How to keep track of your eSignatures with Yousign + folk

Discover folk - the CRM for people-powered businesses

Contracts are the foundation of any business. They often mark major milestones, such as a new hire, the closing of a new client, a new fundraising event or a finalized partnership. Accelerated by the pandemic, most of our work has moved online in recent years, and contracts are no exception. eSignature tools are popping up everywhere, and among the lot is Yousign.

When managing multiple contracts, it’s easy for companies to lose of that word document you trying to get signed. “Has the Partner Program manager signed the contract?”, “Who are the angels that haven’t completed the fundraising doc?”, “How many clients are closed as of this week?”

All this data lives on your eSignature tool. And the solution to restoring order to it? Yousign + folk. Let us explain.

Stay on top of your e-signatures without any manual input

The folk + Yousign integration is one of our most exciting yet. Through Zapier, connect Yousign directly to your folk CRM so you can easily stay on top of documents. Here are just a few of the benefits of automating your e-signature tracking:

  • Gain time: instead on manually updating your CRM, allow the Yousign x Folk integration to update it for you.
  • Stay up to date: keep your whole team up-to-date on advancements on contracts in a single view.
  • Follow up: set reminders to follow up with contacts that haven’t finalized the signature process.

Leverage Yousign + folk for your specific needs

There are many ways you can harness folk’s Yousign integration. Here’s a few:

  • 🕵️‍♂️ Recruitment: when a candidate signs a document, automatically update their status on folk and attach the link to the recruitment contract.
  • 👊🏼 Fundraising: when an angel signs a fundraising document, move their card across the fundraising pipeline... all that’s missing is the wire!
  • 🤖 Sales: when new clients are signed, move them to close automatically with the integration so the whole team can stay up to date.
  • Partnerships: when closing a new partnership, keep track of signed contracts all throughout the process.

There are of course many other ways to use Yousign + folk. We’d love to hear yours!
