Industry’s Positive Comments
Customers love that how easy it is to import a document, setup spots where you need signatures, and then loop in all parties so that the doc goes to each person in a specific order. Also, you can easily see where a doc gets “stuck” with one signer and follow up with reminders.
Customers like that they can create documents digitally and not have to run through the extra steps of scanning, printing, signing, emailing, faxing and other actions. It is super easy to use and to be able to keep track of sent documents that are still pending.
Customers finds DocuSign as an alternative to the paper documents. You can remotely sign a paperless document. One document can be sing by 2 or more people. DocuSign is simplifying a process that used to be very tedious as it was the use of fax, in addition they can be signed massively, thus simplifying the office work.
Needs Improvement
Customers feel restricted with user interface area, its graphic and visual capacity is limited, it does not have editable file viewers, more dynamic customization options and the ability to view files and folders.
Customers feel that there is some gray area under certain conditions. The fact that they use a copy of a signature as opposed to their hand actually signing with a pen might not deemed as a genuine signature to some organizations. Also, once you already send/create a document it is hard to edit if needed.
