OfficeDrop Reaches 100,000 User Mark for Digital Filing CabinetThe Future's So Bright, We Gotta Wear Shades (February 27, 2012)
CAMBRIDGE, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/27/12 -- Hey, remember back in November when OfficeDrop hit 50,000 users for our cloud filing cabinet software? We thought that was pretty rad. It was great proof that people like storing their paper in our searchable cloud. Well, it's only three months later and we've doubled those users to 100,000. As Johnny Utah would say, "Woah."
Luckily, unlike a Keanu Reeves character from the early '90s, CEO Prasad Thammineni has something really intelligent to say. "OfficeDrop has found our niche market of small businesses in paper-intensive industries who want to search and store their documents in the cloud. There's a lot of them out there, and they find that our solution addresses their need to find the documents they need quickly, wherever they may be. Our strategy in 2012 is to expand our reach to even more small business users through strategic OEM partnerships and the continued adoption of our innovative smartphone and tablet apps. Oh, and, 'I am an F.B.I AGENT!'"
OEM'ing the Cloud & The OfficeDrop Effect
One of the reasons OfficeDrop is able to reach so many small businesses is through OEM partnerships with companies small businesses are already familiar with. Last year, we partnered with Nuance, whose PaperPort software is shipped in the box with bazillions of scanners around the world. Now people can fire up their scanners and automatically connect to OfficeDrop's cloud filing cabinet technology using PaperPort Anywhere. We're expecting our growth to accelerate even more in the coming year with a series of new OEM partners. And custom, industry-specific applications of OfficeDrop you'd never expect. No, we can't tell you everything right now, but hang tight!
So what's this talk about "The OfficeDrop Effect" you ask? It's when you're using OfficeDrop and you don't even know it. It's not the rotten kind of secret like when people swap out your restaurant coffee with Columbian Decaf Coffee Crystals and video tape your reaction. Think of it more like this: the companies you trust most are counting on OfficeDrop to build a secure, reliable connection to the cloud.
And if you're going to South By Southwest, check out OfficeDrop's session, "When Goliath Tries to Steal Your Lunch Money" on Saturday, March 10 -- it's just for startups like us that are out there "chasing the big wave" and battling big competition. And in our case, learning to play nice with our competition, too.
OfficeDrop makes it easy for small businesses to scan paper to the cloud and access documents from anywhere, at any time, from any device. OfficeDrop's cloud filing cabinet lets users sort, search and share documents -- giving paper new life and making documents collaborative. Headquartered in Cambridge, MA, OfficeDrop was founded in 2007. For more information, visit www.officedrop.com.
