Adobe Sign integrated with the eWitness Digital Preservation System

This is an ideal web service which automates the process to remotely create and approve documents and contracts (such as NDAs, proxies, agreements etc …), allowing for different types of electronic signatures.

Adobe Sign is a Cloud-based service that permits to replace traditional analog processes, with the implementation of digital processes and workflows, which provide for legally valid signatures in just a few minutes, speeding up signature processes.
