Biometric Electronic Signatures Solution Improves Contract Process while Supporting Environment

ORLANDO, FLA. — (April 20, 2009) — AssureSign LLC’s Biometric Electronic Signature Technology has been selected as the electronic signature solution by the Center for Resource Solutions (CRS), a San Francisco-based national nonprofit working to mitigate climate change by building policies and consumer protection mechanisms in renewable energy, greenhouse gas reductions, and energy efficiency.

As an organization that works to promote renewable energy, CRS wanted to implement a paperless, electronic signing solution which would both support its efforts to aid the environment, as well as save the organization time and money. CRS wanted a product they could trust, that would be cost-effective, integrate with Salesforce CRM, and would be user-friendly, adding value to organizational services. AssureSign Electronic Signature Technology was the solution that was able to fulfill all of their requirements.

AssureSign enables CRS to create documents and easily send to clients who expect sustainable options. With AssureSign for Salesforce CRM, CRS is able to pull existing data from standard Salesforce tabs into a document and send it to a client to be signed remotely and immediately, and clients feel comfortable using the service. AssureSign Electronic Signature Technology has diminished the organization’s need for faxes and long waiting periods for signed contracts to arrive by mail, which had previously taken up to several weeks.

“We work hard to help businesses find sustainable options that reduce dependence on fossil fuels, and one important way is through energy efficiency,” said Justin Roth, program analyst at the Center for Resource Solutions. “AssureSign has helped us achieve personal efficiency by increasing our productivity and moving us towards a paperless workflow. The remote service saves everyone time, money and resources.”

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, contracts are signed and CRS is notified the moment that signing is completed. Documents now have turnaround times as short as two minutes.

“With just a mouse, an Internet connection and our patent-pending electronic signature, the Center for Resource Solutions is able to expedite the contract process directly through Salesforce CRM, saving time and money, which is essential for the durability of a nonprofit organization,” said David W. Brinkman, chief executive officer of AssureSign LLC. “And as a green partner, CRS shares our commitment to the protection of our environment, a topic that is always of great importance, but is particularly top of mind this week, as April 22 is Earth Day.”
