Before chosing an e-signature platform I’d highly recommend considering whether you need a global or a local solution. The reason this is of high importance is that some countries have electronic ID’s that is unique to every citizen, allowing a greater security of the signer. So if you’re living in countries likes Sweden, Norway and Denmark where e-ID’s is used by a large percentage of the population, I’d highly recommend to go for a solution that enables the signer to sign with his or her NemID, BankID as well as the normal touch signatures (that everybody can use independently of their nationality). Furthermore some companies have specialized in certain industries meaning that if you’re an accountant, lawyer etc. you can actually get solutions where the order of the signers is adapted based on the document type you need to send. E.g. if you’re an accountant and want to send out the annual report. Instead of manually sending it front and back to each signer, you can chose the document type to be an “annual report” and the system will automatically send it between the parties in the order you’ve decided. If you’re looking for solutions that includes e-ID and thus has a higher level security and still suits all your mentioned requirements I can highly recommend the electronic signature solution called Penneo. T’ve specialized in industries such as accounting, lawyers, property administration, but also works very smoothly in any other industry. Other solutions on the market include E Sign Pdf and Hellosign, but last time I checked t don’t allow you to sign with national e-ID’s.
