IT Providers Continue to Unite With RPost
On March 16, as the Covid-19 crisis seemed to be spiraling out of control, RPost announced its E-Sign & E-Security (Free) Work-from-Home Program. RPost was among the very first companies to announce a truly free E-Sign and E-Security bundle that seamlessly works within Outlook, Gmail, Zimbra, Salesforce.com, and with mobile devices. Users start with RSign and RMail business licenses for use during the crisis, and they after can continue use free at base service levels.
A little over a week after release, IT providers around the world began to unite with RPost and its initiative so as to bring their clients an e-sign and security work-from-home readiness program that would be as minimally disruptive as possible given the growing crisis.
As of April 9, the list of IT providers keeps growing with participants across the Americas and Europe. This is a testament to the solidarity we are seeing in this exceptional crisis–businesses helping businesses and friends helping friends everywhere.
One of the earliest to embrace this initiative was Frama, an RPost pan-European partner. Since participating in this E-Sign & E-Security (Free) Work-from-Home Program, Frama has enrolled 12,000 of its business customers in the Netherlands and continues to add its customers across Europe.
“Our teams are working in overdrive to help our customers across Europe transition to a work-from-home environment, securely and efficiently,” remarks Volker Sommerfeld of Frama. “Our customers are thankful that we are making RSign and RMail free for them during this transition period; and we think they will continue thereafter as our customers will look for the best and affordable tools ongoing.”
“We see RSign in especially high demand with its shared templates that make it easy for home workers to follow centrally managed policies and guidelines,” adds Sommerfeld. “We are helping our larger clients pick and choose the right RSign e-signature features to fit specific requirement, processes, and form complexity.” While RMail and RSign are free and instant to start using, businesses in Europe may connect with Frama experts in the UK, Denmark, Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, or Italy directly (find Frama experts for RMail or Frama experts for RSign).
This health crisis has also spawned a tremendous amount of new correspondence among banks and their clients — most of which must be sent encrypted. Eric Johnson AVP/IT Manager of First National Bank installed RMail into their Exchange email system to automatically convert all customer correspondence related to loans and account information to RMail encrypted email, using RMail Gateway and RMail for Outlook. The key was not only to automate email encryption but also to do so in a way that makes it easy for intended recipients and for our clients to one-click reply and return files encrypted.
