Integrating digital customer service tools has the potential to dramatically increase efficiency and speed within customer support teams. By making operations more streamlined and allowing advisors to delegate work to automated technology such as chatbots, banks experience reduced support times and costs. Advisors can capitalize on this increased productivity by focusing on more valuable client communications, such as face-to-face engagement.

One example is signature software. Using document sharing features in conjunction with a communication tool like video chat, advisors can walk customers through documents and close the conversation with e-signature - rather than the time-consuming process of mailing documents to be signed.

The term electronic signature - or e-signature - refers to anything that demonstrates an intention to sign something. For example, a scan of a hand-written signature or a recorded verbal confirmation. For an electronic signature to be secure and compliant, it must meet the requirements of the Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act (ESIGN) and the Uniform Electronic Transactions Act (UETA).
