Their need…

Thrifty Car & Van Rental manages thousands of contracts on the daily and at an effective, fast pace. Every transaction in the rental industry requires a rental agreement. With a need to make the customer application forms even more efficient, they looked to turn to making their agreements digital. Forms are long, take up lots of paper, and are often completed incorrectly.

“We wanted to make sure documents were completed properly.”

Thrifty Car & Van Rental reported that

“Many users can set up applications within the business at Thrifty. The transition from physical signatures to eSignatures was very easy. Signable has changed the way documents are managed because it keeps records secure and stops paper copies from being used.”
