DocuSign Electronic Signature Service Recognized as Mortgage Technology Top 50 Service Provider

DocuSign Electronic Signature Service is a Mainstay in Mortgage Industry

SEATTLE – August 11, 2010 – DocuSign the market leader and global standard for electronic signature, today announced that it was named a Top 50 Service Provider by Mortgage Technology magazine. DocuSign's inclusion as a Mortgage Technology Top 50 Service Provider was based on four major criteria—customer satisfaction, functionality, market share and viable revenue model. It is crucial that the providers on the list have satisfied users and show the ability to hold them by keeping those customers apace of the technology deployed by competing lenders.

According to Mortgage Technology this year's Top 50 Service Providers are mainstays with extensive mortgage experience. Although, every year new companies make their way into the mortgage space, lenders continue to look for companies with longevity in mortgage. In addition, industry consolidation is pushing some newcomers out of the market; therefore, the publication believes it is a good time for an established technology vendor with a proven track record, solid financials and a steady client base.

DocuSign continues to demonstrate leadership and market dominance in the electronic signature market, serving more than 30,000 customers and executing nearly 100 million signature events. As an example of DocuSign's leadership, earlier this year DocuSign spearheaded an initiative for the FHA to clarify its position on electronic third-party signatures. On April 8, 2010, the FHA issued a mortgagee letter clarifying its policy, which is considered the first in what is expected to be a series of responses to this DocuSign initiative.

In June, DocuSign hosted the first 2010 ESIGN Summit in San Francisco with a live keynote address from President Bill Clinton (via satellite). Gary Thomas, first vice president-elect of the National Association of REALTORS® presented, discussing how DocuSign enables REALTORS® and their clients to transact business from any place anytime. Other Industry visionaries and clients from mortgage and real estate sectors to technology and wealth management discussed the boundless opportunities to transact business more efficiently and environmentally friendly with DocuSign. To kick-off the Summit, DocuSign announced that it led a coalition in designating June 30 as National ESIGN Day to commemorate the 10-year anniversary of the signing of the Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act (ESIGN).
