What can you use the app for?

PandaDoc is a paperless document tool that lets users send, sign and track important papers digitally. The online format makes it possible to instantly send a document from one person to another, even if hundreds of miles lie between them. No software download is required and users can accept documents in almost any format, including PDF, DOCX, DOC and RTF. The application connects with Dropbox and Google Drive so the user can easily integrate with the storage service they prefer. PandaDoc can be accessed on the web with any current browser and is compatible with Android and iOS. An audit trail is saved so users can see a complete log of every transaction, including user details, IP address, timestamp and signature certificates.
