Previously known as EchoSign, Adobe eSign services brings trusted e-signatures to your organization and makes 100% digital workflows a reality. It integrates with the entire Adobe Document Cloud portfolio of solutions. And it’s the only e-sign solution that lets you create secure digital document processes across your entire organization — while partnering with a single vendor.
The company is a direct competitor to DocuSign which took a substantial round of financing in the summer of 2007. EchoSign fired back with a second round of $6 million and partnerships with CRM powerhouse Salesforce.com, NetSuite, SAP, WebEx and Zoho.
Salesforce.com named EchoSign to the "Best Apps of 2012, "Best Apps of 2011", "Best Apps of 2010", "Best Apps of 2009" and "Best Apps of 2008", as well as a three-time AppExchange Essential.
eSign's signature process requires users to email documents through its system which takes care of the signing process on the other side. The recipients can e-sign instantly in any browser, an iPhone or a Blackberry, or via a widget on any website. Or if desired, recipients can sign by fax using a toll-free fax gateway.
eSign also offers full integration with Google Apps / Google Docs, NetSuite, SAP Sourcing, Oracle CRM On Demand, eFax, DropBox, Evernote, Box.net, SugarCRM, Xobni and SpringCM.
In July 2011, EchoSign was acquired by Adobe.
