Box Spotlighted as a Major Player in Worldwide eSignature Software Vendor Assessment

In the IDC report, Box was recognized “as one of the first multitenant SaaS vendors to offer a cloud content management solution” delivering “continuous innovation and continuous deployment of content life-cycle capabilities in addition to its feature-rich collaboration and file sharing.”

“Box has become a critical business partner for organizations looking to digitize their business processes and navigate the shift to hybrid work. That’s why we entered the e-signature market and developed Box Sign natively into Box to help businesses streamline digital transactions,” said Diego Dugatkin, Chief Product Officer at Box. “With the addition of Box Sign, customers can now manage the entire content lifecycle in the Box Content Cloud, from the moment a file is created to when it’s shared, edited, published, approved, signed, classified, and retained.”

According to the IDC MarketScape, “The contribution of e-signature technology to business continuity became glaringly evident during the COVID-19 pandemic. Gaps were exposed in organizations without end-to-end digitally transformed business processes.”

In February, Box acquired SignRequest, a leading cloud-based electronic signature company, and developed Box Sign on its industry-leading technology. Natively integrated into Box, this new capability, which began rolling out to customers in July, reduces business costs for third-party e-signature tools while enhancing team and individual productivity.

Box Sign features include:

–Ability to send documents for e-signature directly from Box to anyone, including those without a Box account, making for a seamless sender and signer experience.
–Secure and compliant signatures since Box Sign inherits Box’s security and compliance profile including HIPAA, SOC, ISO, FedRAMP, and more.
–New Box Sign capabilities in the Box for Salesforce integration, which allow customers to generate and send NDAs, contracts, and more directly from within Salesforce.
–Access to a world-class developer experience including a robust set of Box Sign APIs, rich documentation, and ‘Get Started’ guides.

The IDC MarketScape report highlights Box’s ease of use, its broad portfolio of content services, continuous innovation, and states that “For those organizations that are evaluating Box as their primary content services platform, the addition of Box Sign at no additional cost for customers on Business and Enterprise plans and the ability to leverage other Box capabilities and products within signing workflows should prove to be an attractive feature.”

More than 100,000 businesses already leverage the Box Content Cloud to securely power the way they work, and now business customers with Box Sign can execute unlimited e-signatures where their content already lives at no additional cost. Box Sign is expected to be available later this month to all customers in the U.S. and Canada and will continue rolling out globally in the coming months.
