Seamless cloud and mobile digital signature experience

Digital signature solutions have historically sacrificed convenience and product capability in favor of compliance, often requiring desktop applications, software downloads and plug-ins. DocuSign Standards-Based Signatures deliver the best of both worlds—the best customer experience and highest return on your investment.

Standards-Based Signatures enable you to automate and manage cloud and mobile digital processes using DocuSign’s powerful business capabilities—all while staying compliant with local eSignature standards. DocuSign offers cloud-based digital certificates to your signers real-time at the time of signing, improving signer experience while reducing the IT complexity and cost associated with in-house digital certificate management.

Standards-based digital signatures

Compliant with local and industry eSignature standards

DocuSign Standards-Based Signatures enable you to automate and manage entire digital workflows using DocuSign’s powerful agreement workflow capabilities that are compliant with local and industry eSignature standards, like 21 CFR Part 11.

In the EU, DocuSign delivers all of the signature types defined under the eIDAS regulation, including EU Advanced and EU Qualified electronic signatures. These Standards-Based Signatures were launched as part of DocuSign’s “Invest for Europe” initiative (along with three EU data centers), in order to empower European organizations to make the digital transformation with trust and confidence today.

Identity management program partners

Sign using identities and digital certificates that work for your business

A critical component of Standards-Based Signatures is the way you identify your signers. DocuSign has architected Standards-Based Signatures to support the signer identity preferences of your business. We don’t dictate the model you need to use; we adapt to the model that works best for you.

DocuSign provides a choice of native and third-party identity management services through DocuSign’s Trust Service Provider Partner (“TSP”) Program, which includes multiple providers in the EU, including IBM Intesa, Firmaprofesional, Athens Exchange, IDNow, QuickSign, Swisscom and others. The TSP program brings companies that specialize in electronic ID and trust services into a European ecosystem to provide the full range of eIDAS-defined signature types through the DocuSign platform.
