    We have been utilizing Docusign, but have heard that Jotform provides a similar service. We are evaluating functionality and cost, potentially expanding to use of digital signing beyond the area it is currently being used for. What are the differences and benefits of Jotform?

    Hi Andrea!

    Thank you for contacting our support team.

    The DocuSign integration is actually only one of our E-Signature widget. We actually have a few more widgets that will handle electronic signatures with the same style and security. If you are interested in learning more about our E-Signature widgets, I do suggest that you take a look at the following guides:

    Please feel free to reach out if you have any further questions or concerns, we are always here to help!

    Thank you for your response. I am still not quite clear. Is Jotform just for form creation and then I’d still need a DocuSign account (or other similar 3rd party account) to gather electronic signatures through the Jotform form? Or is Jotform a one stop place for forms and signatures?
    Thank you,
    ~Andrea

    Hello Andrea,

    My apologies if I was not clear in my first response.

    Jotform is an online form builder and it can be used to gather signatures electronically via our own E-Signature widgets or you can also integrate with third-party software like DocuSign or Adobe Sign. However, in order to use the third-party software, you will need to have active accounts with those platforms.

    I do recommend that you take a closer look at the user guides that I mentioned in my earlier response to learn more about Jotform and our electronic signature services.

    Please do let us know if you require any further information regarding our E-signatures, we would be more than happy to build a demo form for your reference. We look forward to your response!
