Save valuable time and reduce unnecessary cost of paper, storage and consumables
Beginning in January, many desktops, conference tables and file cabinets in accounting firms nationwide are piled high with tax records. But some tax professionals have embraced the ‘paperless office’, clearly seeing that the benefits not only make their lives easier, they save them time and money.
Automating the workflow of producing tax returns is their goal. And integrating e-signature capture either begins the paperless process for them or completes it and provides a quick return on investment.
This tax season, accounting professionals across the United States were using Scriptel’s ScripTouch electronic signature pads to help increase their efficiency in the processing of tax documents and at the same time, reduced costs.
What was their motivation for e-signing? Here’s what some of them told us:
“Tax forms typically represent dozens of pieces of paper that we don’t have to print if we sign electronically.”
“We have a more legally binding, real handwritten signature on the efile tax form where previously we had a click-to-sign.”
“E-signing provides identity validation on important documents.”
“We not only save time, we save money on consumables like paper, printers, and mailing.”
Scriptel’s ScripTouchseries electronic signature pads went the distance in the intense lead-up to April 15th. They all feature rugged construction and high reliability for frequent transactions and long lifetimes. With no batteries to replace, Scriptel’s pads work without interruption and the active tethered pen is proven to perform flawlessly through more than 1 million signatures. Signature quality does not deteriorate with usage and wear.
Key benefits for tax preparers in using ScripTouch signature pads include:
- Decreasing the costs related to paper usage, copying, scanning, re-keying and storing, and in some instances, avoiding them altogether
- Eliminating manual work and potential for errors
- Increasing operational efficiency by automating some administrative responsibilities
- Improving the consumer experience by providing a faster and more convenient way to review and sign documents
