Manilla Surpasses Delivery of 15 Million Bills and Statements to Users

Consumers Increase Use of the Manilla Digital Mailbox Service Across Web, Tablet and Mobile Devices

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Sep 18, 2013) - Manilla, the leading, free and secure digital mailbox service that allows consumers to manage their bills and other personal accounts on desktop, tablet and mobile devices, today announced that it has delivered more than 15 million bills and statements across its platform since its launch in February 2012. This milestone further establishes Manilla as the nation's leading digital mailbox service and a lower-cost and timelier alternative to physical postal mail.

"Having delivered 15 million bills and statements demonstrates that consumers are seeking an alternative to physical mail that is available on any device and has the benefits of timely reminders, a secure archive and control over what gets delivered," said Jim Schinella, chief executive officer of Manilla. "It also demonstrates that businesses are changing and beginning to take action to eliminate the high cost of paper and postage while opting for the higher-performing marketing and communications platforms available through digital mail. As the U.S. population becomes more digital and mobile, consumers expect a digital service that allows them to manage bills and accounts all in one place. Manilla is that solution. By receiving their mail through Manilla, our users avoid late fees, become more organized, and receive more complete documents almost a week before they would through the Postal Service."

Manilla's platform provides convenient, secure online access to all household accounts and services provided by more than 3,500 businesses. The free service helps consumers manage all of their household accounts, including financial accounts, utilities, subscriptions, daily deals and travel rewards programs, all through Manilla.com or via the highly rated Manilla Android or iOS mobile apps.

In addition to helping consumers manage their lives, Manilla also helps businesses more deeply engage with their customers, as shown by recent Manilla data. The data revealed that Manilla also increases traffic, drives engagement and increases mobile downloads. Manilla also provides upsell and cross-sell opportunities for partners in an environment that is completely protected from competitors. Manilla has previously announced mailing partner relationships with some of the largest companies in the U.S., including AT&T, DIRECTV, Citi, Comcast and others.

Manilla's business partners also benefit from their customers receiving their bills and statements through Manilla. U.S. businesses spend 70 cents to $1 to print, collate, and mail every bill and statement. Manilla's efficient solution helps significantly reduce the traditional paper mailing costs to businesses.
