SEATTLE – August 23, 2010 – DocuSign®, the market leader and global standard for electronic signature, today announced that DocuSign and Points North, an innovative data integration solutions provider, have partnered to integrate the DocuSign electronic signature service within the Points North Certified Payroll Reporting product. Certified Payroll Reporting streamlines the reporting process and enhances regulatory compliance for hundreds of contractors who are required to report prevailing wages under the Davis-Bacon Act. Now with the integration of DocuSign, users can quickly generate and electronically sign certified payroll reports. Since the Points North product launched in early June 2010, more than 500 reports have been electronically signed and filed to government authorities."DocuSign is the market leader and standard for electronic signature, so integration with the Points North Certified Payroll Reporting solution was a natural fit," said Amanda Allard-Korell, marketing manager at Points North. "DocuSign further enhances our solution by providing the capability to electronically sign weekly certified payroll reports. Users can quickly generate, sign and submit their reports with the peace of mind that all electronically signed reports are compliant."
Contractors performing work on government subsidized projects are required to submit accurate and timely prevailing wage reports. This complex task can take hours when tracking multiple projects and employees. The Points North Certified Payroll Reporting solution streamlines this process by using imported payroll data from leading payroll providers to generate reports. Automating the signing process with DocuSign completes the reporting process and enhances compliance by providing a legally binding document. By extending the power of DocuSign within the Points North Certified Payroll Reporting solution, contractors can further streamline their reporting process, reducing their reporting efforts by up to 75 percent.
"DocuSign and Points North partnered to provide a state of the art solution to better manage federally mandated Davis-Bacon reporting," said Matt Schiltz, vice president of business development at DocuSign. "Points North users can now leverage the power of DocuSign electronic signature services directly with the Points North reporting solution for a rich, complete and convenient end-to-end electronic signature management process. This partnership with Points North is another example of DocuSign's leadership as the standard in electronic signature services and demonstrates Points North innovation in delivering world class solutions."
