About This Partner

eSignLive video SoftLayerIBM and eSignLive share a vision of digital transformation. We’ve been working together since 2006 to help business and government digitize their processes.

eSignLive is IBM’s e-signature partner. E-Signatures enable a true digital business process by removing a key obstacle – the need for paper to obtain a signature – so transactions can be completed immediately, on any device.

Many eSignLive customers use IBM technologies, services and infrastructure to run their digital transactions. That may be on the IBM Cloud, or on-premises with IBM technologies such as DB2 and WebSphere. Customers also have the ability to sign, index, archive and receive electronic documents using IBM Enterprise Content Management solutions such as FileNet on the cloud or on-premises.

Around the world, 96% of new eSignLive customers are turning to the cloud. Through a strategic relationship with IBM Cloud, eSignLive leverages IBM’s network of global data centers to enable customers to scale operations quickly and meet local data residency requirements. eSignLive runs on public and private cloud instances in Canada, Australia, the UK and Germany – with Japan, Singapore and Brazil to follow throughout the year.
