In 2002, the very first version of OnLetterhead had 300,000 lines of code. The company had a lack of investors to go further and put Onletterhead up for sale.
A local entrepreneur in Toledo, OH purchased the company and moved its headquarters to the U.S. (Holland, OH).
He contacted investors he knew from other projects and raised over 15 million dollars over a two-year period in order to make the product market-ready. The program grew to over four million lines of code and was turned into a total business solution.
OnLetterhead, unlike competing products, is a plug-in for Microsoft Outlook. There is no cutting, copying, or pasting necessary. The graphics do not reside on a local machine taking up disk space, either. What is sent back and forth from sender to recipient is merely HTML, and the images are downloaded when the email is opened, much like a web page. The average size of an email sent via OnLetterhead, is 7K to 11K instead of 700K to 1100K, as you would expect from other HTML email products with many embedded graphics.
This product is unique because of its ability to: Use custom template designs
- Plug into Outlook with ease
- Make a seamless transition from the user's plain-text email to branded email by importing the templates via the SOAP protocol when a new email is created.
- Sell your brand on each and every email, as opposed to e-newsletters, email blasts, or other 'heavy' campaigns, that most peope ignore or delete upon receipt anyways.
Bank of America, Chrysler, Re/Max, Gartner, and over 150 Universities are just a few of our long list of clients using our product becuase it allows them to build brand image with every email sent.
Our chief programmer spent years working with Microsoft closely and developed a branding solution for everyday email with millions of dollars and over four million lines of code. This is not a service that can be easily re-created.
