A Brief Overview of How The DocuSign Integration Works For Contract Management
By connecting to DocuSign, you can choose signers when configuring contract approval flows, and once the contract is ready for signature, the DocuSign integration does its job – meaning you get a fully signed and executed contract synced back to your Dock 365 Contract Management System. Your contract management admin simply needs to enable the DocuSign integration to get started. As you build your contract approval flow, you can select who needs to sign the contract once you upload the document. When various approval steps are completed and the document is ready for signature, you can add signature blocks into your document. Then DocuSign will send emails to the signing party or parties. Once the document has been signed by all necessary contributors, the document will be synced to your Dock 365 Contract Management System.
Take a services contract for example. When this contract is being configured with a particular vendor, the automated contract workflow sends the contract through a systematized sequence of preapproved steps ensuring that all obligations, contractual terms, and financial details are effectively overseen during various phases of contract lifecycle management such as contract review, contract negotiation, and contract approval. When reviews, negotiations, and approvals are effectively completed by both parties, then your Contract Management System signals DocuSign for the electronic signature step for the contract at hand. All key details and dates are saved within your centralized contract repository to ensure that you can easily access any information when needed. Your automated contract workflow utilizes DocuSign, where it electronically sends the contract off to the signer.
At this point, the now-signed document is received by your Contract Management System where your contractual stakeholders are sent an automated notification. From here, your flexible automated workflow will continue on with the remaining steps and tasks until the contract is made active. The DocuSign integration with your Dock 365 Contract Management System build overall efficiency and save an abundant amount of time. They do all of this while ensuring that your processes remain in integrity by overseeing a comprehensive record of each step within every stage of the contract lifecycle management process.
