Bridge Advisory and Consulting recently announced a strategic partnership with DocuSign, a pioneer and global leader in electronic signature and agreement cloud solutions. The partnership aims to expand the DocuSign solutions to the Sri Lankan market, further supporting the digital transformation journeys of organizations across key sectors in Sri Lanka.
In today’s world, digital transformation has significantly accelerated due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and is continuing to compel more organisations to automate their document management systems to include digital and electronic signatures. As customers expect fast, seamless mobile and digital banking options, businesses are now looking at new ways on how they can prepare, sign, act on and manage agreements to ensure customers, corporate partners and employees benefit from a faster and more convenient experience.
The Sri Lankan government recently issued a circular mandating the use of electronic documents including digital signatures commencing from 1st October 2021, to be implemented by 31 December 2021. All parties liaising with the government would thus be required to transact electronically using Digital Signatures. Bridge Advisory and Consulting has partnered with DocuSign to step in and support the government’s directive by providing a world class solution that would greatly speed up Sri Lanka’s digital transformation journey.
As part of the DocuSign Agreement Cloud, DocuSign offers eSignature: the world’s #1 platform to sign electronically through any device, from almost anywhere and at any time.

These include: DocuSign eSignature, DocuSign CLM, DocuSign Identify, DocuSign Notary, DocuSign Insight and DocuSign Click. The suite of products provides an abundance of services and utilises cutting-edge AI powered processes to alleviate productivity and streamline customer experience. DocuSign’s wide product range ensures comprehensive coverage of a plethora of use-cases, at each step of a customers or organisation’s documentation life cycle, from account opening to lending to auditing and compliance measures as well.
Commenting on the strategic partnership, Nick Van Breda, Regional Vice President – Asia at DocuSign, said: “We’re thrilled to be partnering with Bridge Advisory and Consulting to bring the DocuSign Agreement Cloud to businesses of all sizes across Sri Lanka. We’re excited to see companies in the Sri Lankan market accelerate their digitalisation projects and start saving themselves time, money and the environment, by taking their agreement process digital with DocuSign.”
Adding his thoughts on the significance of the partnership, Chief Innovation Officer of Bridge Advisory and Consulting, Sanjay Mendis stated, “Digital transformation continues to play a large, ever-expanding role in streamlining operational efficiencies globally.
