FBS is integrating DocuSign into flexmls Forms!

Nov 11, 2009  |  Michael Wurzer

I’m pleased as punch to announce that FBS is integrating DocuSign into our flexmls Forms product.  Here’s the press release from DocuSign.  We expect the new features to be available to our Forms users by the end of the year, if not earlier.

If you’re not familiar with DocuSign, it is a web-based system for getting electronic signatures on your contracts.  But, it’s not just about electronic signatures.  DocuSign has some very powerful workflow functions built into it that just make it easier to get deals signed.

I first started looking into DocuSign when I saw agents I follow on Twitter say great things about it. (that link is more recent, but I couldn’t find the older ones that piqued my interest).  Once I started working with Dave Thorpe at DocuSign, one of the first steps in moving ahead was signing an NDA.  Of course, Dave sent me the contract using DocuSign and the agreement was reviewed, signed and archived in matter of minutes.  I was convinced from that moment that this would be a great addition to our flexmls Forms offering.

Right now, we’re busy mapping out the signature and initial locations on all our forms so they’ll be ready to go at launch.  Sending the documents out will happen right through the flexmls Forms system just as you’re able to email them now.  The difference will be that your customer will now get to review and sign the contracts using DocuSign and we’ll be able to monitor and update the status of the transaction right through your flexmls Forms folders.  This way, you’ll always know who has signed and who is left to sign the documents to finalize them.

We hope our Forms customers are excited about this as we are.  Let us know if you have any questions.

  5. Will there be a feature which will allow us to highlight where the client needs to sign? that would be a great feature!

    Will we have access to the Oregon Real Estate forms on your site? Currently the Oregon online forms don’t work on Firefox or Apple.

  7. mwurzer says:

    The Oregon forms under exclusively licensed through the system provided by the state Association, and so we cannot currently provide forms to your MLS.

    Just read the remarks from Nov 2009 – we in the Alexandria MN area LUV flex – way above the Matrix-Northstar system. Anyway – you refer to the end of the year for Docusign- assuming you mean end of 2010?

  9. mwurzer says:

    Hi, Suzy, thanks for the comment. Unfortunately, we did mean the end of 2009, but the integration hasn’t gone as planned. We’re now targeting release in early June and that will depend on resolution of an issue we’re having with accurate placement of the signature tabs. We expect that to be resolved soon and then we’ll conduct some beta testing, and hopefully then get it out the door. Sorry for the wait!

  10. Suzy Lee says:

    Well the Docusign is exciting and will be worth the wait. And we love having the forms online. Thanks for all you do!

    Is tarmls.com going to be a betasite? What is the difference between signing directly up with docusign for under a buck a day and you integrating it?

    I assume it will be far cheaper and less involved to setup initially.

  12. mwurzer says:

    Tucson isn’t yet using our Forms application, and the Docusign integration only applies to flexmls Forms customers.

    For others following this thread, we’ve been delayed in getting this finalized, but the integration is now in beta testing and should be released live soon.
