Beyond the basics
Collecting legally-binding eSignatures is a must-have for any document automation solution. Industry standard OAuth 2 authentication plus 256 bit SSL keep docs secure and comes standard with both DocuSign and PandaDoc. Both products also comply with UETA, ESIGN, eIDAS, and other standards that ensure legal compliance in the US, EU, and additional countries. Each organization also offers a robust developer center with a developer sandbox that includes coding examples. You’ll also be able to store as many docs as you’d like since both include cloud storage. But compared to DocuSign, PandaDoc packs advanced features into a single SDK and accompanying API. The DocuSign solution is spread over three tiers: bare-bones Basic API, middle-of-the-road Intermediate API, and its most pricey Advanced API offering.
Every organization wants to add its logo, colors, custom font, and other style elements to their sales and marketing documents to stay on-brand. This also includes the ability to upload images and video elements to make your quotes, proposals, and contracts more interactive. PandaDoc API’s supports drag-and-drop functionality so maintaining a consistent, impressive, and personalized look is a breeze. You’ll need to purchase at least the DocuSign API Intermediate plan to custom brand your documents.
