Helping government organizations move to paperless signing since 1997.

The longest implementation of e-signatures in US government.
FedRAMP Logo

In 1997 when the US Joint Chiefs of Staff needed a more efficient, secure and cost-effective way to sign their mission-critical documents and forms, they turned to eSignLive (formerly ApproveIt Desktop) – the first commercially off-the-shelf, electronic signature solution.

Since then, eSignLive has helped hundreds of government agencies across the DoD, federal government, and state and local government move to paperless processing in support of their e-Government, digital transformation strategy.

eSignLive is the first and only comprehensive e-signature solution to achieve FedRAMP authorization and deliver e-signatures in a FedRAMP compliant cloud. U.S. government agencies looking to implement e-signatures in the cloud now have immediate access to an approved solution, allowing them to meet cloud-first initiatives and stay compliant. Contact us to find out how your agency can leverage FedRAMP compliant e-signatures.

The e-signature solution of choice in government for more than 18 years.
