The Process Behind Health Practice Perfection

CareCloud helps medical practices improve their workflows with innovative cloud-based digital apps. To improve its internal sales workflows, CareCloud turned to Adobe EchoSign and Salesforce.

Mobile-enabled contract management helps the company’s sales force process an average of 270 agreements each month with automated routing and e-Signatures. By integrating EchoSign with Salesforce and Conga, CareCloud can easily take advantage of features such as logic rules – which prevent errors that delay customers’ contracts – and customizable workflows, further simplifying the online signature and contracting process.

“We looked at competing products, but none balanced the usability and functionality of Adobe EchoSign. The simplified UI is incredibly easy to use, needing minimal training for staff to start sending contracts, says Juan Molina, director of business development at CareCloud.

Adobe EchoSign Takes Part in Keynote Panel for Apttus Accelerate 2013

This week Apttus hosted Accelerate 2013 in San Francisco. This aptly named Summit provided attendees with an array of dynamic events and sessions that took a deep dive into solutions that help accelerate the Quote to Cash cycle and further explore the role of new business technologies and processes. Attended by key decision makers in verticals from sales to legal operations, the Summit brought together notable industry leaders and specialists that provided unique insights and solutions to dramatically impact the bottom line. Speakers included some of the top names in the industry with high level executives from companies like Salesforce.com, Accenture and NASA, including Olympic Gold Medalist Johnny Moseley and Apttus Chairman and CEO Kirk Krappe.

 

On Monday, September 9, the keynote session was entitled A Brave New World — Creating the Future Together and was comprised of panel members that represented companies who have successfully helped other large and small enterprises move their business to SaaS based applications in the Cloud. These “Best of Breed” solution providers and featured panelists included Adobe EchoSign’s own Vice President, Jon Perera, accompanied by William Band, Analyst with Forrester, Scott Broomfield, CMO of Xactly, and Kamal Ahluwalia, CMO of Apttus, who moderated the panel.  As ‘ecosystem innovators and contributors’ to the Quote to Cash cycle (per Ahluwalia), each panelist was invited to share best practices for streamlining business to be more nimble and adept at adapting to industry change. Jon Perera noted that to do this is to first identify where the friction is within a business and work towards getting to a single version of the truth.

 

As the world continues to move to the Cloud, one of the implications of this transition is that organizations don’t have the same level of control that they once had. Since companies such as Adobe EchoSign and Xactly work with sensitive data and documents, they discussed the importance of privacy and security today, how to approach the subject with a challenging CIO as well as highlighted examples of customers who effectively manage and protect sensitive information.

 

A key point made by the panel was the fact that the Cloud can yield so many benefits that do impact the bottom line of business. For example, by using Adobe EchoSign with Apttus and the other tools referenced, businesses have been able to condense the signing process down from 32 days to two days, end-to-end to get agreements signed. This fact hit home with the audience as it was quickly shared and retweeted across social media and sparked new conversations at #ApttusAccelerate well into the evening.

 

“Apttus and Adobe are partnering to help enterprise companies increase revenues and improve deal velocity, so it was a pleasure to be part of the panel,” said Jon Perera, Vice President of Adobe EchoSign. “Today, too many companies are still printing and faxing contracts for signature. I encouraged the attendees to find the friction within their businesses processes, and to consider cloud solutions and electronic signatures to address those pain points.”

 

Stay tuned for the official video presentation of this panel discussion. It will be uploaded soon.

Everybody Wants Streamlined E-Signatures at Foursquare

foursquare-logo (2)The Talent team at Foursquare has eliminated their manual, paper-based processes related to human resource management with streamlined, electronic signature workflows. Now, the rest of the social networking company is pushing to use the same tools.

Procedures such as employee onboarding have been greatly simplified with online document signing from Adobe EchoSign. Instead of printing, scanning, and transporting dozens of pages of print forms and documents, the company uses electronic documents. And by linking common fields, such as date of birth and Social Security number, new hires only need to fill out information once.

“With Adobe EchoSign, we’re leveraging templates to send paperwork in just a few clicks. The workflow is easy enough for all employees to pick up immediately, while still giving me the functionality to build out advanced use cases and scale to our needs,” says Talent operations manager, Matt Maimoni.

TiVo Sees Faster Authorization and Increased Visibility

TiVo_logo_2011_RGB_300dpi (2)It just got a lot easier to become an authorized TiVo retailer, thanks to Adobe EchoSign. Implementing a seamless electronic signature workflow has helped the home entertainment pioneer cut approval time from three weeks to only 72 hours.

“Leveraging the automation in Adobe EchoSign, we were able to remove days from our contract cycle time while increasing our control and visibility into the workflow and establishing clear audit trails for our internal records,” says Larry Denny, vice-president and associate general counsel at TiVo.

TiVo originally acquired Adobe EchoSign for legal contracts, but the company is using it to streamline internal and external operations throughout the company. For example, TiVo uses mobile capabilities in Adobe EchoSign to manage non-disclosure agreements. Visitors simply e-sign a tablet form when they check in at the office lobby, and the signed NDA is transmitted automatically to the legal department’s contract database.

Integrating Electronic Signatures with your Website or Software

Now, by adding electronic signatures to your own company’s website or software, you can streamline and better manage digital documents — both coming in to your workflow and being sent out from it. Adobe EchoSign allows you to integrate electronic signature capability to your existing website, blog, or software with ease. The integrated solution looks and functions as part of your own website while still providing the level of trust and confidence provided by Adobe EchoSign.

For Your Website

Adobe EchoSign features the easiest signing experience in the industry and the ability to instantly send, e-sign, track, and file documents securely online. If you run your own website or blog, all you need is the EchoSign widget. It allows you to post a document or PDF form for e-signature to any page on your website with just a single line of HTML. For example, you could create a form on your website that all your partners or vendors must fill out as part of your new partner or vendor onboarding process.

Once you have an EchoSign account, all you have to do is click “Create Widget” on your Home tab and upload a document or PDF form. Then we’ll work our magic and give you the HTML code you need to drop into your website automatically. It’s as simple as that.

Once the page is set up you can point people there, and we’ll do the rest. Moments after someone e-signs your document, you (and your signers) will be e-mailed a PDF copy – and a copy will automatically be placed in your EchoSign account.  EchoSign creates an easy to follow audit trail and file management system to make the process completely seamless in a fraction of the time.

For Applications

If you want to get more advanced and actually integrate EchoSign into your own web app, you can do that too. All you need is the EchoSign API.

Adobe EchoSign has prebuilt integration with CRM platforms such as Salesforce.com, Microsoft Dynamics CRM and document management systems such as Box and SharePoint – these integrations are built on the same set of API that we make available to you and your developers. For example if you wanted to incorporate electronic signatures into your financial database or with an open source CRM platform, EchoSign would provide you with a complete professional solution.

The Adobe EchoSign e-Signature Platform utilizes Web Services API for communication with external systems. Web Services is a standard, secure and scalable method of establishing communications between web-based services.

The Adobe EchoSign API requires every developer to have a unique API key allowing them to integrate their solution to EchoSign while applying EchoSign’s permission model to the data they can create or access.

If you want to get started with using our API, sign up for a free Developer Edition today.

Tulare County Sheriff’s Department Eliminates Paper Contracts with Adobe EchoSign

PatchWstateSeal2The Tulare County Sheriff’s Department in California’s Central Valley helps ensure public safety with 1,300 employees in 21 offices in an area roughly twice the size of Delaware. Half of the county is public land, including the Sequoia and KingsCanyon national parks and the Sequoia and Inyo national forests. The other half is the nation’s second-largest producer of agricultural commodities.

Old methods of signing documents and exchanging information—scanning, faxing, and emailing—were slow and unreliable. In fact, the department even relied on volunteer couriers to take hard copies from office to office. Such methods inhibited accurately tracking the status of documents such as personnel forms, policy authorizations, and purchase requisitions.

Adobe EchoSign gave us an efficient, accelerated workflow that helped us process more than 5,000 contracts in just over one year of use,” says the public information officer, Sergeant Chris Douglass. “We don’t deal with paper forms anymore. A requisitions request needs three signatures and a final copy delivered to the business office. With Adobe EchoSign, the forms can be completed by all signatories and the business office can receive a signed and secure PDF copy all in less than a minute.”

Using e-signatures to eliminate the need to handle physical forms has enabled Tulare County to boost efficiencies while cutting costs. Find out more about how Tulare uses EchoSign for contract management here.

Kforce Reduces Time to Signature with Adobe EchoSign

kforce logo (2)Professional staffing frequently requires extensive documentation to verify and certify qualifications and licensures. In the fields of technology, health care, finance, and accounting, Kforce is a recognized leader in providing high-quality consultants and direct hire personnel.

However, complying with client and regulatory requirements is often extensive and time-consuming. Kforce vendor services supervisor Ryan Coyle says highly skilled positions can require more than 20 separate documents, including profile forms and standard contracts.

“Vendor documents are typically signed by two or three stakeholders,” he says. “In the past, documents would be filled out by hand and scanned or faxed multiple times—a process that took several days and often resulted in an illegible copy.”

Kforce created simple workflows using Adobe EchoSign, for emailing documents among stakeholders. They can access forms and add e-signatures online from any browser on any device. When completed, a clear, archive-ready electronic copy is automatically sent to stakeholders, which reduces errors and creates a more reliable archive of records.

It also saves time. Coyle says his team has dramatically reduced turnaround time for document signing and processing—from two business days to less than two hours.
