DocuSign and Slack on Monday announced a new collaboration that will integrate DocuSign's eSignature tool into Slack's workplace collaboration platform. The integration will allow users to send and sign documents with eSignature directly within the Slack application.
"We are thrilled to partner with Slack to simplify everyday processes for our joint users," said Jerome Levadoux, GVP of Sign at DocuSign. "As remote work becomes prevalent, we are seeing more customers moving away from email in favor of more collaborative tools and channels. Our new eSignature integration makes it easier for teams to get work done by streamlining the process of sending and signing important documents natively in Slack."
With this integration, along with a similar offering on Facebook's Workplace, DocuSign is working its way through the enterprise software chain, embedding its flagship electronic signature service into key collaboration platforms. The company is looking to use these kinds of collaboration platform tie-ins to bolster its momentum with large enterprises and cement its place within the HR, sales and legal markets, where signature-based agreements are increasingly being done remotely.
