Skimbox. Smart Email for Busy People
What does it do?
Skimbox is an enterprise mail app that uses smart technology to reduce email overload. Important email goes in your mainbox; everything else goes in skimbox. Skimbox is available on iOS for Gmail and Microsoft Exchange.
Why do we need it?
You need it if you’ve ever missed an important email. You need it if you’ve ever made a mental note to respond to an important email, and then forgot to do so. Basically, you need it if you spend more time on email than you’d like.
Who is it for?
People who get a high volume of emails, particularly if many of them do not require response. Particularly, in our research, we’ve found that C-levels, lawyers, IT administrators, sales leads, and VCs tend to fit this profile.
What makes it stand out from the crowd?
In three words: intelligent pre-sorting. In more: because the Skimbox classifier bases its classification on you and you alone, you don’t have to set up any rules, and your email preferences can change as much as you’d like. It’s also the only enterprise mail app that, well, doesn’t feel like an enterprise mail app.
Is it secure?
Skimbox uses current security best practices to protect your email. Organizations with sensitive data can run Skimbox inside the firewall. For hosted Skimbox, w use HTTP over Secure Socket Layers (aka HTTPS) to encrypt the transmission of your emails, and store your emails in a best practice Mongo database hosted by MongoHQ.
We are working with select customers to roll out an on-premise version of Skimbox.
On the user side, we’re working to add intelligent, contextual grouping of messages and basic usage and interaction analytics. We’re also working on a comprehensive set of IT controls for administrators.
