Docsaway provides a reliable and fast service and can save costs and users have greater control over the look and feel of their printed communications. All mailings will be on time, within budget and secure through Docsaway’s PDF password protection.

Why did you start this company?

QiQ initially launched to print and post basic documents around the globe. L-Mail is an HTML-based solution providing the necessary tools to help turn an email into a letter. With the increasing popularity of PDF technology, we launched to provide individuals and businesses with an easy way to mail PDF documents to any address on the planet – often in an automated manner.

Was your company started on a shoestring budget or funded?

Docsaway was built using funding from our research and development budget.

Who is your competition, and what do you do better?

Our main competition includes Esker Hybrid Mail Solutions, Delivering Connections Ltd and Amnis Hybrid. Clients benefit from Docsaway in the following ways:

  • Correspondence mailed to more than 200 different countries each month from 30 worldwide locations, therefore documents can be printed closer to the recipient so that they receive quicker
  • Documents can be created with international character sets
  • Up to 40 pages can be mailed in one envelope
  • Docsaway confirms the availability of its servers from 20 worldwide locations every 5 minutes.
  • The Docsaway price includes handling, envelope, paper, ink and postage so our clients can control their spending.

Why would a small business, entrepreneur, freelancer etc use your product?

The Docsaway’s service not only offers not only a more personal form of communication, but it is also more efficient and saves money. While many believe email is the latest and most effective form of communication, consider this: with an estimated 247 billion emails sent per day, your chances of getting noticed are not too high, especially when contending with the fact that 80 per cent of them are spam.

Snail mail is far more than a hastily written message online; people appreciate the time that has been taken, so it reaches places email cannot and has physical persistence. Docsaway provides the vehicle to make that impression.

It is also a way of outsourcing some essential business activities so our clients can spend more time on other pressing matters.

How could you effectively use these tools?

Docsaway’s tools enable a client to turn electronic PDF communications into print-based media. It may be a retro way to communicate with the advent of email and social media, however many business owners appreciate the effort of printed communication. Another benefit is clients can print and post correspondence from a number of locations around the world.
