Key Features

jSign offers a variety of key features that help those in transportation streamline document workflows and improve the efficiency of day-to-day operations.

When you send a document for signature, simultaneously set a due date and schedule reminder notifications for all recipients. This is perfect for clients or carriers that are on different time zones or work remotely over the road.

Security is a priority, which is why the jSign platform utilizes several modern security measures to protect your documents from tampering.

jSign lets you draw a digital signature, type a digital signature, select from predefined signatures, or upload an image that contains a handwritten signature. Options are perfect for a team that requires flexibility.

Have documents that are used on every shipment? Create templates to streamline routine paperwork and save time. With templates, you upload a document, add signature lines and more, then save it to use as often as you need. Skip the setup process and get straight to signing.

It’s easy to set rules around signing order. Enable signing location restrictions to manage jurisdiction and establish sequential or parallel signing orders. With jSign, you can also enable signing location restrictions within the document and ensure all signatures are compliant.
