Signedocs.com (San Jose, CA, US) is a service site that allows users to send an electronic document to anyone in the world and receive their electronic signature in minutes. Monthly fees or per document charges are non-existent. In other words, the site is completely free and permits internet transfers of any document like contracts, forms, agreements, NDAs and so on. The service also enables secure document transfers by email to the specific person indicated in the email and also tracks and assigns tasks. For a website launched a month ago,signedocs.com definitely has made a functional signature service.
I caught up with Prateek Kathpal, founder of signedocs.com, and this is what he had to say:
Why is your site different than your competitors?
100% free, no charges, more security and new desktop plugins enabling electronic signing directly from applications such as outlook etc without even visiting the site.
What is your business plan or model?
SigneDocs is aiming to make a mark in the enterprise sector and offer free web based on demand services. We will be charging for enterprise licences and will be offering a “SigneDocs in a box” enterprise server as a product which can be hosted at any customer location and all documents can be routed through this server for adding electronic signatures and enhanced security.
Why did did you start this website?
There are still 90% people who believe eSignatures is too complex to implement and only rest 10% are in production or are in process of implementing them. This huge market has been overlooked and there are very few companies playing in this space.
How are you planning to market it?
Looking for investors/VCs
Any other information that you believe is relevant to your startup?
PDF based encryption and signatures are heart of the technology. We are slowly adding support for different types of documents.
In the grand scheme of things, it is welcoming to see websites that have a real world purpose in the technologies that they represent. Electronic signature service is a service that businesses in need of faster and more reliable measures of authorizing documents can take advantage. The service is quite straightforward and effective in its layout and signature procedure and will definitely be able to help people connect better in the real world with meaningful objectives. In fact, I hope more sites follow suit in spending as much time studying the market for a particular service need as they are in making money.
