“While the shift from paper to digital has been underway since PDF was introduced more than 30 years ago, 2020 was a tipping point. Digital documents have become the currency of business productivity — the centerpiece for how businesses, governments, and consumers communicate, collaborate and transact, thereby setting the agenda for the future economy,” Balachandran added.

Prior to 2020, e-signatures had started to gain some traction in APAC, but this grew exponentially last year.

Over three-quarters of APAC respondents (76 percent) said they e-signed more documents in the last six months of 2020 compared to late 2019 and early 2020, with adoption highest among millennials (61 percent).

More than half of APAC respondents (53 percent) said they signed for the first time last year, mostly because they had not been offered the option in the past.

While business contracts were the most popular type of document to be e-signed in India (77 percent), it was less common to e-sign them in Singapore (57 percent).
