YouSendIt, Inc. announced the acquisitions of Attassa, an email collaboration company, and Zosh, an e-signature provider, for undisclosed amounts. YouSendIt will acquire the technology and personnel of the companies.
Founded in 2007, Attassa created a framework and software development kit (SDK) that allows the integration of existing web applications as plug-ins into Microsoft Outlook. Through these SDKs, Attassa introduced a series of file-sharing, synchronization, and backup utilities for Outlook. Attassa also developed an iPhone application that synchronizes users' email from Outlook and webmail servers.
Zosh provides e-signature services that allow users to view, fill, sign, and transmit documents from a mobile phone. Zosh's sign-with-your-finger signature tool eliminates the steps of traditional print, sign, and fax solutions. Launched in March 2010, the company won the DEMOgod award at DEMO Spring 2010 for the Mobile category.
