AssureSign LLC Launches New Version of AssureSign Electronic Signature Software

3 November 2008

Today, in conjunction with salesforce.com’s Dreamforce ’08 user and developer conference, AssureSign LLC, a leader in biometric electronic signature technology, officially unveiled the latest release of its AssureSign product, AssureSign v2.0.1. With this new release, AssureSign delivers a higher degree of automation and integration for users and administrators. Salesforce.com customers will be able to test drive and deploy AssureSign v 2.0.1 starting November 13 on the Force.com AppExchange.

AssureSign creates a digital representation of the act of signing using a unique encryption process that provides its customers with the utmost protection. The sequence, which is seamless and immediate, yields one of the most comprehensive service-based, electronic, hand-written signatures on the market today.

As with previous releases, the enhancements to the AssureSign product in v2.0.1 are critical to improving AssureSign’s ability to integrate with Salesforce CRM and the existing document management process already in place at many businesses. The previously released DocumentNOW™ family of Web service interfaces provided businesses with the critical ability to dynamically apply their data to template documents created in AssureSign. In AssureSign v2.0.1, new DocumentNOW™ interface methods enable users to pass a previously created document within the XML/Web Services API to AssureSign via the user’s preferred method; meaning users can choose to create PDF documents in external programs or merge data into a PDF using AssureSign’s integrated document streaming capabilities.

In addition, AssureSign’s Salesforce CRM integration has been enhanced in v2.0.1 to include the ability to send previously created documents for signature. AssureSign offers one-click document creation with Salesforce CRM data mapping and signatures for Salesforce CRM, as well as the ability to manage and report workflow progress. It will soon be available on the Force.com AppExchange, enabling Salesforce CRM users to realize shorter revenue cycles and a greatly accelerated sales process. With direct integration into Salesforce CRM, AssureSign can be up and running in minutes.

“The enhancements in AssureSign 2.0.1, particularly the document streaming capabilities, are significant to the usability of the product,” said David W. Brinkman, AssureSign’s Chief Executive Officer. “Users now have the capability to produce documents directly through AssureSign and Salesforce CRM, eliminating the need to purchase or learn additional software, broadening accessibility and saving customers time and money. And since AssureSign is a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) application, existing customers can immediately have this new functionality without having to upgrade any software on their system.”

AssureSign Electronic Signature Technology is a web-hosted, Software-as-a-Service application that facilitates the managed processing of documents in an all-digital, high-security environment. The patent-pending electronic signature software provides forensically identifiable evidence of contractual acceptance with digitized electronic signatures that can be matched for authentication in much the same way as a traditional signature.

And since the entire AssureSign electronic signature process is tracked digitally, users have a complete forensic audit trail of the delivery and signing process. Thus, they know exactly when documents are received, when they are signing and who has or has not signed them. This unique feature allows users to expedite the signing process with additional follow-up by phone or email as needed. In this way, AssureSign gives clients control over the entire signing process.

In addition to simplicity and trackability, AssureSign LLC guarantees full compliance with the requirements and standards of both the Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce (E-SIGN) Act and the Uniform Electronic Transactions Act (UETA) for all AssureSign Electronic Signature products. The E-SIGN Act facilitates the use of electronic records and signatures in interstate and foreign commerce by ensuring the validity and legal effect of contracts entered into electronically, and UETA provides a legal framework for electronic transactions and gives electronic signatures and records the same validity and enforceability as manual signatures and paper-based transactions.
