Close Brothers Motor Finance partners with DocuSign to launch remote electronic signature solution

4 February 2022


Close Brothers Motor Finance is launching a remote electronic signature solution which allows customers to sign for their finance agreement from almost anywhere, at any time. The new solution will be provided through Close Brothers Motor Finance’s partnership with DocuSign eSignature, the world’s leading eSignature solution. This new solution will replace their current e-sign process which can only be used by customers physically present at the dealership. 

All dealers, brokers and partners will have access to the electronic sign solution, which aims to streamline processes and make buying a vehicle as flexible as possible for both dealers and customers. The new process will give customers the ability to flex between both in-person and digital, which in recent years, particularly during lockdowns and Government restrictions, is what many consumers have indicated they would want.

As well as making the process easier, the aim of the DocuSign eSignature partnership is to ensure dealers remain in control of the sales process – offering in-showroom signing, distance sale and distance sign options. The convenience of this partnership also allows customers to consider their buying options before purchasing, without having to return to the dealer for the purchase. 

Seán Kemple, Managing Director at Close Brothers Motor Finance, said: “We have worked closely with DocuSign to stretch capabilities and create an e-signature solution that works well for everyone. This particular partnership is new to DocuSign eSignature and has pushed the bounds of what can be achieved. We as a business strive to be forward thinking, always putting both dealer and customer needs at the heart of our processes. This partnership provides us with the ability to do just that, aiding in making flexibility a priority and streamlining the buying process for everyone.”
