Intellareturn Is A Physical World Connection Player
Intellareturn's Append solution bridges physical mail with mobile phones. Another billion set of objects will soon get their own "barcode" and will be able to be connected to the Internet via mobile phone.
Add Intellareturn and their Append (physical world hyperlink) to the list of companies that offer Physical World Connection.
The Append service , integrates NFC and related RFID technology applications to the mail. Through its innovative Append® application, postal mailers can now interact with sent mail to view and exchange supplemental rich media and content related to a letter, envelope, postcard or package—just by waving a Near-Field Communication (NFC)-enabled mobile phone over the Intellareturn Smart Stamp®.
Intellareturn's Append® microchip-based "Smart Stamp" system links supplemental text, audio and video files to envelopes. Elliot Klein of Intellareturn Corp. declared this will one day "transform how we utilize envelopes and the postal mail." The Smart Stamp service can be sold as a book of self-adhesive labels or pre-manufactured into envelopes, taking envelope manufacturers into the wireless ecosystem with new business models to store, control and deliver rich-media content.
Business and consumer mailers will soon tap the mobile Internet's power to privately access supplemental documents, video and audio recordings—simply by waving their mobile phone or PC equipped with built-in or add-on NFC reader with a postage-sized "Electronic Stamp" on the addressable side of mailings.
Append opens the digital envelope, moving beyond static and familiar paper mail communications to integrate a rich media experience with postal mailings. Through the Intellareturn process and solution, Append securely links Internet content to bring new interactivity and digital relevance to the postal mail system—one of the biggest traditional paper communications mediums in the world.
These electronic stamps cost less than the price of a traditional first-class stamp. Intellareturn is now creating the ecosystem and standards to make this new technology and postal capability available
