures are legally binding. You don’t just get a picture of a signer’s name—you get a true signature. Our solution has the most detailed paper trail in the industry. 

Timestamping authority (TSA)

Whenever a file is uploaded, viewed, modified, or signed, a trusted third party provides a timestamp, ensuring that no party can falsify or forge the date or time. The timestamping authority acts as an impartial witness who proves exactly when documents are edited or signed.

Long-term validation (LTV)

Every eZsign signature uses long-term validation, meaning they are protected and can be legally proven. LTV acts like a notary journal for your signatures, providing unparalleled peace of mind.
