YouSendIt ramps up customer growth in 2013 with key new deals

CAMPBELL, Calif. – April 17, 2013 – From one of the world’s leading golf brands to rare book librarians and global architects, today’s most prominent businesses are turning to YouSendIt to get it done. YouSendIt’s service is helping organizations like PING, the Beinecke Library at Yale, RTKL, USGA, Ryder, Cadence and PGA to access and share files from anywhere and work online with anyone.

Powering the extended enterprise

Whether an individual freelancer, a small-to-medium company, or a large enterprise, businesses have an increasing need to share information with external clients, contractors, partners and agencies. YouSendIt allows companies to enhance the power of existing systems including Microsoft Outlook and SharePoint, while providing the kind of effortless experience that users increasingly expect.

“The Consumerization of IT—people bringing tools and apps from their personal lives into the workplace—has pushed business technology solutions down a path of simplicity,” says YouSendIt CEO, Brad Garlinghouse. “What YouSendIt offers is that ease of use alongside an unmatched focus on security, which is so critical for any business.”

“We’ve moved well beyond just ‘send’ and that’s born out of the diverse ways in which customers are benefitting from our service. They are storing and sharing content, working with partners in the cloud, digitally signing documents and doing all of this from their mobile phones and tablets.”

The anywhere solution

With 350 million employees set to use smartphones by 2016, any business solution needs to work across multiple platforms. Whether an employee uses a desktop computer, laptop, mobile phone or tablet, businesses need secure and manageable multi-purpose tools.

The YouSendIt iPhone app was recently featured as a New and Noteworthy Productivity app in the App Store, while apps for Android, Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 ensure that YouSendIt is meeting the access and sharing needs of an increasingly mobile user base.

“The whole Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) movement is forcing IT departments to find a balance between employee preferences and business security,” explains YouSendIt Chief Product Officer, Matte Scheinker. “YouSendIt mobile apps help companies enforce their mobility policies, while letting employees get the job done their way. We’re simplifying and solving problems within the increasingly mobile enterprise and that’s reflected by the range of customers that have recently partnered with us.”
