SharePoint Server 2013

  • By accessing the Nintex Workflow Designer in SharePoint, you can easily drag-and-drop the e-signature actions directly into new and existing workflows

  • When your workflow gets to the point where signatures are required, Nintex Workflow triggers the document to be sent to your signers.

  • Once the document is sent, each signer receives an email asking them to e-sign. eSignLive is easy to use across all devices. The software’s responsive design adapts to any screen, so signers enjoy a seamless experience on their preferred device. 

  • When everyone has signed, eSignLive embeds the signatures and audit trail directly in the document. This gives you a vendor-independent record that can be verified and stored anywhere. eSignLive then automatically archives the completed document in your SharePoint library.
