Professional staffing frequently requires extensive documentation to verify and certify qualifications and licensures. In the fields of technology, health care, finance, and accounting, Kforce is a recognized leader in providing high-quality consultants and direct hire personnel.
However, complying with client and regulatory requirements is often extensive and time-consuming. Kforce vendor services supervisor Ryan Coyle says highly skilled positions can require more than 20 separate documents, including profile forms and standard contracts.
“Vendor documents are typically signed by two or three stakeholders,” he says. “In the past, documents would be filled out by hand and scanned or faxed multiple times—a process that took several days and often resulted in an illegible copy.”
Kforce created simple workflows using Adobe EchoSign, for emailing documents among stakeholders. They can access forms and add e-signatures online from any browser on any device. When completed, a clear, archive-ready electronic copy is automatically sent to stakeholders, which reduces errors and creates a more reliable archive of records.
It also saves time. Coyle says his team has dramatically reduced turnaround time for document signing and processing—from two business days to less than two hours.
