“For over 75 years, Pitney Bowes has provided two million customers worldwide with
practical solutions in business communications,” said Jeffrey C. Smith, CEO and president of Tumbleweed Software. “With iSend, both Pitney Bowes and Tumbleweed are committed to bringing new levels of efficiency and security to satisfy the growing demand for online document delivery.”
iSend is intended to complement existing e-mail and to provide a
round-the-clock alternative to overnight package delivery services. It requires
no special software or proprietary protocols, being hosted by the vendor and
using standard Web browser clients. It integrates Adobe Acrobat to convert
files to Portable Document Format (PDF), enabling all documents to be
delivered and viewed, including legal contracts and even multimedia files, the firms stated.
iSend is based on Posta, Tumbleweed’s flagship platform, which offers high
security document delivery.
