DocuSign alternative - what makes BoldSign superior

BoldSign: a better DocuSign alternative

DocuSign is a powerful and popular contract management platform. It offers a wide range of features that help users to streamline their document signing processes. But it can be expensive and has limited features for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs). BoldSign is a more affordable and feature-rich alternative to DocuSign, making it an excellent choice for all scales of businesses.

Three Major Points Our Customer Shared

  1. BoldSign is easy to use.

  2. The learning curve is minimal with sleek and modern interface.

  3. BoldSign provides a quick and easy way for me to send forms to my business partners.

  4. BoldSign is much affordable.

Here are some of the key reasons why BoldSign is a better alternative to DocuSign.

Unlimited Documents, Templates, and Brands

BoldSign offers unlimited documents, templates, and support (email, chat, and phone). DocuSign, on the other hand, has limits on the number of documents you can sign per month, and you must pay extra for additional templates and brands. DocuSign’s annual envelope limit of 100 per user can lead to rapidly accumulating overage charges.

More affordable pricing

No more worrying about hitting document limits or having to upgrade to a higher plan just to handle more documents. BoldSign believes in honesty and predictability. Compare DocuSign to our pricing to discover the distinct advantages. Even with our paid plans, you can save up to 7x compared to DocuSign.

Better customer support

BoldSign eliminates the need for additional monthly fees to access customer support. Business users, regardless of the number of licenses they have, can benefit from the expertise of a dedicated customer success manager. The BoldSign team is always prompt, receptive to feedback, and easily reachable through multiple channels, including chat, email, and phone.

Dedicated Data Center

BoldSign operates dedicated data centers in the U.S. and EU. Rest assured that all your processes will be handled within these secure facilities, ensuring that not a single byte of your data is stored across regions.

Modern eSignature App

BoldSign was developed by Syncfusion, a world-leading component company with over 20 years of experience in development. Our application offers superior performance, a modern interface, and intuitive user experience. You won’t need any admin courses to get started, and you can send your first document out for signature in less than 5 minutes.

Powerful API

Our API is designed to handle millions of requests with ease. With an average response time of less than 200 milliseconds, it offers blazing-fast performance. Enjoy unlimited sender identities, custom fields, embedded sending, and template creation—all at no extra cost. Our dedicated developers are always ready to assist you in integrating BoldSign eSignature APIs seamlessly into your application.

Team Collaboration

Depending on your organizational structure, you can create multiple teams to mirror your company’s hierarchy.
