  • “Enterprises’ and consumers’ recognition of the benefits gained from adopting e-signature software and services has led to 48 percent growth in this market in 2011.” Gartner

The ESIGN Service Award was bestowed on Laurie for his pioneering educational efforts, innovation within the industry and championing of the use and acceptance of electronic signatures in commerce.
