The Global Fund: Saving Lives by Saving Time

Minutes can mean the difference between life and death in the fight against global epidemics like AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria. That’s why the Global Fund, a not-for-profit that mobilizes nearly $4 billion annually to fight the diseases, is speeding up delivery of life-saving medicine and assistance with help from Adobe Sign, an Adobe Document Cloud solution.

The organization used to collect signatures by manually circulating hard copies of documents in large binders called “black books.” When staff members were traveling—and up to 40% of the workforce typically is on the road at any given time—delays were more likely.

“We chose Adobe Sign because it definitely was the strongest solution in the market for our environment,” says Andrew Tatam, IT Business Partner Management at The Global Fund. “We also were buying into a company we weren’t just buying a solution.

The Global Fund can send PDF forms to any Internet-enabled device to support the organization’s increasingly mobile workforce. Concurrent signature workflows in Adobe Sign help the Global Fund distribute money faster by enabling up to 40 people to approve budgets, plans, and forecasts, and review and sign documents simultaneously.

The Global Fund is also driving internal efficiency with Adobe Sign. The organization’s HR department now completes recruitment evaluations in less than a day, so crucial operations can be staffed 80% faster than before. Templates and automated processes also help procurement obtain resources and fund programs more efficiently. Integration with Salesforce CRM lets the Global Fund draft grant documents with fewer errors so they can get funds to people and programs faster than before.
