In today’s dynamic business landscape, efficiency and cost reduction are paramount. However, one crucial yet often overlooked aspect is agreement management. Traditional methods, relying on dated tools like word processors and emails, lead to cumbersome and time-consuming processes for drafting, negotiating, and managing agreements, with final documents often ending up as isolated and inaccessible files, what Docusign calls the “Agreement Trap.” The Agreement Trap is a critical flaw that impedes a company’s efficiency and agility, resulting in slow deal closures, missed opportunities, and fragmented information that obstructs decision-making.

These challenges can be addressed by Docusign’s AI-powered, end-to-end agreement management platform (IAM) that is designed to empower businesses of all sizes to forge smarter agreements, streamline their commitment processes, and manage them more effectively to harness their full potential.

SAP customers can seamlessly integrate Docusign into their existing investments tocommit to agreements more quickly and securely, improving the overall experience for customers, partners, and employees; and manage agreements by extracting and leveraging hidden data to unlock value and mitigate unnecessary risks.
