SAP SDK for DocuSign Signature Appliance

Seamless Integration of Digital Signatures with SAP Applications

The SAP SDK for DocuSign Signature Appliance (formally known as CoSign) enables any SAP application written in ABAP to easily include the power of standard digital signatures. ABAP is the standard language for SAP applications.

The connector provides ABAP methods to sign PDF files and verify their digital signatures. The connector also enables “data buffers” or content of any type to be digitally signed and verified.

The connector is in production use at SAP installations in the transportation, energy, and healthcare markets. SAP application developers and integrators can use the connector to enable auditable and secure online approvals of documents. DocuSign digital signatures can also be used to guarantee that data has not been changed since it was signed.

Key Benefits

  • The integration enables a completely electronic workflow, saving the costs of printing, scanning and copying paper documents.
  • Integrate digital signatures with SAP business processes and workflows to speed approvals.
  • Eliminates printed documents for signing, enhances collaboration for virtual project teams, and field workers, across departments and multiple locations.
  • Proven compliance with governance, retention and national/international regulatory standards.
