DocuSign Electronic Signature Service Now Available to 4 Million Box Users
Box Extends Workflow from Collaboration to Deal Closure with DocuSign
SEATTLE – November 2, 2010— DocuSign® (www.docusign.com), the global leader in electronic signature, today announced that the DocuSign electronic signature service is now available as a built-in feature within Box.net's cloud content management system. Integration of the DocuSign service into the Box platform makes it easy for Box's four million users to collect signatures and close transactions from the same platform they use to manage and collaborate on content. The Box solution is also available through the DocuSign Marketplace.
With the integration of DocuSign, Box users can now "send" three DocuSign envelopes per month directly from the Box platform at no charge. Users may send envelopes to any number of recipients, in any sequence, and benefit from real-time updates on the status of the signing process directly within Box. Users and businesses that have greater transaction needs can purchase any standard DocuSign service plan, and existing DocuSign users can also connect their DocuSign account to Box to take advantage of the integration.
"Organizations ranging from small businesses to large enterprises are increasingly adopting cloud-based services to more efficiently manage information and empower internal and external collaboration," said Karen Appleton, vice president of business development at Box. "By integrating Box's cloud content management platform with DocuSign, we're making it easy for users to create and collaborate around content on Box, and then painlessly close deals with DocuSign's electronic signature service."
With Box's workflow and collaboration tools, users can revise, comment and assign tasks for relevant files. Once the content is finalized, Box users can easily close transactions with the DocuSign electronic signature services, available immediately as an OpenBox action. By clicking "Send with DocuSign" from the file options drop down menu, new and existing DocuSign users are guided through the document tagging process. Users can quickly prepare the document with DocuSign's drag and drop Stick-eTabs® or automatically apply all the tabs and workflow at once using DocuSign Templates to streamline the sending process.
"DocuSign is excited to provide this valuable benefit to Box users so they can close the loop from document collaboration to close," said Tom Gonser, founder and chief strategy officer at DocuSign. "The integration of DocuSign and Box offers the most powerful and flexible way to collaborate and close business faster and easier than any other process. The millions of users that are collaborating in the cloud today with Box can now get the deal closed with just a few mouse clicks with DocuSign."
