Foxit eSign has had the pleasure of working with and supporting the needs of ReachOut Capital. While ReachOut Capital has been busy diligently and expertly supporting the financial needs of small and midsize businesses, Foxit eSign has provided an electronic signature solution that they can count on. In this case study, we’ll dive into why a cost-efficient and the user-friendly signature solution was important for ReachOut Capital and how Foxit eSign helped along the way.
ReachOut Capital truly values their customers, and it shows in everything they do. As small businesses grow and seek to accomplish their goals, getting the capital they need to fund important needs and milestones along the way is critical. This is where ReachOut Capital comes in.
As they state on their website, ReachOut Capital’s mission is “to empower every business to succeed by providing the best financing options – when they need it and how they need it.” ReachOut’s goal with each and every client is to support their individual needs and provide the critical financial component needed in a convenient and cost-efficient manner.
Electronic Signature Usage Before Foxit eSign
Prior to discovering Foxit eSign, ReachOut Capital was already using electronic signatures as part of their sales and paperwork processes. In fact, this particular client had already previously used two other electronic signature software solutions.
In the financial industry, obtaining quick and reliable signatures is an essential part of completing transactions. What many financial companies are finding, however, is that electronic signatures are also an important component to ensuring compliance with industry mandates. In ReachOut Capital’s particular situation, none of the lenders they work with will accept any invoicing, financing, or lending paperwork unless the application is signed electronically.
Why Foxit eSign Was Approached by ReachOut Capital
When Foxit eSign was initially approached, ReachOut Capital was continuing with its steady growth in the financial industry, but they were finding themselves frustrated with their current eSignature providers. Steep costs proved ineffective for reasonable budget maintenance, poor customer service was counterproductive, and the software itself felt limiting.
Randy Webster, Senior Underwriter with ReachOut Capital, made the first initial contact with Foxit eSign. Randy had been dealing with repeated frustration and headache for over a year and a half with the two previous providers and was ready for a change. In discussions with our sales team, it was relayed that ReachOut Capital required certain functionality and accommodation for successful electronic signature utilization:
Finding a more cost-efficient and budget-friendly solution for document signing and sending was a top priority.
Improved Customer Support:
There was an immediate need for more responsive, supportive, and insightful customer support that could help improve the overall experience and usage of the eSignature software.
Not only was ReachOut looking for a more robust and capable eSignature solution, but they also needed one that was tailor-made to support fast and easy usage at a moment’s notice.
Compliance with regulatory requirements is an important component in the financial industry. For this reason, ReachOut Capital sought a solution that could help them easily maintain compliance without further complication.
Why ReachOut Made the Switch to Foxit eSign
The ability to provide a superior electronic signature solution at a lower price point than their current and previous electronic signature providers
Top Rated Customer Service:
Having easy access to a team of specialists ready to support and offer guidance whenever needed
As with any new software, there was an expected learning curve while Randy and his team learned about all that Foxit eSign had to offer. But the team of Foxit eSign experts dove right in and ensured that ReachOut Capital was set up to successfully implement the new electronic signature solution into their day-to-day business needs.
