Gain Control Over Your Agreements With Docusign Enhanced Plans

Increasing adoption of electronic signature technology  means some of your employees probably have their own personal Docusign eSignature accounts. But allowing employees to use these accounts for contracts can be challenging if you’re trying to gain greater control over—and insight into—your agreement processes companywide. 

For one thing, well-intentioned employees with “rogue” accounts may create documents for e-signature that don’t accurately reflect your company’s brand. They may also unknowingly bypass critical security and compliance protocols.

But most importantly: You as a small business owner or administrator have no way of seeing into the mechanics of these disparate accounts, so there’s no way to establish a standard of customer care.

And should an employee leave your organization, all agreements executed under their eSignature account are their property—you have no legal right to originals or copies of the documents. 

Upgrading to a Docusign Enhanced Plan is a great way to put these concerns to rest for your company—while at the same time creating a more efficient, secure, and frictionless signing experience for employees and customers alike. 

Benefits of Enhanced Plans for your small business 

Consistency across your agreement actions. A Docusign Enhanced Plan gives you the tools to create a consistent, secure, and legally binding signing experience for everyone involved in an agreement.

Branded document templates make it easy to apply your company’s visual identity—your logo and colors—to all your documents and related workflows, including reminder emails. Customers benefit from a familiar look and feel they trust, while employees benefit from quick access to time-saving templates. After executing a document once, they’ll never have to re-enter a recipient’s boilerplate data on contracts, invoices,  and purchase orders again.  

Central casting for your contracts. A Docusign Enhanced Plan lets you manage user permissions for employees and third parties, oversee contract terms and billing and safeguard agreement data—all from a single location.

For even stronger control, you can add new users and enforce secure access management across all your corporate applications with Single Sign-On (SSO), which lets employees enter sign-in credentials just once for a variety of tasks.

Use Docusign Enhanced to easily track the status of contracts across your business, as well as search or analyze archived documents. 

Speed and simplicity. With a Docusign Enhanced Plan, you also gain access to tools for speeding and simplifying the signing experience, including: 

  • SMS text reminders as notice of real-time signature needs sent directly to client mobile devices, enabling customers to quickly sign documents from wherever they are. 
  • Guided forms that provide a step-by-step, mobile-ready experience to help your signers complete long or complex forms.
  • Click-to-agree functionality with Docusign Click provides an easy way to capture (and track) customers’ consent to your company’s standard terms and agreements—such as your privacy policy— on your website.
  • Integrated payments functionality with Docusign Payments allows you to collect credit card, PayPal, Stripe, and other payments at signing.  

“Salespeople love the fact that [with Docusign Enhanced Plans] they can send a contract on their own and close it on their own, and not have to go to Legal. From a sales perspective, that’s something that they want to see through, to close their own sales cycle. Docusign has definitely provided that empowerment—which is huge.” —Prabhjeet M., Contracts Manager, Tune Inc.
