PALO ALTO, Calif., Feb. 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- EchoSign, the web-based provider of electronic signatures, announced today it has been selected by salesforce.com customers for an AppExchange Best of 2010 Award. In receiving this customer choice award for contract management, EchoSign received recognition for its ability to take customer success, satisfaction and application excellence to new levels. Built using the Force.com platform, EchoSign is immediately available for test drive and deployment on the AppExchange, the world's most-popular marketplace for business apps, at http://www.salesforce.com/appexchange/.
EchoSign supports more than three million users worldwide to help them collaborate, negotiate, share contracts and esign documents in the cloud. EchoSign lets customers run their business on the web by boosting productivity, shortening the sales cycle and helping close more deals in the cloud.
"A generational shift is occurring, and the web is changing the way people send contracts for the first time in decades, much the way sharing videos, music, books and photos have been utterly transformed by the web," said Jason Lemkin, CEO of EchoSign. "Bringing contracts to the web and working with salesforce.com is enabling this shift and helping businesses see instant ROI by making it easier to conduct business daily in the cloud."
"Salesforce.com customers can use the AppExchange to find new apps to drive productivity in their organizations," said Kendall Collins, chief marketing officer at salesforce.com. "With EchoSign, Salesforce users can now take advantage of customizable drag-and-drop form fields and signature blocks, the ability to preview documents before sending for signature and customizable alerts. We congratulate EchoSign for being recognized by customers as the top-ranked Contract Management application on AppExchange in 2010."
The Contract Management category, one of 11 separate categories, recognizes applications which streamline common sales operations processes like signature collection and document creation. The "Best of" customer choice awards recognize AppExchange partners who have had excellent user reviews in a specific calendar year. They are awarded based on user-contributed reviews and do not reflect the opinions of salesforce.com, its employees or partners.
