Keller Williams Realty International Selects DocuSign for Approved Vendor Program
DocuSign Debuts New Electronic Signature Service Offering to 73,000 Real Estate Professionals
SEATTLE – February 19, 2010 - DocuSign®, the leading provider of on-demand electronic signature solutions to the Real Estate industry, today announced that Keller Williams Realty International chose DocuSign as the e-signature technology standard for its 73,000 real estate professionals. Keller Williams, the third largest real estate franchise in the United States, appointed DocuSign as its newest member of the Keller Williams Approved Vendor Program, a select group of vendors. Acceptance into the Approved Vendor Program was based on the quality, reliability and security of the DocuSign electronic signature service.
To kick-off the partnership, DocuSign will be exhibiting at the Annual Keller Williams Family Reunion, booth #456, to be held February 20-24 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, LA.
"Real estate professionals are discovering the power of DocuSign's eSignature service to accelerate business and increase customer satisfaction in a highly competitive market. And, DocuSign anticipates the adoption rate to accelerate even faster as we continue to grow our key partnerships," said Dave Thorpe, business development director at DocuSign. "We are proud to be included as an Approved Vendor to Keller Williams' 73,000 agents and to launch this new relationship at the Family Reunion in New Orleans."
More than 20,000 real estate professionals have used DocuSign to accelerate their business, with thousands more subscribing each month. Rather than driving across town to get a signature or forcing clients to find a fax machine, real estate professionals use DocuSign to execute agreements with buyers and sellers electronically, eliminating the antiquated process of printing, faxing and waiting for the return fax. As more than 95 percent of home buyers have Internet access, but less than 10 percent have fax service at their home, DocuSign saves agents time and money while providing client convenience. Real estate forms are signed in minutes, not days, from a PC, Mac or even a mobile phone. DocuSign real estate professional subscribers achieve higher sales, increase client satisfaction and maintain a competitive edge. Safe and secure, the DocuSign e-signature process is also easy to use and legally compliant.
