YouSendIt’s claim to fame is that it offers one suite of services for sending, syncing, storing and electronically signing documents. The alternative is to use a consumer service like Dropbox to sync files, Docusign for signing them and someone else for project folders, said Brian Curry, YouSendIt’s VP of product and business strategy.
“We ended last quarter with 23.5 million users,” Curry added. “We think these are mostly professional users … people working in small or home offices, legal firms, design departments within larger companies — folks that need secure file transfer where classic email doesn’t work, people who need to set read and write permissions and to do electronic signatures,” Curry said.
A free version of the service allows use of all the mobile, desktop and web clients but limits users to transferring one 50MB document at a time, 2GB of cloud storage, and five free signatures. The paid Premium version ($9.99 per month or $49.99 per year per user) has no storage limit, allows transfer of multiple files at once and 100 signatures per year.
There is another tier for corporate customers needing 10,000 seats at a time which integrates with the corporate Active Directory allowing single sign-on and policy management.
