SignEasy crosses the 1.5 million download mark and adds some cool new features
SignEasy has been buzzing with updates. Ever since they launched their BB10 app, they’ve released a bunch of new updates, achieved some important milestones and most recently, they’re a part of the Microsoft Accelerator’s winter batch for 2013.
I caught up with founder Sunil Patro a few days back to understand these updates a little better. SignEasy, for those who don’t know, is an app that allows you to sign a digital document. This immensely useful app for corporates who’re always on the go, has been downloaded over 1.5 million times and sees about a million documents signed every year. It is also used across a 100 countries. More about these amazing accomplishments in this blog.
This feat has taken SignEasy 3 full years and can well be considered as one of India’s few app successes from a revenue generating perspective. In this time, the app has gone through quite a metamorphosis and the team has been constantly been adding updates after updates. Here are two more recent ones -
Cloud storage integration
Unlike other apps, SignEasy initially started with support for Box, owing to it’s earlier association with Box.net OneCloud program. In addition to Box, SignEasy has now bought Google Drive, Dropbox and Evernote support to its Android App. Users can import, sign and save important documents to their preferred cloud storage service.
This is a service is very seamless for a premium account holder, where users can access these cloud storage options form within the app itself. Basic account holders on the other hand should go to the desired cloud service App, select a document and choose SignEasy through the ‘Open In’ functionality.
Local language support
SignEasy is used in over 100 different countries and Sunil shared that one of the key constraints that they faced with the app was it’s inability to save a file name in their local language. Owing to this, SignEasy recently also added local language support on the app.
SignEasy users can import their files in Spanish, Russian, Chinese, Korean, Japanese, and even Arabic and Hebrew which are read and written from right to left.
SignEasy is quite a mature app and is adding meaningful features month on month. It will be interesting to hear more from them at the Microsoft Accelerator
