In a word, yes. Most documents nowadays are completed and signed online. eSignature technology means that signing documents electronically has become the norm. You simply need to upload the document to be signed, drag and drop text boxes to the appropriate locations and then start signing.
A transactions log between signing parties means that electronically signed documents are court admissible. Signature authentication ensures that they are legally binding.

The ESIGN Act, or the Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act, was a piece of legislation passed in 2000 to give eSignatures the same legal status as written, paper signatures.
The benefits of eSigning include a faster turnaround time for completed documents and contracts, better security and document racking, lower costs and the elimination of paper waste. When you eSign a document, you eliminate the need to print, sign and scan a document.
