SAN FRANCISCO – November 27, 2012—DocuSign, the Global Standard for eSignature®, announced today that the State of North Carolina has standardized on the DocuSign eSignature transaction management platform to expedite and streamline processing of all government documents requiring signatures. The State of North Carolina will first deploy DocuSign’s eSignature solution in the Controller’s office to simplify travel reimbursement approvals and background check approvals, to create a better experience for citizens, employees, and vendors.
“Citizens will find it easier to do business with the State because they will be able to sign forms and documents anytime, anywhere and from any web-accessible device,” said David McCoy, state controller of North Carolina. “State agencies, universities, community colleges and local governments also will benefit from this 21st century tool that will help them move to digital processes and away from the labor-intensive and time-consuming processes that require a wet ink signature to each document and form.”
“All of us at DocuSign are honored to have been selected by North Carolina as the state’s official and exclusive eSignature provider,” said Keith Krach, chairman and CEO of DocuSign. “The citizens of North Carolina will find that DocuSign empowers them to sign anything, anywhere, anytime to make doing business with the state easier, faster and more convenient than ever.”
Government citizens, employees, and vendors can rest assured that all DocuSigned documents are legally binding by meeting the requirements of the U.S. ESIGN and UETA Acts of Congress. They can also enjoy peace of mind knowing that DocuSign’s eSignature transaction management platform is safe and secure, as the company and its products have achieved ISO/IEC 27001 certification which assures that DocuSign adheres to the most rigorous security standards in the U.S. and around the world.
DocuSign’s electronic signature solution ensures that federal, state, and local government offices are able to securely collect information, signatures, and payments for all types of electronic transactions, including search warrants, health department plan reviews, new student signups, vendor contracts, and legal guardian paperwork, among many others.
