Scalability and global presence offers AssureSign a leg up
Orlando, Fla., May 22, 2012 – AssureSign LLC, a leading provider of electronic signature software for the insurance industry, today announced that it has selected and has begun offering its flagship application, AssureSign Electronic Signature Software, on Windows Azure. AssureSign will leverage Windows Azure’s ability to provide horizontal scalability and a globally diverse hosting platform.
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.
AssureSign has moved to adding components that run in Azure, and AssureSign multi-tenant clients benefit from increased reliability, geographic flexibility, and faster capacity growth by running their components on the AssureSign Azure instances. Enterprise clients find that a private 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.
“Our insurance customers rely on us for high-quality electronic signature solutions that offer the most up-to-date features,” said David W. Brinkman, AssureSign’s president and CEO. “We feel confident AssureSign on the Windows Azure platform will provide users with enhanced functionality, greater flexibility, uncompromised reliability and significant value.”
