DocuSign–a history of efficiency and security
DocuSign has a long history of working to change how business gets done by empowering customers to send, sign, and manage documents using a device-agnostic platform. A highly specialized partner, DocuSign’s narrow focus has helped to establish them as leaders in eSignature solutions.
While very useful in automating certain contractual processes, many leading HR solutions are otherwise hamstrung by the need to print, sign, and scan contracts–a process that, in certain regions, even requires original, signed paper copies to be filed and stored. These processes are wasteful, inefficient, and can delay crucial projects. DocuSign’s eSignature solution provides the services necessary to circumvent these manual processes, allowing customers to sign and send key contractual documents online.
DocuSign’s Electronic Signatures are legally binding in most business and personal transactions in almost every country in the world–complying with the US Federal ESIGN Act and Uniform Electronic Transactions Act (UETA) as well as international laws and statutes. Their eSignature solution is built to meet the most rigorous security industry certification standards, using the strongest commercially available data encryption available.
DocuSign’s peerless security standard has made their solution viable among notoriously stringent public-sector customers, who demand both world-class security and availability. This commitment to security is reflected in DocuSign’s FedRAMP (the Federal Risk and Management Program) Authorization for their DocuSign Federal solution–a distinction currently granted to only 86 Cloud Service Providers in total as of August 2017.
“Our solutions have carrier-grade availability and we take security extremely seriously. We have completed our FedRAMP Authorization and our solutions are HIPPA compliant.” – Angie Halderman, Global Strategic Alliances Director, DocuSign
The missing ingredient–integrating with Microsoft and partner solutions
As the trusted leader in the eSignature space, DocuSign has a long history of successful partner-to-partner (P2P) efforts within the Microsoft partner ecosystem. This is no accident, as DocuSign has worked hard to provide partners with application program interfaces (APIs) that allow DocuSign’s technology to seamlessly integrate with popular, complimentary solutions that often leverage Microsoft technology.
Through a long-term strategic partnership with Microsoft, DocuSign has made its eSignature applications widely available from within Office 365, Dynamics 365, and SharePoint–eliminating the need for customers to jump from application to application and strengthening the value of customers’ existing Microsoft solutions.
“DocuSign is integrated across the Microsoft technology stack, having developed connectors for Office 365, Dynamics, SharePoint, SharePoint Online, and Outlook. Additionally, we are currently ramping up and familiarizing ourselves with Flow as we have seen a strong interest in the product among business users.” – Angie Halderman, Global Strategic Alliances Director, DocuSign
By integrating simply and effectively with modern business solutions, DocuSign has turned themselves into an effective P2P enabler–offering their technology to partners as a key ingredient in designing end-to-end business solutions. Having long designed technology with integration in mind, DocuSign has been able to focus on doing what they do best while leveraging their extensive partner channel to cover gaps inherent to their organizational focus.
