Seattle, January 23, 2008 - DocuSign, the leading Web-based electronic signature service, today announced that Allied Solutions, a leading reseller of financial services to credit unions and banks, will integrate DocuSign's eSignature service into Allied Solutions' wide variety of products and services. Allied Solutions selected DocuSign's enterprise-class eSignature platform because of the breadth and superiority of the DocuSign offering.
"Staying at the forefront of technological innovation has become a key to success in the credit union market today.

DocuSign's eSignature service, having delivered over six million eSignature events, will allow our members to quickly and easily service customers better, close new business and grow revenue."
