Proof Of Delivery - Implement Acumatica eSignature Plugin

How do I provide Proof of Delivery or Proof of Shipment with e-Signature? Think about running business operations capturing signature for delivery of goods, scanning those documents and attaching to your file system, manual process and time consumption resulting in lower efficiency and prone to mistakes.

Proof of delivery with e-Signatures lets you o automate your shipment process, improves efficiency, no paper work and best of all you can stay in compliance for HIPAA and other governing rules.

Many proof of delivery and chain of custody processes are largely paper-based, increasing the risk of mistakes, disputes, and lost or misplaced shipments.

Acumatica eSign can replace costly and paper-based systems with electronic signature capture, and complements existing workflow processes within Acumatica to make them more efficient, accurate, and cost effective. We can apply this plugin to your sales process, purchasing and shipments, extend it your project accounting or any custom pages/…
