RPost App Extends Box with Legal, Secure, and Verifiable Document Services

Author:

RPost just released an RPost app integrated into Box (formerly Box.net) that extends document delivery options with a familiar email user experience. Box’s RPost application allows users to send files attached to Registered Email messages from within their Box account, for the most legally robust record of who sent what documents to whom and when by email, with time-stamped proof of document content delivered to the recipient’s inbox; as well as HIPAA compliant email encryption and electronic signing options providing auditable proof of recipient consent or signature on documents sent by RPost from Box online file storage. RPost is offering these services from within the Box interface free for the first ten documents sent per month, with file sizes up to 200MB per transmission.

Many Box users collaborate with clients, business associates, suppliers, advocates and adversaries that they might not want to invite to have log-in access to their Box account, regardless of how secure the firewalls are.  Further, with many business users experiencing email overload, senders of messages and documents need to consider the recipient experience – simplifying and speeding access to messages and their attached documents.

With RPost’s new Box app, Box users can now, with one extra click, share files with external parties attached to a Registered Email message from within their Box account, preserving security and email recipient experience with no downloads or log-ins.

Box users will now have access to RPost’s ‘Triple Play’ for document delivery by email – proof, encryption, and electronic signature services completing Box’s office-in-the-cloud platform permitting their millions of customers to further eliminate printing, faxing, mailing and scanning when it comes to transmitting, tracking, securing, and signing high value documents.”

RPost further simplified the process of obtaining recipient signatures on documents or contracts stored within Box with RPost’s electronic signature and contract signing services permitting the sender — without leaving the Box user interface or need for any document preparation or set-up — to send documents by email in a special manner such that the recipient can view the document in their browser and use their mouse to script their handwritten signature right onto the document. This provides both parties with a final and legal e-signed agreement.
