As founder and "chief strategy officer" of DocuSign, Tom Gonser is constantly talking to customers, analysts and partners about how DocuSign can help them tackle the challenges posed by paper-based processes.
"I spend my time thinking two or three steps ahead of where we actually are, by considering what the ongoing advancements will have on the ways we work and communicate, then put myself in that future position and imagine the potential new needs and challenges we will face at that point," Gonser says. "I call this living in the ‘most likely future,’ and it helps us build towards where things are likely to go."
From the day I got my first iPad, my goal has been to have every real estate transaction be paperless, and to be able to write offers from anywhere.
When I started down that path in 2010, it was an enormous amount of work to cobble apps together and test each one to make sure they would work with each other. It’s much easier today, but there’s plenty of room for improvement.
Now that our MLS is using Instanet forms with Authentisign, I no longer have to convert blank forms into PDF files and send them to DropBox or Evernote so that I can access them from anywhere.
