Hearst's Manilla Introduces Document Upload Feature

Manilla Users Can Now Upload Important Documents to Manilla Web Service for Free

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 04/09/14 -- 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 the introduction of Document Upload, a new feature that allows Manilla users to upload important documents to the Manilla service on the Web.

"Manilla's organizational features were built to help busy people save time and money," said Jim Schinella, CEO of Manilla. "The new Document Upload tool is a logical feature for the Manilla service, which is already storing a wide variety of bills and financial and brokerage statements. Our users have been asking to manage more of their critical information on Manilla, which is becoming the essential go-to service for staying on top of bills, travel programs, health records and all services that require people to track information online. We are excited to provide this utility to our users because we know they will use it."

Manilla users can already use the free and secure Manilla service to:

  • Manage everything in one place; customers can choose from more than 4,000 companies available on the service
  • Set automatic bill reminders to avoid paying late fees
  • Use one password to automatically log into accounts, rather than having to remember multiple usernames and passwords
  • Store bills and statements for free to reduce paper clutter
  • Use Bill Share to securely collaborate on bill and account management with parents, roommates, accountants and spouses
  • New Document Upload feature allows users to upload .jpg, .png, .gif, .pdf and .txt files through the Web interface; mobile photo upload coming soon

Businesses value the opportunities and benefits that come with partnering with Manilla. Data and recent user surveys have consistently shown that Manilla users have higher advertising click-through rates and they more frequently visit businesses they have added to their Manilla account. These customers also buy more and engage more often with the brand.

The Manilla service provides partner companies with new opportunities for customer engagement, increased up-sell opportunities, and increased online account registrations in a highly targeted, paperless environment that is protected from competitive advertising.

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee A...

Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the bene...
Using new techniques of information modeling, indexing, and processing, new cloud-based systems can support cloud-based workloads previously not possible for high-throughput insurance, banking, and case-based applications. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, John Newton, CTO, Founder and Chairman of Alfresco, described how to scale cloud-based content management repositories to store, manage, and retrieve billions of documents and related information with fast and linear scalability. He addresse...
The now mainstream platform changes stemming from the first Internet boom brought many changes but didn’t really change the basic relationship between servers and the applications running on them. In fact, that was sort of the point. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Gordon Haff, senior cloud strategy marketing and evangelism manager at Red Hat, will discuss how today’s workloads require a new model and a new platform for development and execution. The platform must handle a wide range of rec...

Discussions of cloud computing have evolved in recent years from a focus on specific types of cloud, to a world of hybrid cloud, and to a world dominated by the APIs that make today's multi-cloud environments and hybrid clouds possible. In this Power Panel at 17th Cloud Expo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed the importance of customers being able to use the specific technologies they need, through environments and ecosystems that expose their APIs to make true ...
In his keynote at 19th Cloud Expo, Sheng Liang, co-founder and CEO of Rancher Labs, discussed the technological advances and new business opportunities created by the rapid adoption of containers. With the success of Amazon Web Services (AWS) and various open source technologies used to build private clouds, cloud computing has become an essential component of IT strategy. However, users continue to face challenges in implementing clouds, as older technologies evolve and newer ones like Docker c...
