Salesforce and DocuSign Integrate, Deals Close in the Cloud  DocuSign has one essential goal: To standardize electronic signatures. Buttressing their M.O. this week is Salesforce, which has been granted with an enhanced integration that generates documents on the fly, helps sales organizations shorted the sales cycle, reduce costs and see real-time pipeline updates in Chatter.

DocuSign for Salesforce essentially allows users to enter data, initial, date, and sign contracts online, all while updating accounts automatically. Most document types are supported, and processes such as identity management/user authentication, forms/data collection, workflow automation, and storage are provided.

Key perks include: 

  • Connect with Documents in the Cloud – Users can grab forms and documents from Salesforce Content, as well as, Dropbox and Google Docs, to quickly and easily send contracts for signature in the cloud..
  • Single Sign On with your Salesforce Password – Single Sign On functionality allows users to automatically sign into DocuSign with their existing Salesforce username and password so they only need to remember one password.
  • Mobile In-Person Signing – Users can create an order in Salesforce from anywhere with an iPad or other mobile device and hand to a customer to sign on the spot.
  • Share Your Deals with Salesforce Chatter – Now your documents can Chatter automatically, so you know when a contract is sent, viewed, forwarded and signed.  

“With eight of ten electronic signatures in the cloud DocuSigned, more businesses have standardized on DocuSign than all other electronic signature solutions combined,” said Keith Krach, chairman and CEO at DocuSign. “DocuSign is excited to further our partnership with as the pioneer and leader in cloud computing. Our deep integration makes it possible for sales organizations, like who uses DocuSign as their exclusive eSignature solution, to quickly and easily ‘Close it in the Cloud."

DocuSign isn't the only one stoked about the enhanced integration. The partnership further proves's value as a Customer Experience powerhouse, especially highlighting the platform. 

We'll see some of this action at this year's Dreamforce 2011 conference in San Francisco, which begins on the 30th of this month and runs to September 2nd.
