CHICAGO, Dec. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- A product that can evoke an "aah" of satisfaction from its users is truly a gem. SafelyFiled is one of those gems.
A cloud-based innovation, SafelyFiled.com, organizes, stores and retrieves important documents in paper or digital form. It is the private secretary that everyone wishes they could have, enabling families to know where their information can easily be found and thus have the peace of mind everyone deserves.
"We started to realize how many times we put our insurance policies, birth certificates or even children's immunization records some place we considered special, someplace we'd always remember, and then we couldn't find them when we needed them," said Mark Snow, SafelyFiled CEO. "With our product, you always know where documents are. They are secure and easily located."
Snow is a founding executive of SafelyFiled. He is a lawyer and has been a founding executive of four earlier start-ups.
SafelyFiled enables users to store digital documents and images of paper documents. They are neatly stored in labeled, user-chosen folders such as "Estate Planning," "Taxes" or "Personal." Even if the documents were stored years ago and are only vaguely remembered, a user can find them with the site's search function. Furthermore, because some documents, such as birth certificates, wills and passports still need to be in paper form, details about where original paper documents are located can be easily attached to the stored image.
SafelyFiled is a perfect way to get organized -- something many of us think about as the New Year approaches.
The basic service for SafelyFiled is $48 per year. Users can upload and store 1,000 documents, including photos. Accounts with more than 1,000 documents cost an additional $36 per year per 1,000 documents. Users can also share all, some or only one or their documents with anybody they want. There is no limit on the number of people to whom they can give access to their account. They can also take away access privileges at any time, and do so with just a mouse click.
Uploading documents can be done via a home computer or with the companion iPhone app, "SafelyScan." You can even get other people to upload for you.
"SafelyFiled allows you to give access to your account to your insurance agent, your tax accountant or your lawyer," said SafelyFiled COO John Dore, an insurance executive with over 35 years of experience. "They can upload your documents that they prepared. You can give them upload privileges to your account for just a couple of weeks, and then lock them out until the next year. And the stored documents are in a secure location and always backed up. You can even send yourself a reminder through SafelyFiled about when a warranty is about to expire or a payment is due."
SafelyFiled was developed with security as the top priority. All documents are encrypted – both when stored and when transmitted to a computer or mobile device. Susan Hinrichs, PhD, who lectures on computer security at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, is SafelyFiled's Chief Engineer and created SafelyFiled's highly secure, yet easy-to-use system.
In addition to SafelyFiled's iPhone app called "SafelyScan", SafelyFiled will soon be introducing additional scanning apps for other operating systems. In 2013 SafelyFiled will introduce a full smart phone app. A free 14-day trial is available to anyone who visits www.SafelyFiled.com.

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization). In our opinion, the challenges stem from the technology diversity at each stage of the data pipeline as well as the lack of process around the analysis.
