Manage Your Signed Documents with the DocuXplorer x DocuSign Integration

There was a time in the not-so-distant past when contracts and other agreements had to be manually printed and signed. In 2021, many businesses use eSignature software to speed up their agreement processes. DocuXplorer has partnered with DocuSign to integrate eSignature features for our users.

eSignatures were the solution to these issues, paving the way for the complete digital transformation of signature collection, management, and archiving processes. If your company handles large numbers of signed documents, an eSignature software may be the perfect complement to your document management system.

Securely manage and archive DocuSign agreements using DocuXplorer.

If your business already uses DocuSign for digital signatures, you’re in good company. Over 750,000 companies trust DocuSign with their esignature needs. But once a DocuSign envelope is completed, how do you find it again? DocuSign’s folder system can quickly grow out of control if you process thousands of signed documents.

DocuXplorer is the document management system (DMS) that helps you manage and navigate your DocuSign envelopes. With DocuXplorer, you can link any DocuSign envelope with related business records or transactions and quickly locate them today or years from now.

Top 5 Reasons to Store Signed Agreements in a DMS:

Here’s why you should be using a document management system, like DocuXplorer, to manage your signed agreements:

  1. Never have issues finding a signed document again: Locate any agreement using metadata. Using custom fields, you can write, read, manage, and search through metadata related to envelopes, recipients, and documents to allow you to classify and organize your documents so you can easily find them again with a quick search.

  2. Integrate signed documents into your business processes: Trigger post-signature processes such as invoicing, account provisioning, or onboarding. You can securely move your signed files on to the next step in the process with the click of a button, minimizing delays and ensuring that your files are a part of an organized DMS ecosystem.

  3. Set security settings and permissions: Use secure encryption to ensure that only those with credentials can view executed contracts. Confidential agreements and documents will never be accessed by unauthorized users.

  4. Record all actions: Timestamp all views and actions taken on a contract with a detailed audit trail. As your documents and agreements are signed, you will have a complete record of the file’s journey through each step in the process.

  5. Never lose a signed document again: Guarantee your contracts are always there with backups. Digitalization of your signed documents through a DMS creates an easily searchable, lasting digital record of your agreements.
