Dreamforce 2013 Round Up

Dreamforce 2013 was everything I could of imagined and more. All of the hype leading up to this event paid off; the energy was incredible, the advice given by superior digital experts…invaluable, and the fun never seemed to stop. The highlights were many:


Launch of the DocuSign’s new integration for Salesforce1, Salesforce’s new CRM platform.

A groundbreaking update was announced at this year’s Dreamforce conference that enables users to collect information, signatures, and payments on the move.  With DocuSign’s new integration for Salesforce1, Salesforce’s new CRM platform, users can now sign anywhere from any mobile device.


Company CEO Keith Krach said: "DocuSign has long offered the most powerful and easiest-to-use eSignature app in the Salesforce ecosystem. With Salesforce1, DocuSign helps Salesforce users close business even more quickly in the cloud and in-person - extending the value of Salesforce to even more mobile customer scenarios."


Salesforce1 will improve API capabilities, add new mobile apps- one for customers and two for administrators, and give AppExchange partners and independent software vendors further access.


DocuSign, Evernote, Good Technology, and Xactly’s After-After-Party

DocuSign’s After-After party was nothing short of epic. After the Dreamforce gala was over, our customers, prospects, partners, and others headed across King Street to Lucky Strike, where we held our After-After party.  It was a fabulous opportunity for us to celebrate our collective success at Dreamforce and beyond, and a whole lot of fun too! Did you try our Signature drinks? 


Dreamforce Dev Zone

With sessions about learning how to use technologies such as Push Major and LMA to construct your test data and how the integration of Salesforce can closes deals more efficiently in the “Zen & the Art of Electronic Signing”, lots of digital ideas were exchanged in the DevZone!


Where in the world will you DocuSign?

During the After-After party we handed out awesome DocuSign jackets to lucky guests. If you received a jacket and took a picture in front of the “Where In The World Will You DocuSign” poster you were automatically entered for a chance to win a trip anywhere in the world! Additionally, if you tweeted or posted a picture of you in front of our “Where In The World Will You DocuSign” poster on one of DocuSign’s social media accounts than you will automatically be entered to win!
