Cambridge ‘David’ beats global Goliaths in electronic signature technology
Cambridge Science Park business Legalesign has started 2020 as lead provider of electronic signature in the UK and joint top in Europe in a heartening David and Goliath rise to global glory.
Its ascendancy is underlined by the latest figures from the G2 market comparison website – the leading global comparison portal for electronic software.
Its winter report puts Legalesign way ahead of rival big name competitors. G2 is recognised by the software industry for its genuine peer-to-peer reviews and detailed feedback that can influence potential new clients.
Legalesign scored joint 94 per cent top ranking for satisfaction in the European chart and 92 per cent in the UK, while some of the big well known brands trailed way behind.
CEO Ben Eliott said: ‘What a fantastic way to start the new year. We remain committed to maintaining this great result throughout 2020 and continuing to deliver the best service to help business and profits grow.”
Legalesign’s electronic signature software is used by law firms, insurance companies, property firms, recruiters, accountants, local government and government bodies.
It is described as “providing a quick, safe and environmentally friendly paperless way for smart businesses to sign contracts and agreements, saving considerable time and money and enabling business seeking to go carbon neutral to take a significant step forward in that direction.”
Legalesign was founded by Eliott who has 20 years experience in software development and holds an MBA from the University of Edinburgh where he wrote his dissertation on electronic signature, its legal basis in the UK and how it can deliver value for enterprise.
He added: “We believe Legalesign’s customer focus and wide ranging features meets all our clients expectations – and more. Our software enables clients to track documents, bulk send and adhere to privacy and GDPR compliance.
“We also customise our services to meet our clients’ personal requirements and constantly look at new ways to develop even more features to stay ahead in our field.”
