Construction Company to Go Green By Eliminating Paper Contracts Using the Number One eSignature Solution Provider

SEATTLEApr 26, 2011 – DocuSign® (, the world’s leading electronic signature network with more than six million customers, today announced that Lease Crutcher Lewis (Lewis) selected DocuSign’s eSignature network to streamline contract management and provide an increased ability to monitor end-to-end process while reducing paper waste. Lewis, a 125-year-old construction company based in the Pacific Northwest chose DocuSign as part of their ongoing initiative to increase business efficiency while implementing environmentally friendly policies and practices.

“DocuSign provides a powerful solution to streamline our contract management process,” said Molly Lallemand, accounting supervisor at Lease Crutcher Lewis. “DocuSign is the easiest, fastest and most secure way for us to get documents signed.”

“With the DocuSign electronic signature network, Lease Crutcher Lewis can further extend their industry leadership by getting contracts signed quickly and easily while reducing costs,” said Tom Gonser, founder and chief strategy officer at DocuSign. “Lewis can now provide customers with a convenient way to sign contracts anytime, anywhere, from any device.”

DocuSign’s electronic signature solution provides Lewis with increased visibility and control over their construction contracts, which can involve multiple signers across different organizations. Lewis is now able to easily view every step of that process online, in real time. Since DocuSign guides signers through the process, all contracts are signed correctly the first time and returned in good order saving time and resources.  Since many Lewis customers and suppliers are mobile, the ability to review, manage and sign contracts on mobile devices anywhere, anytime will increase productivity.

Lewis expects to see additional benefits after contracts are signed and construction is finished, as customers often hire third-party auditors to review the details and final costs of the completed projects. “We won’t have to search for paper copies in preparation for these meetings. We can find them stored securely in the cloud,” added Lallemand. “DocuSign will save us valuable time and money.”
