Electronic signatures are becoming an increasingly popular way for higher education institutions to streamline their administrative processes, reduce paper use, and improve efficiency. However, the cost of using an e-sign platform can be a barrier for some institutions.
To help institutions reduce the cost of using an e-sign platform, Kuali has developed a guide that outlines some of the key strategies that institutions can use to reduce their e-sign platform costs. Some of the key strategies highlighted in the guide include:
1. Negotiate Contracts: Institutions can negotiate contracts with e-sign platform providers to ensure that they are getting the best possible pricing and terms.
2. Use Open-Source Software: Institutions can use open-source software, such as DocuSign or Adobe Sign, to reduce the cost of using an e-sign platform.
3. Use Bulk Licensing: Institutions can use bulk licensing agreements to reduce the cost of using an e-sign platform, particularly if they have a large number of users.
4. Use Internal Resources: Institutions can use internal resources, such as IT staff or legal teams, to help manage the e-sign platform and reduce the need for outside support.
5. Use Integration Features: Institutions can use integration features to connect their e-sign platform with other systems and platforms, reducing the need for multiple platforms and potentially reducing costs.
By adopting these strategies, institutions can reduce the cost of using an e-sign platform, while still benefiting from the efficiency gains and other benefits of electronic signatures.
