Chicago, April 7, 2015 – Wellspring, the leader in enterprise software for research and innovation management, is pleased to announce it is now a DocuSign Technology Partner. DocuSign is the market-leading provider of digital transaction management and e-signatures.  By integrating the DocuSign envelope technology with Sophia, Wellspring’s software for navigating innovation, clients will be able to easily manage all the document routing and approval tasks that a research operation requires to run smoothly.
