Email hasn’t changed much over the last couple of decades, except for the fact that more people are using it than ever before, every single day. Now, thanks to breakthrough technology, email is finally evolving into its next incarnation: Interactive Email, and we at ActivePath are excited to develop this technology to bring users the best, most efficient, interesting and engaging email experience possible, all without ever leaving their inbox.
Until now, email as we know it contained nothing more than text and images, but with our free downloadable email add-on, ActiveMail, email is transformed into an interactive experience. Not only does ActiveMail finally make possible the display of a wide variety if rich-media (including video) right inside the email, but it also endows senders of marketing emails with instant brand recognition and authenticity thanks to our Inbox Branding feature, which displays the sender’s icon beside his email in the inbox.
As it turns out, however, we are not alone in our mission to bring interactive email to the world. PowerInbox, a cool company that develops a huge range of email apps designed to let you perform actions inside the email itself – also believes that the next generation of email will be collaborative, real-time, and interactive.
It seemed logical, therefore, for ActivePath and PowerInbox to combine their passion, technological expertise and funding in order to forge forward as the leading force behind the introduction of Interactive Email to inboxes everywhere, and we’re excited to announce our merger today.
