The holidays are right around the corner, and we’re excited to announce our latest gift to our customers, the DocuSign Winter ‘19 Release! In line with DocuSign’s vision of modernizing the world’s Systems of Agreement, we’ve taken special care this quarter to deliver on key customer and partner asks to help you prepare, sign, act on and manage all of your agreements. Now, let’s jump into our latest product updates and enhancements this quarter.
Over the past few years, you’ve increasingly asked us to help automate and connect what happens not only during the signature process but also before and after. So that’s why we’re excited to offer you SpringCM Contract Management, which can help you accelerate and simplify all stages of your agreement process. It includes document generation, redlining, advanced workflows and a centralized document repository for all of your agreements, allowing for full-text search, tagging and access-control. And, of course, it is pre-integrated with DocuSign eSignature.
DocuSign for Salesforce is one of our most well-known and well-used connectors, and for good reason – it integrates DocuSign into the Salesforce user interface, so your Salesforce users can stay in Salesforce, and it automatically connects Salesforce data into your agreements, saving time and errors. Our latest DocuSign for Salesforce 7.2 update includes expanded reporting capabilities and new Process Builder support, which enables automation and sending of envelopes in bulk. For example, you can now automatically send envelopes 30 days before quarter end to kick off your renewals process.
Next up, we’ve made several enhancements to our Part 11 Module, making it even easier for our Life Sciences customers to maintain compliance with 21 CFR Part 11 regulations. We’ve brought some familiar features from our core DocuSign platform over to the Part 11 Module, including Signature Preview, Bulk Send and Signing Groups Support. This means you can now preview two different layouts of your Part 11 enabled signature on an agreement, send out a regulated agreement to many people at once, and even send your regulated agreement to a predefined group of recipients for sign-off. Customers can start taking advantage of these updates in January.
For our users who employ assistive or adaptive technologies, we have improved Accessibility Support. Our signing experience has been updated to include enhanced keyboard navigation and controls as well as expanded compatibility with screen readers and browsers based on the standards and guidelines of Section 508 and WCAG 2.0 Level AA. These guidelines exist to make web technologies more accessible to people with disabilities such as impaired sight.
And last but not least is our iOS UX Refresh, which is the new mobile experience you’ll see when using the DocuSign app on iOS devices. As a result of multiple usability studies, the updated DocuSign iOS app includes streamlined navigation to help you send and sign agreements faster than ever.
Stay tuned for upcoming releases and as always, take a look at the Release Notes to learn about our latest capabilities.
