AssureSign offers customers a new level of scalability and global presence
Orlando, Fla., July 9, 2012 – AssureSign LLC (http://www.assuresign.com) is an Altamonte Springs, FL based traditional ISV that was founded in 2008. It is an innovative provider of electronic signature solutions that help organizations of all sizes and across all industries save time and money by eliminating costly shipping fees and speeding up the signing process. Their solutions enable documents to be signed and returned within minutes, and tracked throughout the process.
- Problem: Increasingly, controlling costs, and lowering the time of sales workflow in the enterprise are driving greater acceptance of electronic signature processes. AssureSign has met this need with its own hosted SaaS offerings and on-premise installation options for larger enterprises. However, the infrastructure requirements for expansion due to increased electronic signature volume and the need for geographic flexibility, as well as the upfront costs of the infrastructure for enterprise clients looking for on-premise installations still require upfront investment that delays implementation of these processes.
- Solution: AssureSign has moved to add components that run on Microsoft Corp.’s Windows Azure, including worker roles for backend document processing, web roles for expansion of capacity of front end customer interfaces (including document electronic signing interfaces), and using Windows Azure BLOB Storage and SQL Azure. AssureSign multi-tenant clients benefit from increased reliability, geographic flexibility, and faster capacity growth by running their components on the AssureSign Windows Azure instances. Enterprise clients find that a private Windows Azure instance of AssureSign bridges the cost gap between large infrastructure purchases required for on-premise installs and SaaS environments, while ensuring isolation of data and processes required by IT.
- Benefit: AssureSign finds value in using Windows Azure by being able to offer quicker spin-up of private Windows Azure-based cloud instances of single-tenant AssureSign installations, and is able to rapidly spin up increased worker and web roles as needed to match new capacity requirements in its multi-tenant offering.
“With Xpertdoc already leveraging Microsoft Azure for our own cloud offering, we need to ensure our technology partners can keep up with the accelerated pace of adoption and greater expectations of fast turnaround time and elastic capacity” said Francis Dion, Xpertdoc CEO. “This is why we were elated to see AssureSign getting into the Azure platform themselves. The switch of our AssureSign configuration to Azure has been totally seamless for us, and we look forward to continue offering a compelling experience to our mutual customers by taking advantage of the full complement of Microsoft cloud technologies.”
“Windows Azure’s worldwide datacenters, elasticity, and flexible implementation options give AssureSign customers reliability, geographic flexibility, and the advantage of AssureSign’s ability to quickly increase capacity,” said Helene Love Snell, Director, Server and Tools Marketing, Microsoft. “We look forward to working with AssureSign.”
