DocuSign® and Safeco Insurance® Bring Digital Transaction Management to Safeco Agents in New Partnership
Seattle—September 15, 2014—DocuSign, Inc. (DocuSign®) and Safeco Insurance announced a new partnership to integrate DocuSign’s Digital Transaction Management (DTM) platform into Safeco’s Agent Portal to help agents keep business fully digital. DocuSign empowers agents to better compete for new business, close policies faster and serve customers better with more convenient and secure transactions.
Key benefits of DocuSign for Safeco agents include increased speed to revenue by facilitating faster application closing without delays from documents that are not in good order, improved document workflow by eliminating the hassles and costs of chasing paper for signature, reduced errors and omissions exposure and new convenience for clients who are now able to DocuSign paperwork anytime, anywhere on any device.
“Safeco’s independent agents understand how DocuSign improves the customer experience, helping to close new business faster and expediting insurance policy renewals, and we’re excited to partner with them on this new platform,” said David Kopetzky, associate vice president of online experience at Safeco Insurance.
“DocuSign is pleased to partner with Safeco to bring the global standard for Digital Transaction Management to Safeco’s independent agents to help them achieve the benefits of the digital transformation in their businesses,” said Neil Hudspith, Chief Revenue Officer at DocuSign. “Our new integration with Safeco empowers agents to do business with their clients anytime and anywhere for better return on investment, increased security and compliance and a great client experience.”
Today more than 400 insurance companies and the industry’s largest brokers turn to DocuSign to accelerate document workflows and capture signatures instead of printing, faxing, scanning and overnighting documents for signature – all of which can put revenue and reputation with clients at risk. DocuSign not only integrates with the systems and processes already in use by independent insurance agents, but it also delivers mobile solutions to support in-person transactions to position agents to serve their clients when and where convenient.
“DocuSign helps us get applications and change requests back to our agency quickly and has enabled us to easily go digital,” said Willie King, Safeco independent agent with First Community Insurance. “Thanks to DocuSign’s DTM platform our document signing workflow is streamlined—saving us time, eliminating postage expenses and delighting our customers with a paper-free experience. We look forward to taking advantage of DocuSign’s integration with Safeco’s Agent Portal for even greater efficiencies and digital document management.”
DocuSign is the official DTM and eSignature platform of the Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America (IIABA or The Big “I’) with more than 27,000 agency members. DocuSign is available nationwide to all Safeco agents. Insurance brokers and agents who sell Safeco Insurance can access the DocuSign solution at a discounted rate, also available for IIABA members, at www.docusign.com/iiaba/safeco.
