Cloud

DocuSign, Inc. (NASDAQ: DOCU), which offers the world's #1 eSignature solution as part of the DocuSign Agreement Cloud, today announced results for its fiscal quarter ended July 31, 2020.

"In an accelerating digital world where business can be conducted from anywhere, the need to agree electronically and remotely has never been stronger, as shown in our 61% year-over-year billings growth," said Dan Springer , CEO of DocuSign. "We are just scratching the surface of our Agreement Cloud opportunity and believe we are increasingly becoming an essential cloud-software platform for organizations of all sizes."

Operational and Other Financial Highlights

  • DocuSign Agreement Cloud 2020 Product Release 2. DocuSign introduced several new features and enhancements in the latest release to support customers in their digital transformations: DocuSign eSignature for Workplace from Facebook, which allows access to DocuSign eSignature via a chatbot within Facebook from Work; Workflow Templates for DocuSign CLM, which allows business users to quickly configure common contract processes such as approvals, signature, and routing; and enhancements to DocuSign ID Verification and DocuSign Click.
  • Liveoak Technologies Acquisition. On July 7, 2020, DocuSign announced its acquisition of Liveoak Technologies, Inc. in an all-stock transaction. For agreements that would normally require people to be physically present together, Liveoak enables the transaction to be done remotely via videoconferencing. The company's platform includes several other technologies specific to remote agreements, such as video identity verification, collaborative form-filling, an integration with DocuSign eSignature, and a detailed audit trail. DocuSign plans to leverage Liveoak's technology and expertise to accelerate the launch of DocuSign Notary, a new product for remote online notarization, where signers and the notary public are in different places. The beta release of DocuSign Notary is currently slated for November 2020.
  • CTO appointment. On August 25, 2020, DocuSign announced Kamal Hathi as its new chief technology officer (CTO). Prior to joining DocuSign, Kamal was chief product and technology officer at Trader Interactive, a leading provider of online marketplaces and products serving the lifestyle vehicles and commercial equipment sector. Before that he spent more than two decades at Microsoft, most recently as GM for its SaaS analytics and business intelligence solution, Power BI. As CTO, Kamal will oversee the development and execution of DocuSign's technology roadmap, including the expansion of the DocuSign Agreement Cloud.
