EchoSign Wins Beagle Research’s 2009 ‘CRM WizKids’ Award

May 27, 2009

PALO ALTO, Calif., May 27 /PRNewswire/ – EchoSign, the leading Web-based provider of electronic signatures and signature automation, with more than 800,000 users worldwide, today announced its selection as a winner of the 2009 WizKids Award from Beagle Research Group, LLC. The WizKids award is presented to emerging software companies that demonstrate new and innovative solutions to business problems encountered in the rapidly changing front office. In conjunction with the award, Beagle Research published a new report “WizKids 2009, Advances in the Front Office,” detailing the various ways enterprises can enhance their customer facing processes and make it easier to do business.

EchoSign won the award in conjunction with their customer Onvia, (Nasdaq: ONVI) a company that tracks all government purchasing activity in addition to commercial and residential projects in development for markets such as architecture and engineering, construction, IT/telecom, business consulting services, operations and maintenance, and transportation. EchoSign’s electronic signature solution was first rolled out to sales associates in June 2008, and their results have been impressive. With EchoSign, contracts come back in 24 hours or less and Onvia has noticed an uptick in transactions since using EchoSign. In addition, finance has access to the online version of every contract and is automatically copied on every incoming agreement. The finance team at Onvia found that with EchoSign, they can quickly verify every transaction and every contract. Most importantly, sales reps can quickly obtain a signature and provision the service immediately.

The WizKids 2009 Report reviews the new concept of operational excellence in the front office: “Traditionally, when we think of operational improvements we focus on back office processes that get a product out the door, and rightly so. But in a services market — especially one where services can be provisioned on the Internet, the products that need to get out the door, are increasingly those that support the front office, like contracts.

EchoSign’s approach to improving front office operations is insightful and provides an example of the possibilities inherent in improving operations for the front office.”
