Obtaining a signature to prove the delivery of goods is one thing, but signing off timesheets for an accurate record of time, work and activity undertaken on-site is a completely different affair.
Whereas a delivery signature may be the final step in a cycle of business, customer signatures on timesheets initiate a whole new range of processes. Factoring in the fact that sign off on services provided may represent an investment of hundreds of thousands of pounds, it is easy to understand why the added factors of signature capture with time stamp and GPS location are increasingly demanded by businesses across the world.
Using electronic signature capture improves the time management of mobile workers (no more waiting for a faxed timesheet) and accelerates the ability to invoice in a more timely fashion. This is proven to improve cash flow and reduce queried invoices.
