The event underscores the shift from manual, paper-based processes to faster, easier, more convenient and secure digital business among organizations of every size and industry. Today, the vast majority of C-level executives have digital transformation among their top three strategic objectives. For many, it's the top priority as going digital positively impacts nearly every area where businesses are measured, including revenues, efficiency and costs, security and compliance, customer experience, and sustainability.

"We expect that the most successful businesses will be fully digital by the end of the decade – a trend we're seeing mirrored here in Chicago," said Neil Hudspith, President of Worldwide Field Operations at DocuSign. "Across the DocuSign Global Trust Network, we're finding organizations of all sizes are advancing their digital agendas to be the disruptors in their industry, rather than the disrupted. The time has never been better to start or advance a company's digital journey to drive competitive advantage before it's too late."

DocuSign's Momentum X events bring together key learnings, insights and best practices on going paperless from thought leaders and industry luminaries around the world. Attendees will discover the leadership, technology and culture requirements for taking their business fully digital, learning from other digital heroes who've led their industries, companies and departments through transformation.
