In a nutshell:
1 - Yousign is legal in the EU
2 - Yousign is a simplest alternative for compliant signatures on all file types (including PDF)
3 - Yousign is a certified eSignature provider
First, we’d like to give a nod to Adobe. By inventing the PDF format, they opened up a world of possibilities for collaborating on written documents. Possibilities which our application uses in sharing, authenticating, and signing PDF documents.
However, the fact that you are searching for an alternative to Adobe Sign is proof that, when it comes to eSignatures, it falls short of its competitors. At Yousign, we exclusively do eSignatures. And we believe there is still plenty of work to make signing as easy online as on paper.
Naturally, for us, comparing Yousign versus Adobe Sign is as much about principles as it is about features:
#1 we believe in safeguarding your agreements. When you sign with Yousign, your agreements comply to norms and regulations defined at the EU level and implemented in each of the countries we are present in.
#2 we believe in simplicity. Just because it sounds complicated doesn’t mean it has to be for you: we’ve designed Yousign to design the simplest alternative while still offering eIDAS-compliant eSignatures for each and every agreement you send through our platform.
#3 we are a certified provider of eSignature services. That means that each signature collected with Yousign will be recognized as legally-binding across the EU, unlike signatures sent through providers like Adobe Sign.
We hope you like it here,
Luc Pallavidino, CEO @Yousign
