E-signatures: Removing the last bottleneck to productive digital transactions

 

ES blog_GeoffreyMoore[1]

In the modern business world, digital transactions are transforming every activity with the mass adoption of mobile devices, wireless capabilities and cloud computing. Electronic signatures, or e-signatures, are no different. has 34 million customers electronic business processes, increasing productivity and efficiency of the modern workforce.

Geoffrey Moore, renowned author (Crossing the Chasm), speaker, and business advisor, has released a new whitepaper focused on e-signatures and their adoption into the business process. The whitepaper explores how as a new, technology-savvy generation enters the workforce, companies must make the transition from traditional systems of records to a modernized type of IT – one that’s focused on systems of engagement.

Traditionally, IT has been focused around databases, where interests of the employee are subordinate to the dictates of the database. This type of system creates bottlenecks, which systems of engagement are designed to remove with a user-centric orientation.

E-signatures represent an aspect of the new era of IT, created to accelerate workflow and speed up the mission-critical process of obtaining signatures. The act of signing has been changed by our increasingly digital world, just as the processes of printing, scanning, faxing and mailing are no longer user-friendly, eco-friendly or bottom line business-friendly. Manual signatures delay business processes, increase administrative costs and add no value to the workflow. So why do companies still use them?

Making the transition to digital signatures and increasing your company’s system of engagement should be simple and easy for your organization.

Our VP of EchoSign, Jon Perera, interviewed Moore to ask him about the technology adoption life cycle and how businesses can successfully usher in the new era of IT. Watch the video here.

Friction-Free Business Panel 

Wednesday morning kicked off with an early panel session lead by Adobe EchoSign VP Jon Perera. Jon, along with a team of industry influencer panelists, discussed how EchoSign has helped them to close deals and conduct friction-free business across several different company departments. From legal teams, to HR departments to a company’s sales team the benefits of EchoSign are obvious for the panelists who represented Groupon, Conway, Inc., Electronic Arts and others.

According to panelists, the three key areas in digital document management are ease of use, security and platform. “EchoSign actualizes Bill Gates’ dream of business at the speed of thought,” quipped panelist Marvin Clark, who went on to say his business saved about 4 million sheets of paper in the first year of use. Now that’s what we call going green!

Other panelists commented on how EchoSign was a driving force for empowering their sales teams with the ability to better track and follow up on contracts they send out. The digitalization of the HR and legal process was also a key benefit of EchoSign to many panelists’ companies, panelist Yuka Tzavaras said it has helped give her company a competitive edge when recruiting new employees as it helps to establish a company’s reputation as a leader in the industry.

Noted Author and Speaker Geoffrey Moore Discusses the Future of Enterprise IT

We were lucky enough to sponsor a discussion session lead by Geoffrey Moore, author of several high-tech, dynamic industry leading books such as Crossing the Chasm and highly-anticipated Escape Velocity due out at the start of 2014. During the session, he shared his take on businesses moving from digital consumption to digital engagement and how a competitive edge can be retained.

Moore pointed out that the focus of the 20th century was reducing cost, however the focus of the 21st century will be to reduce time. He dubbed this the era of “Systems of Engagement” as opposed to “Systems of Record” saying that the new must-haves for system design are: mobile first, no more stupid stuff, fully compliant and completely secure and full integration with the past systems of record. Electronic signatures perfectly fit into these new rules of digital engagement. Since people are rarely ever in the office e-signatures helps to satisfy the rule of ‘user first, mobile first.’ In addition, Moore points out that “signing on paper exemplifies ‘stupid stuff.” Finally, with the added security, legality and extensive tracking and filing features of EchoSign, the e-signature tool perfectly fits into the new rules of digital engagement.
