Dun & Bradstreet and DocuSign announced a strategic partnership at Dreamforce today, with plans to merge Dun & Bradstreet credit and risk data into DocuSign’s popular business app, DocuSign for Salesforce.
DocuSign is the global standard for Digital Transaction Management (DTM) and e-signatures, so end users can complete document-based transactions, such as contracts, in a digital format that’s accessible on mobile devices and in the cloud. The DocuSign for Salesforce app enables Salesforce users to sign and send documents on any device, and it integrates with the Salesforce 1 platform so contracts can be archived alongside other client records.
The goal of the alliance is to enable Salesforce users to complete a degree of due diligence as part of the signing process, for instance checking financial risk factors at any point before e-signing a document. For savvy businesses, having up-to-the-minute access to commercial insight can help them lower their financial risk, enhance security and compliance, and simplify document archiving.
“We’re excited to partner with DocuSign as the global standard for Digital Transaction Management to help businesses make timely and better-informed decisions about whether or not they should proceed with a deal,” said Mike Sabin, General Manager of Alliances & Partnerships at Dun & Bradstreet. “With business moving faster than ever, even amidst increasing regulatory scrutiny, this new fully digital solution is a first line of defense in risk management.”
“We’re pleased to have Dun & Bradstreet as part of The DocuSign Global Trust Network,” said Reggie Davis, General Counsel, DocuSign. “Solutions like our new joint pre-contract due diligence app built on DocuSign’s award-winning API bring the value of Digital Transaction Management to more departments across the enterprise, helping further serve as a catalyst to all the benefits of the fully digital business.”
The enriched DocuSign app is planned for release later this year in North America via the Salesforce AppExchange.
