Sign Here: Microsoft Partners With DocuSign for eSignature Support in Office 365
The app will be tightly integrated into Word, SharePoint Online, SharePoint Server 2013, and Outlook. All of the processed documents will be stored on OneDrive for Business. It's a major coup for Microsoft. As many companies weigh their document options (and even newfangled competitors such as Google Docs), having DocuSign support makes it easier to convince major businesses to stay put. In the business realm, DocuSign is the gold standard for digital signatures, with everything from basic contracts to multi-million dollar real estate deals inked digitally using its suite of products.
As we move forward, it'll be these types of partnerships that make or break document suites. Everyone's well aware of free alternatives, but those premium services are going to become the new bargaining chips in this realm.
