Say goodbye to pen and paper and hello to efficiency with Kin’s eSignatures feature. Employees can use electronic signatures to sign documents directly inside of Kin – saving time and trees. No more downloading, scanning, and re-uploading!
Completing new hire paperwork or allowing existing employees to sign-off on a policy change is dramatically faster with eSignatures. Simply upload the paperwork, drag-and-drop fields where employees need to fill out information, then send it off to them in a few clicks. They’ll complete it electronically and send it back to you for review and final sign-off.
Getting started with eSignatures
eSignatures has a very similar workflow to how Kin’s existing Files feature works. You’ll upload a file to share with employees and they’ll be notified to complete it. Once they sign the file their HR Manager will be notified to verify its completion. You’re still able to upload files the “old-fashioned” way too, if you have a file that doesn’t need to be signed.
An electronic signatures is legally binding
Signing a document using eSignatures in Kin is legally binding and complies with the requirements of the U.S. Electronic Signature in Global and National Commerce Act of 2000 (ESIGN), the Uniform Electronic Transactions Act (UETA), and the European Union eIDAS (EU No.910/2014) regarding electronic signatures and transmissions. Each signed document includes an appended audit trail that tracks and timestamps various information (IP address, signer information) from the moment the document is submitted for signature through its completion.
