PISCATAWAY, NJ, April 25, 2003 - EasyLink Services Corporation (NASDAQ: EASY), a leading global provider of services that power the exchange of information between enterprises, their trading communities and their customers, today announced that Quick International Courier, a leader in time-critical shipping, has chosen EasyLink's Integrated Desktop Messaging to eliminate costly analog telecommunications equipment and networks in order to facilitate immediate responses to customers.
Operating 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, Quick meets urgent shipping needs around the globe. Quick transports organs for transplant, critical parts to keep assembly lines running, and crucial time-sensitive documents. The company offers hands-on monitoring, Web-based tracking, and guaranteed on-time delivery for deadlines that once seemed impossible.
According to Marilyn Kiran, Director of Telecommunications of Quick, "EasyLink's Integrated Desktop solutions enhance the efficiency in which we are able to handle our customers' urgent needs because of the increased speed at which we are now able to send and receive critical documents."
Kiran added, "In addition to speed, security and confidentiality are of major concern because of the critical shipments we facilitate day-to-day. With EasyLink Integrated Desktop Services, when someone faxes us a document, the correspondence remains confidential because it will be delivered directly to a computer rather than to a fax machine where it can potentially be read by more than the person to whom it is addressed."
Bill Fallon, Vice President, Product Marketing, of EasyLink, noted, "By streamlining Quick International Courier's document distribution, EasyLink was able to offer the firm a competitive edge due to the speed and security in which documents are now transmitted."
The secured E-mail to Fax and Fax to E-mail solutions enable Quick's worldwide staff to electronically send and receive documents such as client communications, statements and proof of deliveries with ease and confidentiality.
