Zumbox Launches New iPad Application, Brings Digital Postal Mail Directly to Consumers' Mobile DevicesFree App Enables Consumers to Access and Manage All Household Mail, Including Bills and Statements Any Time, Anywhere (May 01, 2012)
LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 05/01/12 -- Zumbox, the leader in digital postal mail services, today announced the launch of its Digital Postal Mail iPad® application. The free iPad app makes it easy to manage postal mail, receive alerts, view and pay bills and file statements, from an iPad. Application users can also easily elect to go paperless from their providers to reduce their environmental impact.
Digital Postal Mail, a web-based mailbox service from Zumbox, serves as a hub for all of the important paper mail consumers receive. It enables them to view, interact and archive their postal mail in a secure, central, online environment for free. This includes cable and satellite bills and statements, mobile and residential phone bills, credit card statements, shareholder communications, such as annual reports and proxy statements, utility bills and health and property insurance documents.
As postage rates continue to rise, and declining delivery service levels of the USPS remain, people are looking for more convenient, less expensive ways to manage their mail, pay their bills and view their statements. Underscoring that trend, industry research experts at InfoTrends estimate that digital mailbox services will deliver 2 billion paperless documents in 2015, accelerating the transition away from paper delivery.
The Digital Postal Mail app brings all of the features and functionality of Zumbox online portal to the iPad for those that want around-the-clock access to their postal mail, bills and statements while on the go, relaxing at home or even on vacation. Users can access the Digital Postal Mail app from their iPad's App Store, and immediately login to their secure, verified digital postal mail account. The app features intuitive navigation tabs that make for simple online filing of important statements and organization. Filing options include: date, sender, pre-set notifications, read status and even personalized notes.
"The iPad has become a staple in many people's lives for convenient access to digital information on the go -- Digital Postal Mail perfectly complements this device," said John Payne, CEO, Zumbox. "Now users can access and organize their postal mail when they have 5 minutes to spare, while sitting on the couch watching their favorite TV shows, waiting in the dentist office, riding the bus or train to work and even on a plane."
Digital Postal Mail, by Zumbox, is an exact facsimile of paper mail, created as a digital version, before it reaches a large mailing system. Zumbox archives and sends mail in a secure, central, online environment, instead of on paper. Zumbox has created a digital mailbox for every street address in the United States for the secure, on-time delivery of postal mail online. The Zumbox app now brings the power and convenience of digital postal mail to the iPad.
Zumbox is the world's first digital postal system. It connects large transactional, financial and government mailers to consumer households for the delivery and storage of digital postal mail via the Internet. Digital postal mail is an exact facsimile of paper mail created from a redirection of the print stream originally intended for large mailing systems. Zumbox is available through TransCentra, Computershare, DST Output, KUBRA, Ricoh Production Print Solutions, Systemware and others as well as on a direct basis to the largest mailers in the country. For every U.S. street address, there is a corresponding Zumbox -- a digital mailbox -- enabling mail and other content to be sent as digital files and received online. Zumbox represents a more cost-effective, convenient and environmentally responsible way to deliver postal mail. As a closed system of known, verified mailers and recipients, Zumbox provides bank-level security and complies with PCI, HIPAA and BITS security standards.
