The challenge

A deep dive with Collier.Simon

In today’s fast-paced marketing landscape, finding ways to streamline processes is critical to unlocking more time and resources for what matters most – making great work. This is magnified in talent acquisition and onboarding, as well as client SOWs, contracts and agreements.

With remote work continuing to be a reality, agencies have an expanded pool of talent to hire from. But they also face even more competition. So creating a fast, efficient way to identify, hire and onboard new people becomes paramount.  

The same challenge applies to contracting new clients and new projects – agencies can’t let administrative tasks and paperwork slow them down.

Collier.Simon, like many growing agencies, has seen an increase in the variety of documents that need to be sent, signed and stored, as well as the number of people involved in the process. As such, they needed a solution that allowed their process to keep the fast-paced momentum that their clients expect, even with more players and complexities involved. It was critical for them to find an easy-to-use eSignature tool that also provided a simple way to keep a growing number of documents organised and orderly.
