Dreamforce Flash: How digital signatures amount to big enterprise savings

Today, leveraging electronic signatures to handle contracts and docs seems like a no-brainer. It accelerates the speed of business, which is also amounting to better sales, candidate, employee and partner experiences. It’s also translating into big savings as these use cases, highlighted during Adobe’s EchoSign Dreamforce panel, demonstrate:

  1. At Time Warner, electronic signatures meant that contracts could be completed in as little as two hours.
  2. At NetApp’s signing NDAs was a time-consuming headache. By creating an electronic “instant NDA” they have eliminated over 75,000+ resource hours or over 36 years of aggregated sales cycle times.
  3. For Western Union, they want to be as easy as possible to do business with. With electronic signature they’ve reduced the sales onboarding process by 45% for their half million channel partners.
  4. Human capital management is critically important for Deloitte. To make their candidate experience more efficient, they implemented EchoSign to expedite their offer letters. Leveraging digital signatures, the experience improved for both employees and candidates. Since deploying Salesforce and EchoSign Deloitte has saved the equivalent of ten headcounts amounting to $500K in one year – contributing to the bottom line as well.

The good news is that business process innovation continues at breakneck speed. The only question is what will the next no-brainer be?
