[ Update: Sunil loves SFNewTech fans so much, he has promised to give away free promo code for the EasySign App to the first 5 readers who email contact @ easysignmobile.com with the subject line: “SFNewTech” ! Go for it! ]
Sunil Patro started off his demo with a question “How many of you have signed atleast 1 document in the last 2 months.” When almost everyone raised their hands to indicate a yes, Sunil declared “So, I am at the right place.”. He then proceeded to introduce Easy Sign – an iphone, iPad app that makes signing of all kinds of documents quick, easy, digital and green.
Sunil started off by saying how in the summer of 2009, he received a job offer while vacationing at the beaches in Riviera Maya, Mexico. He thought “How awesome would it be, to be able to sign these documents on my smartphone and avoid all the hassle and wastage of printing and faxing documents?”. The idea for EasySign app was born right there. From that point on, Sunil decided to put all his efforts to creating this paper-free, signature on-the-go solution.
Sunil did a full end to end demo in which he started with an agreement documents, applied his signature from the app, added the date and got an email with the signed document from the easy sign app.
EasySign was officially launched in the apple app store in August of 2010. It was a dream come true for Sunil, because the launch happened while Sunil was hanging out on a beautiful beach, and so was the original idea – conceived at another beach earlier.
Sunil believes it’s a sign of destiny.
Since it’s launch, the App has been receiving great reviews from its users who use it for both business and personal documents. The Company’s mission is to make the best product available in the market to sign all types of documents using any mobile device, thus providing a quick and convenient paper-free solution in any setting from anywhere and at anytime.
Zosh, Sign It! and Signmypad (iPad only) are some apps that provide services similar to what Easy Sign provides. However, according to Sunil, some of these apps only support PDF documents while others are buggy and crash a lot, making them unreliable.
As for his app, in Sunil’s own words..
EasySign does exactly what it promises!
Under the hood
Technologies used to power the EasySign service (on the server side) include AWS EC2 (cloud server), Windows Server Infrastructure and PDF tools.
