It’s no surprise that educational institutions use a lot of paper to keep their systems running smoothly. There are admissions forms, loan documents, grant paperwork, and many other documents that need to be signed regularly.

The benefits of using eSignatures in education
Faster document turnaround time.
Many documents requiring signatures in educational institutions have hard deadlines. These deadlines are important for students to be able to get their applications in, research proposals approved, or receive financial aid, among other things. This makes document completion not only important, but crucial for students to achieve their educational goals.
HelloSign cuts out the manual effort associated with submitting paperwork for students, since they can fly through filling out their documents online. Students will be happier because they can get their paperwork in faster, and administrators will be happy that all their documents are electronically stored in a central location.
Increased document accuracy.
Dealing with thousands of students’ paperwork every year can also mean that paperwork sometimes comes back incomplete, illegible, or incorrect. It’s a pain and waste of time for administrators to request changes or corrections on such time sensitive documents.
Improved student experience.
Filling out paperwork isn’t fun for anyone. Documents get mixed up or even lost, making a stressful experience for students or offices managing the documents.
Using eSignatures gives students a convenient signing experience when filling out important school-related documents. They can also sign from whatever device is most convenient for them: smartphone, tablet, or computer. When students can sign their documents from anywhere, they’re happier with the improved efficiency.
