Nitro named eSignature leader by GigaOm for second straight year

Sam Thorpe, Chief Product Officer at Nitro

Nitro Software, an SaaS eSignature and PDF document solutions provider for businesses, announced that Nitro Sign was again named a Leader in the GigaOm Radar Report for E-Signature Solutions. Nitro Sign provides firms with high-trust electronic signatures that meet or exceed global security and compliance standards, including multiple layers of protection and identity verification. The solution also offers flexible integrations and APIs.

Why did Nitro Sign stand out in this category?

Identifying Nitro Sign as an industry Leader for the second consecutive year, GigaOm acknowledged that the Nitro platform supports highly secure, end-to-end digital document processes with a seamless customer experience. In its assessment, GigaOm’s 2023 Radar Report for E-Signature Solutions awarded Nitro Sign high scores for the following:

  • extensive compliance support, offering direct eID integration for over 30 jurisdictions
  • leading data field configuration and analytics functionality
  • best-in-class pricing tiers with minimal add-on fees
  • automation and digitization across document workflows
  • scalability and security due to its high-trust global data center strategy, extensive security provisions and tamper-proof seals at the signature (rather than envelope) level

GigaOm also noted that Nitro’s broad portfolio can support even the most complex use cases. “The global adoption of eSignatures took off during the pandemic, and it continues to accelerate. Businesses of all sizes, around the world, benefit from the agility, efficiency and productivity eSignature technology enables,” said Nitro Chief Product Officer, Sam Thorpe.

What was the methodology of the assessment?

“And while Nitro delivers a seamless customer experience, as the GigaOm Radar Report attests, there’s far more to our eSignature solutions than just enabling people to sign documents. Nitro has done the a lot behind the scenes to deliver an easy-to-use, high-trust solution that ensures clients have the proper security, can avoid fraud and stay compliant.”

GigaOm’s Radar Report notes: “To be a significant player in this space, an e-signature solution must not only support the core e-signature process (preparation, distribution, execution) but also offer extensive compliance support, scalability for high-volume use cases, and flexibility across a range of countries, languages and interfaces. Functionality that allows a user to draw a signature on a document is not sufficient to be considered in this report.”

The report added, “businesses are looking for end-to-end process capabilities rather than standalone solutions. In other words, e-signatures are viewed as a core component of broader document management suites, potentially not something an enterprise would purchase on its own. SMBs will shift gradually to this strategy but will follow a similar path….”

In its 2023 Radar Report, GigaOm delivers evaluations of 14 leading eSignature vendors, an analysis of each of their offerings and provides expert guidance on how to choose the right eSignature vendor for both small and medium business and enterprise requirements.
