ColumbiaSoft streamlines contract document management with new DocuSign Connector for electronic signatures

Print Version

ColumbiaSoft offers a new, completely paperless approach to managing contracts and gathering signatures with Document Locator and DocuSign.

Portland, Ore. – April 21, 2016 - ColumbiaSoft, a leading document management software company, has integrated with DocuSign, Inc. (DocuSign®), the leader in Digital Transaction Management (DTM) and eSignature, to provide a closed-loop system for creating, reviewing and digitally signing contracts and other documents. Using the new Document Locator® DocuSign Connector, documents can be routed to customers and vendors outside the system for immediate electronic signature.

“Business contracts, sales agreements, leases, legal files – virtually any document signing – can be handled faster and more efficiently with the global standard for Digital Transaction Management DocuSign,” said Scott Zieg, Executive Director at ColumbiaSoft Corporation. “With our new DocuSign Connector, documents can be signed online and while on the go using a laptop or mobile device.”

The connector streamlines contract document management allowing users to send documents in Document Locator for electronic signature via their DocuSign account. The signing process is easier and documents are signed faster because electronic signatures eliminate the hassles, costs and lack of security in printing, scanning, faxing and overnighting paper documents. The entire signing process is completed digitally while keeping information secure and delivering legally enforceable contracts.

A “send for signature” step in Document Locator’s workflow automatically sends the file for signature with DocuSign. The signer receives an email asking them to review and sign the file. Once a document is complete, it’s automatically saved back into Document Locator as a new, signed version. Workflow can continue the process further if needed, for example routing the file for countersignature, notifying key stakeholders, or applying records policies.

The signing process can also be combined with electronic forms, speeding up the approval and sign-off of form based procedures. When a form is submitted, it is immediately routed for electronic signature to complete the process quickly, easily and securely.
