YouSendIt Extends PC Mall's Microsoft Collaboration Portfolio

PC Mall, a leading value-added direct marketer of technology products, services and solutions to businesses, government, educational institutions and individual consumers, selected YouSendIt to round out its portfolio of cloud solutions. It was looking for a partner that could provide a cloud application its customers could use to securely collaborate on documents beyond company firewalls.

"Our customers rely on us to carry only the best providers in each category, and they are asking for cloud-based solutions that are easy to use and increase user productivity," said Gertrud Pillay, Vice President Category Marketing of a subsidiary of PC Mall. "YouSendIt's brand name is trusted and respected, which makes it an easy sell. Plus, it's a natural extension to our popular Microsoft collaboration offerings including Exchange and Active Directory."

As part of its business content collaboration services, YouSendIt offloads attachments from Microsoft Exchange servers, preventing storage growth and improving performance while reducing costs and IT security risks. YouSendIt's Exchange solution is easy to deploy and manage for IT and intuitive for end users. Seamless integration of YouSendIt with Exchange enables users to securely send large files without changing the way they currently work today. YouSendIt's integrated solution allows users to:

  • Send files of any size through Exchange emails using an Outlook plugin.
  • Stop managing their inbox to a fixed size limit.
  • Eliminate bounce-backs when emailing large files.
  • Automatically send files through YouSendIt's cloud service when attachments are larger than a pre-selected size.

Jacobsohn to Grow Channel Partnerships

Jacobsohn brings a proven track record of spurring rapid channel sales growth on behalf of cloud computing companies to YouSendIt. He was previously vice president of channel management at software-as-a-service talent management solutions provider Cornerstone OnDemand. Company revenues grew to $72 million from $7 million in his four years at the company. Prior to Cornerstone OnDemand, Jacobsohn was vice president of sales and partner development at consumer healthcare spending company WageWorks, which grew 1,802 percent in three years while Jacobsohn was there.

"YouSendIt has all of the elements of a company poised for a rapid ascent," said Jacobsohn.
