Headquartered in Santa Barbara, California, SecureDocs Inc. is dedicated to building software solutions that are highly secure, easily adopted, and affordable for every business.
It all began with our experience using other virtual data room providers to manage financial transactions early in our careers. We found them to be clumsy, lacking, and generally inefficient. And we knew we could create something better. So we did.
Our first solution, SecureDocs Virtual Data Room, made its debut in April of 2012, and has equipped businesses of all types and sizes with a solution to streamline the deal-making process, easily and securely. Since its launch, thousands of financial transactions worth billions of dollars have been completed using the platform.
Next, we focused on building a solution that would help businesses manage and track their contracts securely and with greater ease and efficiency. And soon after, ContractWorks Contract Management Software was born.
As we’ve continued to grow, so has the global footprint of our customers and, in January 2020, we opened an office in London UK to service the needs of businesses in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa.
Most recently, we launched ReadySign, an electronic signature tool built to help companies and educational institutions sign agreements quickly, and from anywhere. ReadySign is unique in the electronic signature space in that it comes with unlimited signers and unlimited envelopes.
Today, we continue to innovate new solutions to help companies around the world do business better.
Our team is a group of talented, innovative, and hard-working people who are dedicated to providing highly functional software with outstanding service and support.
