Seattle, Wash. (PRWEB) April 23, 2008
Earth Class Mail Corp., the global leader in delivering postal mail online, announced it has been nominated for two World Mail Awards - the Oscars of the $900 billion global postal industry - in the Innovation and E-Commerce categories. Selection of Earth Class Mail by a panel of industry experts alongside multi-billion dollar postal operators such as Royal Mail, Post Denmark and Canada Post, highlights the strength of the company's technology offering. Earth Class Mail is the only online postal-mail delivery service for individuals and businesses that scales to national deployment by postal operators so that every internet-enabled citizen and business in their country can receive their postal mail online.
"Acknowledgments of success are always welcome," said Ron Wiener, CEO and Postmaster General of Earth Class Mail. "But they also serve to emphasize the importance of what we do. We are at an inflection point in the centuries-old history of postal mail, with ecological and economic pressures on postal operators mounting while revenues are increasingly cannibalized by the internet - there simply must be a change. We may be the smallest company on the shortlist, and the only non-postal operator, but we've got the biggest idea. Posts are so ubiquitous in our daily lives that we often forget that they are typically the largest employers and one of the top energy consumers in their respective countries. Their business models must undergo dramatic changes at times like this, and the awards committee has clearly recognized the significance of our technology platform which allows posts to simultaneously improve customer service, increase revenues, lower operating costs and remain centrally relevant in the Internet Age."
Individual Earth Class Mail users - small businesses, expatriates, field workers, road warrior executives, soldiers and others with changing addresses and mobile lifestyles - enjoy the freedom of accessing their personal postal mail from anywhere. For the enterprise and government, Earth Class Mail digitizes paper mail at its entry point, injecting it directly into a corporation's electronic workflow and saving 75% of typical document lifecycle costs. Delivering postal mail online enables mobile employees and telecommuters to access all of their communications remotely and digitally, as they do their email, fax, and voicemail and cellular calls. The environmental benefits associated with Earth Class Mail's solution include reductions in carbon emissions and a 400% increase in recycling compared to the national average.
Winners of the World Mail Awards will be announced at a gala presentation ceremony held in conjunction with the World Mail and Express Europe conference in Budapest, Hungary, on May 19, 2008.
