Northbrook, IL, February 25, 2015 — Beacon Funding is pleased to announce the inclusion of DocuSign, the top-rated electronic signature technology and service, to its lease documentation process. Utilizing DocuSign allows Beacon and its clients to send and receive documents and signatures in just minutes.
“The end user’s satisfaction with the transaction is the most important aspect of any deal,” said Jon Baratta, IT Project Manager for Beacon Funding. “DocuSign allows us to churn out legally binding documents in a matter of minutes to provide our customers their new equipment as soon as possible.”
The increased need for quick leasing has combined with rising demand from a digitally focused consumer base, resulting in more contracts being signed away from the office. Beacon’s clients and partners are constantly on-the-go or on-the-road, so any service that can keep up with their busy schedules is a worthwhile endeavor. Crucial, time sensitive deals, like title leases, can be completed ahead of time. Simple processes for verification can be automated through DocuSign, allowing users access to responses on a timely basis.
While being convenient, this new, quicker process for managing and signing documents is also completely secure. Files are more secure through this new electronic signature solution, because the signee must pass through an authentication process. This means that only authorized recipients are able to sign a document, greatly reducing the possibility for forgery. Additionally, DocuSign is the only electronic-signature company to be ISO 27001 certified — the highest level of global information security assurance available today.
Beacon is also making use of DocuSign’s diverse administrative tools. Admins will now be able to set permissions-based security levels to control who is allowed to see or sign each document. For example, say Beacon needs to get embroidery equipment financing paperwork to a client. The viewer receiving that paperwork is required to have permission set by the lease administrator through the software before they see it, and so does the sender. Beacon is dedicated to keeping its customers’ private business information private.
