In Aragon Research’s latest Digital Transaction Management Globe Report, AssureSign was named a Leader among the industry’s 20 identified vendors. In all four of Aragon’s published Globe Reports, AssureSign’s been noted as an industry ‘Innovator’ or ‘Leader’ when juxtaposed with the trends of other vendors and industry players.
In addition to noting the expansion of our leadership team, the Report highlights our continued partnership with Microsoft heading into 2020. AssureSign Connect, the eSignature partnership program of choice among Microsoft partners, plans to build on existing relationships like an existing alliance with Microsoft along with fostering new opportunities in multiple markets. Mentions of our open APIs and short-code adoption can also be found within the report:
“In 2019, [AssureSign] announced enhanced support for eSign via Text for DTM transactions by implementing short codes. This enhancement allows its customers and recipients to recognize that messages have originated from a verified business or brand. Additionally, the short code service allows clients utilizing the eSign via Text feature to send documents for signature via text message without the risk of having messages blocked by cell phone carriers.”
Aragon defines both strengths and challenges among all the identified vendors, which collectively determines their placement within the Leader, Innovator, Contender, or Specialist sector. AssureSign was noted for six independent strengths:
1. SMB and Enterprise Focus
As the most tenured and experienced electronic signature vendor, AssureSign understands that use cases are contingent on business size. That’s why our pricing is designed to be flexible and simple with packaged options suitable for everyone, from the smallest of businesses to the largest of corporations.
2. Cloud Deployment Options
The 2020 Globe Report, like its three preceding reports, calls attention to the versatility of deployment options available to AssureSign users. Options range from public and private clouds, or on-premises deployment. Having the most diverse deployment options available among eSignature vendors empowers you to customize and select the eSign package that works best for your business!
3. SMS/Text Support (eSign via Text solution)
eSign via Text Message remains the only SMS/text message based eSigning function native to an electronic signature vendor. For this reason, AssureSign is often noted in categories espousing mobile minded technologies, and Aragon’s 2020 Globe Report is no different in its mentioning of the solution’s recent enhancement.
“The short code service allows clients utilizing the eSign via Text feature to send documents for signature via text message without the risk of having messages blocked by cell phone carriers.”

5. U.S./Canada/and EU Cloud Data Hosting
