Stocks in this article: MSFT

REDMOND, Wash. and SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Microsoft Corp. and DocuSign on Monday announced a long-term strategic partnership to make DocuSign's industry-leading eSignature apps widely available from within Microsoft Office 365. DocuSign's eSignature apps for Office 365, available in the Office Store in early March, will provide customers with the ability to submit and sign documents without leaving Microsoft applications, allowing them to quickly, seamlessly and confidently transact their business.

"Leading partners like DocuSign are building apps on the Office platform to help our customers get more value directly from their most highly used applications," said John Case, vice president of Marketing, Microsoft Office. "This partnership with DocuSign helps our customers keep transactions digital and manage eSignatures seamlessly from within Office 365, where they already communicate, collaborate and create."

DocuSign's new solutions, built on the Office 365 platform, will include integration within Outlook, Word, SharePoint Online and SharePoint Server 2013. Customers can expect the following:

  • Easy administration and use. Office 365 and SharePoint administrators will be able to add DocuSign Apps for all users directly from their administration consoles.
  • Single sign-on. DocuSign has adopted Windows Azure Active Directory to provide single sign-on capabilities with Office 365 credentials, providing a seamless path to manage accounts.
  • Secured storage. DocuSigned documents are automatically stored in Microsoft OneDrive for Business for full control.
  • Office Store availability. Individuals can use self-service to access the apps and Word templates directly from the Office Store.
  • Continued innovation. DocuSign and Microsoft will continue to collaborate to bring new innovations to customers on the Office 365 platform.

"We're excited about the momentum behind Office 365 and customers making the transition from their traditional Office applications to all-new scenarios enabled by cloud services," said Keith Krach, chairman and CEO, DocuSign. "We believe Office 365 customers of all sizes will appreciate the seamless availability of DocuSign integrated into the applications they use every day. The combination of Microsoft and DocuSign further helps organizations keep business digital, and leverages the power of the cloud to help them focus on business results."

"MetLife has already made the move to the cloud with both Office 365 and DocuSign," said Marty Lippert, executive vice president of Global Technology and Operations, MetLife. "This deeper partnership between Microsoft and DocuSign will bring the best of the cloud together as a single solution to help our company be more productive with improved security and control as we drive to become a more digital enterprise. This partnership will help us deliver better service for our customers and make us more productive."

DocuSign will demonstrate the new DocuSign Apps at Microsoft's SharePoint 2014 Conference, March 3–6, in Las Vegas, and at DocuSign MOMENTUM, March 4–6, in San Francisco. Microsoft is a longtime DocuSign customer, using DocuSign in over 100 use cases around the world.
