Zevrix Solutions’ File Courier is a digital delivery system that lets you send files to FTP and local destinations automatically. With a little initial setup, sending files is a matter of drag-and-drop. File Courier will ask you to select a pre-defined destination and an e-mail notification template (if desired) and off goes the file.
If your workflow is well-structured, you can create codes and then name your files so that the transfer is handled automatically, without having to manually choose a destination!
File Courier can generate and e-mail low-res PDF versions of your files, if desired, and keeps a detailed history log of deliveries.
It’s also incredibly affordable, at just $29.95.
Here are its key features:
- Send files/folders to FTP and locally
- Automatic email notifications
- Variable email templates
- Deliver files by e-mail
- Create lo-res PDF automatically and attach to e-mail
- Attach files from specific subfolder to e-mail
- Automatic .zip/.dmg compression
- Encrypt disk images with passwords
- Detailed history of all deliveries
- Destination codes for automatic delivery
