Digital signatures are the modern day alternative to the traditional method of signing business documents with paper and pen. The digital signing technology has immensely helped governments and businesses save time and money, stay organized, and go green, saving millions of trees.
President Bill Clinton signed the historic Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act (ESIGN Act) on June 30, 2000, to facilitate electronic signatures in interstate and cross-border commerce, ensuring the legal validity of contracts entered into using electronic signatures and records. This act remains as the basic guideline for digital signature laws across the globe.
After 10 years, both Houses of Congress passed a resolution to observe June 30 as National ESIGN Day to promote and raise awareness about the advantages and legality of electronic signatures. According to the Statista, the annual number of e-signature transactions has increased nearly tenfold from 89 million to 754 million between 2012 and 2017.
All of this illustrates the global adoption of digital signatures. If you're a fast-growing business that still uses paper and pen to sign business documents or uses a different digital signature solution, here are three reasons why you should try Zoho Sign, our digital signature solution, on this National ESIGN Day.
