SAN FRANCISCO - Tuesday, December 3rd 2013 [ME NewsWire]
(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Leading procurement organizations have standardized on DocuSign’s global eSignature platform to streamline management of suppliers, vendors, and contract processes. Procurement departments DocuSign to accelerate transaction times to increase satisfaction, slash costs, and reduce supply chain risk in progressive companies like Ch2m Hill, CITGO Petroleum, Cisco Capital, Gate Gourmet, GE Capital, HP, McAfee, Magna Powertrain, McKesson, Nationwide, Reed Elsevier, salesforce.com, Tata Communications, and others.
“DocuSign is the standard for eSignature in the procurement business,” said Jack Miles, managing partner at MainSpring Advisors, former Secretary of the State of Florida Department of Management Services, and former head of procurement for companies including AIG, CA, CIBA, and Travelers. “DocuSign leads the industry with its world-class transaction management platform that helps global supply chain organizations streamline purchasing, slash costs, and minimize risk.”
“The best business leaders seek to learn from each other on how to improve their customer experience, quality, and bottom line,” said Barry Wiegler, advisor to B2B industry organizations and founder and former sixteen year CEO, Sourcing Interests Group. “There is no hotter interest area right now in procurement than keeping business digital and no hotter technology than DocuSign to make it happen. With its integration with procurement industry leader Ariba, DocuSign helps streamline and automate purchasing processes to accelerate the speed of business.”
“DocuSign has made it easier to do business with HP,” said John Hinshaw, executive vice president of technology and operations at HP. “Documents that used to take five to six weeks now can take just hours. It is probably the fastest ROI of any software we’ve rolled out.”
"DocuSigning has become the standard for how business gets done across organizations of every size and industry in today's digital economy," said Keith Krach, chairman and CEO, DocuSign. "DocuSign creates synergy across business departments – including sales, service, finance, HR, legal, and procurement – by automating and streamlining transactions to accelerate speed to results, dramatically reduce costs, and delight customers, partners, and suppliers."
Procurement organizations have standardized on DocuSign to:

That’s astounding ROI.”
“The results we’ve seen in our procurement process – dramatically faster contract turn around especially across time zones and the elimination of the dependency on administrative staff to track down open contracts – have made it an easy decision to standardize on DocuSign for eSignature across our business,” said Vinod Giri, vice president, Tata Communications. “We’re now DocuSigning in sales, customer service, product management, operations, finance, and IT for even greater value and ROI across our enterprise.”
