Legal Document Electronic Signatures

Automate Collecting and Filing Legal Documents with Electronic Signatures During Visitor Registration

If your people are your most important asset, your intellectual property (IP) is likely second on that list. Helping you protect your IP is core to Greetly's product and mission of securing your workplace. 

Greetly's visitor management system can collect electronic signatures on one or more nondisclosure agreements (NDAs), waivers, or other legal documents during the sign in process. As the world's most customizable visitor management system, documents can be electronically signed directly on the visitor self-service kiosk, touchless on their own smartphone, or during the preregistration process. You can have different types of visitors electronically sign different legal documents, or none at all.

Documents with eSignatures are immediately converted into PDFs, timestamped with the signature date, time, and location. PDFs with electronic signatures are securely stored and immediately available for review in your digital visitor log. You can also automate pushing signed forms into the cloud-based storage of your choice.

How Our Visitor Sign-in App Can Help You


You need to protect your IP and to pass compliance needs. In the old days, you might try to coordinate electronic NDAs on legal documents ahead of a visitor's appointment. But when they arrive, who knows whether it has been signed? Was it filed correctly?

Or, you could have a receptionist or admin staff have visitors eSign documents when visitors arrive. Awkward. Plus, now you have important paper documents that you need to file, or digitize and then eFile. That is, if they are not lost. When you need to review these NDAs, can you actually retrieve them? Do you have repeat visitors sign a new document every visit since you have no one way knowing whether they have a current document on file? 

All of this is solved by incorporating legal document digital signatures directly into the visitor registration process.

Your Legal Document

Greetly is the most customizable visitor management software in the world. That's why we give you (OK, your lawyers really) complete control over the legal document. Upload into the Greetly admin the exact NDA, waiver, legal consent, or another legal document you need electronic signatures on. Greetly will present it in an easy-to-review digital format with a clear signature block.

Multiple Legal Documents

Need digital signatures on more than one document? Perhaps a nondisclosure agreement and a separate recognition of safety protocols? Did we mention customization? With Greetly you can present, one, two, or even 10 documents for visitors to eSign.

Sign On Kiosk or Touchless or Before They Arrive

As an innovator, Greetly was the first cloud-based visitor management to offer touchless sign in. Guests can complete the exact same registration process on their smartphones before they arrive or while sitting in your lobby. Or, of course, using a self-service visitor check in kiosk. Whatever they choose, you will capture the exact same eSigned documents to keep you safe and in compliance.

Stay Secure and in Compliance

The visitor registration process gives your organization an electronic signature on your legal document, with the date, time, and physical location of where it was signed. This protects your IP and keeps your workplace in compliance.

How Legal Document Electronic Signatures Work

A Visitor Checks Themself In

Using touchless visitor management or via a kiosk, a guest check themselves in when they arrive at your workplace. The check in process can capture any visitor information you need, visitor photos, print badges, take temperatures, and much more.

The Visitor Is Presented With Your NDA

During the check-in process, your visitor is presented with the exact NDA (or waiver or consent agreement) that you uploaded. They can review the agreement, and when they are ready, use their finger to create a digital signature.

The NDA is Securely Stored

Upon completion of the check-in process, Greetly gets to work sending host notifications which can include visitor photos. It also securely stores PDFs of all electronic documents, including the time, data, and physical location where it was signed. And just like that your IP is safe and your workplace compliant.

Not a problem. Greetly will capture electronic signatures on any legal document you upload to our system. Hey, we aren't lawyers, we're just lowly are software developers dedicated to keeping your work environment safe and productive. 

What happens if a visitor does not sign the NDA?

Can I customize the legal documents?

Greetly will present to visitors the exact legal document you upload to our system. What your lawyer wants, your lawyer gets.

Can you collect eSignatures using touchless visitor management?
