Adobe extends its leadership in digital documents by making the Adobe EchoSign electronic signature service readily available to the one billion business professionals who use Adobe Reader, Adobe Acrobat, Box, Google Drive, and Microsoft SharePoint 2013. The May release also introduces a streamlined user experience and industry-leading support for customized business workflows. Combined, these enhancements make it possible for more organizations to finish business faster and speed time to revenue. Today, Adobe EchoSign customers achieve an average of 85% reduction in contract signing times.
Since the December 2013 release, the Adobe EchoSign team has been focused on designing a superior e-signature experience that integrates seamlessly with business users’ preferred applications–and today’s release is the result. Now, Adobe EchoSign is instantly accessible within the most commonly used desktop and cloud-based document applications, making it easier than ever to integrate electronic signatures into business processes across Sales, HR, Legal, and Operations. Other key highlights of the May release include:
- A new, streamlined user experience. The Adobe EchoSign May release introduces a simplified interface that’s quick and easy to navigate –for senders and signers alike. Plus, the new design ensures a consistent experience across devices, browsers, and screen resolutions.
- Support for creating custom business workflows. Adobe EchoSign is the industry-leading e-signature platform that helps customers build and customize signing workflows uniquely tailored to suit individual business processes. Once built, these workflows can be published and used throughout the organization –helping improve compliance, minimize errors, and reduce costly rework during signing processes.
- Flexible identity verification. Using two-factor authentication, senders can rest assured that the people they want to sign documents are the ones who actually do. This is easily setup by choosing from several identity verification methods such as password, knowledge-based authentication, or social identity.
- Faster, easier administrative setup, user management, and permissions. Administrators can easily scale EchoSign within their organizations by creating, updating, and managing users in bulk, as well as controlling signing privileges within an account.
- Expanded APIs. Underscoring its commitment to a standard and open platform for electronic signatures, Adobe continues to make more of Adobe EchoSign’s functionality accessible through APIs. Adobe EchoSign supports a comprehensive set of SOAP and REST-based APIs allowing developers to use their favorite tools and programming models of choice to build integrations into Adobe EchoSign.
