HP, UPS take to the Web for document delivery



   Bookmark and Share

Hewlett-Packard and UPS have joined to Web-enable the package-transfer service model, helping workers send paper-based documents over the Internet with the push of a button.

The UPS Document Exchange service lets users send and track digital documents over the Internet; HP's 9100C Digital Sender sends and receives the document at each end in paper form. The service is being positioned as an extension to e-mail, more secure than faxes and cheaper than physical overnight letter delivery.

John Stedman, senior VP and GM of HP's Appliance and Scanner Business Unit, said it simply makes good business sense to combine products, "to help customers with one of today's greatest business challenges: simplified communications."

The new service is "the closest you can get today to safe and immediate document delivery," according to Dale Hayes, VP of Electronic Commerce Marketing for UPS.

UPS Document Exchange is free for 10 days or 100 transactions. After that pricing starts at $2.50 per domestically-transferred package, with extra charges for more functionality (receipt confirmation, large file sizes, etc).
