Biometric Electronic Signature Solution Enhances Organization’s Green Initiative

ORLANDO, FLA. — (June 29, 2009) — AssureSign LLC’s Biometric Electronic Signature Technology has been selected as the electronic signature solution by the Carbon Trust Standard Company, a UK-based organization that measures and certifies real carbon reduction by companies. Carbon Trust Standard Company is part of the Carbon Trust, whose mission is to accelerate the move to a low carbon economy by working with organizations to reduce carbon emissions and develop commercial low carbon technologies.

As an organization that works to promote low carbon technology, the Carbon Trust Standard Company was looking for a paperless, electronic signature solution to expedite document authorizations for carbon emission estimations. They wanted a solution which would support their efforts to aid the environment, as well as save the organization time and money, with complete Salesforce CRM integration.

AssureSign for Salesforce CRM enables the Carbon Trust Standard Company to pull existing data from standard Salesforce tabs to quickly and easily create a document and send it to a client to be signed immediately. AssureSign Electronic Signature Technology enables the Carbon Trust Standard Company to obtain Carbon Trust Standard certification orders in a highly efficient manner, greatly reducing carbon emissions and waiting periods associated with documents returned by mail.

Since the entire AssureSign Electronic Signature process is tracked digitally, users have a complete forensic audit trail of the delivery and signing process. This enables users to know exactly when documents are received, when they are signed, and who has or has not signed them, providing users with complete control over the signing process. With the implementation of AssureSign, the Carbon Trust Standard Company can follow the signing process from start to finish in Salesforce CRM and receive notification the moment that signing is complete.

“AssureSign is responsive to our needs and is always looking for ways to enhance their application,” said Ben Ingram, at the Carbon Trust. “The Salesforce integration was simple and took very little time, and we were able to customize AssureSign to fit our needs.”

“Requiring nothing more than a mouse, an Internet connection and our patent-pending electronic signature, AssureSign enables the Carbon Trust to obtain expedited signatures and document management in Salesforce CRM,” said David W. Brinkman, chief executive officer of AssureSign LLC. “It saves the organization time and money, which is essential for the durability of a nonprofit organization, and as a paperless solution, supports their commitment to the protection of the environment.”
