Lawful and court-admissible
Electronic signatures are lawful in most global jurisdictions for the vast majority of agreements. Once an agreement is electronically signed, DocuSign secures the document and signatures with a tamper-evident seal. An executed agreement includes a court-admissible Certificate of Completion, as well as party names, email addresses, public IP addresses, and a time-stamped chain-of-custody audit trail that records all important document activity — exceeding what is possible with paper-based agreements.
Save time and increase productivity
The DocuSign System of Agreement platform simplifies and accelerates agreement preparation, execution, and management, reducing the cost of administrative tasks, such as printing, faxing, scanning, overnight mailing, and storage. And it integrates seamlessly with legal document management systems, digital electronic signature technologies, and existing processes.
