Salesforce Users Standardize on DocuSign eSignature To ‘Close It In The Cloud’

DocuSign Electronic Signature Solution Helps Salesforce Users Close More Deals Faster To Earn Revenue Sooner, Reduce Costs, and Enhance Customer Experience

SAN FRANCISCONovember 29, 2011DocuSign, the global standard for electronic signature, today announced that Salesforce users – including those at Drawloop, Expedia, Extra Space Storage, LinkedIn, and Yamaha – have standardized on the DocuSign for Salesforce eSignature solution to "Close it in the Cloud™.” DocuSign is helping these and many other leading companies to close more deals faster to accelerate speed to revenue, reduce costs, and enhance the customer experience with DocuSign’s tightly integrated electronic signature solution for Salesforce.

“Salesforce.com is the pioneer and leader in cloud computing and the social enterprise,” said Keith Krach, CEO of DocuSign. “With DocuSign for Salesforce, we’ve created a powerful solution that helps sales teams close it in the cloud with a single click in Salesforce.”

DocuSign for Salesforce is built on the Force.com platform and works with any custom object. Salesforce users who leverage DocuSign as their eSignature provider can add custom buttons, features, and functionality to any Salesforce app to make it faster and easier to “Close it in the Cloud.” This includes creating buttons for “One Click Sending” for eSignature from any custom object.

“Prior to DocuSign we were doing a lot of scanning of contracts and manual data entry back into Salesforce,” said Jim Roberson, co-founder and president of Drawloop. “We would lose data in that process, and it also created a lot of extra manual steps. That’s all been eliminated with DocuSign. DocuSign allows us to go from weeks down to literally hours to get a contract executed.”

DocuSign for Salesforce makes it easy and fast for sales professionals to send contracts for signature straight from Salesforce. DocuSign’s eSignature solution helps sales teams:

  • Close deals faster – Contracts can be sent for signature with a single click in Salesforce, reducing the time to close a deal from days to minutes.
  • Increase productivity – DocuSign merge fields embed the power of Salesforce into documents – pulling data direct from Salesforce and updating customer-inputted data back into Salesforce.
  • Stay connected with Chatter – DocuSign documents Chatter automatically so sales teams know when a contract is sent, viewed, forwarded, and signed – providing greater visibility and control.

"DocuSign takes an inefficient process and automates and simplifies it for all parties involved,” said Michael Machado, CRM Manager at Yamaha. “DocuSign automates the old, manual chore of contract management."

“It’s easy and fast to sign up new customers with DocuSign’s electronic signature solution,” said Teardra Pederson, CRM Business Analyst at Extra Space Storage. “DocuSign improves efficiency across our facilities. We plan to expand our use of DocuSign to other types of documents, such as vendor compliance change-of-address forms and cut-lock authorizations, for even more value across the business.”

Drawloop Technologies – Jim Roberson, President & Co-Founder

“DocuSign allows us to go from a couple of days or even a week, down to literally hours to get a contract executed.”

“DocuSign is substantially unique from other options because most of the time if you’re missing data you need to pick up the phone, call them, email them and try to get all of that data before you can send it out for signing. With DocuSign, this hassle is totally eliminated.”

“What’s been nice is being able to generate the contract from within Salesforce using our Dynamic Document Packaging service, send it through the DocuSign e-signature process and get it all back in one location in Salesforce. That’s been one of the single greatest benefits for Drawloop, because prior to DocuSign we were doing a lot of scanning of contracts and manual data entry back into Salesforce. We would lose data in that process and it also created a lot of extra manual steps. That’s all been eliminated with DocuSign.”
