Interview Summary:

Real estate professionals are quickly adopting electronic signatures to manage the paper flow and improve critical business processes. The National Association of Realtors is now offering its members an electronic signature service that provides a better option than driving across town to get a signature or forcing their clients to find a fax machine.

By automating the signing process, they achieve higher sales, increase client satisfaction and maintain a competitive edge.
