The DocuSign Signature City Tour recently wrapped up its journey of the UK with great aplomb. Having set off on the (8.5 hour) first-leg drive from our London office to The Balmoral Hotel in Edinburgh, I don’t think I’ve ever witnessed a more tightly packed car than that of our Volvo XC60. Fortunately for us, the drive was made worthwhile by the response we received during the first of these 8 half-day events that have been running throughout EMEA and the US since the New York kick-off in September.
Stewart Anderson joined us in one of capital’s most regal venues to share Edinburgh University’s interesting DocuSign use case within the Research and Innovation department. With Stewart describing how the department’s legacy process has been reduced from 4 days to <1 hour, it was great to see the impact DocuSign is having on one of the top-performing enterprise universities in the UK (and the ambitious plans for future expansion within the University).
The following day we moved south of the border to a busy room at The Lowry in Manchester where we changed up the presentation format slightly, but continued with the momentum. DocuSign’s Phil Lelliott was up to host a panel with Paul Hodnett of Utilities Direct and Kay Fallowfield from Qhotels, who shared best practice on the topic of eSignature within their respective industries. As always, DocuSign’s technical specialists were on hand to demonstrate the product in action.
The third and final leg on the UK tour landed us in the culture capital of the West. The wonderfully alternative MShed museum held our largest tour so far, where we had three presenters from Nine Group, Brightpearl and Business West illustrate why Bristol’s tech scene is thriving with the continued investment in disruptive technology.
Next month brings the tour to an end as we squeeze the remaining five trips within Europe, the Middle East and Africa in to a busy November. For our largest DocuSign tour yet, we are very excited to get back out on the road and even more so to meet our customers and the business leaders of tomorrow. We look forward to welcoming you soon!
