Build or Buy? Adding Digital Signature and Workflow Capabilities Into Your Application

Need to integrate eSignature capabilities into your native applications? Making the choice of whether to build or buy a solution can be tough, but we’re here to help. There are benefits to both approaches, but when you’re working on a tight deadline, integrating an existing eSign API can be a great approach.

Unlock Your Application’s Full Potential with the Right eSign Solution

Development teams often assume it would be easier to build their software’s eSignature features from scratch. A need for a solution that is fully scalable, secure, and flexible is at the top of their priority list. However, creating a specialized eSignature integration takes specialized expertise that many software teams lack. This is due to the need for certain regulatory and compliance measures that must go into place for the eSign function to be legally binding and secure.

In addition, some of the downfalls of building an eSign API from the ground up include:

  • Expensive to develop
  • Extra security risks
  • Extra development time
  • Extra costs needed to meet compliance requirements
  • Ongoing support

So, what do you do if you’re not building from the ground up? Find the right eSign API. Pre-built eSign APIs are a cost-effective, and quick way to integrate signature functionality into your applications—without the added security and compliance risks. That’s because all of the hard work of applying for and navigating audits for things like HIPAA and SOC 2 compliance are taken care of for you. And, systems are consistently monitored to ensure uptimes are where you need them.

More benefits of buying an eSign API include:

  • Budget-friendliness
  • Fast integration
  • Easy management
  • Scalability
