There are many benefits to having integration between your online services and products. Firstly, ease of what you are doing (or trying to do) is greatly enhanced. Secondly, as technology evolves and services overlap more and more, there seems little point in services being so mutually exclusive. This seems to be a notion understood by DocuSign. If you are unfamiliar with DocuSign, then it is what's known as a Digital Transaction Management (DTM) system. As the name of the company suggests, DocuSign allows you to sign documents, but digitally. As a result, documents can be easily processed and then sent to where they need to be and when they need to be. The service offered is a legal one and as such there are no issues with signing digitally, regardless of the content.
If you are the type of user who needs to be able to sign documents on the go or electronically, then you will be pleased to know that DocuSign has today announced the launch of a DTM extension for Chrome. Once installed and integrated, the extension works seamlessly with various well-known services like Gmail, Dropbox and so on, allowing in-program processing. To give you an example, this extension will allow users to open, access and sign documents from within Gmail or Dropbox, instead of having to be redirected to the third party service. If you are a mover and shaker, then this is likely to save you money as well as time. The other added benefit of the integration of DocuSign is that you can set reminders to keep you up to date with the documents you need to sign (or send) without forgetting.
In short, the DocuSign DTM is an ideal way to go (and more importantly, stay) paperless when working online. All files are accessible and ready when you need them, signed when you plan to and sent where they need to go and all without touching a piece of paper. Similar to how other Chrome extensions work (and as you can see in the images below), the service is simple to use once installed. Small icons appear in your frequently used programs, when you have a DocuSign document available (or reminder set). As such, you hit the icon, open the document (in your program), sign it, save it, send it, done.
