Born to address the limitations of Internet delivery systems, SKOOT, now available on the Jamcracker Services Delivery Network, offers business customers the ability to send files of no practical size limitation with guaranteed receipt.

Businesses are demanding a better alternative to overnight shipping for sharing large files with guaranteed delivery

Topia Technology now offers SKOOT™, a subscription service where information of unrestricted size is securely and instantly "skooted" through cyberspace, on the Jamcracker Services Delivery Network (JSDN). This partnership enables service providers and resellers to provide SKOOT to their end customers. SKOOT, which has been tested to send more than 65 gigs (the equivalent of 10 feature length films), allows businesses to send and receive files of no practical size limitation - whether photos, video, news footage, advertising story boards, full color brochures, legal briefs and more -- all bypassing traditional email or FTP transfers.

"Digital technology has outpaced current Internet delivery methods and the proliferation of digital media intensifies the need to immediately and effortlessly send huge files over the Internet," said Janine Terrano, founder and chief executive officer of Topia Technology, recently named one of the fastest growing companies in Washington State. "We built SKOOT using technology originally developed for the Department of Defense/US Army Intelligence Security Command. It has been tested in the most secure, demanding of conditions, and we're now able to offer these same capabilities to civilian business applications. Jamcracker customers will find that SKOOT provides the answer to bounced back emails, failed delivery of large files, network interruptions, lost productivity and most importantly, frustrated customers."

SKOOT effortlessly performs large file transfers regardless of operating system. And, as a non-invasive integration with Microsoft Windows or Macintosh OSX, transferring files with SKOOT is easy and time efficient. No worries in an emergency either: if the Internet connection or power source is severed, SKOOT remembers and resumes transferring where it left off.

"Businesses are demanding a better alternative to overnight shipping for sharing large files with guaranteed delivery," said Steve Crawford, vice president of marketing for Jamcracker. "SKOOT boosts productivity by allowing companies to send huge files securely with the guarantee that they will be received. This on-demand application is a valuable addition to the Jamcracker portfolio of business communications and collaboration solutions."

SKOOT enables individuals and businesses to share unprecedented amounts of data- music, photos, videos and more while guaranteeing privacy through secure, end-to-end encryption. Rather than posting private information in a public forum, SKOOT users can automatically share private information in a trusted and secure manner much like a virtual private network (VPN).

What Makes SKOOT™ Different?

  •     Unprecedented file-sharing capability for photos, videos, graphics, MP3 files and all other large digital files when used on a computer hard drive
  •     Bypasses the hassles of email and file transfer protocol (FTP) for immediate and secure transfer
  •     In power or connectivity loss Skoot™ remembers and resumes operation where it left off
  •     Limitless applications for any company using email or overnight delivery service for large data file transfer (medical information, news footage, photos, legal documents and more.)
