Eric Gold our CEO founded e-courier® in 2004. We are a Canadian company with our head office in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia.
The brains behind the development and design of e-courier.ca are Eric Gold and Tom Lockhart who are two highly experienced, skilled and award winning engineers that previously worked at the world class companies MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates (Aerospace) and Motorola (Telecommunications). Tom previously graduated from (MIT) in Electrical Engineering and did his Masters degree in Computer Science at (UBC). In his career Tom has authored 11 USPTO patents.
Back in 2004 we were way ahead of our time, we knew that email was not secure and the Internet was not safe, so our focus was to develop a very powerful and easy to use secure alternative to email that runs in the cloud and is designed for professionals and their clients without having the need to install software. Our primary goal was to protect and encrypt sensitive information while providing features that are not available in email with the objective to enhance work productivity. Some of these innovative features included the ability to recall messages and or files sent in error, expire messages and file attachments and track the delivery status of your messages and files. These innovative digital tracking features are similar to package tracking that are used by traditional courier companies. This led to our name E-COURIER.CA and our coining of the word E-PACKAGE, which is effectively equivalent to an email, albeit an encrypted email that contains messages and or files that can be tracked by the sender.
Our software philosophy is simple, Keep It Simple Sam (KISS Principle) but provide subtle power and very good security. This means easy to use user interfaces that are not cluttered with icons and can easily be navigated. This has worked for our customers and we are confident it will work for you.
