Combined Solution Expedites Contract Sign-offs and Time to Revenue

SAN MATEO, Calif. – Dec. 12, 2007 – SpringCM (www.springcm.com), the leader in on-demand document management and workflow, and EchoSign (www.echosign.com), the leading Web-based signature automation service, today announced a partnership to streamline the internal and external approval cycles for contracts, proposals, statements of work (SOWs) and other project documents. By integrating the EchoSign electronic signature system with the SpringCM Contract Management solution, as well as its Contract Accelerator for Salesforce.com, users are able to route contracts and other key documents through internal and external approvals in a single integrated solution. Information on the combined solution, which is available immediately, is posted at www.springcm.com/contracts or by calling 877-362-7373.

“Contract lifecycle applications add tremendous value to the enterprise, but traditionally have lacked a method to automate contract processing — getting the contracts signed, tracked and filed,” said Jason Lemkin, CEO of EchoSign. “With SpringCM, we’ve brought the two best-of-breed leaders together to automate the entire contracting process and bring even greater value to both SpringCM’s and EchoSign’s customers.”
The SpringCM solution manages all aspects of document management, routing and approval for contracts, proposals and other documents used by sales, legal and finance departments. SpringCM is fully integrated with CRM systems such as salesforce.com.

EchoSign enables users to instantly get contracts and other documents signed electronically from any browser, anywhere, without the burden of waiting for paperwork returned through fax machines or overnight mail. EchoSign, offering both a stand-alone Web-based product and one seamlessly integrated with salesforce.com, closes over $100M in contracts every month with an average “quote to close time” of 42 minutes. Sending a document out for signature is as easy as selecting the document in SpringCM and picking the “Send for Signature” option, which presents the recipient with clear and easy-to-understand e-mail instructions on how to sign the document by typing their name and initials and clicking “Sign.” The document is then automatically inserted into the secure SpringCM repository in its signed form.

Dan Carmel, CEO of SpringCM added, “This partnership is very beneficial to our customers because the key to addressing contract and proposal management bottlenecks is automating internal and external approvals. By integrating electronic signatures, document management and process automation together, SpringCM and EchoSign provide a sophisticated end-to-end solution for complex contract automation.”
