DEMO: Zosh replaces the routine of print/sign/fax with a mobile solution

Zosh is one of 65 products chosen by VentureBeat to launch at the DEMO Spring 2010 event taking place this week. The companies do pay a fee to present, but our coverage of them remains objective.

Gartner expects the value of  the mobile Internet to surpass the desktop version in three years. But the world of paperwork hasn’t kept up.

I, for one, still need to print out, sign, and then fax in paperwork to get paid by some of the publishers I work for. Then they lose the paperwork. Here’s the chief executive, Joshua Kerr, demonstrating live at DEMO that we don’t need our fax machines anymore.

Zosh is described as a mobile document execution platform by its maker, ABJK NewCo. How it stands out is that Zosh doesn’t require both parties involved to make the leap from analog paperwork and faxes to digital signatures and documents. That enables Zosh to work its fingers into more workplaces.

One little-cited advantage to digital paperwork is that it’s easy to search. For example, a magazine I write for could have found my lost direct deposit paperwork in seconds by searching email, rather than taking weeks to fish my fax out of the company’s huge paper file folders.

Austin-based ABJK NewCo is self-funded by its co-founders.
