SEATTLE - January 28, 2009 - DocuSign, the industry leading provider of on-demand electronic signature and electronic contract execution solutions, today announced its new DocuSign Professional Edition and DocuSign Corporate Edition are available now at www.docusign.com. The new product and support offerings were designed specifically to create a scalable cost-effective on-demand solution for businesses of all sizes to replace the expensive and inefficient process of transporting, signing, tracking, storing contracts and capturing business data.
DocuSign Corporate Edition also features the industry's first 'Smart Envelopes™ for the precise management of complex workflows that require multiple documents and signers. A sender using Smart Envelopes uploads the documents to be signed and can easily define policies for who can view each document and the precise order in which they are to be signed by each signer. By giving the sender complete control and visibility into the contract execution process and streamlining otherwise complex contracting processes, Smart Envelopes dramatically reduces NIGO ("not in good order") rates, enables enterprises to complete more transactions and ultimately accelerates the speed of business.
Businesses today are under tremendous pressure to manage the bottom line. By eliminating inefficient business processes, such as paper-based contract execution, organizations can dramatically reduce costs, accelerate business transactions and potentially avoid staff reductions. According to Xerox research, businesses print more than 18 trillion pieces of paper each year and HP predicts that by 2010, 53 trillion pages will be printed worldwide. DocuSign customers can slash up to 90 percent in paper processing costs and reduce overnight express shipping fees by 80 percent, while increasing sales contract close rates - resulting in a significant net increase to their bottom line.
"Given this tough economic climate, corporations are moving to replace inefficient business processes and adopt proven software-as-a-service offerings that deliver immediate business benefits," said Tom Gonser, founder and vice president of product strategy. "By automating the contracting and data collection process with solutions such as Smart Envelopes, DocuSign enables efficiencies that cannot be achieved or replicated by any other electronic or paper-based process. Already, DocuSign has executed more than 20 million signature events worldwide."
