1. A computer-implemented system having a processor for managing an electronic signature comprising:

  • a data collector implemented with the processor that receives one or more information items;

    a signature builder that builds a graphic-based electronic signature based on at least one of the information items that are stored remotely, the graphic-based electronic signature includes a set of icons wherein individual icons in the set of icons are respectively associated with at least one of the information items and the signature builder provides a link to the graphic-based electronic signature that is used as a signature where the graphical-based electronic signature is stored remotely in a network and accessed by the link; and

    wherein the individual icons in the set of icons are configured to initiate a communication application when one of the icons is selected in order to communicate via the communication application using the information item associated with the selected icon and the signature builder configures the individual icons in the set of icons of the graphic-based electronic signature to trigger a selection indication when the one of the icons is selected, the selection indication includes identifying information relating to the selected icon, wherein the communication application transmits a click response request to a click response manager upon the selection of the one of the icons and wherein, in response to receipt of the click response request, the click response manager generates a web response based upon the selected one of the icons to be interpreted by the communication application and transmits the response back to a recipient client device; and

    wherein a data store receives and stores the identifying information of the selection indication to provide a selection history that indicates which icons in the set of icons of the graphic-based electronic signature have been selected, the data store further stores click responses to track when a recipient selects the one of the icons in the graphic-based electronic signature and, when one icon in the set of icons is selected, the data store updates a record that indicates a number of times the one of the icons has been selected.
