Alliance Staffing Solutions Accelerates Business with DocuSign Electronic Signature Service

DocuSign Helps Ohio-Based Staffing Firm Expedite a 100 Percent Increase in Placements and Drive 129 Percent Increase in Revenue 

SEATTLE – August 16, 2010 – DocuSign the market leader and global standard for electronic signature, today announced that Alliance Staffing Solutions, one of the fastest growing companies in Northeast Ohio, uses the DocuSign electronic signature service to complete its candidate application process. Alliance uses DocuSign to quickly and easily send candidates employment application packages to complete and electronically sign—thereby avoiding the hassle of printing, signing and faxing or mailing bulky, multi-page applications. The volume of Alliance candidate application packages has increased by 100 percent over the prior year. Alliance successfully processes candidates with only a modest increase in staff due to efficiency gains using DocuSign electronic signature service. Alliance has experienced a revenue increase for the first half of 2010 by 129 percent over 2009 after deploying DocuSign."As one of the largest staffing companies in our region, we process a large volume of applications and need the very latest technology to support and even accelerate our processes. In addition, with seven business units serving different industry sectors, we needed a more mature electronic signature solution that could accommodate the unique needs of each business unit. DocuSign was the perfect fit," says Kate Masin, director of operations at Alliance Staffing Solutions. "DocuSign is the global standard and we're delighted with the results we have received. We've seen 100 percent growth over prior year and a 129 percent increase in revenue for the first half of 2010. Much of this is attributed to the efficiencies we've gained using DocuSign. I'd recommend DocuSign to anyone wanting to enable technology to reduce costs, streamline operations and increase revenue—it worked for us!"

Since deploying DocuSign, Alliance has seen the submission of online applications grow from 425 to nearly 900 new candidate applications each month. Despite a 100 percent growth rate in applications over the previous year, Alliance has only modestly grown staff due in part to increased efficiencies and enhanced productivity using the DocuSign electronic signature service. DocuSign's easy to create templates, signing reminders, automatic conversion of Adobe® PDF form fields and other tools have streamlined Alliance workflows.
