RPost To Host Live Webinar On Moving To Electronic Contracts
LOS ANGELES, CA – February 18, 2009 – Session with Cox Business discusses real use case on how the cable industry leader has leveraged e-contracts to cut the quote-to-cash time, reduce costs, and increase customer satisfaction.
With today’s fast pace of business, parties regularly discuss, negotiate and informally settle upon terms over e-mail. But when it comes time for the final signature, many still revert back to paper-based transactions which involve a juggle of printing, signing, scanning, faxing, and/or mailing forms. This process can be inefficient and expensive, slowing deals down and diverting resources away from more profitable activities. Various options for electronic
contracts are available but businesses often hesitate to adopt them due to lack of comfort with the technology and lack of confidence in the laws governing electronic signatures, among other reasons.
On Friday, February 27th at 2 p.m. eastern time, Dan Hoffman, Director of Technical Operations for Cox Business, and Michael Stevens, Managing Director of Huron Consulting Group, will join Zafar Khan of RPost to discuss the reasons for moving to electronic contracts and compare different types of solutions. RPost will provide an overview
of the current e-signature laws and also demonstrate how the company’s eSignOff(TM) service can help businesses close deals faster, cut FedEx/mail cost, and eliminate fax and scan.
Attend this webcast and you will hear:
•E-signature law discussion
•Real-world examples of industry leaders cutting costs and speeding transactions
•Third party analysis of electronic contracting industry competitive landscape
•RPost’s eSignOff(TM) service overview
Who should attend:
