According to a recent report, DocuSign (NASDAQ: DOCU) is the leader in the e-signature market with more than 70% of the global digital signature and document services market.

DocuSign’s Growth

During the quarter, DocuSign announced the expansion of the agreement cloud with its new AI solution called DocuSign Analyzer. The Analyzer is an extension of DocuSign Insight that simplifies the process of reviewing and negotiating agreements when they are first received. It uses AI to give legal, sales, procurement, and other stakeholders clear insight into the possible risks and opportunities in the documents being signed, helping them in negotiating better terms. Analyzer breaks down the agreement into separate clauses, which it recognizes using a combination of AI technologies. It proceeds to conduct a risk assessment based on the company’s legal and business standards and then gives those results in scorecards that are available in Microsoft Word, Microsoft Outlook, and its own CLM solution. The extension also simplifies the editing solution, by giving a one-click access to suggested replacement language from its collection of preapproved clauses.
