Electronic Signature

Save time: Sign faxes anywhere

Thanks to the electronic signature feature, your staff will never again have to lose momentum by stopping to print, sign and manually fax an important document.
With eFax Corporate’s electronic signature capability, your employees can simply drag and drop a stored signature onto a fax before sending. If they haven’t yet stored an esignature file in their account — a simple process that takes just a minute — employees can simply create an electronic signature on the fly by tracing their finger across the screen.

Electronic Signature

Strengthen relationships with customers, partners and vendors

eFax Corporate® customers tell us that one of the biggest benefits of the electronic signature capability is that it improves their responsiveness to clients and partners — because they can literally review, sign and return an important fax document within seconds, even if they’re on the road with only a mobile device.

That’s because we’ve built our entire cloud fax platform — electronic signature included — into the eFax Mobile App.

Electronic Signature

Close more deals on the road

Another powerful benefit of eFax Corporate’s electronic signature is the advantage it gives your company in competitive bidding situations, — by allowing you to respond to requests for quotes before other companies can even find a pen. When every minute counts and the deal could be on the line, your ability to review and respond before your competitors — even if you’re nowhere near a fax machine — can help you win the business.

The eFax iPad and iPhone fax app and Android fax app also gives you a second option for adding an electronic signature. Just hand-write your signature on a slip of paper, snap a pic with your mobile device’s camera, and save it to eFax. Now you’ve got an electronic signature you can use anytime to sign and send a fax online.

Frequently Asked Questions

With eFax Corporate, you can simply sign fax documents electronically without having to physically print, sign and scan back. The eFax Mobile App lets you easily sign fax documents by applying your saved signature or simply signing using your finger. The eFax Messenger app allows you to apply your saved signature or sign using a stylus. You can create and store multiple electronic signatures in your eFax account, which you can use anytime to sign a fax.

A copy of the fax containing your electronic signature will be saved to your Signed Docs folder in eFax Message Center, for future retrieval. The unsigned version will remain in its original form in your Inbox.

In general, the answer to this question is yes. Nowadays, it’s universally agreed that a document cannot be denied legal enforceability solely because it is in electronic form. Electronic and digital signatures carry the same legal weight as paper documents with physical signatures.

However, there are certain rules and regulations depending on where in the world you are. Current NSW legislation, for example, only recognises digital and e-signatures if both parties to the contract have consented to the use of such signatures, and if the method used for signing is deemed entirely reliable.

If you want to create your own bespoke Electronic Signature which can be used as your default, all you have to do is take a photo of your existing hand-written signature and store it online (like in a cloud-based storage system for example). Then you can simply drag and drop your electronic signature stamp onto any digital fax document and you’re done!

If you would like to sign your signature electronically via your mobile smartphone or tablet without the need for accessing your traditional written signature, eFax Corporates new ‘sign on screen’ functionality allows you to sign your documents directly on your device’s screen using either your finger or a stylus as if it were a traditional pen or pencil. You can simply replicate your old signature from memory this way, making it feel natural, simple and comfortable.
