Born from a problem faced by founder Sunil Patro while he was in vacation in 2009, SignEasy (previously EasySignMobile) allows you to sign documents from a distance; it allows you to take signatures everywhere. Having launched on the Appstore in July 2010, the utility has come a long way and has crossed a major milestone of 1 M signature events processed till date, broke into top 10 business apps on iOS and expect to reach 500,000 downloads shortly.
The company is now SignEasy. “We wanted to have a have our own trademark/brand recognition and a shorter and better name to reflect our long term vision,” says Sunil Patro.
SignEasy also became one of the 50 select mobile Apps in Box’s OneCloud platform where Box users can access SignEasy app directly from Box iOS and Android app to sign any documents.
Talking about the trends in the segment, Sunil mentions, “India is ranked 6th in terms of app downloads and also 10th in terms of revenue. Considering Indians deal with lot of paperwork, it is great to see adoption of the app in India.”

Founded by Pankaj Dugar after a successful run of two decades, across India and the US, Treetle has gained significant traction and post the national launch, it plans to go overseas in the next two quarters.
