As one of the fastest-growing e-signature and process automation solutions in the world, Adobe Sign is designed to help organizations speed up business and plug into world-class third-party applications that deliver seamless customer experiences. Today, we’ve rolled out new enhancements for life sciences and pharmaceutical companies, added more forms automation functionality by including a new way to collect online payments, furthered integrations with human resources and announced new cloud-based digital signature partners. Here are all the details:
Life sciences compliance
There are very few industries more important to a person’s wellbeing than life sciences and pharmaceuticals. These highly-regulated industries have some of the most stringent demands when it comes to digital processes, and were early adopters of electronic signatures. However, until now, compliance requirements in this sector have made it difficult for these companies to adopt the best of today’s new web and mobile technologies to digitally streamline processes like patient consent, clinical trial enrollment, recall notifications, drug applications, supplier contracts and more.
Now, life sciences and pharmaceutical companies using Adobe Sign can easily and confidently apply the necessary controls to comply with FDA 21 CFR Part 11, the globally-accepted regulation for electronic records and signatures in the biopharma industry, through multi-factor e- signature authentication or the more rigorous certificate-based digital signature authentication. New Adobe Sign capabilities include verifying signer’s identity at the time of signing and requiring the signer to specify a reason for signing, both of which are requirements specified by FDA 21 CFR Part 11. In addition, through our partnership with industry leading trust service providers such as Trans Sped, organizations are able to sign documents which meet the SAFE-BioPharma trust requirements.

Payments incorporated into forms** **
As digital payment services transform e-commerce, businesses are looking to improve engagement by integrating payment collection and data collection in their customer experiences. It often takes multiple steps to fill, sign, pay and send forms – like sales contracts, invoices, new account applications, charitable donations and online order forms – which ultimately makes for a disappointing experience for everyone. Businesses need a pain free process so that forms flow faster and customers are delighted.
Adobe has partnered with leading payment gateway provider Braintree, a PayPal service, so that Adobe Sign and Braintree customers can easily and securely collect payments from customers as they fill and sign forms. Braintree supports 130-plus currencies and provides merchant services in 44 countries so transactions can be completed on any device across the globe.

Cloud-based digital signature momentum** **
Adobe’s leadership with cloud-based digital signatures, working closely with the Cloud Signature Consortium, continues to expand.
In the near future, Adobe Sign will work with new certificate digital ID providers, including: Asseco Data Systems, ATOS Worldline, BankID Sweden, Certinomis, GlobalSign, Swisscom, and UniverSign. With BankID, people in Sweden can now sign securely using their existing identity issued by their bank. We are also excited about expanding to Japan with the support of Seiko.
With the growth of this list of providers, we are also adding new administrative controls to Adobe Sign so you can preselect exactly which digital ID providers are acceptable for your specific business processes.
