NEW YORK, Nov. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Siftsort.com has released the latest version of their Web platform to help people organize, access and share important family documents. And best of all, it's free. Founder Darren Conte explains how too much "important stuff" is scattered around the house and office and it needs to be centralized. "I take care of an 85-year-old uncle, and have a lot of medical records and insurance claims piling up each month -- it's overwhelming. Now it comes directly into my Siftsort.com account via fax or email, I do nothing," he admits.
A trip to Louisiana six weeks after hurricane Katrina gave him the idea to create a secure platform that every household could use to better organize important documents. "I saw people stressed trying to provide important documents to insurance companies and state agencies, and I knew there was a better way," Conte explains. "Cloud computing provides us with a lot of leverage, and if done securely, it can really make a difference," he says.
Conte and each of his team members have spent over 15 years working for financial institutions and creating secure systems. They have utilized their talents to create a platform that is now used by many of the financial institutions they used to work with. "We don't use shared cloud resources like most popular 'online storage' companies -- it's just not as secure as you might think," says Conte. "We've been audited by top-tier retail banks and brokerage firms prior to licensing our software to them, and they have chosen our platform because of our security approach -- that says a lot," Conte admits.
Best of All, It's Free
In today's economy, the company knows that consumers need to watch every penny, and that's just fine with them -- they have two plans to fit any household. The Basic Plan offers one family member profile, 2GB of storage and you can email or upload files into your account, then share them via email or fax. Premium users have unlimited storage, up to 10 family member profiles, can import contacts from Gmail or .CSV, and can share multiple files and folders using secure email links. Both plans have access to planning resources to help you get better organized or do important things like create an estate plan. Siftsort.com is also working on a wizard to help you get your paper files professionally scanned and uploaded into your account for you.
Siftsort.com is an innovative software company that helps people securely organize, access and share critical documents. The founders have comprehensive expertise creating leading Web technology and crisis management tools for the financial services sector, in accordance with New York Stock Exchange, Financial Industry Regulatory Authority and Securities and Exchange Commission regulations.
