Zumbox: Digitizing Mail Delivery

Posted on July 23, 2012


The world is becoming increasingly digitized; even our mail deliveries will eventually be completely digital. Zumbox has already taken a step towards this future, delivering scanned mail such as bills and letters to their users online. MarketMAPS takes a look at how Zumbox works and what they hope to accomplish.

Launched in 2009, Zumbox has been positioned as a digital alternative to the Post Office, allowing users to send and receive scanned letters, bills and other things you would typically send through traditional snail mail. After sign up, you can begin receiving mail from those mailers who support digital versions and you can log into to your online Zumbox at any time to view this mail in its digital format. Once you’re comfortable with the system, you can then switch off the paper versions for any given mailer on a case-by-case basis.

Following its launch, Zumbox gained some high profile investors, including Walt Disney CEO, Michael Eisner, and Rick Braddock, the former CEO of Priceline.com. Since then, Zumbox has raised a substantial amount of funding and has been creating key partnerships.

Recently, Zumbox partnered with Catalog Choice, a non-profit organization that allows users to opt out of receiving catalogs. Through this partnership, Zumbox users can unsubscribe from unwanted physical mail through their Zumbox accounts. Zumbox has also created an application that allows users to view their digital mail on their tablet or smartphone.

Digital solutions are increasingly becoming more popular among businesses and consumers. One of the first companies to offer maps in a digital format, MarketMAPS provides the highest quality wall maps, map books, and digital maps . Like Zumbox, we help things get delivered.
