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.

REVOLUTION After-hours party with Financial Force, Click Software and Totango

After an action-packed day three at Dreamforce the EchoSign team let loose at the REVOLUTION party. The party was sponsored by EchoSign, FinancialForce.com, Click Software and Totango and drew quite a crowd. The party kicked off at about 7:30 PM last night and carried on to the early hours of the morning with tons of networking, good drinks and unwind time. From the “EchoSign lime” themed drink to the ambiance-setting decorations, the party was a hit and our team was glad to be involved!

EchoSign demonstrates how easy it is to #signanywhere at the booth!

As users know, Adobe EchoSign makes getting business done from anywhere simple, friction-free and efficient. The EchoSign sales team was ecstatic to get the chance to demonstrate the ease and simplicity of use by signing a deal with new UK client, The Foundry Team, LIVE from the EchoSign booth.

As a forward-thinking company providing creative, smart software solutions, The Foundry Team was excited to get on-board with an e-signature solution to match their way of doing business, and we are thrilled to be the service they chose! Friction-free business is not an option for this innovative company and EchoSign’s ability to help create a seamless, easy and hassle-free process made us the right fit for their company.

Adobe EchoSign Summit Connects E-Signature Customers

While most organizations are making strides to eliminate paper from critical business processes, many still are reliant on paper-based agreements and contracts. At the Adobe EchoSign Summit, we brought e-signature thought leaders, customers, and legal experts together to discuss how organizations are leveraging web contracting to drive revenue, reduce costs, and reduce environmental impact.

Adobe EchoSign is committed to promoting web contracting and electronic signatures in a variety of industries.  The Summit took current and potential customers through exactly how e-signatures can reduce contract cycles, increase mobility of their workforce, and ultimately save cost.

Daniel Sieff said. “EchoSign turns an ordinary contract into a living, breathing document.” Sieff, Director of Information Technology at LivingSocial, explained how to champion a web contracting initiative in your own company.  The benefits can speak for themselves, but we all know that there are always those resistant to change.  Sieff brought us some best practices and demonstrations that demystified the process of eliminating paper contracts from your workflow.

This event wasn’t just for people brand new to the concept, though. Paul Hirner, Partner at ThinkSmart, showed the audience how to truly integrate the e-signing process into their current business processes.  He explained that ThinkSmart, an EchoSign services partner, can allow you to expand your business model to be much more personalized and optimized to meet your business goals.

Audience members also got to hear from companies like Citrix, Google, New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), and Viacom about how e-Signatures worked for them.  In this case study panel, customers across industries and job functions provided tips and tricks on best practices to implementing e-signatures in their respective organizations. This was a great opportunity for potential customers to ask the questions that matter most to them, and hear an honest response from peers.

“It was inspiring to watch current customers talk to future customers about their experiences with Adobe EchoSign.  My favorite quote: ‘no it wasn’t a hard sell to convince my sales team to adopt EchoSign – as a technology company it was just embarrassing that we were using paper contracts.”” Said Erin Curtis, Director of Marketing at Adobe EchoSign.

Adobe EchoSign Launches New Green Meter for Earth Day 2013!

Did you or your company do anything for Earth Day this year? Today more than one billion people around the world will take part in the 43rd anniversary of Earth Day, but sometimes we all get a little too busy to do something special.

That’s why Adobe EchoSign built the Green Meter.  The Green Meter lets you show the world how sustainable you’ve been all year by simply converting the number of paper documents you saved by using  e-signatures into stats about how much water, waste, and wood that would be.

Adobe Echo Sign Green Meter

Now, we’re not saying that Earth Day is a contest or anything, but let’s just say that if it were, this would be your secret weapon. You can share these stats on Facebook or Twitter, or just use them as talking points at your big meeting this week.

We appreciate you helping us make a real difference to our environment every day of the year – not just on Earth Day. So go ahead and brag about it. You deserve it!

And if you really want to get your company’s name out there for being one of the most environmentally conscious companies in your industry, then post your stats to Earth Day’s Facebook Page, or use Twitter’s climate change hashtag #faceofclimate to socialize your sustainability efforts.

Using EchoSign to eliminate the printing of documents not only keeps with green practices, it also saves your organization money – what’s good for the planet is good for business. What other sustainability practices do you do to save paper and water and eliminate waste?
