PDF Courier: Managed File Transfer Made Easy

Managed File Transfer

Sending files to and from organizations is part of our corporate communication. What originally began decades ago as simple file transfers between research and government campuses, has become part of business interactions around the world. FTP was the original workhorse that enabled us to send files, but as network capacities grew, so did our need to send larger and larger files.

Soon FTP carried complex documents, large images, and even multimedia. As a result, file transferring softwares and email applications became popular alternatives to FTP, but their popularity also came with a price. Security issues similar to those that plagued FTP often found their way into many file transferring softwares. And even though email applications were more secure than their file transferring counterparts, they too experienced problems, especially concerning privacy.

Inspired from FTP, Only Better
It wasn't long before software developers recognized the need to provide end-users with tools that functioned like FTP, (but with better security) and also included notification options commonly found in email applications. The answer became what is known today as File Transfer (MFT) tools. MFT tools refer to a family of applications that enable end-users to send, track, and manage file transfers in and out of organizations.

Amyuni Technologies recognized the benefit of MFT tools and as a result, developed the PDF Courier; a simple and secure MFT tool to help users send and track their documents. With just a few options and configurations, the PDF Courier keeps file transfers simple without compromising security.

In our next post we shall explore some of the PDF Courier key features such how it can:

  • Guaranty the delivery of your important documents and emails.
  • Prevent your documents and attachments from being blocked by email SPAM filters.
  • Convert your documents into PDF prior to being sent.
  • Track your documents and make sure they are delivered and read using real-time status notifications.
  • Transfer and store large files and avoid the storage limitations often imposed by many email applications.
  • Preview your sent and stored documents online, without the need to download them.
  • Work directly from your Microsoft Outlook® application.
