Realising business transformation with Adobe Sign

Success doesn’t come to those who wait – particularly to organisations relying on manually signed documents in today’s digital age. It may seem straightforward, but the benefits that the right e-sign solution can deliver are truly remarkable, and worthy of further exploration.

Get documents signed in minutes, not weeks.

It’s not a stretch to say that digitising the signing process with a secure, auditable and legally recognised workflow can revolutionise business processes overnight.

Whether closing deals, signing-up new customers or securing new hires, Adobe Sign can deliver significant resource efficiencies and dramatically slash the time lost between issuing and receiving back a signed document.

  • RealEstate.com.au achieved faster time to market with 90% of contracts signed electronically.
  • Telefonica cut the average time to get employee contracts signed and returned by 92 percent – a process that typically took three weeks was cut down to 11 hours.1
  • Lease Plan had an average contract completion time of 23 and a half days. They were able to cut 19 days off the cycle, reducing the paperwork burden and giving salespeople more time to work with new customers2
  • Royal Dutch Airlines eliminated the printing of one million sheets of paper in a single year by using electronic signatures in their travel rewards program with partners.3


Simple, secure, trusted

As with any new solution deployment, security will rightly be at the forefront of discussions. Legal and IT teams can rest easy knowing that Adobe Sign complies with the broadest range of local and international industry regulations and legal requirements. This includes Australia’s Electronic Transactions Act 1999, allowing almost every type of document to be signed using electronic signatures.

Integration with existing business workflows

IT, Legal and HR departments have tended to be wary of introducing new tools outside of existing business workflows. Going beyond the security concerns discussed previously, integration with existing IT infrastructure can no doubt jeopardise the success of a solution deployment. Adobe Sign overcomes this with out of the box integration with major accounting, collaboration, CRM and productivity suites plus open APIs enable rapid integration with proprietary tools.

Adobe’s partnership with Microsoft is particularly noteworthy. As the preferred e-signature solution across the Microsoft portfolio, users can enjoy the benefits of Adobe Sign from right within the solutions they use most, with native integration with Microsoft Office 365, Dynamics 365 and SharePoint delivering the ultimate in productivity and collaboration.


HR, legal, procurement, customer acquisition

Many organisations begin exploring digital signature capability for a narrow, specific application. However, that initial implementation typically snowballs rapidly as the potential for more and more workflow efficiencies are identified throughout the organisation.

ROI can be achieved within 3-6 months

With many organisations jaded by hyped technology claims, scepticism is understandable. There are runs on the board though – Adobe Sign has been evolving for more than 10 years, transforming with organisations to deliver a seamless, secure e-sign solution available on any device, and trusted for more than 6 billion sign transactions last year alone. This is proven technology and the radical process transformation it enables delivers immediate impact.

In most organisations, ROI through signing of electronic forms can be achieved within 3-6 months. Even complex business processes can be automated to remove manual steps that traditionally have inflated time and cost.
