Today, Microsoft announced the 2014 Partner of the Year Award winners and finalists and we are thrilled to share that out of 3,200 nominations, Microsoft selected DocuSign as the 2014 Office and SharePoint App Developer Partner of the Year winner!

This award is a huge testament to the tireless efforts of the DocuSign development team, as well as all the customers, partners, and users who have given us critical feedback for continuous improvement. We also want to give a HUGE shout out to the Office Dev Center team for their continued support of the community and the APIs. 

DocuSign has three native apps built on the Office 365 platform available in the Office Store that bring together DocuSign's industry-leading eSignature and Digital Transaction Management service with Office 365, the world's leading productivity solution. The Office 365 platform gives us the ability to provide the over one billion Office users around the world with a comprehensive end-to-end experience. With the DocuSign Apps for Office 365, users can move seamlessly between document creation, editing, storage and transaction management  – all within the secure and familiar Office 365 experience.

These apps are built on Azure Active Directory to provide single sign-on capabilities with Office 365 credentials, providing a seamless path to manage accounts with the security and compliance you expect. Office 365 and SharePoint administrators can add the DocuSign Apps for all users directly from their administration consoles.

When we announced the DocuSign and Microsoft long-term strategic partnership in February, we aspired to create immediate impact. We could not be more proud of our team that works tirelessly to ensure our apps provide the best possible experience and value for our customers. Here's to everyone that made this award possible!
