I wanted to take a moment to thank you all for your efforts in our form on to DocuSign. I review scores of these form each week—and each requires about 5 signatures on average. Putting the form on Docusign will dramatically reduce the time it takes to move a new, updated, or renewed form through our system and to put it in place. It will also save a great deal of paper and do away with our search for form's signing status. This will make a significant difference for our team, and all of the teams we work with.
- Executive Director
DocuSign is a great tool for us to have, and I appreciate the work you and others did to bring this to fruition. We have several forms in our department that would benefit from using DocuSign to route, for sure.
- Administrator
Thank you, and happy to work with you on [DocuSign]. I appreciate your leadership on these issues. I appreciate your efforts and the simpler workflow processes.
- Dean

Electronic Signatures

Quality Assurance has facilitated campus adoption and implementation of DocuSign, an electronic signatures solution tool.

The use of electronic signatures has streamlined campus processes, enhanced security and compliance, and provided a sustainable way to conduct University business.

Policies
