CFH embraces The Cloud to bring Docmail to GoogleApp users
Access Docmail's low-cost print and post via Google Apps
More than six million Google Apps users worldwide can now use an internet-based print and post service run by a company based in Somerset.
CFH Total Document Management’s Docmail now allows users to have their mail printed, stuffed and delivered for less than the price of a 2nd class postage stamp, directly from within their Google Apps domain.
Through the use of Docmail, users can write and create mailings - whether a single letter or a personalised mailing to hundreds of people – and deliver them by post. Prices start at just 28 pence plus VAT for a single sided letter printed in black and white and inclusive of all stationery and postage.
The Google Apps innovation was enabled by Appogee, a Google-focused systems integrator that specialises in helping businesses make the most of the cloud.
The use of cloud computing is the latest development for the growing Docmail operation, which was launched by CFH just three years ago.
Continuing to innovate to keep pace with online developments, CFH is now integrating its operation with cloud technology.
Dave Broadway, managing director at CFH says: “Continually innovating your business is a huge challenge, especially when you are increasingly competing with a fast moving online world.
“We are leading the way for traditional offline businesses but we just couldn’t ignore the benefits that this project offered. We are always looking to innovate and drive the business forward.”
Docmail Connect for Google Apps is available now on the Google Apps Marketplace under Document Management.
Appogee used Google’s APIs to list Docmail Connect on the Google Apps Marketplace, allowing Google Apps users to quickly add extra applications to their domain. This means that Docmail Connect for Google Apps not only allows Docmail’s existing users to use Google Docs with the service, it has also provided an excellent opportunity to reach a whole new market of customers operating in the cloud.
