Dropbox launches new eSign feature for enterprises
FYI, this story is more than a year old
Dropbox has launched HelloSign for enterprises, enabling businesses to sign documents 80% faster with a three times higher completion rate.
According to Dropbox, enterprise companies are hyper-focused on the delivery of their products and services, but the time and effort for printing, signing, and scanning documents has been overlooked.
According to the company, many businesses are still using legacy standards of pen and paper to get documents signed. This is because most companies are in the early days of their digital transformation and know little about eSignatures.
They might have questions about the usability of eSignatures, the implementation, and of course, the security, Dropbox says.
This inspired Dropbox to launch HelloSign to enterprise. Businesses that are already using Dropbox for their collaboration and storage can now integrate HelloSign into their workflows in Office 365, Salesforce, G-Suite and more.
On average, contracts are signed 80% faster, along with a three times higher completion rate versus pen and paper according to G2Crowd.
With HelloSign, all communications are safeguarded by Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption. Beyond that, each document is stored behind a firewall and authenticated against the sender's session every time it's requested.
All documents are then encrypted with a unique key and regularly rotating master key, Dropbox states.
In addition, HelloSign is compliant with ISO 27001, SOC 2 Type II, HIPAA, GDPR, eIDAS, and more. Furthermore, HelloSign has 99.99% uptime and is a SkyHigh CloudTrust provider with the highest available rating of ‘Enterprise-Ready’.
Joseph Fuller, global head of IT for Deputy, one of the first Australian businesses to use HelloSign with Dropbox, says, “It was simple to set up integrations with Dropbox and Google Docs for our workflows.
“Our team was already using Dropbox to share files, so the learning curve wasn't hard - from notifying recipients, to storing documents where we needed them, and all while keeping within our compliance rules, and requiring little manual work.”
Fuller says, “We’re wading into eSignature, like many companies today, and are already seeing value in using HelloSign within our people and culture team.
“They’re able to send documents to employees, such as performance reviews, promotions, and our P&C team to counter sign (and file away.) We're an all-SaaS company, so we're happy to not have a filing cabinet full of sensitive documents sitting in a corner collecting dust.”
HelloSign Enterprise is available now to Dropbox Enterprise customers, with further availability planned for the near future.
