With cloud computing/storage options like Google Drive, SkyDrive, Dropbox and many more, everyone is looking forward to have a paperless office. But without a legal signature option, your paperless office will remain incomplete as we need to sign documents frequently to make them authentic. Sometimes, we need the signature from our colleague or seniors on documents, in that case we need to take print version of the document to him/her and take signature then scan the document to have digital format back to our computer. If you are looking for an option to make your office 100% paperless including the signature part, then HelloSign is for you.
HelloSign online application is a free option to add legal signature on documents stored on your local computer or uploaded on Google Drive, SkyDrive, Dropbox, Evernote, Box.net etc. You can also request signature from someone else on documents stored on these locations using the same service for free.
