Unlimited users, transactions, signatures, packages, parties and documents.
» Simple pricing, no upsell
You get all features in all plans, including branding, integration and APIs.
» No vendor lock-in
Your digitally signed HTML and PDF documents are easily downloaded by all parties.
This calculator allows you to estimate your database size.
A typical 1-page document may use about 30KB.
100KB per transaction is a reasonable estimate if unsure.
Use 2500KB for HR onboarding packages with many documents.
Choose the one that suits you best. Shared and private hosted service includes all server and network operations, OS updates, 24x7 monitoring,
firewalls and security scans, as well as off-site storage of encrypted backups. Regardless of the deployment option selected, your service runs in its own distinct web application and database
unlike competing Software-As-A-Service (SaaS) providers that co-mingle all of their customers users and data in a single service.
Shared hosted: Has a non-refundable $100 setup fee, but no additional hosting fees apply. Your service runs on a
Yozons-provided and operated server along with other shared hosted customers.
Private hosted: Has a non-refundable $250 setup fee, starting at an additional, non-refundable $1200/year for a 2GB RAM server (4GB, 8GB and 16GB also available). This service runs on a
Yozons-provided and operated server for your private use and uses your domain name and SSL certificate.
On-Premise: Has a non-refundable $400 setup fee, but no additional hosting fees apply. This service runs on your server running Linux (Red Hat, CentOS) that you
own and operate in your data center using your domain name and SSL certificate.
To maximize your ROI and reduce risk, we recommend you start with a smaller database size and expand when you succeed.
It's easy to migrate between any of the deployment options above, so we recommend piloting with shared hosting.
NON-PROFITS: Yozons offers a free bump up in your preferred license size so you get more for less!
Your satisfaction is guaranteed. If you terminate early, Yozons will provide a refund for any unused months of service.
It has never happened, but if our software were to fail to perform during the first 90 days, Yozons will refund all of the licensing and setup fees.
While Yozons has not paid to be "accredited"
by the Better Business Bureau (BBB), we are proud to have earned an A+ rating.
The only complaint filed against Yozons since our founding in 2000 was a case of mistaken identity: the complaint confused Yozons with
one of our customers. Of course, Yozons provided all the help it could to resolve the dispute with the correct party.

Enterprises have trusted our patented, commercial-grade software since 2000
About Yozons Technology - We pronounce it YO-zahnz
Yozons™, Inc. provides high quality, commercial-grade, secure, trusted electronic signature and e-contracting services to
a select set of discriminating small, medium and Fortune 500 companies.
Our products have been field tested in a large variety of different markets by customers since 2001 after we invented
"digital certificate-less" web-based electronic signing technology.
Yozons is a unique technology provider that continues to grow organically every year via referrals by servicing the needs of our customers.
If you prefer mass marketed offerings from the likes of Microsoft, McDonald's and Budweiser over those from Linux, local restaurants and brewpubs,
our small business may not be right for you.
We e-work to live so you can too.
We're dedicated to enabling businesses of all sizes to succeed by providing powerful, open e-contracting and electronic signature technologies.
Yozons is proud that it's owned and operated in the United States of America.
The unusual word YO-ZONS means "swift motion."
In World War II, the "Code Talkers" radioed their coded messages based on the Navajo language because it was
not decipherable by the enemy and helped win the war in the Pacific. In this vein, Yozons ensures that business documents
can be shared and "Yo-Signed" quickly without fear of unwanted eavesdroppers.
Thirty reasons why Yozons is uniquely qualified to earn your business
Each customer gets a unique, private, commercial-grade e-signature web site, including its own web site URL, which can be in its domain if desired (i.e. esign.yourdomain.com),
and its own independent web application and database. Unlike other services, you are not just a user of a large third-party system that controls your data.
Our patent invented server-centric key creation, management and use for digital signatures with dynamic user authentication.
If end-users are not using a digital certificate or managing their own keys and generating their own digital signatures, the software likely infringes this patent.
All of our customers are companies, be they departments in large corporations, or small businesses. We rarely deal directly with consumers
and we do very little advertising as we work primarily through referrals and partners. We've relied on satisfied enterprises to drive our innovation
and revenues since 2001 rather than depending on investor-fueled self-promotion and low quality freemium gimmicks.
Full customer branding: URL, logos, all email notifications, etc. We have found that only disreputable
businesses intend to confuse and cover their tracks by hiding behind the service provider's brand. Also, when you entrust
your business with another company's brand, you run the risk of virus infections inside your business as well as those
you contract with with, in particular with phishing attacks.
Customers can start with our shared hosting service running on our servers that also runs the application of
other customers; or they can upgrade to a private web hosting server (and have their own domain name and SSL cert) where their server
is not shared with other customers; or they can run it on their own server in their data center.
Flexible deployment is a key enterprise feature because companies often start a pilot with the shared hosting services,
and then roll out big time on their own server. Or if they are like many big companies who have difficulty getting their IT to do these
things in a timely manner, they can run it on one of our private web hosting servers.
We can do this because each customer's deployment is fully independent, and thus we can backup their application and database and migrate it easily.
A single customer account can be used to manage multiple partners/channels or even their own customers (reseller).
While those partners will share our customer's branding for the deployment itself, each of the other groups can send out
documents/forms/emails that are branded to them (showing their logo, company name, address, phone, etc.).
All documents are fully encrypted when stored on disk.
The data inside the documents are independently stored (your data isn't locked inside a document) and are fully encrypted.
Transactions operate on packages that can contain one or more documents that flow between one or
more parties, with custom actions (like sending an email, changing data values, sending notifications to back-end systems...) at any step.
Data on a form can be visible to one party, but masked for another; required for one party, but optional for another.
Documents in a package can be visible to one party, but not available to other parties, or the other party may only have view-only access.
Documents in a package can be automatically removed if they are not needed in all circumstances.
Parties can be skipped if they are not needed in all circumstances.
Custom reports can be created that show selected data from your forms, and that data can be exported as
Excel or CSV files for further analysis or integration. These reports also allow users to keep track of the status of all transactions.
We charge on a database size license, so there's no concern for per-transaction fees, or per-document fees,
or per-user fees. One heavy user or 10 light users only pay based on how much data/documents they store in their database.
All of our customers get all of the features available. There are no extra fees to make use of advanced features.
We are fully web-based in that all of the documents are native HTML (standard XHTML actually). This allows it to
render correctly and natively on any browser on any device without plug-ins. Also, such documents can even be read by humans
in their native format (for any extreme legal challenge), unlike a Word or PDF file. HTML files are also dramatically smaller in size.
Because documents that are signed are in HTML, we are able to capture the exact HTML sent to the user when they sign,
giving us the ability to digitally sign that document precisely as they saw it. Of course, our customers can convert and combine
HTML documents to PDFs on the fly, such as if they email or want to print a set of documents or store them in a legacy document management
system. We even support TIFF exports.
Our audit trail consists of digitally sign documents and digitally signed data (the separately stored XML data
that populates the form fields) on each step from start to finish. Of course, it also includes traditional activity logs that
record user's IP address, web browser type, accurate timestamps, etc.
Our forte belongs to customers who repeatedly sign the same type of document/form as they need to set up the
document once, and then all of their users can use it as frequently as necessary without having to worry about any errors in
the contents of those documents.
We are able to deliver an ever increasing number of pre-built forms/documents so customers can make use of them
out of the box, yet they can also tweak them as necessary for their individual needs. We already offer the federal W-4, I-9,
HIPAA-compliant Business Associate Agreement, etc. And we also offer a flexible "build your own one-time agreement"
so a user can just type in a contract (or copy it from Word) and get a signature on it without having to program anything.
We can offer pre-built forms because the document and related configuration can be exported as XML so it can be imported by others.
All of the software programming for custom forms and process flow is done using the web application itself.
No traditional programming is necessary. Yet you can change field values, perform calculations and do conditional logic.
We offer a simple Test and Production version control system. This allows documents to be created or updated
and tested without impacting production transactions, and when ready, they can be put into production without any downtime.
It also allows you to run Test transactions without cluttering/mixing such transactions with real transactions.
We offer a To Do list that shows all transactions pending for a specific user or a group of users.
Every email sent is recorded, and if there's a bounce or reply, it is automatically correlated with the original email.
Our user management allows for unlimited numbers of groups to be created, each containing one or more users.
This also allows a manager, via the reports, to have access to all transactions of the people he/she manages, while allowing regular
users only the ability to see their own transactions.
Our software is open source, available under the AGPL, as well as commercially licensed. This protects your
investment no matter what changes in the future.
Our digital signatures are based on 4096-bit RSA key pairs (server-generated and controlled per our patent),
SHA-512 and XML Digital Signatures. Nobody is more powerful and secure in terms of the keys and the hashing.
Our data encryption uses 256-bit AES so even if you walk away with our disk drives or a copy of a backup, the data is secure.
Our users can choose pass phrases up to 100 characters (letters, numbers, special characters, etc.), and we never store the
password in our system so it can never be leaked.
We live what we believe
Clear, fair and predictable prices for easy budgeting, rather than per-use or per-user.
This allows you to start with minimal financial risk no matter how big you expect to grow.
No pressure sales and no long term commitments ensure you only buy what you want for as long as you want.
We don't use slick marketing or bait-and-switch to hook or trick.
Some competitors will take any and all customers, often luring indiscriminate users with free gifts and free beginner services,
with the misconception that growth at all costs makes them winners. Yozons does not accept or keep customers that operate in unethical ways or are belligerent because
of their management "style" or previous bad experiences with other vendors. Yozons provides unparalleled service to customers who are professional, ethical and
seek mutual success.
Yozons believes there are better places to visit than Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco, Waikiki beach in Hawaii or even Starbucks for coffee in Seattle.
It's not that these places are bad, just that you'll rarely find gems among the hordes.
Privacy, with encryption on disk and over the Internet, as well as a private database and web application for each customer
maximizes your security while minimizing exposure through accidents, hacking or theft targeted at big data aggregators.
Your contracting system should carry your brand, not ours. Viral marketing to promote our technology shouldn't be your priority, and it's not ours.
We do thrive on referrals and hope to win your approval and recommendation.
No spamming or marketing based on your usage and who you conduct business with. Such metrics and data mining belong to you, not your vendor.
Source code should be open to improve security, transparency and allow more ideas that benefit everyone. Vendor lock-in with closed systems never benefits the customer.
Encryption, digital signatures and document formats should use industry standards for quality, longevity and utility even if you decide to no longer use the software in the future. Technologies change but your documents and data need to be accessible to you as long as want it, not just as long as you continue to pay.
Do it yourself is always an option and even encouraged to keep you in control and highly flexible.
Everything is configured online.
