I can't remember the last time I gave a client a paper copy of a document. All of my documents are prepared on-line, stored on-line, emailed to clients.

I don't need a receipt. Once I email the documents and they open the email, I have a tracking process that shows they received and opened the email.

I have apps on my phone that make it into my office away from my office. I can scan, make pdf documents, get into our Team Dropbox account, utilize DocuSign and more. I can store copies and I can provide copies (digital) to my clients and those who need them.

The vast majority of my document copies provided to my clients are sent via DocuSign. 

There are scanner apps you can use on your phone but, you can stop at any Kinkos or Staples, etc. to use their equipment to scan and email from there.

Can these be sent electronically? Our documents are all stored in the cloud and the agent can access these whereever they have an internet connection. The email for sending the documents acts as a receipt.  In the off chance your clients do not have a means to electronically receive documents, paper copies can always be picked up at the office.  Ask admin or your broker to make copies for pickup by your client.

That portable device we carry about has changed the way we can do business. Receipt comes in the form of acknowledgment via text or email.

It is that codger who says, "I ain't got no email' that truly disrupts how documents are signed and shared.
