The efficiency of business operations hinges significantly on the ability to execute documents swiftly and securely. Electronic signatures have become indispensable in streamlining document workflows, offering the speed and legal standing necessary for modern business transactions.

Despite their importance, businesses and organizations, especially those that are bootstrapped, as well as those in emerging markets, face a significant barrier: the cost. This is where we have introduced Folderit eSign, catering to both affordability and functionality, presenting itself as a formidable alternative to the market leader, DocuSign as well as other electronic signature solutions.

The Challenge with Current Market Leaders

DocuSign has set a high standard in the electronic signature domain, offering a comprehensive suite of features that cater to a broad spectrum of business needs. Its global acceptance and robust security measures have made it a go-to solution for many. However, its pricing structure can be a stumbling block for small businesses and organizations in cost-sensitive regions. The need for a cost-effective alternative that does not compromise on quality or security is evident, prompting a search for solutions that offer similar benefits at a fraction of the cost.

Introducing Folderit eSign

In response to this demand, Folderit has introduced Folderit eSign, an electronic signature solution that marries affordability with functionality. Developed as part of Folderit's suite of document management tools, eSign is designed to simplify the process of signing documents electronically, eliminating the reliance on traditional paper-based methods. Its seamless integration with Folderit's Document Management System (DMS) enhances the user experience, offering a streamlined workflow from document storage to signature collection.

Key Features of Folderit eSign vs. DocuSign

Folderit eSign distinguishes itself from DocuSign through a variety of user-centric features:

  • Inclusive Workflow: eSign allows both Folderit users and non-users to participate in the e-signature process, ensuring broad accessibility.

  • Adaptable Signing Order: Users can tailor the signing order to their specific needs, accommodating both parallel and sequential workflows.

  • Versatile Signing Options: With options for drawing or typing signatures, eSign caters to diverse user preferences and device availability.

  • Comprehensive Documentation and Verification: At the completion of the signing process, eSign provides an audit trail document alongside the signed document, ensuring transparency and legal compliance.

This suite of features ensures that Folderit eSign not only stands as a competitive alternative to DocuSign but also offers a more tailored experience to users seeking simplicity, flexibility, and security.

Folderit eSign's Pricing Advantage

The search for a cost-effective yet efficient electronic signature solution brings us to a pivotal aspect where Folderit eSign notably diverges from its counterparts like DocuSign — pricing. While DocuSign's reputation and robust feature set come at a premium, necessitating separate subscription costs, Folderit eSign offers a financially savvy alternative that doesn’t skimp on functionality or security.

For reference, DocuSign offers several plans catering to different user needs, starting from the Personal plan at $10 per month (when billed annually) or $15 monthly. This plan allows for up to 5 documents to be sent each month for e-signature. For more demanding users, the Standard plan is available at $25 per user per month (with an annual commitment) or $45 monthly, which includes additional features such as collaborative commenting and custom branding options for up to 50 users. The Business Pro plan, geared towards even larger needs, costs $40 per user per month (annually) or $65 monthly, offering advanced features including in-person signing and bulk sending capabilities.
