Digitizing contracts, documents, and paperwork keeps the filing organized and within the palm of the realtor's hand. Keep up with the 21st century with these three apps that make it easy to sign, transfer, and share documents on the go.
SignMyPad (Android, iOS, Windows)
Add your signature to a PDF document using this app. Simply select or upload a PDF document from your email, the Web, or a cloud-based service. Save the signed document and send it to the required party. Since the app uses a real, legal signature instead of a saved digital signature, it's safe from identity fraud, and the finished document itself is rendered un-editable to prevent tampering. The pro version also comes with a feature that tags the PDF with the user's GPS location.
Docusign (Android, iOS, desktop, Web)
Upload, edit, sign, and send documents with this service. Docusign accepts a range of common file formats, among them Word, Excel, PDF, text, and images. It links to popular cloud storage services like Dropbox, Evernote, Google Drive, and One Drive, among others. The service comes with standard and custom tags and fields, which users can simply add to a contract, or save as a customized template, for future use.
CamScanner (Android, iOS, Windows)
An app that turns your phone or tablet into a scanner using its camera. With it, you can scan, store, sync, and share content across mobile devices and computers. Use it to scan documents, receipts, invoices, notes, business cards, certificates, and more. You can edit your scan's quality: crop or make the text or graphics clearer and sharper, for instance. It comes with a search function as well, to help you sort and locate files. It has a feature that can extract text from images, and an option for making annotations and customized watermarks on documents. Save and send your scans as PDF or JPEG files.
