Digital Signing & Up-And-Coming Startup Trends

From May 23-24, the Kdan team attended the 2019 Echelon Asia Summit at Singapore EXPO to show off our new e-signature tool. Echelon is a technology event held yearly by E27, which focuses on showcasing up-and-coming technology in the Asia-Pacific region, specifically for startups. As an exhibitor, Kdan got to build relationships with incubators and coworking space providers, make connections with local startups, and promote our new e-sign app, DottedSign.

DottedSign allows the user to easily import documents and request signatures from specific people, thus eliminating the need for paper contracts and optimizing workflow. To introduce this new app, our team gave away free trials at Echelon. This event allows startups to form collaborations and strategic relationships with other companies. Over 250 exhibitors and 15,000 were in attendance–including people from a wide range of industries such as law, automation robots, e-commerce, web design, and online payment.

Conference attendees had some excellent feedback for our team. While the comments we received were overwhelmingly positive, we fielded many questions regarding DottedSign. Here is an overview of the most frequently asked questions we received at Echelon that you might be thinking about as well:
