Through our partnership with Goodmail Systems, we are adding an important additional layer of trust and authentication
New York, NY (Vocus) January 20, 2009
Striata, a specialist and innovator in electronic document delivery, today announced that it has added Goodmail's CertifiedEmail to its Secure eDocument Delivery solutions in order to enhance recipient trust in statements, bills, collection notices, policies and other high-volume, system-generated documents delivered securely by email.
Striata commercial email delivery solutions consist of an array of methodologies and technologies that ensure inbox penetration in a way that allows for complete and intuitive recipient consumer trust that these messages are indeed genuine.
"Through our partnership with Goodmail Systems, we are adding an important additional layer of trust and authentication," says Garin Toren, Striata Chief Operating Officer. "We are avid supporters of the Goodmail model and look forward to ever increasing levels of trust in transactional email for our clients."
CertifiedEmail is the ultimate defense against phishing: A blue ribbon envelope icon, unique to CertifiedEmail messages, lets recipients know that the email really is from the sender it appears to be from and can be trusted. CertifiedEmail is built directly into the recipient's email application, with no downloads or plug-ins required. Available only to senders with the best email practices and consumer reputation, CertifiedEmail messages are also delivered directly to the inbox past content and volume filters with all links and images rendered by default.
"CertifiedEmail takes the guess work out of email and assures recipients that messages are real and safe to respond to," said Peter Horan, CEO of Goodmail Systems. "By sending CertifiedEmail, Striata's clients and their customers will enjoy a greater level of trust and security."
Striata enables the largest financial Institutions and billers in North America to securely deliver electronic statements, bills and other high volume, system generated documents directly into consumer inboxes, without the need to link back to web self service portals. A key element of this successful and highly adopted strategy is trust in the authenticity of the email message and encrypted attachment. Through its partnership with Goodmail, all Striata clients will now enjoy the significant benefits of CertifiedEmail.
CertifiedEmail messages are imprinted with unique tokens which ISPs validate individually when the messages are delivered, thus further augmenting Striata Reporting. CertifiedEmail is supported by the largest email providers and is currently available at AOL, Yahoo and Cox Communications. AT&T, BT, Comcast, RoadRunner, Telus, and Verizon are in the process of rolling out during 2009.
Striata's Secure eDocument Delivery and Email Bill Presentment & Payment (EBPP) are solution sets that deliver a rapid reduction in operational costs, quicker payments and an enhanced customer experience.
Striata revolutionizes the way bills, statements, policies, collection notices, letters, paystubs and other high volume system-generated documents are delivered and paid. Registration requirements are eliminated by emailing feature rich, interactive, encrypted documents directly to the inbox and enabling innovative 1-click electronic payment from within the document itself. Direct email delivery of bills and statements dramatically increases customer adoption of electronic documents, paper turn off and ePayments. This enables Striata's clients to achieve rapid ROI; complement their existing self-service and e-communication strategies; significantly reduce paper output and to meet their carbon footprint/environmental impact targets.
