minimize paper and time with e-signatures

I am a new employee, so I may be wrong, but it seems like alot of resources (time, paper. etc) are wasted routing a document to as many as 20 people to sign, then copying and sending a copy to each person to keep. Wouldn't it be far more efficient to have e-signatures, perhaps like the ones used at the store when you make credit card purchases, and a central electronic location for document storage and retrieval. A "signature pad" could be shared by entire offices or divisions.
