We're excited to announce that the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) has selected Box Sign technology for its native e-signature capability through Systems Engineering Solutions Corporation (SES), a leading IT consulting services firm in Greenbelt, MD. By leveraging Box Sign’s technology along with SES’s solution components, the GSA will power a simple, seamless signing experience for critical business documents, and will digitize the way agreements are managed and governed in the cloud.
GSA, an independent agency of the United States government, helps manage and support the basic functioning of federal agencies by supplying products and communications for U.S. government offices and developing government-wide policies and management tasks. GSA employs 12,000 federal workers and oversees $66 billion of procurement annually.
Contracts and business agreements are critical in the work that GSA oversees, so deploying an e-signature tool is necessary to accelerate processes, lower security and compliance risks, while improving the employee, supplier, and partner experiences. Box Sign technology will enable GSA to:
- Send documents for e-signature to anyone, making for a seamless sender and signer experience.
- Ensure that its agreement management process is secure.
- Empower employees to streamline and speed up the contract signature process with external vendors and partners.
“GSA is leading the way on how government agencies are leveraging modern technology, like e-signature, to digitize paper-based manual workflows for enhanced productivity and security,” said Aaron Levie, CEO and co-founder of Box. “We are proud to have the underlying technology behind Box Sign powering the GSA in its endeavors to bring agility to the way it operates.”
With today’s announcement, GSA joins leading government organizations that have leveraged Box technologies to power new ways of working, including Department of Justice, the District of Columbia Government, NASA, the U.S. Air Force, and the USDA Forest Service and Farm Production and Conservation.
