Halfway through 2018 and this has already been a record year for HelloSign! Building on our success from last year, we’ve once again been recognized by G2 Crowd as a Leader in the eSignature market.
G2 Crowd is the world’s leading software review platform, making this a particularly exciting win. All G2 reviews come straight from our install base of 6M global users and we’re proud to see validation that we’re serving our customers so well.
Against companies that are much bigger (we see you, DocuSign) and that have been around much longer, we’ve grown from being the #1 ranked player in eight categories late last year to being the #1 ranked player across 14 categories, including:
G2 Crowd also ranked HelloSign as the #1 out of all eSignature Leaders for “Most Implementable Software” – again!”
So why have we been able to outperform companies with more resources, people, and money? Why is David beating Goliath?
Our Not-So-Secret Sauce
Our position as a leader boils down to a single, pretty simple mantra: make our users awesome. And to be honest, the best way to highlight that isn’t to brag about the cool features we’ve added or the infrastructure improvements we’ve made; it’s to highlight all the things our customers have been able to accomplish with our API.
- Achieving a 3x reduction in all owner/renter disputes with a transparent audit trail for every rental (RVshare)
- Reducing contractor onboarding time by 270% (Instacart)
- Enabling students to easily apply for high-ROI loans via an innovative new student financing model (ClimbCredit)
- Streamlining the fundraising and investment process using (FrontFundr)
Building a great API isn’t something that one decides on lightly; it takes ongoing dedication and a focus on the long-term success of users. Twillio’s CEO Jeff Lawson said it best: “A great API isn’t a strategy...it is a long-term commitment.”
Our long-term goal when creating the API was to build something that could be embedded into a customer’s existing flow without too much effort, while giving them as much flexibility as possible. After all, businesses today are continually striving to give their customers a more fluid, seamless experience, rather than the confusing and unintegrated experiences of the past. We’re happy to say we’ve been building and improving the HelloSign API from the very beginning, and we're thrilled to see our customer's results.
