The modern workforce has more flexibility than ever before. These days, it only takes a smartphone and internet access to enable remote work from anywhere in the world. But without regular access to postal mail, some individuals may feel held back from being truly location independent. Remote workers, digital nomads, and expats need a simple and reliable way to receive and manage their mail while they live and travel abroad.
Introducing MailBox and MailRoom Plans
Managing postal mail while away from your mailbox or outside of a traditional office setting can be time-consuming, labor-intensive, and inconvenient. That’s why we’re announcing new MailBox plans for individuals and small businesses who need a reliable and straightforward virtual mailbox service. We’ve also improved our MailRoom plans, designed for businesses that receive a higher volume of postal mail or that receive mail for a large number of employees.
As a leading solution for virtual mail for over a decade, Earth Class Mail has served over 50,000 customers and is well-positioned to meet the needs of individuals and businesses looking for a different way to access postal mail. We provide a proven, modern option for managing postal mail services. With our new plans, you’ll get a permanent U.S. address, 24/7 digital access to your critical documents, and complete freedom from a physical location.
The modern workforce values the freedom to work from anywhere
In the last decade, technology advances in cloud computing have enabled a modern workforce—one that works from home, out of coworking spaces, from another country, or an RV on the open road. Many companies, employees, freelancers, and individuals have embraced the agility that comes with remote work.
While digital nomads and remote workers no longer need to be tied to a single location, most still need a way to receive and manage their postal mail. Likewise, business travelers, RVers, and others without frequent access to a permanent address need reliable and secure access to their mail while traveling or abroad.
Our new MailBox plans give all individuals the freedom to manage their postal mail from anywhere in the world, any time they want. Plans also offer mail forwarding, so that you can ship packages to international destinations without the hassle. Best of all, MailBox plans provide the same high-quality service that our business customers expect, all at a price that makes sense for individuals. That means the same high-resolution, searchable PDFs; the same ability to integrate with other apps; and the same stringent security measures. MailRoom plans will continue to empower businesses and enterprises to operate their businesses remotely, without having to worry about access to postal mail.
Virtual mailboxes during a pandemic
We have watched the trend toward remote work develop over the last decade—particularly as it has accelerated in the last five years. When we began work on new subscription offerings to meet this demand earlier this year, we could not have anticipated just how relevant and important they would become in a few short months.
Like many businesses in the United States impacted by the COVID-19 crisis, we had to look closely at our operations and move quickly to ensure that we could provide a safe work environment for our employees as well as continuous service to our customers. The crisis significantly changed the landscape of remote work, and we’ve been both fortunate and proud to provide an essential service during this time. We have been here to serve businesses across the world that were forced to close their doors by enabling them to continue to receive and manage their postal mail virtually.
Through this time, we’ve become increasingly aware of the need for services like ours. Some individuals and businesses using remote services now will return to more traditional models of work in the future. Others will continue to operate remotely. We’re in uncharted territory, and even businesses that do return to a traditional office setting may want to retain the option to transition to a remote model if they need to do so quickly.
In these uncertain times, one thing is clear: the ability to receive postal mail from anywhere, anytime, is increasingly important for both businesses and individuals embracing remote life. We’re here to make it easy.
