Research Marks Industry First: Open Social Research Leveraged to Analyze Technological Capability within Enterprises

Denver, CO (PRWEB) June 27, 2013

Ombud, the open research platform for B2B technology decisions, released a new report today predicting that traditional “wet ink” signatures will be largely replaced by cloud-based electronic signature technology by 2020. Ombud’s Open Research Report: eSignature Solutions, developed with its social research platform, shows companies using eSignature today have dramatically cut the cost and length of most typical B2B transactions.

“Ombud’s platform delivers real-time open research for IT procurement that can give enterprises unexpected competitive advantages,” said Thad Eby, founder and CEO, Ombud. “The Ombud Open Research Report: eSignature Solutions is a great example of how Ombud’s real-time market research helps enterprises identify their business needs and uncover the best solution for their business in an environment free from compensated opinions, hidden inclusions for criteria and vendor biases.”

Ombud’s Open Research Report: eSignature Solutions, which is issued this week to commemorate the 13th anniversary of the federal ESIGN Act, addresses how organizations are implementing technology solutions like eSignature to not only reduce costs and improve efficiency, but also to implement best practices producing revenue growth and higher customer satisfaction. According to the report, immediate technology adoption can produce a sustainable competitive advantage for companies within any industry. Enterprises that delay adoption of eSignature may be unable to compete in terms of customer satisfaction and organizational efficiency. The full report can be immediately accessed for free at http://www.ombud.com/r/eSignReport.

Open Research Report: eSignature Solutions was developed with Ombud’s social research and procurement platform and analyzed actual customer use cases and 230 capabilities across the financial services, government, insurance, technology and professional services industries. To determine emerging market trends, the report evaluated the top four eSignature vendors and examined eSignature usage in 15 enterprises. The vendors reviewed were selected based on enterprise inquiries among Ombud’s online community.
