DocuSign announced the availability of DocuSign for Salesforce CRM on the AppExchange. DocuSign is the fastest way to Close it in the Cloud using Salesforce CRM. DocuSign allows users to send documents for electronic signature and track progress in real-time within Salesforce CRM and sync valuable form data with Salesforce CRM objects. Built using the Force.com platform, DocuSign for Salesforce CRM is immediately available for test drive and deployment on the AppExchange.

DocuSign is the seamless eSignature solution allowing Salesforce CRM users to quickly manage and send contracts for e-signing from a single workspace. Contracts can be conveniently signed in the cloud and returned within minutes. The contract signing process is even easier and faster than before with DocuSign Designed for Mobile, which enables customers to sign from any RIM BlackBerry, Apple iPhone, Google Android, Windows Mobile or other mobile device at anytime and from anywhere.

“DocuSign has transformed our business by automating our sales agreement processes and slashing the cost, time and error rates from our previous paper-based process,” said Michael Machado, Yamaha CRM manager. “Our dealers appreciate the time savings of signing in the cloud and the visibility into the status of every contract at any given moment. From an operational perspective, DocuSign has supercharged our productivity by eliminating a myriad of costly manual processes.”

The DocuSign Dashboard inside Salesforce CRM offers users real-time visibility and process control into sales and contract work streams. Pre-packaged and extensible reports are available to help managers gain valuable insight into measuring sales team success with metrics. Customers can access multi-layered authentication, transaction control, data collection and processing, workflows and templates and user management and reporting. DocuSign also eliminates the time and inefficiencies of manually re-keying information as client data is automatically updated in Salesforce CRM. DocuSign documents are electronically archived and retrieved with just a few clicks - making DocuSign one of the fastest ways to get a deal signed.

“Managing a contract from the genesis to signed stage from a single location within Salesforce CRM allows our team to focus on the important areas of the deal,” said Jim Roberson, co-founder and president of Drawloop Technologies. “DocuSign dramatically simplified the document signing process. We can now sign and execute contracts in hours instead of weeks.”

“Salesforce.com customers actively look for opportunities to broaden the tools they provide to salespeople to accelerate the closing process,” said Kendall Collins, chief marketing officer at salesforce.com. “With salesforce.com and partners like DocuSign on the AppExchange, companies have enterprise-ready options to empower employees to realize customer success and close contracts in the cloud.”
