Cloud aggregator rhipe is partnering with digital transaction management (DTM) and eSignature provider, DocuSign, to help its IT service provider partners’ customers transform their businesses by going fully digital.

rhipe’s new partnership with DocuSign will expand its cloud offering to rhipe’s 3000+ partners across APAC, which will, in turn, help businesses digitise processes to advance their moves to the cloud.

Chris Sharp, chief strategy officer at rhipe, says the company’s service provider partners will now be able to offer SMB and enterprise clients the ability to achieve revenue faster with agreements completed and signed error free in minutes.

In addition, businesses will be able to automate document processing, reduce operating costs, and increase customer satisfaction overall with the convenience of DocuSigning agreements anytime, anywhere, on any device.

“Companies around the world trust DocuSign’s secure, cloud-based platform, and this trust is one of the reasons behind our decision to partner with their industry-leading DTM platform and eSignature service as a reseller,” Sharp said.

“In recent years, IT service providers and resellers have seen their business transform to cloud and applications services, as they find new ways to manage hybrid cloud environments. This partnership will arm our service providers with the ability to offer a cutting edge seamless and digital process that will help APAC businesses focus on their clients as opposed to chasing and managing paperwork.”

“We are thrilled to welcome rhipe and its IT service provider partners to the DocuSign Global Trust Network of more than 250,000 companies and more than 100 million users across 188 countries,” said Mark Register, senior vice-president, business development and channels.

“rhipe is helping deliver DocuSign’s DTM platform and eSignature solution to APAC businesses so they can easily deploy digital processes without the traditional expense and programming required of older enterprise applications.”

Brad Newton, vice-president, APAC, DocuSign, said the partnership with rhipe would open up a whole new channel of growth for DocuSign in the region.

“This is an opportunity to introduce even more APAC businesses to the capabilities and benefits of the DocuSign platform, as so many look to innovative digital solutions to transform, and achieve business growth.”

According to Newton, with DocuSign, businesses achieve faster speed to results, lower cost, increased security and compliance, and better customer experiences and, on average, 84% of transactions are completed via DocuSign in less than one day, 62% in less than one hour; and 51% in 15 minutes or less – dramatically faster than the days or weeks typically required with paper.

DocuSign says, on average, it delivers $42 in value per document to customers — including hard dollar savings, productivity improvements and revenue gains — over paper methods.
