DocuSign and FBS Announce New Time-Saving Functionality for Real Estate Professionals

DocuSign Extends Integration within flexmls Forms to 90,000 Real Estate Professionals

Seattle - July 20, 2010 – DocuSign®, the market leader and global standard for electronic signature, today announced advanced functionality of the DocuSign electronic signature service within flexmls® Forms. DocuSign and FBS, creators of the flexmls® family of Web applications which is used by more than 90,000 real estate professionals, have extended the integration of DocuSign to provide pre-tagged flexmls Forms. This advanced functionality provides flexmls Forms users heightened convenience with DocuSign pre-tagged flexmls forms to accelerate the real estate document signing process and ensure deals close faster.

In the competitive real estate market, minutes can literally make the difference when closing a deal. Through the flexmls Forms Web solution, real estate professionals can more quickly prepare documents for client electronic signature. With a simple click of the mouse, real estate professionals can select pre-tagged forms within the flexmls Web application, then electronically "send" to clients using DocuSign. The client receives an email notification, is authenticated and quickly navigated through the e-signing process. By extending the integration of DocuSign within flexmls, real estate agents can further simplify the real estate contract signing process, save hours of time each week, eliminate signing errors and accelerate deal close rates. 

"Our goal at FBS is to help agents complete more transactions and this new time-saving functionality from DocuSign to our Forms system will help in realizing that goal," said Michael Wurzer, president and CEO of FBS. "As the standard in the real estate market, DocuSign improves the speed, accuracy and efficiency of getting contracts signed, and with pre-tagged flxmls Forms, these benefits are further magnified."

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 old process of printing, faxing and waiting for the return fax. With real estate forms signed in minutes, not days, DocuSign real estate professional subscribers achieve higher sales, increase client satisfaction and maintain a competitive edge. Safe and secure, the DocuSign electronic signature process is also easy to use and legally compliant.

"The relationship between the flexmls Web applications and DocuSign is a natural as both services provide real estate professionals with state of the art technology to complete real estate transactions faster and easier," said Dave Thorpe, business development director at DocuSign. "FBS has made it possible for its customers to leverage the power of the DocuSign electronic signature platform directly from their flexmls user interface and receive ongoing support from FBS for maximum convenience."
