With TNT Post and Mentana-Claimsoft two leading companies and de-mail
pioneers are combining their strengths. The leader in the alternative delivery
of letters on the German postal market and the subsidiary of the listed
Francotyp-Postalia Holding AG (FP) will now be working together in the area
of de-mail. The agreement that has just been reached relates to what are known
as Ident services. TNT Post will be supporting the customers of
Mentana-Claimsoft in this area.
De-mail, the electronic alternative to paper-based letters, makes it
possible to send and receive documents and messages through the Internet in
a way that ensures confidentiality and is secure, encrypted and verifiable.
Basically it works in the same way as a conventional e-mail, but with the
added feature of unequivocal identification of sender and recipient.
To use the service, de-mail users must first prove their identity by
presenting a form of identification to obtain their personal de-mail
account. Thanks to this reliable form of registration both recipient and
sender are clearly identifiable for de-mail; the digital post has legally
binding force and is, for example, suitable for correspondence with public
Mentana-Claimsoft was one of the first de-mail service providers to be
given a licence by the Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) at
Cebit 2012 in Hanover. With the de-mail portal for private customers and
SMEs and the de-mail gateway for larger companies and public authorities,
FP subsidiary Mentana-Claimsoft has a comprehensive range of services for
every type of sender.
'Now that identification procedure has been defined an important step
towards introducing de-mail Germany-wide has been taken', says Andreas
Drechsler, the managing director of Francotyp-Postalia Holding AG.
'Cooperation with TNT Post will provide us with a full network for the
identification procedure throughout Germany.' Michael Mews, the managing
director of TNT Post GmbH&Co. KG, also sees this cooperation bringing his
company a strategic advantage: 'Our expertise, efficiency and flexibility
convinced Mentana-Claimsoft to entrust us with the sensitive remit of Ident
services. For TNT Post the collaboration is a further important step
towards establishing itself in the digital communications market of the
future. After all, de-mail is creating a new communications channel that
will change and expand the communications market in the years to come.'
According to estimates, de-mail can basically be used for one third of the
17 billion letters sent each year. It is expected that ten per cent of them
will be sent by de-mail within the next three to five years. TNT Post and
Francotyp-Postalia have joined forces to take advantage of this market
