SEATTLE – March 3, 2010 - DocuSign®,the leading provider of on-demand electronic signature solutions to the real estate industry, today announced a partnership with ActiveRain, the world's largest social network for real estate professionals. ActiveRain will drive awareness of DocuSign's e-signature technology through exclusive advertising, sponsorships, blogging and other online media vehicles to more than 175,000 ActiveRain members.
"It's the perfect partnership—ActiveRain gives real estate professionals the tools to use the Internet to extend reach and capture business opportunities. DocuSign's e-signature service uses the Internet to accelerate business and close deals faster," said Lauren Bernstein, vice president of operations at ActiveRain. "Adding DocuSign as a sponsor offers our real estate community another tool to increase success in a highly competitive environment."
To kick-off the partnership, DocuSign will be a sponsor of ActiveRain's Denver RainCamp to be held at the Inverness Hotel and Conference Center in Englewood on Tuesday, March 9. The fifth in the U.S. tour, the Denver RainCamp is a full day conference offering valuable content, presentations and innovations that help real estate professionals with social networking, blogging and business planning.

"In this economic environment, employing technology is the most cost-effective method to grow a business," said Dave Thorpe, business development director at DocuSign. "We are looking forward to extending our reach through ActiveRain and partnering to help real estate professionals learn how to effectively leverage technology like DocuSign's electronic signature service to close deals faster, safer and more efficiently."
More than 20,000 real estate professionals have used DocuSign to accelerate their business, with thousands more subscribing each month. Rather than driving across town to get a signature or forcing clients to find a fax machine, real estate professionals use DocuSign to execute agreements with buyers and sellers electronically, eliminating the antiquated process of printing, faxing and waiting for the return fax. As more than 95 percent of home buyers have Internet access, but less than 10 percent have fax service at their home, DocuSign saves agents time and money while providing client convenience. Real estate forms are signed in minutes, not days, from a PC, Mac or even a mobile phone. DocuSign real estate professional subscribers achieve higher sales, increase client satisfaction and maintain a competitive edge. Safe and secure, the DocuSign e-signature process is also easy to use and legally compliant.
ActiveRain is the world's largest social network and marketing platform for real estate professionals with over 175,000 members and more than two million unique visitors each month. ActiveRain helps agents create business relationships both within the industry and with the consumer. Visit www.activerain.com for more information.
