This strong performance was driven by significant progress across three pillars of the company’s strategic vision: accelerating product innovation, enhancing the reach and effectiveness of omnichannel go-to-market initiatives, and strengthening operational and financial efficiency.

DocuSign is currently experiencing improved performance with customers managed by the direct sales force. The company has significantly increased its business with customers signing and renewing multiyear, multimillion-dollar contracts, including Fortune 500 global leaders in energy, insurance, industrials, consumer goods, and several federal and state government agencies.

In terms of product innovation, identity verification products like AI-enabled IDV Premier and the recently launched QES-compliant Identity Wallet are now in use by more than 1,000 customers in the U.K. The recently launched DocuSign monitor created 1,500 new accounts in the fourth quarter.

Regarding operational and financial efficiency, ongoing cost management initiatives are helping DocuSign streamline its operations and channelize investments on initiatives that promise long-term growth.
