DocuSign Replaces Adobe Reader with Foxit’s Best-in-Class PDF Reader to Offer Better User Experience
SAN FRANCISCO - September 6, 2012 - DocuSign, the global standard in eSignature®, and Foxit®, a leading software provider of solutions for reading, editing, creating, organizing and securing PDF documents, today announced the integration of Foxit as part of the DocuSign eSignature solution. In addition, Foxit will distribute DocuSign’s service worldwide as an integrated capability of Foxit Reader and PhantomPDF. This easy-to-use integration helps Foxit users quickly and securely sign and send documents using the world’s most widely used eSignature solution - while creating an even better experience for DocuSign users.
“Our agreement with Foxit further solidifies DocuSign as the global standard for eSignature and gives users around the world a more powerful way to sign documents,” said Keith Krach, chairman and CEO of DocuSign. “We also made the decision to replace Adobe Reader with Foxit Reader in DocuSign’s eSignature Transaction Management platform to benefit our more than 20 million customers who use DocuSign every day to sign more than 150,000 documents.”
“We are thrilled DocuSign has made Foxit part of its industry-leading eSignature platform,” said Eugene Xiong, CEO of Foxit Corporation. “Foxit’s 130 million plus customers worldwide can now DocuSign directly from Foxit Reader and PhantomPDF with the click of a button, bringing tremendous value and convenience to Foxit users everywhere.”
Foxit users can now easily sign and send documents for signature directly from Foxit with DocuSign by instantly creating a new DocuSign account or signing into their existing DocuSign account. Signing is always free, and the first five documents a user sends for signature are complimentary, after which subscription plans start as low as $15 per month for individual professionals with plans available for businesses of every size.
DocuSign is integrating with Foxit to create an even better user experience:
Foxit has received many strong reviews from users and leading publications like PC World and PC Magazine
