EchoSign Announces Salesforce Certification for AppExchange: First Signature Automation Solution to Fully Integrate With Salesforce

PALO ALTO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 27, 2007 -- EchoSign, the first signature automation solution to fully integrate with Salesforce.com, today announced that is certified by Salesforce as meeting its highest standards for AppExchange applications. With Salesforce.com integration, EchoSign's web-based contract management and e-signature service enables businesses to easily track the real-time status of all of their contracts enterprise-wide, and to have all their signed contracts automatically uploaded into Salesforce.com.

"EchoSign for Salesforce picks up where Salesforce leaves off -- when you actually need to get that customer contract signed," said Jason Lemkin, CEO of EchoSign. "And, EchoSign eliminates the guessing game of trying to figure out which contracts are signed and which aren't. With EchoSign, contracts are automatically signed, tracked and filed instantly, and now easily accessed from Salesforce."

With EchoSign's integration with Salesforce, it provides businesses with:

--  Real time visibility into every contract out for signature from within
    Salesforce
--  Sophisticated virtual fax system or e-signature capability
--  Automatically updates Salesforce accounts with PDF copies of all
    signed contracts
    
According to a recent Aberdeen Group study, 85 percent of companies track contracts manually, resulting in high administrative costs, lost revenue and long sales cycles. EchoSign automates the process of tracking, managing, archiving and obtaining signatures for contracts, all via an easy-to-use web service that is accessible from any location. With EchoSign, the average contract goes from quote-to-close in less than 83 minutes -- versus 36+ hours with standard manual fax processes.

Bluewolf Group, the leading Salesforce implementation partner, has adopted EchoSign as its standard process for getting contracts signed and managed. Bluewolf Group has also selected EchoSign as a key SaaS leader to present at its upcoming On-Demand Summit for hundreds of leading Salesforce.com customers.

According to Glen Stoffel, Vice President of Sales at Bluewolf, "Bluewolf has adopted EchoSign to streamline our internal contract management processes. We now know exactly where every deal is -- signed, out for signature, or still waiting to close. This is an ideal AppExchange product because it installs quickly and easily without customizations or extra coding."

EchoSign for AppExchange is one of the fast growing of the more than 500 applications that are now available on Salesforce.com's AppExchange, the world's first on-demand application directory, found at http://www.appexchange.com. IT|Redux, the leading Office 2.0 blog, recently cited EchoSign as "an AppExchange application I just cannot live without."
