Traditionally, onboarding can be divided into 4 phases. There is the initial development, ongoing process and training, retention and then finally comes separation. But what happens to these dynamics between an employee and their employer when all of this is remote?

Learn how one of our partners, KhataBook, an online business app that helps manage ledgers, turns to Signeasy to onboard new hires quickly!
When COVID-19 forced KhataBook's entire team into a remote work setup, their paper-based document processes were no longer going to cut it. They needed a digital solution – and fast.
KhataBook builds utility solutions for India's thriving SMB sector. Their first product, an Android App that enables local businesses to record the credit they extend to customers using a digital ledger, went viral. The app has since been downloaded more than 10 million times. With an impressive suite of angel investors behind them and an unstoppable growth record, KhataBook found themselves outgrowing wet ink signatures and looking for a better solution.
Like countless other businesses across the globe, KhataBook's digital transformation was catalyzed by COVID-19. The company had always relied on paper-based processes to onboard all of their new hires, and the same was true for any employee-related paperwork. If a contract needed to be signed, it was printed, marked with wet ink, and physically filed away.
When the swift transition to remote work rendered that system unusable, KhataBook seized the opportunity to pivot to a digital solution. And while that decision may have been brought on by extenuating circumstances, it's one that will change their paperwork workflows forever.
KhataBook is currently using Signeasy to automate their internal HR paperwork processes – namely collecting signatures for employee agreements, new hire contracts, and provident funds.
One of their most-used features is our "template links," which is particularly handy for users who need a large number of people to sign the same type of document. For example, if you need hundreds of employees to sign a consent form, or if you're onboarding a cohort of a dozen new interns.
Instead of uploading a document to Signeasy and entering each signer's email address, KhataBook's HR team simply creates a document template, then shares the template link with everyone who needs to sign a copy. The link can be sent via email, messenger, even WhatsApp – whatever is best!
As a company that often handles documents that are dozens or even hundreds of pages long, KhataBook is also a frequent "fields" user. Fields indicate where signers need to provide information, which helps reduce errors, omissions, and unnecessary back-and-forth.
Disrupted by Covid-19, digital ledger app KhataBook needed a quick, paperless solution to onboard new hires.
