I will be interested in following Zumbox's acceptance. As mentioned in the article, the concept has a number of advantages, for the mailer; It is a cloud solution, managed by Zumbox and is initiated at the point of print and does not necessarily involve IT; for the consumer, Zumbox provides the ability to make cloud based archives of various documents received.

However, it may be a stretch to presume Zumbox will establish a single workflow for consumers since this presumes wide acceptance of Zumbox vs. proprietary or other competing systems.
