Company seeks combine "snail" mail and e-mail

John Cook, a reporter for the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, writes in his Venture Capital Notebook column, that a local company, DocumentCommand, is looking to combine traditional and electronic mail.

Cook writes, "It is doing this by transforming incoming mail into electronic formats, allowing customers to access and view their mail over the Internet."

He quotes DocumentCommand Chief Executive Ron Wiener as saying, "When you are a road warrior out at a conference, you have eFax, you have your cell phone, you have your voice mail, you have e-mail. But you still have to go back to a desk to get your postal mail. You still have one analog tether in your communications world."

DocumentCommand plans to roll out addresses for seven other U.S. cities -- including Seattle, New York, Los Angeles and Chicago -- as it sets up partnerships with mail-sorting facilities in the next nine months.
