New enhancements to DocuSign’s electronic document signing technology aim to make it faster and easier for real estate professionals and consumers with low-bandwidth Internet connections to use the online signing service.

Despite the widespread availability of broadband, 61.3 million U.S. Web users, or 49 percent of the total, still rely on low-bandwidth connections for Internet access, according to published Nielson//NetRatings’ research.

As online signing becomes more widely accepted in all types of business to consumer transactions, low-bandwidth connection support has become an increasingly important requirement, DocuSign said.

“In our part of the country, many of our clients have dial-up Web access,” said Malik Rashid, a RE/MAX agent in Bethesda, Md. The new enhancements to DocuSign’s service ensure that all of the company’s clients can use online signing, he said, and helps people who are traveling as well.

Using the new interface, anyone signing a document only needs a standard Web browser and a basic Internet connection.
