Benefits and Insights
Why use RightSignature?
Key differentiators & advantages of RightSignature
- True Technology Neutrality
Signers don’t need an account to sign, just an email address and any web browser. RightSignature is PC and Mac-friendly, with no downloads, no plug-ins, no hassle.
- Handwritten Signature
RightSignature’s exclusive signature pad enables the most realistic, wet-looking signature possible with online technology and produces a final document that looks just like it was signed with pen and paper.
With this option enabled, signers may select a handwriting-style font and type their names to create a valid e-signature.

- RightStep™ Instruction Bar
The real-time RightStep™ bar tells signers what they need to do next and includes clickable links to navigate straight to the next required action.
- NaviGuide™ Flag
The RightSignature NaviGuide™ is an interactive flag that moves up and down the document in real time, leading the signer to the next required field. It is the online equivalent of sitting with customers and pointing to the locations where they need to fill in information, initial, or sign.

A custom document subject and message provides signers with a clear idea of the documents’ business purpose and any special instructions.
