By Luis Cárdenas

Evolution is the possibility of adapting to the conditions in which we we develop That same concept is applicable to transaction and, of course, the creation, signing and sending of all kinds of documents and / or contracts.

The handwritten signature or “paper” of documents every day becomes more obsolete, insecure and unsustainable because it implies a series of expenses and risks that can be saved and avoided with WeeSign for the benefit of all its participants and the environment. The current generations demand sustainable and efficient products without neglecting the validity and legality of commercial operations, so that the electronic signature every day advances more for its practicality in such a way that for more than 10 years, the law protects and validates the operations completed through electronic signatures.

Evolution, in terms of electronic or digital signatures, has been hampered by popular ignorance and unsustainable insecurity on the part of some of its participants and outdated lawyers. Adapt to the demands of commercial dynamism and take advantage of the technological tools that facilitate the day to day business is already a necessity.

With the electronic signature you can perform the operation from anywhere you are, without having to meet face-to-face, it is signed only once and the final document is sent automatically by email to its signers once it is finished.
 
The above implies a significant saving in time, resources and concerns eliminating human error.
