DocuSign, a provider of on-demand electronic signature solutions, announced the general availability of its DocuSign Version 9 Fall Release. This release features several new capabilities, including ‘Designed for Mobile’ signing support for Apple Inc. iPhone and Research In Motion BlackBerry devices to make it faster and easier for customers to complete transactions while on the go. DocuSign's service is designed to enable businesses of all sizes to completely replace manual paper-based transactions with high-speed secure electronic transactions that happen faster, cost less and are more secure.

“DocuSign Version 9 Fall Release reflects the maturation of the industry and our customers who are requesting advanced signing features and even greater flexibility in the types of documents they can manage with DocuSign,” said Tom Gonser, founder and vice president of product strategy at DocuSign. “With this new release, DocuSign users receive a broad spectrum of new capabilities that will increase workflow efficiency, resulting in accelerated sales cycles and increased revenue.”

Key features of the release Include:

Mobile Signing—DocuSign has created a new signing process that is ‘Designed for Mobile’ users with Internet access from their iPhone, several different BlackBerry models and other mobile devices. These users can now view and e-sign documents on their handhelds, and see a new status console optimized for mobile browsers.

Fax Support— Signers can now elect to print and sign on paper, returning the documents by faxing them back into the DocuSign envelope. For example, notarized documents can be executed on paper and returned securely to the sender through the DocuSign transaction, and stored electronically.

Signer Attachments—DocuSign users can now request additional documentation from their signers such as a copy of a driver’s license, W-2 or other required documents right from the DocuSign envelope. Signers are able to upload or fax any of the required documents and complete the transaction online – creating a secure transaction with all of the documentation inside the DocuSign envelope.

Signature Sizing—DocuSign users can now easily re-size their electronic signature and initials to fit into smaller forms. The resulting signed documents are neater and easier to read.

Other new benefits include the ability for optional signatures, advanced correct function and an improved data entry functionality.
