We've removed paper entirely from the process and built tools to facilitate document signing, tracking and management.

Once completed, signed documents are securely stored and accessible from the cloud so you can always get to your important documents.
Adobe Sign vs HelloSign in our news:
2019 - Dropbox aquired e-signature service HelloSign
Dropbox is to acquire for $230 million HelloSign, a company that provides lightweight document workflow and eSignature services. This can also been seen in the context of the Extension capability that Dropbox added last year. HelloSign was actually one of the companies involved at launch. While Clark says the company will continue to encourage companies to extend the Dropbox solution, today’s acquisition gives it a capability of its own that doesn’t require a partnership and already is connected to Dropbox via Extensions. Dropbox is going to remain HelloSign as a standalone business within the Dropbox family.
2015 - Adobe launches Document Cloud for Acrobat and EchoSign to defeate HelloSign
Adobe is launching its third cloud (after Creative Cloud and Marketing Cloud) - Adobe Document Cloud. At the center of this is Acrobat DC, a new version of Acrobat for the desktop, web and mobile that will include free e-signing tools based on Adobe EchoSign and quite a bit of smart image-handling and OCR technology. The company is also launching a new mobile app called Fill and Sign as well as a new Acrobat enterprise solution with additional advanced features like fine-grained permission controls and third-party integrations. The new apps let users easily create and edit PDFs from their device. For example user can take a photo of a document with a phone and automatically turn it into a PDF. The idea here is to create a unified experiences across all platforms, with e-signing as one of the key features.
2011 - Adobe acquires electronic signature company EchoSign
Adobe has acquired EchoSign, a web-based provider of electronic signatures and signature automation, for an undisclosed amount. The company plans to add EchoSign's electronic signature technology to its document exchange services platform, to reduce the time, cost, and complexity associated with having a document signed, the company said. Adobe plans to discontinue as a result of the acquisition a cloud-based electronic signature service, called eSignatures or eSign, that it released in May last year. The service is currently in beta and will be targeted for end-of-life.
