DocuSign

With technology now at the forefront of almost everything we do, our aim is to utilise it more than ever, to enhance efficiencies and streamline client communication.

We understand that in our role as a professional services firm, we are responsible for extremely sensitive and confidential information. Therefore, we must remain vigilant in keeping this information secure and minimising the risk of exposure to hackers and the ill-intentioned.

We also understand that as a document intensive business, paper production has a significant impact on our environment. By utilising technology, we can dramatically reduce our carbon footprint and conserve natural resources and landfill space.

Will all of this in mind, we are pleased to offer an exciting new service, which will transform the way you sign and return documents to us.

Enter, DocuSign.

What is DocuSign?

DocuSign is a cloud-based, electronic signature service that allows you, our clients, to receive, sign and return documents to us with just a few simple clicks.
No more printing, signing, scanning and emailing back signed documents. And certainly no more visits to roadside post boxes or your local post office.

Is DocuSign Secure and legally binding?

Under Australian law, a written signature is not necessarily required to validate an agreement. Contracts are generally valid if legally competent parties reach an agreement, whether verbally, electronically or written on paper.

DocuSign uses world-class security software to protect the integrity of your electronic signature and all associated computer systems and networks that process your data.

How does DocuSign work?

You will receive an email asking you to review and sign documents.
By clicking on “Review” it will take you to a secure website to access the documents.

Note: You can sign on almost any device with an internet connection – mobile phone, tablet or computer.

Follow the prompts, adopt a signature and hit finish. Once completed, we will automatically receive a signed copy of the signed document.

Need multiple people to sign the document? The same email will be sent to them for signing. Once signed by all parties, we will receive one completed document, with all signatures. No need to forward the email on to other signatories or email us back once completed.
