When it comes to adopting a paperless office, legal departments are often resistant because they think it is less secure, it means there will be no paper in the building at all, or they simply don’t know where to start.

The DocuSign integration with Effacts enables legal departments to implement a 100% digital, paperless workflow for contracts and other legal documents. Customers that integrate DocuSign with the legal management software can collect their signatures in a matter of minutes instead of days, greatly reducing the time it takes to complete a workflow. In addition to saving time and money, a survey by the AIIM showed that going digital can increase productivity in the office by nearly 30% through removing interrupted processes and time spent looking for lost or mislabeled files.

In addition to automating paper processes, the signing procedure is secure. Since cybersecurity is one of the top concerns for the general counsel, ensuring the security of the technology is a necessity. The integration of DocuSign ensures that all contracts can be signed and sent securely because each signature is encrypted and comes with a tamper-seal certificate and digital audit trail. In other words, legal departments actually face an increased risk of a cybersecurity attack by using paper processes. Watch the short film and discover how the partnership of Effacts and DocuSign assists legal companies in making the digital transformation.
