A customer contract is a legally binding agreement between you and the customer concerning the sale of goods or digital content or the supply of services (with or without goods).
You use the traditional post service or email (attachment) to send a contract to the customer and wait for it to return signed.
As a result, you are not sure whether the customer has received the contract, read it, or perhaps have already sent it back. Such situation is very common for people in sales and may feel annoying. But there is a solution.
You can create your own contract using the functionality of template and customer can add their 'electronic' signature withing Splynx. Such approach eliminates the costs and hassle of printing, scanning and delivery.

Documentstype in drop-down list;
Add button in order to add a new template;
