DUBLIN, February 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
eFax, a leading provider of digital faxing solutions and a brand of j2 Global, Inc (NASDAQ:JCOM), today announced the launch of its new electronic signature service, which enables users to drag and drop their signature stamp onto any document or use their finger to draw a signature that can be resized and placed anywhere in the document. With eFax's electronic signature, users can quickly and simply sign faxes wherever they are and on whatever device they are using, rather than having to wait until they get back to the office to print, sign and scan the document.
With eFax electronic signature, users simply apply their signature stamp onto any document via the web interface, or they can finger sign documents through the touch screen of their mobile and tablet devices, with the free eFax app available for iOS and Android operating systems. With more and more small-business owners utilising their smartphone or tablet to access information and documents, there is an increasing demand for applications and features that enable secure access and effective remote working.
"With the addition of electronic signature, eFax helps close those business deals faster," said Paul Kinsella, General Manger, j2 Global Europe. "Mobile professionals can sign important documents simply with the touch of a finger from their mobile device, bringing a whole new level of convenience to the solution."
"For our customers who are constantly on the go," Kinsella continued, "the ability to quickly sign and send documents such as purchase orders, invoices, expense reports and timesheets without having to return to a desk or office to print, sign and forward hard copies, enables them to conduct business wherever they have to be. eFax electronic signature makes this happen."
eFax enables business professionals to sign, send, and store their documents online through a digital document management system. eFax Electronic Signature is available at eFax.co.uk/Electronic-Signature and the new eFax mobile apps are available today in the App Store for iOS users, and through Google Play for Android users.
