Partnership will provide 'easy and secure' document e-signatures

M-Files has announced the integration of Adobe Sign, the market-leading e-signature solution in Adobe Document Cloud, with the M-Files intelligent information management platform.

E-signatures provide an efficient, legal way to obtain consent or approval on electronic documents and forms, and they can replace handwritten signatures in virtually any process. In paper-based processes, both parties must print, sign and scan a document, or otherwise travel and meet for physical "wet ink" signatures, an unnecessary and time-consuming inconvenience. M-Files provides unique, in-context access to documents from any source within an organisation, and now they can be electronically signed with Adobe Sign. More than 8 billion electronic and digital signature transactions were processed through Adobe Sign and Adobe Document Cloud in the past year. M-Files users can request e-signatures from within any M-Files process, including with M-Files mobile apps and from within integrations in popular applications, such as Microsoft Teams, Salesforce and Google Workplace.

Using e-signing in M-Files provides ample opportunities to improve customer satisfaction, efficiency and compliance. Enterprises can significantly improve customer experience in sales and purchasing, as well as in contract or client management, strengthening competitiveness and enriching their reputation as innovators. Document-heavy industries such as professional services, including legal and consulting services, benefit from faster, more efficient processes while not sacrificing compliance. The same applies for all internal processes that require legally binding signatures, such as quality control and auditing.

"Legally binding electronic signatures are a requirement for business in the future, particularly with the demands of the new work environment where remote work is a requirement," said Greg Milliken, senior vice president of strategic alliances at M-Files. "With billions of transactions from millions of signers around the globe, Adobe is a true leader in the field, and we're excited about this new alliance and the capabilities that Adobe Sign will bring to our customers."

"We look forward to working with M-Files to replace outdated paper-based, manual signature processes with modern, digital signing experiences," said Chris Whitcomb, director of worldwide business development at Adobe. "With Adobe Sign, M-Files customers will be able to get critical documents signed quickly, easily, and securely, which is critical to remote work today."
