Get Those Contracts Signed with DocuSign and SugarCRM Integration

Previously on our blog, we have discussed the value of integrating PandaDocs with Sugar and compared PandaDocs to Flexidocs, but what about DocuSign? Just like its name, DocuSign is your ideal source for getting your documents signed online by your prospects. Signature requests can be sent through DocuSign online, and your sales team does not have to worry about wasting time doing it in person! However, DocuSign differs slightly from PandaDocs and Flexidocs. Platforms like PandaDocs and Flexidocs are more focused on the documents itself, so they provide drag-and-drop content blocks for templates, online collaboration and approval features, and have auto-fill fields that are derived from SugarCRM. On the other hand, platforms like DocuSign have one primary objective, and that is to get things signed. DocuSign is actually one of the main e-signing platforms for Flexidocs. It can too be integrated with SugarCRM to help you do business faster.

Why Integrate DocuSign with SugarCRM?

For platforms without their own e-signing function, DocuSign helps your sales team keep track of all the documents waiting to be signed. But the most exciting factor is that this is all completed within Sugar itself, no external sites required. Let’s take a closer look at why DocuSign is worthwhile to use in SugarCRM.

Features of DocuSign

How Is This Helpful?

    • Monitor all created documents, documents waiting to be signed, and completed documents.
  • Receive real-time updates and alerts of document progress through the Activity Stream within Sugar.
    • Through Sugar’s cloud format, your sales team can see who has taken action to reach out to a client. No in-person conversation or emailing necessary.
    • It helps salespeople remind prospects to sign the document or possibly identify other buyer concerns when a document sits dormant for too long.
  • It keeps salespeople motivated by monitoring the documents they need to complete/have signed.
  • Drag-and-drop fields can be added to the document before it is sent to the contact.
    • Utilizing these drag-and-drop fields prevents prospects from having to print out the document, then sign it, then scan/fax it back to you.
    • It eliminates extra steps and makes closing the deal faster.
    • Fields can be added to the document to pull data from the contacts you are sending it to in SugarCRM (e.g., first name, last name).
  • Drag-and-drop fields are accessible on other devices such as mobile or tablet formats.
  • Configure usage of DocuSign.
    • Either have one DocuSign account for all or individual DocuSign accounts.
  • Send documents through one large company-wide account or limit it to the individual salespeople.
  • Utilize DocuSign SugarCRM dashlets to monitor progress.
    • Information regarding envelopes (e.g., the documents created, sent, and completed) is provided in a convenient bar or table chart on the right-side of SugarCRM.
  • See how documents are performing off-hand and in a more visual manner.
  • PDF conversion and automatic logging of documents that have been signed.
    • Documents that are sent to a prospect are automatically converted to a PDF file format to prevent any editing of the original document.
    • Once the document is signed, the fields can no longer be changed and are fixed in the PDF format.
  • All final signed documents are logged within Sugar and can be re-downloaded for the salesperson’s reference.
