This is a guest post by DocuSign, a partner in the Dreamforce ’11 Hackathon
This is 2011. The world is supposed to be instant, paperless, secure, and green. So why are people still printing stuff out and faxing? DocuSign is on a mission to change the world into a place where things get signed instantly, without the hassle of pens, paper, mailing, or faxing. The way it should be, right?
The app we are looking for will be a creative use of the DocuSign signature service to solve a real world problem in a convenient way. It has to be easy, and actually help people make their lives faster and more secure.
How can electronic signatures be used to speed up pledge drives? Can they help a diabetic send glucose readings securely to a doctor? Can you think of a smooth way to integrate signatures into an HR platform? What about job offers? Or a way to commit to pay through Craigslist (no one likes flakes)? The sky is the limit. We just want help solving those problems everyone has, but people have gotten used to. Seriously, this is 2011, not 1991.
See you at the hackathon!
