DocuSign in Letters & Science

DocuSign® is the global standard for digital transaction management. It solves paper problems by replacing manual, paper-based methods with DocuSign and other integrated systems. The result is accelerated transactions that increase speed to results, reduce costs, improve visibility, and control. This helps keep University business processes digital by providing the easiest, fastest, and most secure way to send, sign, manage, and store documents in the cloud.

DocuSign, using a campus-wide DocuSign license, is run by the College of Letters & Science Information Technology (LSIT). This system will help the College of Letters & Science improve business process and demonstrate the value of a digital transaction management tool for the campus. External use cases will be accepted to better understand business processes within L&S and to aid in building the architecture to connect DocuSign to campus systems.
