Recently, K2 has built an integration to offer customers a solution where digital signatures meet process applications to deliver end-to-end digital transactional processes to any device.

Partnership K2 and DocuSign

Many of the content-centric processes customers automate with K2 are more valuable with digital signatures added. Normally, digital signature technologies and business process automation solutions are siloed. Therefore, both K2 and DocuSign made the decision to bring them together in a much more useful way.

According to Dave Marcus, Senior Vice President of Alliances at K2, enterprises will need to control the e-signature process for uniformity of records and legal confidence. As a result, the enterprise e-signature market will become less about obtaining the signature and more about controlling and automating the signature process. Enterprises will request customized offerings to automatie workflow and records routing.

Customers want exactly the same thing, according to Marcus. ‘DocuSign is a leader in the digital signature space and K2 is a leader in the business process applications space. This partnership made perfect sense for both companies and our customers’ benefit.’

The benefits for customers

Thanks to the integration between K2 and DocuSign, customers can focus on the process knowing that all aspects, including workflow, forms, signing, auditing and tracking are managed without having to use custom coding.

According to Dave Marcus, many of the K2 processes customers deploy are focused on processing documents, from contracts management, employee or vendor onboarding, and beyond.

Digital signatures, when integrated with K2, enable customers to track, manage and validate content and confirm the process that content went through in a consistent manner.

Customers that have both K2 and DocuSign today can go to the K2 community site and download the integration components. K2 blackpearl customer scan now embed DocuSign’s digital transaction management and digital signatures solutions into their K2 business process applications.

Mobile solutions

K2 and DocuSign both focus on mobile solutions. K2 has already made significant investments in native mobile apps, and K2 Mobile is a core focus for the company. The integration between K2 and DocuSign fully supports the use of DocuSign for mobile.

Apps are the ‘language of business’ today. The concept of ‘bring your own app’ is becoming as important as ‘bring your own device’ has been over the past few years. Customers want the flexibility of easy, quick time to market applications but also want some level op governance to ensure things do not get out of control. K2 and DocuSign help to deliver this vision.

Protection of processes

K2 places a lot of emphasis on security. For K2, it is essential that only the people that are allowed to participate in the process do so. Otherwise, the results can have a negative effect. The integration between K2 and DocuSign supports this need and leverages the best each company has to offer as it applies to securing their part of the process.
