What is the history and popularity of the app?

Doxo was founded in 2008 by Roger Parks, Mark Goris and Steven Shivers. The application was designed to allow the average internet user to go paperless. Less paper used would amount to less cost for businesses, which would otherwise have to purchase postage, printing services and stationary. The current version of Doxo has partnered with a number of national and local service providers so users can easily retrieve invoices, bills and other documents through their Doxo account. The application has undergone a few improvements, including the addition of file and document grouping which was introduced in September of 2011.

What are the differences to other apps?

Doxo is appealing to both users and businesses because it makes life easier (and less expensive) for both. Users can reduce paper clutter at home and keep all of their important documents and usernames in one accessible place. Businesses can reduce overhead by eliminating the need to print and send every invoice. The application streamlines the process by allowing users to make online bill payments directly from their Doxo account. Users can also retrieve payment receipts. Although the folder system is rather simple, it offers all the features the average person could want when sorting out their bills and other household documents.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

Doxo retains a very professional, yet inviting appearance. The user interface is designed to allow the average person to sort all of their documents quickly and painlessly. The color scheme favors relaxed blue and hints of green, which give it a little personality without over doing it. Items are listed with attractive icons, dates and names for easy sorting. The entire document storage and sorting process is made much easier thanks to Doxo’s clean design and clutter free interface.

How does the registration process work?

A new user can create a Doxo account by clicking one of the two “Sign Up” buttons found on the homepage. The registration form asks the user to provide a username, password, email address and zip code as well as a secret question and answer. The user must also check the small box near the bottom of the form to confirm their agreement with the Doxo terms of service. After clicking the blue “Sign Up” button, the user is advised that an email will be sent to the address they provided with instructions. The user must access the email to complete registration and begin using Doxo.

What does it cost to use the application?

Doxo entices new users with its highly economical price. All users can create an account and add documents for free. There are no subscription fees and all users are given access to all current features. The site explains that by saving businesses money, Doxo is able to keep its services free for the consumer. This creates a win-win situation for both the business partnering with Doxo and the consumer using the application to sort their documents.

Who would you recommend the application to?
