File sharing and remote access to work files are absolutely necessary for growing businesses. But, how much time to you spend printing out documents, only to sign it and fax it away. Or, maybe even sign it, scan it in, then email it away. However, all that can be done on one online interface with YouSendIt.
“YouSendIt is how business gets done online,” said Ivan Koon, CEO of YouSendIt. “Now more than ever, professionals need solutions that help them efficiently manage the flow of important business content. The new YouSendIt builds on our leadership in secure file sharing, makes it easier to access and sign off on critical content, and shapes the way work will get done in the future.”
YouSendIt allows you to send, to share, and to sign documents online, all in one place, without the limits of email. No more fussing with attachments and file size limits. Users can also store files online and invite colleagues to share and to collaborate. Files can also be synced to the cloud for unlimited storage. People can even track if their emails have been opened and if the file has been received and fill out forms without any of the mess of printing and follow ups.
“Collaborative applications represent the fundamental tools for people and organizations to not only communicate, but also get business done,” said Erin Traudt, research director for IDC’s Enterprise Collaboration and Social Solutions Practice. “In today’s highly connected and mobile business environment, corporations and individual users need a seamless way to share and collaborate around documents without worrying about storage, security and access.”
YouSendIt currently has over 20 million registered users and 450,000 paid subscribers. One of YouSendIt’s newest features is the e-signature capability, developed based on the feedback of its customers. This feature facilitates annotations and legal signatures via mouse or mobile touch screen on a variety of document formats including, Microsoft Word and Excel and Adobe PDF. It eliminates the common need to print, sign, copy and fax documents and allows signature functionality anywhere via the desktop, Web or mobile devices. Signed documents can be saved, sent and shared with one click. The signature feature builds on the company’s January acquisition of Zosh, a provider of innovative mobile electronic signature services.
YouSendIt is now available through a Web app, mobile apps for iPhone and iPad downloadable from the Apple iTunes store and a desktop app for Windows OS. Mac and Android compatibility are scheduled for release in the next several months.
