In a competitive market, minutes can literally make the difference when closing a deal. With Form Simplicity, real estate professionals can more quickly prepare documents for client electronic signature anytime from anywhere. With a simple click of the mouse, real estate professionals can access DocuSign from within Form Simplicity. It takes just minutes for the user to tag any document with DocuSign's familiar yellow Stick-eTabs®. Once the document tagging process is completed, the client receives an email notification, is authenticated and is quickly navigated through the electronic signature process. By extending the integration of DocuSign within Form Simplicity, real estate agents can further simplify the real estate contract signing process, save hours of time each week, eliminate signing errors and accelerate deal close rates.
