We wanted an API built by a team that valued user experience as much as we do. At the end of the day we chose HelloSign because it was the best combination of these features, price and user experience.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) May 14, 2014
HelloSign, trusted by hundreds of thousands of people to deliver fast and secure eSignature services, today announced the release of its new Application Program Interface (API). Businesses run on core infrastructure APIs, like online payment processing, telecom and web servers – each powered by great companies like Stripe, Twilio and Amazon. When it comes to business processes, signatures are also core infrastructure. Yet, most documents are still signed on paper, breaking online workflows. Now with the new HelloSign API, developers can quickly integrate powerful eSignature infrastructure into their websites and workflows to improve the process of sending, tracking and signing digital documents. It’s the only eSignature API available that offers self service sign up. Information about this new API is available at the HelloSign Developer Center at http://www.hellosign.com/api.
“We knew exactly what we were looking for in an eSignature API. First, it needed to be a clean and modern API. So many of the eSignature APIs available today are antiquated and just wouldn’t work for us. Second, we needed to be able to seamlessly integrate the API into our product to keep the user experience as close to our brand as possible. We wanted an API built by a team that valued user experience as much as we do. At the end of the day we chose HelloSign because it was the best combination of these features, price and user experience,” said Max Mullen, Co-Founder of Instacart.
HelloSign API Features:
An Easy-to-Use eSignature API – HelloSign’s reliable REST based API architecture means fewer moving parts and a leaner request chain for a more reliable service. At launch it offers popular SDKs including Python, Ruby on Rails, PHP and Java with additional languages to follow.
Self-Signup and Free During Development – HelloSign offers a fast and free self-signup process without the hassle of having to contact support or a sales team to get started. A simple certification process includes a streamlined app implementation review process that is typically completed in 48 hours. The HelloSign API is always free during development and offers easy to understand, transparent pricing once your app is ready for release. The HelloSign API is also backed by a 30-day money back guarantee.
Dedicated Support – Developers with questions have the ability to communicate directly with the developers who built the API rather than calling a call center or relying on help from a community forum. Support is available by email and live chat.
A Seamless User Experience – With embedded signing and signature requests your users have the cleanest user experience possible without ever having to jump to another site or app. HelloSign’s API builds this powerful functionality into a developer’s own web app.
Complete Workflow Flexibility - The HelloSign API can be implemented to fit any signature workflow, regardless of complexity, with flexible tools like document templates, signature pages, and text tags. Collecting signatures is easy with options for embedded signing, embedded requesting or by email through HelloSign.com.
“Previously only developers inside large enterprises had the time and money to work with eSignature APIs. Many times developers would have to pay for an enterprise tier of service before getting support from the API provider. That ends today,” said Neal O’Mara, CTO at HelloSign. “Always free during development and available through self signup, the HelloSign eSignature API is engineered to provide the easiest integration experience. It doesn't require contact with a salesperson or support to get started. Instead it is designed to reduce the friction in the development of creative new applications.”
HelloSign provides the core business infrastructure of fast, secure and legally binding eSignatures for businesses and their customers.
