A Melbourne-­based business has created the fastest, most reliable file-­sending service tailored for businesses where presentation counts.

Aptly called Digital Pigeon, the file-­sharing service is the brainchild of Melbourne friends, Stuart Clayton, an Experience Design whiz, and Dan Washusen, a former Microsoft Enterprise Developer, who wanted to eliminate the chore of sharing large files by creating an intuitive and functional service that did the hard work for you.

Dan said the idea came about after his brother, a photographer, related his frustration at sharing large files using existing systems.

“With our Experience Design and IT backgrounds, Stuart and I realised there was an opportunity to provide a file delivery tool specifically built for those that deal with large digital media files quickly, intuitively and beautifully,” Dan said.

“Speed is critical to being competitive in this fast-­‐paced business world, so we understand how valuable it can be to get media files and documents where you need them fast.

“Digital Pigeon’s file-­‐sharing service is unique in that it utilises globally-­distributed servers based in business centres in the US, Europe, SE Asia and Australia, therefore resulting in much faster uploads and downloads, up to five times faster.”

That translates to critical time savings for businesses, only taking 7 mins to send 1GB of files, if you’ve got a strong internet connection at your end.

“We also wanted to create a service that allowed people to share larger files – Digital Pigeon can send files that are double the size of our competitors, with a maximum file size of 20GB, up to 100GB for bespoke corporate plans,” Stuart said.

“On top of that, it is easy to use and there is no need to waste time babysitting your files as they send – you can start uploading and walk away, and check progress, update information and even confirm the send remotely via a mobile app and mobile site,” Stuart said.

Other Digital Pigeon features allow you to:

  • Queue up multiple sends, and be notified once sent
  • Custom brand your pages with your design, logo and colour scheme using an easy-to-­use appearance editor
  • Receive advanced tracking and notifications so you know what’s happening with your files from the moment you press send
  • Create individual profiles for everyone in your team for personalised contact and notifications direct to their inbox or phone
  • Create a branded upload page and website widget so that you can receive files from anyone by sending them to your upload page
  • Trust in bank-­grade security for file transfers (SSL Encryption) and storage.

Since it was launched in September 2013, Digital Pigeon has attracted numerous local and international clients from Channel Seven, Shell, Red Bull, Daimler Mercedes and Toyota to photography, video and audio post-­production clients such as DDB, Clemenger, Saatchi & Saatchi and Ogilvy working in the advertising and media industry.

“Digital Pigeon often gets used in major movie and TV production, including in the making of one of the Breaking Bad episodes by way of a music licensing company in LA that uses us,” Stuart said.

“It is really exciting to see how Digital Pigeon is making life easier for our clients when it comes to file sharing, attracting customers all over the world despite no major launch.

“We are the only Australian company in the sector and the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive.”

Dan said Digital Pigeon’s mission was to be the fastest and safest file sharer available.

“All of our files feature bank-­‐grade encryption in transit and all files are stored encrypted, ensuring end-­to-­end security. You can even add your own password for extra security,” Dan said.

Digital Pigeon offers a variety of plans for personal and professional use, priced from $29 a month. For a free 14-­day trial, visit www.digitalpigeon.com.au
