Adobe® EchoSign® Announces Partnership with ARIBA®
Condense your contract cycle to minutes (not weeks) all within your ARIBA Network.
On the brink of kicking off AribaLIVE 2014, we are extremely excited to announce that Adobe EchoSign and Ariba have partnered to bring users a fully integrated e‐signature capability within Ariba’s on‐ demand Contract Management solution. Through this timely and intuitive integration, EchoSign enables users to send, sign and track their contracts and deals with one‐click without having to leave the Ariba platform.
It makes sense. You already rely on Ariba, the world’s leading business commerce network, and the Ariba Contract Management system to execute contracts faster, cut costs, and maintain compliance. Now you can achieve even greater efficiencies by getting your contracts electronically signed right from within your Ariba environment. With Adobe EchoSign for Ariba Contract Management, it’s easy to collect legally binding e‐signatures—from anywhere, on almost any device—helping you shrink contract cycles, reduce costs, and speed time to revenue.
Founded on the principles of eliminating the wasted time and money involved in corporate purchasing, Ariba helped modernize the outdated, tedious, frustrating and often wasteful paper‐based procurement processes. Using Ariba, enterprises can now understand and get complete visibility into how they are spending money. Similarly, Adobe EchoSign’s mission is to streamline company workflows with paperless, digital document management and eliminate the waste associated with filing and storage costs as well as lost opportunities when an important document or deal gets lost in the shuffle. These two value propositions excellently dovetail with each other, leading our two companies to partner to deliver an integrated solution.
Now, buyers and sellers within the Ariba network can accelerate their quote‐to‐cash processes without ever leaving the Ariba Contract Management user interface. EchoSign is built into Ariba Contract Management, so it’s fast and easy to get started—no installation or configuration needed. Because EchoSign runs transparently inside your Ariba system, it requires little or no training to use. This integration reduces the timeline for payment completions from weeks to minutes, eliminates paper‐ based workflows, improves data quality and security, all while providing real‐time visibility into the status of your contracts. Contracts are digitally sealed to provide tamper evidence and automatically stored in the Ariba system.
Backed by Adobe’s rich, 30‐year legacy around digital document management innovations, EchoSign has proven to be the leading e‐signature solution with more than 3 million contracts successfully sent, e‐ signed, tracked and closed on a monthly basis.
