Internet Evolution hosts ‘Collaborative e-Commerce on the Cloud’ discussion, featuring IBM and eSignLive

November 15, 2010

Montreal, QC, November 16, 2010 - While many organizations are just starting to get their heads around how to leverage on-line collaboration and social networking for their business, Big Blue recently upped the ante by adding electronic signatures to the mix – a move that is proving to transform the way organizations are interacting with and delivering services to their customers and business partners.

Earlier this year, IBM added Silanis’ electronic signature services to the LotusLive platform enabling, for the first time, Collaborative e-Commerce on the Cloud. In this free 60-minute webcast, Internet Evolution’s senior editor, Michael Singer, will be joined by executives from IBM and Silanis to discuss how its customers are using the integrated cloud services to present, negotiate and sign business deals over the web. IBM and Silanis will demonstrate how this virtual face-to-face environment has eliminated the need for people to travel to documents, and for documents to travel to people, in order to seal the deal.

“Collaborative e-Commerce is about connecting, collaborating and closing business any time, any place, anywhere, and with anyone in the world,” said Robert Al-Jaar, Executive Vice-President of On-line Electronic Signature Services at Silanis and a co-presenter of the webcast .

During the webcast, Mr. Al-Jaar and Beth-Anne Craig, Director of LotusLive Services, will draw from real-world customer examples to illustrate the benefits and ROI of Collaborative e-Commerce, such as:
  • How Signature Mortgage, a small regional mortgage provider, has gained a competitive edge over large national lenders by reducing the time to process consumer mortgages applications from 10 days down to a few minutes.
  • How Canderel is making it easier for investors and business partners to negotiate, review and close high value, commercial real-estate transactions.
  • How the Horton Group uses the integrated services to deliver compliance training to its employees as part of its on-going efforts to protect the privacy of its customers.
“The combined IBM LotusLive and Silanis e-SignLive services provide a secure online environment that lets organizations build, nurture and maintain long-term relationships with their customers, partners and suppliers. A place where they can easily connect with their network of business contacts to exchange ideas, collaborate on the creation of documents, negotiate terms and conditions, make revisions, and electronically sign contracts – all in one sitting. A real game-changer indeed!” added Mr. Al-Jaar. Click here to register for this webcast scheduled for Thursday, November 18 @ 2:00 pm EST.
