HomeAway Software®, the leading provider of property management software for professional vacation rental managers, announces the integration of gladCONTRACT™, the industry’s leading electronic signature tool for vacation rental managers, powered by Adobe Document Cloud. Adobe Document Cloud eSign services are built directly into gladCONTRACT and eliminate the extremely slow and wasteful process of printing, signing, scanning and faxing or emailing rental contracts. The integration makes electronic signatures available to vacation rental managers serving more than 1.5 million travelers per year.

The partnership between HomeAway Software and Adobe offers the easiest way for property managers to streamline guest contract signatures and save valuable time for each reservation processed. gladCONTRACT generates branded rental agreements between guests and managers that are both deliverable and executable via desktop or a mobile device, making it the most efficient and streamlined process for all customers. The contract is sent automatically at a predetermined date after the guest’s reservation is made and upon completion is instantly synched with the manager’s software requiring no further bookkeeping.

“HomeAway Software is always looking to give our property manager customers the leading edge,” says Bill Furlong, vice president of HomeAway Software. “Partnering with Adobe to introduce gladCONTRACT not only speeds up the reservation process, but allows managers and their guests the convenience of communicating and finalizing reservations with the click of a button.”

“Adobe Document Cloud helps many of the world’s top companies streamline signature processes, both within their own organizations and for their customers,” says Jon Perera, vice president of product management, Adobe Document Cloud. “With Adobe Document Cloud eSign services, HomeAway customers can experience first-hand the wonder of sending and signing a rental contract from their desktop, smartphone or tablet.”

“Our contract process overall has improved immensely. Not only do our contracts look great, but the format is perfect and our guests can provide a signature from any device,” says Jennifer Talbert of South Walton, Fla.-based 360 Blue®. “gladCONTRACT is functional for any type of business in our industry and requires very little effort and maintenance.”

gladCONTRACT is currently available on HomeAway Software’s Escapia® and in development for V12.NET® customers and is yet another innovative product development as a result of HomeAway®’s acquisition of leading mobile guest management solution Glad to Have You™ in March 2014.
