Managing economic development and public service in a growing county puts demands on government that can negatively affect efficiency and fiscal responsibility. In an effort to simplify its processes and cut costs, Franklin County, Pennsylvania has developed a paperless document solution that uses Adobe EchoSign, for electronic signatures.
Not long ago, Franklin County’s 57 departments required vendors and employees to submit documents in triplicate for approval by county officials. Consequently, officials were buried in paperwork with inefficient audit trails. Now employees submit electronic forms to the county’s Laserfiche document management system, which prompts them to submit contracts for e-signature through Adobe EchoSign.
“Adobe EchoSign automatically delivers contracts to all of the required stakeholders, no matter how many signatures we need,” says Ed Yonker, application software specialist at Franklin County. “EchoSign gives us a clear audit trail every step of the way, adding visibility into government processes and helping the County meet compliance regulations.”
EchoSign automatically reminds officials about pending contracts and allows them to submit securely encrypted signatures from any device, including smart phones. By eliminating multiple paper copies, Franklin County saves money on printing, frees physical storage space, and enables a mobile workforce.
