ApproveMe Launches WP E-Signature: Use Your WordPress Website to Sign Documents
ApproveMe Responds to Customers’ Frustrations of paying monthly fees to sign documents.

Los Angeles, CA – ApproveMe, the software development company that helps business owners automate their approval management process, has announced at the 2014 Los Angeles WordPress “WordCamp” convention the launch of their newest WordPress plugin that simplifies the document signing process for small businesses.  ApproveMe’s WP E-Signature transforms one page of any WordPress website into a secure, legally binding and easy to use document signing application (but without the monthly fees).

“We consulted with hundreds of WordPress site owners while developing WP E-Signature. We really wanted to make sure we got it right” said Kevin Michael Gray, CEO of ApproveMe.  “Originally we set out to make a “one size fits all” document signing plugin but found out very quickly people wanted to customize E-Signature.  Some needed to automate Terms of Service agreements others wanted Dropbox Sync and auto-responder email automation's.  With six months of development behind us we deciaded to literally start from scratch and put the power of signing documents back in the hands of small business owners.“

With WP E-Signature Getting documents signed using your WordPress website has never been easier.  In addition to the features listed below, we’ve removed paper entirely from the process and have built a secure UETA and ESIGN compliant WordPress plugin to facilitate document signing, signature tracking and a detailed audit trail that will hold up in court.

While signing documents online used to be a headache for small businesses, WP E-Signature takes literally 60 seconds to setup and is 100% hosted on your WordPress website.  Before WP E-Signature online businesses had to pay monthly fees per user which can add up to hundreds sometimes thousands of dollars a year.  WP E-Signature solves that issue today by transforming users very own WordPress website into a feature rich document signing application (without the monthly fees).

WP E-Signature’s features include:

°Audit Report - We include a detailed audit report with viewer details, ip addresses, document analytics, document id# and signer history.

Use Your WordPress website to Sign Legally Binding Documents

You've probably known for years that you should be protecting yourself and your company with legally binding documents and contracts, but the time, effort (and cost) to send a document using a third party service (or God forbid the old paper contract method) has been far too much. If that's the case, you're going to want to stick around.

ApproveMe, has announced at the 2014 Los Angeles WordPress “WordCamp” convention the launch of their newest WordPress plugin that simplifies the document signing process for small businesses; WP E-Signature.

WP E-Signature is a legally binding WordPress plugin for document signing similar to DocuSign, Hello Sign and others you already know. The difference between WP E-Signature and other document signing platforms is their sole purpose, nay their mission, which is to make it ridiculously easy for you (and your clients) to legally Sign Documents using YOUR very own WordPress website (not someone else's). WP E-Signature (similar to Woo Commerce and Easy Digital Downloads) has been built as a core WordPress E-Signature plugin with a library of extensions and integrations to choose from, so you can customize your Document Signing workflow to work with many of their E-Signature add-on automation extensions.

“We consulted with hundreds of WordPress site owners while developing WP E-Signature. We really wanted to make sure we got it right” said Kevin Michael Gray, CEO of ApproveMe. “Originally we set out to make a “one size fits all” document signing plugin but found out very quickly people wanted to customize E-Signature. Some needed to automate Terms of Service agreements others wanted Dropbox Sync and auto-responder email automation's. So with six months of development behind us we deciaded to literally start from scratch and put the power of signing documents back in the hands of small business owners.“

Pippin Williamson creator of Easy Digital Downloads and WordPress.org contributor says, “WP E-Signature is tackling a majorly difficult problem and are knocking it out of the park with their ease of use, intuitive UI, and powerful features.”

Grow Your Business with WP E-Signature
WP E-Signature was built with document signing automation in mind. Choose from dozens of add-ons and third party integrations like Singer Input Fields, Stand Alone Documents, Signing Reminders, Dropbox Sync, PDF Export, Paypal, Freshbooks, Google Drive, and more.

Get Setup in 30 Seconds or less...
ApproveMe believes in simplicity and ease of use. To that end they've created a WordPress plugin that can be installed in two clicks and set up in 30 seconds (or less).

Step 1: Add a Signer
If you have a web design contract that needs to be signed by one of your clients, once the admin settings have been saved, simply select "Add New Document" and prepare your document for signing.

Send-an-Invite

Step 2: Signers Receive an Invite Email
Once you select "Send Document" WordPress E-Signature will send a unique signer specific email to each signer with a link to your document and website where they will sign your document.

Invite-Emails

You can even use your site to Sign Documents
Once a signer clicks "Review and Sign" guess what website they'll be going to, to sign the document... YOURS! We've created a standard document signing page with your website name for all documents being signed.

Document-Signing-Page

Signature Pad:
When a signer clicks on the "Sign Here" pad they can draw their signature and insert it in the document.

Sign-Here

Completed Documents:
When all signatures have been received, all signing parties including the admin - is sent an email notification letting them know the document has been signed, and where they can go to preview the signed document.

Audit-Trail

Encrypted Security & Audit Reports:
Security is kind of a big deal... especially when it comes to signing documents. Each signature, document, and data related to your document is encrypted and stored on your very own website database. Admin users have the option of setting up SSL certificates to further protect and encrypt their data by selecting the option in the WP E-Signature settings panel. Additionally... You will receive a detailed audit report with viewer details, ip addresses, analytics and signer history on EVERY document. After all... shouldn't you know who exactly is viewing your documents?
