Wilmington, Del., October 5, 2020 – Wilmington Trust, a leader in corporate and institutional trust services, announces it has integrated DocuSign
to enable the automated transfer of authoritative copy documents into the Wilmington Trust eVault platform – a single sign-on, electronic program that maintains the integrity of e-signed documents.
“We’re excited to work with DocuSign on this new interface and to provide our clients with the ability to transfer authoritative copies directly from DocuSign to our eVault,” said Joseph Deller, Product Development Manager, Wilmington Trust. “This highlights Wilmington Trust’s dedication to providing the highest level of service and solutions for our clients, who can now access both our eVault platform and full-service document custody.”
DocuSign publishes an application programming interface (API) that Wilmington Trust used to build this integration, which is fully transparent to end users. The integration allows for the seamless transfer of authoritative copy documents from DocuSign to the Wilmington Trust DocMagic eVault. The ability to electronically sign documents is much more efficient than requiring physical presence to sign, which has become even more important due to restrictions and concerns related to COVID-19. In addition, the authoritative copy capability – the electronic equivalent of a wet ink signed document – is essential as investors and warehouse lenders increasingly require an authoritative copy to be held in custody in order to secure funding.
