A full-service real estate and construction company, Stan White Realty & Construction has been in business more than 30 years and currently manages over 700 vacation rental homes. The company also offers long-term residential management services, commercial leasing, construction and remodeling services, among other things.
Managing that many properties meant a lot of paperwork, averaging between 600-1,000 contracts per month. Emailing, faxing and postage/shipping were a huge part of the staff's day when trying to get contracts signed. It took on average 7-10 days to receive a signed rental contract, and usually longer to receive payment.
To get rid of this inefficient, expensive and slow process, the company's technology provider, VBL Technologies, chose EchoSign to implement e-signature technology. EchoSign was chosen for its ease-of-use, as many of the Stan White employees had been there for several years and were not used to change.
“Change is always a bit scary, but our people love EchoSign. With EchoSign we get most of our contracts signed with payments within 24 hours. We’ve seen some contracts come in as fast as two hours, and in some cases the rep closes the deal over the phone,” said Heather Muir, Stan White Realty & Construction.
Beth Bourg is a Marketing Manager at Adobe EchoSign, focusing on the real estate industry and other vertical markets. With over 6.5 million users, EchoSign is the leading e-Signature provider, delivering efficiency and security to the signing process for all types of contracts and documents. Real estate and related organizations such as Atlantic Realty, Ashoka Lion, Foxtons Estate Agents, PayYourRent.com, Pulte Homes, Realty Inspection Services of Dallas Fort Worth, Rockies Rentals, Stan White Realty & Construction and VacationRentalPros use EchoSign to streamline and accelerate the signing process and improve customer satisfaction.
