The Right Way: Venmo is Like Money, But Better

By: Daryl Bernstein / Thursday, August 16, 2012

Our new series “The Right Way” profiles RightSignature power users, revealing their success secrets and the technology tools they use every day.


Venmo makes peer to peer mobile payments fun. Facilitating payments between any two users with a bank account, Venmo’s mobile apps offer a convenient replacement to cash. RightSignature’s Steve Stormoen spent some time with Venmo co-founder Andrew Kortina to learn how Venmo seeks to disrupt money itself.

To someone who’s never used Venmo, how would you describe it?

Andrew Kortina: Venmo lets people make and share transactions with friends.

When friends go out and have fun together--group dinners, cabs to the next spot, weekend trips, bachelor parties, lunches, coffees, etc--there’s an awkward moment when you have to figure out who’s paying and how to split it. Our apps for iPhone and Android make paying easy and social, so it becomes part of the fun, less of a burden, and a way to capture and share the fun experience you just paid for with your friends.

This video really says it all:

What’s the story behind Venmo? Where did the idea come from?

AK: About 2 years ago, Iqram, my co-founder was visiting me in New York for the weekend. He forgot his wallet, and ended up writing me a check to pay me back for everything we did. We both thought, “why aren't we (and more importantly, why aren’t all of our friends) using Paypal or some other app to pay each other back? We should be.” But when we looked around, all of the options we found were clunky and awkward for using with friends, and more appropriate for checking out on some website. So we designed Venmo, and made it fun, conversational, and social, just like all the other apps we saw our friends using.

What has been the biggest challenge Venmo has faced? How did you overcome it, or how are you planning to overcome it?

AK: One of our biggest challenges has been just letting people know that Venmo exists. Chase is running ads during the Super Bowl for their mobile payment app. We don’t have that kind of marketing budget, so we rely on our users to spread the word about Venmo.

Our advantage, though, is our design. We are designing our product to be easier to use, more fun to use, and more optimized for mobile (vs desktop) compared to our competitors. Our users aren’t tied to one bank, either: with Venmo, any 2 people with any 2 US bank accounts can pay each other. Finally, some of the things that make a service like Paypal a good option for online transactions---like on Ebay, where you don't trust the other party in a transaction---make it a little inconvenient as a way to pay friends. For example, with Paypal, it takes several days to withdraw your money, which is not so bad if you're doing an Ebay transaction, but not cool if you're trying to get the cash your roommate just gave you. So, on Venmo, you can withdraw funds overnight.

Since word of mouth is so important, we encourage users to share Venmo by continually improving the experience and trying to make it so amazing that they really want to tell everyone else about it.

Tell us how you use RightSignature, and which 4 other tech tools you can’t live without.

AK: I use it for signing all sorts of legal documents, of course! Printing and signing is just as old fashioned as writing a check, so I feel like in some ways Venmo and RightSignature solve similar problems. I also love Spotify, Dropbox, Asana, and Github.

What’s next for Venmo? What does the future hold for you?

AK: We want to give people even more opportunities to use Venmo. We get lots of feedback from users who say they love using Venmo with friends, and they want to use it at more places. So we’re figuring out what that looks like, and, of course, continuing to improve the core experience of paying friends.

In 5 years, we hope to be the app people go to whenever they want to make a payment using their mobile.

ScanSnap and RightSignature Complete the Paperless Office

By: Daryl Bernstein / Thursday, August 9, 2012

When we’ve written on this blog before about strategies to achieve a paperless office, we’ve focused one side of the equation: the paper you don’t have yet. Using RightSignature to get documents signed circumvents the evil "Print" command, eliminating paper generation at the source.

Keeping contracts and documents online accomplishes half of the battle for a paperless office –– replacing paper-based workflows slashes your office expenses and makes your documents more mobile, actionable, and secure. However, RightSignature online document signing doesn’t address the (other) two-ton elephant in the room: those hulking file cabinets in the corner holding all your old documents.

Introducing ScanSnap

That's where the Fujitsu ScanSnap scanner comes in. We came across ScanSnap when we saw that it integrates with popular cloud storage services (and RightSignature add-on partners) Evernote, Dropbox, and Google Drive. As we got to know our new friends at Fujitsu, we realized we shared a common vision for helping businesses run more efficiently by taming the paper monster.

So how can ScanSnap help your business? First and foremost, with ScanSnap you can scan a document from paper to the cloud in one step. ScanSnap also features world-class OCR character recognition, and will convert your scans directly to useful formats like Microsoft Word or PDF. Finally, ScanSnap scanners are extremely portable, with the smallest model about the size of a coffee Thermos and powered solely by your computer’s USB port.

ScanSnap & RightSignature

Say your dealer in Omaha sends you a paper form by snail mail, and you need to get it signed by the manufacturer in Dublin. Now you can use ScanSnap to scan it straight into Evernote, then use RightSignature (with Evernote integration enabled) to send it for signature. Paper be gone.

Mark Lewis, Director of Marketing for Fujitsu ScanSnap, says:
We're excited to have our customers putting ScanSnap and RightSignature to work to boost efficiency. ScanSnap converts paper into more accessible digital files, and RightSignature enables documents to be filled out and signed without ever involving paper. These are highly complementary solutions in the modern paperless office."

Crain's NY Business: RightSignature E-Signature API Simplifies TuneCore Music Contracts

By: Daryl Bernstein / Wednesday, August 8, 2012


Today's Crain's New York Business story explains how Brooklyn-based TuneCore uses RightSignature to streamline music publishing and distribution agreements. TuneCore's platform is the leader in enabling artists to distribute their work on a variety of online music platforms, such as iTunes, Spotify, and Amazon MP3.

A new TuneCore service called Publishing Administration helps artists collect royalties when their music is used in any of dozens different ways, including in video games, on YouTube, in live performances, in ringtones, and many more. This service requires a large volume of contracts, and TuneCore utilized the RightSignature e-signature API to generate contracts with custom data and collect legally-compliant e-signatures from artists around the world.

In the article, Jamie Purpora, the company's President of Music Publishing Administration, says:

It was really easy to build into the workflow. We didn't have to do anything on our end once it was set up. We can automatically send documents, forms and even schedule follow-up emails if a document doesn't get signed. It's been a really good thing."

Employment Forms Made Easy with RightSignature

By: Daryl Bernstein / Thursday, August 2, 2012

You’ve scouted, you’ve recruited, you’ve found those ideal candidates to help rocket your business to the next level. Now for the paperwork. The seemingly simple step of getting paper employment forms signed is a hassle, slows productivity, and can sap morale from the get-go.

You need to get new hires onboard efficiently and quickly – the days of printing, emailing, faxing, scanning, and loading up FedEx packages with hiring documents are over. Sending forms for e-signature with RightSignature makes a great first impression, showing new hires that they are joining a professional operation from the start.

Plus, managing onboarding with RightSignature improves compliance (employment forms must be fully completed before submission) and diminishes legal risk (hires must sign the exact version of the contract you sent).

Employment Forms for Online Signing

RightSignature is an HR power tool. Here are 8 employment forms you can get signed electronically to streamline your hiring process:
  1. Tax Forms. Get W-4’s signed quickly to withhold the correct amount of federal income tax with verified employee consent.
  2. Non-Disclosure Agreements. Safeguarding your intellectual property is vital— NDA’s keep confidential information private and protect your trade secrets.
  3. Questionnaires. Entrance/Exit interviews, Career Development surveys, and Job Empowerment surveys help employees receive effective training and support.
  4. Health Enrollment Forms. Make new enrollments seamless and simplify open enrollment periods with online distribution of plan selection forms.
  5. Employment Agreements. Leave no room for confusion by documenting all employment and compensation terms in a referenceable agreement.
  6. Direct Deposit Authorizations. Direct deposit participation makes payroll easier, keeps employees happy, and provides accurate, accessible financial records.
  7. Performance Reviews. Quickly dispense vital feedback and ensure performance reviews are read, understood, and signed, eliminating miscommunication.
  8. Employee Handbook Acknowledgements. Decrease legal risk and liability by having employees sign off on handbook terms annually.
Once documents are executed, RightSignature automatically archives and catalogues your documents for quick access in the future – digging through packed filing cabinets to reference old employment files is a thing of the past. Storing all your employment documents in one secure archive improves organizational efficiency and strengthens security. With a few keystrokes, you can search your archive by employee name, file name, job title, address -- any data that was entered in any document.

Hiring is integral to your business growth, and RightSignature makes getting employment forms completed easier than ever. And if you're looking for a full-featured HR software to track employee compensation, vacation time, and benefits, check out the BambooHR integration with RightSignature.
