Microsoft Corp. and DocuSign announced a partnership that will introduce the eSignature apps to Microsoft Office 365 users. The eSignature apps will be available in the Office Store in early March.
The new apps will allow users to to submit and sign documents without leaving Microsoft applications.
"This partnership with DocuSign helps our customers keep transactions digital and manage eSignatures seamlessly from within Office 365, where they already communicate, collaborate and create", said John Case, vice president of Marketing, Microsoft Office. The eSiganture apps will be integrated within Outlook, Word, SharePoint Online and SharePoint Server 2013.
One of the features is that it allows Office 365 and SharePoint administrators to add DocuSign Apps for all users directly from their administration consoles. Also, the storage is secured by using Microsoft OneDrive for Business.
