LONDON, October 3, 2016

As recognition for its overall user experience, performance and integration into Microsoft Office and SharePoint, DocuSign’s eSignature and Digital Transaction Management (DTM) platform was today awarded first place winner in the Best Mobile App award as part of the Office App Awards at Microsoft Ignite 2016.

DocuSign’s deep integrations with Microsoft technologies – including Office 365, Dynamics CRM, SharePoint, Outlook, Word, Windows and Windows Phone – help Microsoft customers make every agreement digital for faster speed to results, increased security and compliance, and great end user experiences. And the news builds on Microsoft choosing to standardise on DocuSign for Digital Transaction Management and eSignature.

“A core tenet of our strategic partnership with Microsoft is to drive adoption of the cloud by leveraging mobile technologies,” said Brad Brooks, head of product, engineering and marketing, DocuSign. “No matter where the day takes them, more than one billion Microsoft customers are able to quickly, easily and securely sign anything, anytime, anywhere with DocuSign to boost productivity and accelerate speed to results.”

“The success we’ve seen with DocuSign internally – the ease of use, speed of deployment and fast ROI – all led us to form a deeper strategic relationship with DocuSign to bring those same benefits to our customers,” said Peggy Johnson, EVP, Microsoft. “Microsoft is proud to be part of the DocuSign Global Trust Network.”

In early 2014, Microsoft and DocuSign announced a long-term strategic partnership to make DocuSign’s DTM platform application widely available across Microsoft products. DocuSign Apps for Microsoft provide customers with the ability to submit and sign documents without leaving Microsoft applications, allowing them to quickly, easily and securely transact business with trust and confidence. With DocuSign, Microsoft customers can manage eSignatures seamlessly from within the Microsoft applications they already use to communicate, collaborate and create.
