"This investment will let us ramp up development so we can integrate our better email experience into other email clients."
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) April 03, 2012
Attachments.me, a provider of software to better manage email attachments, announced today that it has closed a $2 million Series A investment from Foundry Group. This round of investment brings the company’s total funding to date to $2.5 million.
Benjamin Coe and Jesse Miller launched the company in 2011. Initially the product simply brought better attachment search to Gmail. Now through partnerships with cloud-storage solutions like Dropbox and Box, Attachments.me lets its users set up rules to have their attachments automatically organized and uploaded. These rules can save individuals and businesses an incredible amount of time over manually organizing individual emails.
"Cloud storage is becoming the norm in most businesses, but the one piece still missing is email integration," said Jason Mendelson, managing director at Foundry Group. "Attachments.me is working at changing this by creating intuitive tools that integrate email with cloud solutions. The technology they built with their seed round was impressive, and we're excited to be involved as they grow."
“This investment will let us ramp up development so we can integrate our better email experience into other email clients,” said Jesse Miller, CEO of Attachments.me. “We also plan to build on our existing feature set, offering even more ways for our users to organize their files across email and their cloud.”
Attachments.me is currently available as a Google Chrome extension and an iPhone application. Integrations with Dropbox, Box, and Facebook allow users to seamlessly manage their attachments across disparate cloud services. The service has processed 100s of millions of attachments from the accounts of a dedicated user base including lawyers, venture capitalists and recruiters.
