  • To enhance document security among signers, the ability to include recipients as "Copy" will be limited.
  • Users will be able to request the signing of a Business Associate Agreement (BAA) to ensure compliance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).


Fax.Plus

This makes sure your faxed documents are stored in a fully encrypted and secure archive. Moreover, kindly note that we do not accept documents in the form of an email to be faxed out. All faxes must be transmitted exclusively through our secure application to guarantee the highest level of security.
  • The integration with Zapier will be deactivated, but you can continue to make use of our API service to seamlessly incorporate faxing into your existing system.
