While we still do not have flying cars in 2017 yet (I think) and we’re not completely paperless, we do have e-signatures. Yep, you can use cute fonts to legally bind a document without every having to lift a pen. Over the course of my professional career, I’ve used and helped clients use may of the software tools for e-signature. However, finding one that works across an enterprise which gives all the staff involved the capability to EASILY collaborate came far and few in between. Then I ran across Concord, a cloud-based solution that meets what four critical functions I look for: ease of use, confidentiality, environmentally friendly, and automation are. Let’s take a look at Concord for all those points:
#1: EASE OF MANAGEMENT
Concord’s Contract Success Platform provides cloud-based systems are ideal for managing contracts and other types of legal documents used. Concord enhances efficiency, accuracy, and accessibility by allowing relevant parties and individuals to access and review contracts from anywhere and at any time. Contract negotiations, versions, edits, and relevant conversations can all be attached to a given document within Concord to help keep things as simplified and organized as possible. Managing recruitment contracts, employment contracts, transfer agreements, and other types of related agreements has never been more straightforward or simple.
An important part of managing contracts in the cloud is the ability to e-sign. With Concord, not only can you manage the secure storage and sharing of contracts, but individuals can also be invited to sign contracts through Concord’s online platform. All they need is an e-mail address.
It’s also important to note that the Concord’s electronic signature service has been recognized as legally binding in more than 100 countries. Allowing staff and vendors the chance to sign contracts digitally is just one more step that Concord has taken in order to save you precious time.
#2: QUALITY CONFIDENTIALITY
Though simplicity, convenience, and accessibility are a central part of the Concord Contract Success Platform, they also seem to take privacy and security very seriously. Their servers kept in compliant SSAE 16-Certified data centers. Concord also protects all documents with AES-256 encryption, an industry standard. This keeps all data safely in the hands of the account holders only.
#3: ENVIRONMENTAL EFFICIENCY
Not only does Concord offer the ability to become free of cumbersome files and paperwork, but it also can have a positive impact on your environment. Additional benefits range from protecting the natural environment and saving trees, to also helping keep places like hospital a cleaner, more clutter-free environment. When all contracts are stored digitally, you have fewer file cabinets taking up your space, fewer papers being lost or misplaced, and less hassle in the actual handling of information.
#4: AUTOMATIC ALERTS
When it comes time to renew contracts, Concord will automatically alert you when you need to begin reviewing contracts. These reminders are fully customizable, allowing you to have the ability to set them as far in advance as you would like.
