DocuSign Inc. has launched a new Web service that allows businesses to transfer documents electronically with a legally binding e-signature.

The DocuSign online signing service requires no integration, and documents are supported from any Windows application.

DocuSign complies with requirements of the federal ESIGN legislation (Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce act), which gives electronic documents and signatures the same legal standing as paper documents and ink signatures.

Users send for electronic signature and print into a DocuSign Envelope using a process similar to a standard print driver. They then place “Stick-eTabs” wherever the recipient’s signature or initials are needed. When the document is sent, the contents are encrypted and stored in a secure repository on a central server.

Recipients are then invited via e-mail to authenticate, review and sign the documents using a unique “Electronic Signature Stamp” created just for them. Once everyone has completed signing, all parties have the option to print a master copy for their records, download a signed copy for local storage, or archive the executed document for secure long-term storage.
