SAN FRANCISCO, May 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — FileThis, the digital mailbox and filing service that gives consumers full ownership of their documents, is accelerating its growth.
During its 18-month beta test, FileThis delivered two million online statements, bills and documents to its users. Since emerging from beta in February 2014, FileThis has delivered one million documents in just three months, while doubling its user base.
As Manilla’s closing is another blow to an already consolidating bill pay market, FileThis is poised to continue its growth due to its unique focus and business model, connecting users to all of their personal accounts for a small monthly fee. “A huge part of our success is that FileThis helps users to control all their online documents, not just bills,” says FileThis Founder and CEO Brian Berson. “Our goal is to give consumers full control over their important documents. This includes Explanation of Benefits (EoBs) from their health insurances as well as any tax related documents that get issued at the end of the year.”
The secure FileThis document platform automatically gathers online statements, bills and other documents from companies like American Express, AT&T, Bank of America, Chase, Comcast, PayPal, United Healthcare, Verizon, and many more without requiring consumers to repeatedly log in to each vendor site individually.
“What sets us further apart from others is the fact that we don’t mine or sell any personally identifiable data to third-parties. As we believe that our user’s data belongs to them, FileThis delivers their documents to a storage destination of their choice. That could be their preferred cloud services, including Evernote, Google Drive, the FileThis Cloud, or even their computer,” Berson explains. “Our business model is based on these principles. Consumers can try FileThis for free and upgrade for a small monthly fee to control more documents.”

With FileThis Cloud as storage destination, users can also add downloaded documents to the FileThis drop folder on their Mac or PC. FileThis automatically uploads, tags, and organizes all documents as fully searchable PDF documents in a digital file cabinet. Using the FileThis iOS app, and soon to be released Android app, users can access their documents instantly no matter where they are.
A Macworld “Best of Show 2012” winner, FileThis is the easy-to-use portal that safely fetches and organizes any and all important documents, including bills, bank statements, medical records, insurance policies, and more, eliminating paper waste and the need for a filing cabinet.
