Required to "sign" certain PDF files?

We've got a few PDF files/forms from insurance co.'s, government agencies, etc, that have text boxes for filling in data and then sending the file back. Certain ones will let you fill in all the text boxes but then require you to "sign" the document before you can do anything with it. It seems the only way to send these back and forth between employees is to have everyone create these annoying adobe cloud accounts, so that once you "sign" a PDF form that you've filled out you can send it to the other person's adobe cloud account rather than simply saving it to your PC or emailing it to the other person. Is this dreadfully awful process the only way to go about this?
 
It could be annoying and "dreadfully awful" process, but that's the only way to keep accountability, especially when dealing with The Big Brother.

Adobe could probably sell you in-house signing services, but I am not sure that is your final goal.

It seemed like more of a way for adobe to require everyone to make user accounts on their website and use their cloud services since you only get 5 free signed document transactions :pt1cable:

The weird thing is that on one employee's PC they can actually fill out the PDF and save it with all of the data still there (except for X's in check boxes for some reason). Almost no one else has that option, and are required to go through the sign & send route. Their versions of adobe reader aren't different either...
