  • Background

    Until the implementation of the apsolut eSignature Connector for DocuSign, Bruker’s signature process for quotes was cumbersome and lacked transparency. After creating a document in SAP, a PDF was generated to which an electronic signature was attached in a manual step. This meant that tracking the sign status was not straightforward. In the event of sickness or someone standing in for a member of staff, there was no simple method of checking if a specific bid had already been signed.

  • Application

    Initially, Bruker decided to implement the apsolut eSignature Connector for DocuSign for two of its companies, totalling an annual volume of around 5,000 bidding documents. The newly implemented process is scalable and can be rolled out to further companies within the group. To start with, the first signer maintained in the document receives an email with a link requesting them to apply their signature via DocuSign. Once all the signatures have been applied, the person initiating the signing process automatically receives a status update via email. The signed document and the Certificate of Completion are then automatically attached to the bidding document in the SAP Records Management. The sign status can be viewed at any time via the bidding document in SAP.

  • E-Seals on Invoices

    In addition, Bruker uses the eSignature Connector at its subsidiary in Portugal, where a legally binding electronic seal is now automatically attached to all billing documents.

  • Business Outcome
    • Significantly shortened process through automated workflow
    • Greatly reduced error susceptibility through elimination of manual steps and media discontinuities
    • Transparency due to possibility of viewing status at any time
    • 100 percent legal security

„With its intelligent toolbox, apsolut was able to implement all our individual requirements speedily. That enabled us to quickly start testing and boost efficiency considerably.”

Kirsten Müller, Senior IT Demand & Project Manager, Bruker Corporation

At GESOBAU, rental contracts are now signed electronically


At GESOBAU, rental contracts are now signed electronically

BranchHousing and real estate industry
Number of employees488 (2021)
Turnover316 million euros (2021)
HeaquartersBerlin, Germany
  • Background

    GESOBAU is a municipal housing company in Berlin, which manages some 45,000 residential and commercial units. The company had been thinking about an electronic solution for signing rental contracts for some time. The coronavirus pandemic and the social distancing it imposed gave them the final push to do something about it.

  • Application

    GESOBAU creates rental contracts in the SAP ECC system and transmits them to DocuSign. The tenants can sign their rental contracts entirely digitally after 2-factor authentication via SMS. The signed contracts are automatically returned to the SAP ECC.

  • Specifications

    To implement the eSignature Connector for DocuSign, the apsolut team entered uncharted waters, connecting the “Real Estate FX” module integrated in SAP ECC with the DocuSign cloud for the first time. At GESOBAU’s request, the implementation of the 2-factor authentication was incorporated into the connector standard and apsolut programmed a user-defined form input field.

  • Business Outcome

    Thanks to the automated process, GESOBAU was able to achieve significant time savings. In addition, they saved large amounts of paper, printer cartridges and postage. And there is a simpler onboarding process available for new tenants.

“Of course, the purpose of implementing a new software tool is to save money. But with the connector, there is more to it: The process of contract signing and digital archiving is now much faster for us than previously when it involved the postal route. The contract documents no longer need to be printed out and once the process has been completed, the rental contracts are automatically filed in the archive system. All manual activities have been eliminated.”

Sabine Klein, Information Technology – User Support Officer, GESOBAU

The problem

Despite today's technical progress, many companies continue to rely on manually signing their documents. This process is well-dried, but inefficient and error-prone. In addition to long manual processes and time wasted printing and mailing documents, you tie up many internal resources and lose precious time.
