Vista Equity Partners makes majority investment in Pipedrive

eSignatures and integrations with leading cloud storage service platforms added to Sales Docs
When we launched Sales Docs in July, it was only the first step in the journey of our exciting new feature.
Sales Docs (which is available to users on the Advanced, Professional and Enterprise plans) enables you to send trackable quotes, proposals and contracts from Pipedrive.
You can create templates that automatically pull in Pipedrive fields data to cut down on manual work and know when your sales documents are opened so you can follow up and close deals faster.
When originally launched Sales Docs had an integration with Google Drive. Now it integrates with two more leading cloud storage service platforms: OneDrive and SharePoint.
We’ve also added eSignatures, which is available to Professional and Enterprise users.
With eSignatures, you can get documents signed using Pipedrive, without needing extra software or having to print and scan copies. eSignatures is currently in Beta.
Pipedrive users who have permission to view the related deal can:
- Send a signature request to anyone using their email address, even if they’re not a Pipedrive contact
- Request up to 10 people’s signatures on a document
- Check who has signed the document and receive email notifications every time someone adds their signature
- Send reminders to people who are yet to sign the document
- Cancel the signing process if necessary
- Be sure that the signed document is sent to all participants and is stored and accessible on Pipedrive
You can read all about Sales Docs and eSignatures in our blog article.
