Introducing: An FTP Replacement for Real World Professionals

At eTransmittal™, we are committed to providing a great user experience through software that's easy to use, innovative, and provide secure file transfer. Our goal is to continually develop eTransmittal™ to be the best file transfer program.

How eTransmittal Came To Be

bWERX programmers initially developed the eTransmittal™ document transfer and management tool for a client – a mid-sized engineering firm – that desperately needed a technology tool to help them send and manage roughly 400 drawings per month. The firm was using a manual FTP site to send documents. And because FTP sites have no tracking functions, this engineering firm was handling document tracking using extraordinarily complicated Excel spreadsheets that were managed by each project manager. "It made my head hurt just looking at how they were trying to track everything manually," recalled bWERX President Justin Culver.

To help this client streamline its operations, Culver and bWERX programmers developed the first prototype of eTransmittal. Once it was up and running, other companies coming into contact with the engineering company started asking if they could use eTransmittal™ for their document transmission and document management needs. When this started happening frequently, it became clear that the product was needed by many other organizations, and thus, eTransmittal™ was "product-ized" and re-developed as a Web-based application for wider use.

How We Give Back

In addition to its business successes, bWERX also has a corporate policy of giving 15% of its profits annually to a variety of non-profit organizations that help meet practical needs such as food, shelter, and medical supplies for people worldwide. Justin Culver, bWERX's president, founder, and chief executive officer, actively directs these philanthropic activities, and has traveled the world as part of humanitarian relief efforts.

Monies are donated to non-profit groups that help people meet practical needs throughout the world…everything from helping create sustainable food and medical supplies to eyeglasses and housing. In the time that he's been doing humanitarian work, Culver has traveled to Singapore, South Africa, Thailand, India, Sri Lanka, and Mexico to provide general humanitarian aid, or aid in response to a natural disaster.

For example, after the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake that seismographs registered between 9.1 and 9.3 in magnitude (the second largest earthquake ever recorded), a series of deadly tsunamis devastated the coastlines of most landmasses bordering the Indian Ocean, killing close to a quarter of a million people in 14 countries, including Indonesia, Sri Lanka, India, and Thailand. A worldwide humanitarian response yielded more than $7 billion in humanitarian aid, and Culver and his colleagues were one of the many groups that traveled to these ravaged countries and helped provide food and medical supplies. In another instance, Culver was part of a team that traveled to India and Sri Lanka, and provided eyeglasses for children and adults with poor eyesight. Culver also hosted a New Orleans family that was displaced in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Culver is still in contact with the family that he fostered.
