What is eSignature?
The eSignature project uses DocuSign, a digital signature application that allows users to securely sign, initial, and enter other information on an electronic document rather than a physical copy. High use forms have already begun to be incorporated into eSignature, with more forms being added weekly.

Benefits of using eSignature
Faster Signatures: Routine approval processes can take weeks because physical documents must be walked or mailed for physical signatures. With eSignature, documents are automatically routed through the approval process as they are signed, eliminating timely travel.
Easier Storage: eSignature utilizes electronic documents, eliminating the need to scan and store physical documents.
