Picture this: It’s the last day of the month. You’re about to close a massive deal. The deal you need to hit your monthly quota and put you into bonus territory. You’ve been working on this prospect for months now. You’ve sent your counterparty a digital contract from Oneflow. You like your chances that they’re going to sign. The negotiations have been nothing but positive so far. You look at the time. The clock is ticking. Each second brings you painfully closer towards 5 pm, the end of the business day. Then, you get a call. They give you the green light. There’s a notification in your inbox that they’ve signed your contract and the deal is closed.
For you, you’re feeling happy, pumped up, and you might’ve started to think about creative ways to spend your bonus. But, before the celebration starts, have you ever taken the step back to think about what it looks like for your prospect who signed your contract with digital signing software tool like Oneflow? Apologies for breaking the mental image of sipping your bonus on a beach somewhere. Before you get there though, it’s always nice to put yourself in the shoes of someone else. In this case, your counterparty. Well, here’s what it’s like signing a Oneflow contract from the other side of the process.
Digital contracts; Just like magic
Once the contract is signed, it’s sealed and digitally secured. Then everyone who was attached will receive an email or notification via their chosen channel of communication. Within this email will be the digital contract, which you can then decide to download in a PDF format to keep locally stored on your computer
Also while looking at the signed version of the contract, you are able to review all of the features and components of it. You can see the information and role of everyone who was involved in the process. Plus all of the comments and the detailed audit trail history will be there as well. This information is readily available so that you can properly internalize the document. It’s quite a useful way to see everything that occurred during the negotiation process and grasp the terms of the contract that was just signed.
There are layers of security
Oneflow’s contracts are legally binding, incredibly safe, and secure. However, there is also the option of having a third party verify the authenticity of the digital signature. So at the end of the contract and after the initial signing process, it’s possible to add another layer of security to your agreement. This would be a notary or some independent authority signing the contract to further verify the e-signature. Some people would rather be safe than sorry. Which, is totally understandable! It’s just another layer of safety that you can add if you so wish!
