DocuSign Launches Electronic Notary Capability in DocuSign Fall ’13 Release
DocuSign Fall ’13 Enables Notaries to Electronically Notarize Documents and Extends Authentication Options
SAN FRANCISCO –– September 16, 2013 – DocuSign, The Global Standard for eSignature®, announced the fall release of its market-leading eSignature transaction management platform featuring streamlined Electronic Notary functionality, SMS authentication, powerful reporting, mobile functionality and improved integrations. Leading companies are generating millions of dollars in ROI and measurably improving customer experiences by using DocuSign to Keep Business Digital™.
In this release DocuSign introduces Electronic Notary in the State of North Carolina, furthering the state’s progressive use of technology to empower citizens. DocuSign’s Electronic Notary feature lets senders require that documents be notarized, with authorized notaries and signers DocuSigning in person to complete transactions.
"The State of North Carolina and DocuSign already have a proven track record of working together through electronic signature collaboration,” Secretary of State Elaine F. Marshall said Monday. “Today, I am pleased to see them offer services to notaries public in North Carolina who are approved to do electronic notarizations. The advantages to doing your notarizations electronically are overwhelming, especially for businesses seeking new ways to save time and money.”
In addition, DocuSign is also extending its authentication options with SMS two-factor authentication – DocuSign texts an authorization code to a recipient’s mobile phone and the recipient enters the code to commence signing. This compliments existing DocuSign authentication options including email access code, phone, and knowledge-based (KBA) authentication.
Additional enhancements in the DocuSign Fall ’13 Release include:
Signer Experience Enhancements - Now signers can DocuSign faster. Pages, images, and dialogue boxes render faster to give signers an even better user experience.

DocuSign Mobile Apps - DocuSign’s latest iOS release includes offline sending and signing, as well as push notifications. The latest release for Android includes a new integration with Evernote which allows users to import documents directly from Evernote notebooks, get signatures, and then automatically save those documents back to Evernote.
DocuSign Connectors - DocuSign for NetSuite users can specify that completed documents automatically attach to the associated NetSuite record with a preferred naming format. DocuSign for Salesforce adds support for Quotes. In September, DocuSign adds deeper support for sending with DocuSign from more objects within Microsoft Dynamics, and provide more options for the DocuSign Certificate of Completion associated with each completed envelope.
Reporting - Using a new Reports tab in the DocuSign web application, customers can easily modify, run, export and print reports, choosing from a new library of standard reports with options for individual, group, and account level visibility.
