(Atlanta –April 15, 2015)– Electronic signature company, AssureSign, today announced the acquisition of Third Party Verification, Inc. (3PV), an industry leader in third party verification (TPV) software, making AssureSign the first electronic signature software provider to offer verbal signature services. 3PV’s technology is currently used by telecommunications, utilities, service and insurance providers to secure verbal authorizations for transactions. The move accelerates AssureSign’s expansion of its services and its technology infrastructure as a response to increased business and customer demand for electronic and verbal signature capabilities.
“We’re seeing a rise in customer requests for voice authorizations since they speed up transactions and are legally binding, just like other forms of signature,” said David Brinkman, president and CEO of AssureSign. “The integration of 3PV will enhance AssureSign’s suite of services, and will provide our customers with more options for executing business deals quickly and securely.”
Also announced today, AssureSign will move its company headquarters from Orlando to Atlanta, with the relocation to be complete within the next 60 days. The company also plans to expand its total workforce by 50 percent by the first quarter of 2016. In the near term, AssureSign intends to onboard at least 10 new hires in sales, development and customer support by the end of the second quarter.
“Our move to Atlanta is talent-driven. We’re looking to access the region’s top technologists and sales professionals as well as Atlanta’s overall entrepreneurial climate,” said Brinkman. “Our company is entering a growth phase as electronic signature capability is no longer an enterprise luxury, but instead is a basic business need. The market opportunity for e-signatures is tremendous, and AssureSign wants top talent as we gain market share.”
