AccountKit, a leading provider of accounting compliance automation tools, and FuseSign, a renowned eSigning platform for accountants, are thrilled to announce their strategic partnership. This collaboration aims to simplify and accelerate the eSigning process for bookkeepers and accountants, eliminating the need for manual data transfers between systems.

Traditionally, professionals in the accounting sector faced the cumbersome task of exporting data from one system and importing it into another to facilitate eSigning. This manual process was not only time-consuming but also prone to errors, leading to potential discrepancies in financial documents.

With this new integration, AccountKit will send documents along with recipient details, such as the e-signer's name, number, email, and email content, directly to FuseSign.

This eliminates the manual entry of these details, which is a common pain point.

Once the data is in FuseSign, users have access to the breadth of FuseSign-specific settings such as setting up e-signing fields and other advanced levels of flexibility such as FuseSign’s specific setting which controls who needs to sign, view or not access a document in a bundle,  before dispatching the documents for signing.

As the signing process progresses, FuseSign will dynamically update AccountKit's status dashboard, reflecting the current status of all bundles and each recipient's actions, whether opened, rejected, or signed.

Upon completion, users are promptly notified through various channels like email, slack, teams, etc., and the signed documents are automatically filed back to their original location, regardless of the Document Management System (DMS) in use.

Key Benefits of the Integration:

1. Efficiency: Eliminates the need for manual data exports and imports, saving valuable time.

2. Accuracy: Reduces the risk of human error associated with manual data transfers.

3. Convenience: Allows accountants to manage and authorise documents within a single platform, enhancing user experience.

4. Security: Ensures that sensitive financial data remains protected during the transfer and eSigning process.

"This integration is a game-changer for our customers," said Paul Murray, Founder of AccountKit. "We're always looking for ways to enhance our platform and make our users' lives easier. Integrating with FuseSign allows us to do just that."

Melissa Voss, commented, "We're excited to collaborate with AccountKit. Together, we're offering a solution that addresses a significant pain point for accountants. Our joint solution ensures that the eSigning process is as smooth and efficient as possible."

Rebecca Mihalic, director at businessDEPOT Sydney, a customer of both AccountKit and FuseSign, shared her enthusiasm about the integration: "This collaboration is a significant leap forward for our workflow.”

“The manual process of transferring data between systems was always a tedious task. Now, with this integration, we can focus more on our clients and less on administrative tasks. I'm genuinely excited about the efficiency and accuracy this will bring to our business."

The integration is now in Open Beta to all AccountKit and FuseSign users effective in October.
