Maximize your eSign capabilities with embedded signing and sending

eSignature features are most effective when they don’t require extra thought or added hassle. When you choose PandaDoc API over SignNow API, eSign capability can be integrated right into your app functions without any stress, thanks to our standard Embedded Signing and Sending functionality. A digital eSign template of your choice can be smoothly inserted into your app, making for simple workflows and – most likely – very happy, decidedly un-exasperated customers and clients. Plus you can send copies of these signed documents to anyone who might need them on file. SignNow API affords a similar functionality, but their embedded sessions come with the added step of creating a special invite when sending your eSign documents (warning: if you want to avoid creating the invite, you have to write that into your code).

Maintain your company image with custom branding

In case it wasn’t clear already: PandaDoc API strives for simplicity over complexity. Our in-built branding features allow you to upload your company logo for display in outgoing emails, Workspace account correspondences, and a host of other digital documents – a clear way to maintain brand continuity and uphold company culture. Our drag-and-drop tool makes image uploading easy (you won’t find this function with SignNow). All this comes packaged with our API business plan, whereas it’s only part of SignNow’s premium offerings online (and isn’t highlighted as a feature of their API services).

Aggregate data with PandaDoc API’s take on the “PowerForm”

Supersize your templated eSign forms, official waivers, orders, proposals, contracts, and/or almost any other essential document by activating PandaDoc API’s version of the “PowerForm” function, an effective tool that keeps frequently-used forms on hand and calls them up whenever you need them for redistribution or re-evaluation. This feature also gathers information for repurposing into other documents (i.e., you won’t have to re-enter client or customer data if you’ve already got their info on file via a “PowerForm” doc). It’s an efficient time-saver that’s an integrated function and included in the PandaDoc API pricing plan. Thinking you can receive the same service from SignNow API? You’re not technically wrong – but keep in mind SignNow’s basic plan comes at nearly twice the price of PandaDoc API’s entry-level partnership.

Make your documents work for you with customizable fields

Steer clear of SignNow API’s complex coding with our effortless drag-and-drop feature for adding informational fields to your business documents. Include space for client or customer signatures, dates, initials, checkboxes, or any other data you may need to collect. PandaDoc API even allows for masked text fields, which keeps sensitive information private (as in, viewable only by you and your receiving party). No text tagging necessary – just think, point, click, and create.

What you get when you switch to PandaDoc

Safeguard your information with OAuth 2.0 authorization

Developers rejoice. PandaDoc API provides encryption, storage, and transfer of your most sensitive material–all reinforced by integration with OAuth 2.0 authorization and all at a fraction of what you’d be paying with SignNow. You can rest assured your business’s private information and eSignatures will be kept safe and secure and that all data will be conveyed only to those clients and customers who are properly authorized. Plus, any information shared between your business apps will be protected against an IT breach. Conclusion? Choose PandaDoc over SignNow if you’re looking to defend your data in a way that’s both efficient and affordable.

Extend your reach with PandaDoc API Bulk Send functionality

Business growing faster than you expected? That’s great news. Having trouble getting your API to keep up? That’s less great news. But don’t worry: PandaDoc API has you covered with our enterprise plan Bulk Send capability. Use bulk sending to relay a single templated document to up to 1,000 recipients. Say goodbye to multiple rollouts of essential documents that take up too much precious time and energy; our Bulk Send seamlessly syncs with your rapidly growing address book to enable you to reach as many customers, clients, or contractors as you’d like. And unlike what you may encounter with SignNow API, PandaDoc API will work with you to scale this high-powered function to your budget and to help you stay on top of your expanding enterprise.

Keep your finger on the pulse of your business activity with PandaDoc API webhooks

Always be in-the-know. When your documents are updated, completed, deleted, or edited in any way, PandaDoc API’s Webhooks feature alerts you to the status change. And the best part: You choose the endpoint URL, and PandaDoc API integrates accordingly. Use Webhook notifications – all of which are only sent to those with confirmed identities – to access detailed breakdowns of your documents’ comings and goings. Never be in the dark about your digital docs again.

Unleash your potential with unlimited document templates

Need to create a sales proposal template? PandaDoc API can help. How about a business quote template? Or a form cover letter? Or an invoice? PandaDoc can help with all of those, too. Our API lets you build an endless variety of digital document templates, allowing you to mix and match a number of editable informational fields, which can ensure your outgoing docs accurately reflect your company workflows…and that they get you the data you want when you want it. You can construct as many templates as your business can imagine, all at no added cost. Again, SignNow may offer unlimited templating capabilities, but we argue their processes aren’t as intuitive or as easy on the eyes. Why not keep things smooth and simple by choosing PandaDoc over the competition?
