DocuSign Releases New In-Session Signing to Accelerate Online Applications

Customers Can Visit a Web site, Complete and Submit Forms and Sign an Application All in a Single Web Session

SEATTLE, WA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 23, 2006 -- DocuSign®, the leading on-demand electronic signature service, today announced the availability of DocuSign In-Session Signing, a new service specifically designed to allow companies to integrate DocuSign directly into their existing web portals and e-commerce offerings.

DocuSign In-Session Signing allows a customer to visit a Web site, complete a form and sign an application all in one visit. The DocuSign On-demand Signing Service ensures proper security, user authentication, and document non-repudiation, and leads the industry in ease of use and flexibility.

Typical uses for in-session electronic signatures include:

--  Consumer loan applications
--  Credit card applications
--  Insurance applications and claims
--  Mortgage transaction processing
--  Debt consolidation
--  Account opening

DocuSign integrates easily into existing software applications

The integration of DocuSign into existing applications can be done quickly and easily because it is offered as an XML/SOAP web service which enables the customer to control all aspects of the document signing process via software.

DocuSign provides the 'missing link' many companies need to enable a complete end-to-end transaction process that requires documents to be signed. Companies are realizing that the ability to quickly and efficiently close sales by leveraging electronic signatures greatly increases customer retention and dramatically increases the sales close rate.

The addition of DocuSign In-Session Signing expands the breadth of the services DocuSign offers. DocuSign also supports the ability for individuals to securely and quickly send any document on their PC for signature to anyone in the world and sign remotely using only a web browser at a fraction of the cost of traditional signing methods.

DocuSign provides immediate ROI

"Many e-commerce customers are only able to execute some of their transactions online, and are forced to turn to a paper process to obtain signatures," said Tom Gonser, VP of Product Strategy at DocuSign. "In typical e-commerce transactions that require signatures, customers have to download and sign documents, or the customer has to physically send documents via overnight express. This decreases close rates, increases errors, and adds cost. Now, with DocuSign In-Session Signing, the entire ecommerce transaction, including signing documents, can happen online, increasing sales close rates, eliminating signing errors, lowering paper costs, and reducing postage fees."
