Adobe eSign vs. Docspo

Looking for an alternative to Adobe eSign? Meet Docspo.

Beautiful proposal document.

Adobe eSign is great if you like the old ways. We're looking ahead.

In 1993 Adobe launched the portable document format, better known as PDF. Being the inventor of this well adopted technology it is no surprise that Adobe eSign is for sending and signing PDF documents.

Nowadays with all of the recent innovations customers expect more. A soon to be 30 year old PDF invention won't be enough to impress your clientele.

Instead Docspo uses the latest technologies to provide an engaging customer experience. With Docspo you send your documents as web pages instead of a static PDF. This gives you three benefits:

  • It's responsive - It looks good no matter what device your client uses.
  • It's interactive - Let your client choose between different packages, deals, fill out forms etc.
  • Editable - With our built-in web editor you can edit documents on the go.
