Most Agrello customers have the same problem - there's a large amount of contracts that need to be prepared and singed and they want to find a way to spend as little time as possible doing it.
The main user of Agrello on the Southwestern Ventures side is Katre Luts, the Project and Finance coordinator. She's the one who prepares the contracts and sends them out to be signed. The types of contracts she deals with are agent contracts, contracts for services and employment contracts, which usually have only two signers. Before Agrello came into play, all contracts were managed in Google Drive or Teams. To collect signatures, Katre had to email each contract individually and wait for a signed copy to be returned. This was too timeconsuming and made them look for another solution.
Since Southwestern Ventures' main goal was to save time on sending contracts back and forth, they are now handling the entire contract process on Agrello platform. Katre prepares the contract in PDF format, uploads it to the Agrello platform, specifies the signers and sends it out for signing. On their end, the signer is either Katre or a member of the board. The other party can sign the document with Mobile-ID, Smart-ID or Agrello signature. Depending on the contract, Katre also adds viewers to the document - for example, the accountant or any other employee who needs to be informed.
The biggest time saving effect compared to Digidoc comes from the fact that they need to make far fewer clicks to see the contents of the document. Agrello's dashboard view also gives a good overview of the signing status and allows Katre to personally remind people who have not yet signed.
