PATH Clears the Way to Better Global Health with DocuSign Electronic Signature Service
International Non-Profit Streamlines Processes, Maximizes Agility and Accelerates Contracting Process in More than 70 Countries Worldwide with DocuSign
SEATTLE – October 25, 2010 – DocuSign® (www.docusign.com), the global leader in electronic signature, today announced that PATH, an international nonprofit organization, uses the DocuSign electronic signature service. PATH operates 29 offices worldwide with more than 1,000 professionals, responding to a spectrum of health needs in more than 70 countries. PATH trusts the DocuSign electronic signature service to quickly and completely transact agreements anywhere, anytime from around the globe. PATH is currently deploying DocuSign throughout its United States offices with plans for global deployment to follow.
"PATH's mission is to improve the health of people around the world by advancing technologies, strengthening systems and encouraging healthy behaviors. Using DocuSign aligns with this mission—it just makes sense," said Erik Arnold, chief information officer at PATH. "Our contracting officers manage hard to route documents in remote areas of the world. DocuSign is reliable, efficient and available anytime, anywhere, even from a mobile device. Now, contract turnaround is measured in hours, not days or weeks. The DocuSign electronic signature platform is an important component of PATH's globalization strategy."
PATH is eliminating the logistical nightmare of faxing, printing and mailing contracts globally. By incorporating DocuSign into PATH's signing workflow, contracting officers can prepare and "send" contracts anytime from anywhere. Recipients receive an email with a link, are authenticated and quickly navigated through the electronic signing process. Contracts are completed in hours regardless of location or time zone. Plus, DocuSign offers the convenience of signing using any Apple® iPhone® or iPad™, RIM® BlackBerry® or any other mobile device. DocuSign provides PATH with a fast and trusted method to complete contracts, thereby significantly reducing the time, environmental impact and cost of traditional paper-based processing.
Because of DocuSign's scalability and flexibility, Arnold foresees integrating DocuSign throughout the PATH organization. He envisions using DocuSign within the PATH legal team, human resources, procurement and more. Deployment in the United States is the first phase before extending the electronic signature platform globally.
Docupace users can now join more than 30,000 professionals eliminating paper and expediting transactions with DocuSign. Rather than driving across town to get a signature or forcing clients to find a fax machine, financial advisors use DocuSign to execute agreements electronically. With financial documents signed in minutes, not days, financial advisors that use DocuSign achieve higher sales, increase client satisfaction and maintain a competitive edge. Safe and secure, the DocuSign electronic signature process is easy to use, safe and legally compliant.
"We are pleased PATH trusts DocuSign's electronic signature service to help forward its humanitarian efforts worldwide," said Steve King, president and CEO of DocuSign. "DocuSign welcomes PATH and we look forward to supporting their internal and external goals to provide sustainable, culturally relevant solutions."
