Rental Signature Capture System for Small Businesses

Signature Capture System

Significantly reduce the time it takes to locate and reproduce signed contracts by storing your customer’s digital signature right on the Alert contract image.

Customer’s signatures are stored on the electronic version of the contract in the Alert customer record.

Signature Options

Using the Topaz SignatureGem 4x5 signature pad, the Alert Signature Capture System enables you to obtain your customer’s signature in two ways simultaneously—in ink on the contract, and on a complete, reproducible digital contract image stored in Alert's small business CRM records. The dual functionality of the Signature Capture System allows your customer to see what they are signing while giving you the ability to store their signature for printing, verification and proof-of-receipt.

Increase efficiency

Tired of digging through folders, boxes and cabinets for hours (or days!) to find a customer’s signed contract? Save time, improve customer service, and reduce costs by easily finding, reproducing and electronically sending copies of signed contracts without ever leaving your workstation with small business CRM solutions specifically designed for the rental industry.

Legible Signature Printing

While we can’t improve penmanship, we can print perfectly reproduced, signed contracts to your laser printer!

New Fax and E-mail Features

Alert's rental management software includes a built-in document imaging system that makes it possible to create a PDF version of any contract on-demand for easy efaxing and e-mailing.

On the spot signing

The Topaz SignatureGem 4×5 is a durable large-sized electronic signature pad with digitizing pen. The signing area is large enough to accommodate paper forms or receipts for clients while you maintain a paperless electronic copy. The pen features interchangeable inking and stylus tips.

The Signature Capture System requires one Topaz SignatureGem 4×5 signature pad per workstation
