Founded in 2007, Attassa has created a framework and software development kit (SDK) that allows the rich integration of existing Web applications as plug-ins into Microsoft Outlook.

Zosh provides easy to use e-signature services that allow users to view, fill, sign and transmit documents from a mobile phone.
