Back in November 2011 I lambasted zipLogix (Maker of zipForms6) and Docusign for not having a solution for iPads that seamlessly integrated the two services. (You can read it here if you wish: http://realtytechbytes.com/shame-on-ziplogix-and-docusign)
Recently I revisited creating contracts on the iPad since I was prompted to renew my annual subscription to the zipForms6 mobile edition. ($12.95 per year, currently prorated to $12.45)
Much to my surprise (and delight) Docusign is now integrated into the process. Here is how it works: after you have completed writing a contract in zipForm, just look for Signatures in the tool bar and tap on that. A drop down box appears that gives you the opportunity to select the signing method of your choice. You can use zipLogix Digital Ink®, TouchSign or (drum roll please!) Docusign!
Just above the Docusign selection is the place to enter your Docusign credentials, so be sure to do that first. Then when you select Sign with Docusign, you are given the chance to select the documents that you want signed, the signers and their roles and then off to Docusign it goes.
A new tab opens up in the familiar Docusign interface where you can do all of the usual Docusign activities such as select signers, add roles, change signing order and so on. But, the cherry on top is this…since the integration is so complete, all of the commonly used initial and signature blocks are already in place! (For the most common documents that is, some lesser used ones will still require you to place the appropriate initial and signing blocks.)
You’ll want to verify that everything is as it should be and then hit Send. (Verify that the initial blocks on Liquidated Damages and Arbitration are as your Broker wants them to be for instance).
Your work is done!
Congratulations zipLogix and Docusign…I KNEW that you had this in you! Now, when can we see the same functionality on my iPhone?
