BNP Paribas Open kicked off this week, and we are thrilled to be a contributing sponsor for the event. This is our third time as a sponsor for this tournament, and we plan to have some fun with it!
The BNP Paribas Open is the largest professional two-week combined ATP and WTA Tour tennis tournament in the world. 96 players compete in the singles, and 32 teams compete in the double draws. The tournament takes place at Indian Wells Tennis Garden in Southern California, March 6 – March 19. More than 300 of the world’s best players, including seven former BNP Paribas Open Champions, will descend on Indian Wells and compete for more than $14 million in prize money in front of more than 400,000 fans.
There are a lot of reasons to get excited about the tournament this year. Not only is each top-10 player from both the ATP World Tour and WTA entered for the 2017 BNP Paribas Open, but Indian Wells Tennis Garden has deployed contract management with Barracuda’s e-signature solution, SignNow.
“E-Signature continues to be a fast growing area in workflow automation,” said Ken Grohe, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Emerging Technologies at Barracuda. “As customers look to simplify their overall processes, E-Signature gives them the flexibility for a fast, secure, mobile user experience that can quickly translate to ROI for their organizations.”
“Managing and hosting one of the largest tennis tournaments in the world is an exhilarating experience but also presents logistical challenges,” said Steve Birdwell, COO of Desert Champions. “We turned to Webiplex’s DocuPeak to streamline our contract management and provide a seamless experience for our valued partners. The recently integrated SignNow e-signature feature helps keep us mobile and efficient.”
