PALO ALTO, California (PRESS RELEASE – June 23, 2009) — EchoSign, the leading Web-based provider of electronic signatures and signature automation, with more than 800,000 users worldwide, today announced EchoSign Summer Release 2009. EchoSign’s new release brings unique value propositions to businesses — immediate ROI because revenue can be booked faster than with any other solution, and a personalized, efficient signing experience gets the deal closed in the cloud. Prompted both by economic conditions, innovations in IT such as cloud computing and software-as-a-service (SaaS), companies are evolving business models to support the online channel. As a SaaS solution, EchoSign is a natural fit for companies that want to experience more profitable business online.
Sign in the Cloud – However, Wherever
With EchoSign, getting a signature is as quick and easy as sending an email, whether the document is several pages long or the recipient is on a mobile device:
For the sender: interactive, drag and drop input fields let users build each contract to suit. When sending a document for signature, users can quickly and easily select input boxes such as “signature,” “initials,” and “date signed” and place them throughout a contract wherever acknowledgment is desired. This drag and drop capability is web based and works with all browsers. Existing Adobe Acrobat and other PDF forms are now – for the first time by any product — automatically converted to HTML forms on the fly — a significant cost and time saving advantage. Once the HTML forms are signed, EchoSign converts the executed agreement back to PDF format for archiving and storage. Senders can also quickly create and share document libraries for frequently used documents from many sources including Google Docs and Zoho Writer. Now, you can edit, share, approve, send and sign documents – all 100% in the cloud.
For the signer: The EchoSign Signing Wizard offers a step-by-step guide pointing out where a document needs to be initialed or signed, or isn’t signed correctly or completely. When required, users can also sign biometrically with a stylus or a mouse – or on an iPhone or Blackberry.
EchoSign is an ideal tool for all sized companies to accelerate their profitability by doing business in the cloud:
Not only does EchoSign deliver immediate ROI by getting customer contracts closed in minutes versus days, it also decreases post sales follow up by between 20 and 50 percent.
EchoSign is affordable, with a free version, an offering for $14.95/month for small companies, and more advanced versions for medium sized and enterprise companies. For more pricing information visit EchoSign’s Website at http://www.echosign.com/public/static/cost.jsp?rs=springpr&rc=springpr
