The following announcement was made at RootsTech today:
Forever, Inc. announces that it now supports PDF documents at Forever.com to help families save their memories for generations.
(SALT LAKE CITY) February 4, 2016 – Forever, Inc., the complete memory-keeping solution where genealogists, moms and other family historians collect, curate, and celebrate their memories now and for generations, is pleased to announce that it has launched PDF document functionality across their entire platform of products and services. Forever made the announcement at RootsTech 2016, which is the largest family history conference in the world and is being held at the Salt Palace in Salt Lake City, Utah from Feb. 3-6, 2016.
“Our ability to support documents is a significant addition to the Forever platform,” said Glen Meakem, Forever Founder & CEO. “This development proves that we are becoming a complete memory-keeping solution, one that empowers users to tell life’s stories for generations.”
The new functionality enables users to save and share valuable family documents, such as genealogical records, family trees, birth certificates, baptismal certificates, and marriage licenses, all in their permanent digital homes at Forever.com. Users can also protect private and personal documents, such as financial records, legal contracts, and private correspondence.
While speaking to a group of RootsTech attendees, Meakem said, “Imagine writing letters for your children or grandchildren to read many years into the future. Perhaps those letters are congratulatory notes meant to be delivered during events to come, such as graduations, weddings, or anniversaries. Or perhaps those letters are reminders of important family values, traditions, or beliefs. Forever’s powerful platform of products and services enables you to choose how and when you share important family memories and personal content with others, and Forever’s patent-pending guarantee ensures that you can leave a legacy that speaks for generations. Whether you choose to share your documents with others, or keep them private, you can rest easy knowing that they will be protected for many, many years to come.
The company plans to add support for video later in 2016.
Forever, Inc. offers the world’s first and only guaranteed permanent online media storage and sharing service, which is backed by the patent-pending Forever Guarantee. Forever was founded and is led by Glen Meakem, previous Founder and CEO of the highly successful business-to-business e-commerce company, FreeMarkets, Inc. Forever provides a permanent, secure, trustworthy place in the internet cloud – a permanent digital home with a complete set of memory keeping services – where moms and families can collect, curate, celebrate and permanently save their precious personal and family memories. The company offers highly secure, triple backed up cloud storage, with encryption of critical locator data. It also offers award winning mobile apps for iOS and Android that automatically back up to member accounts at www.forever.com, as well as web and desktop apps so customers can upload, access, edit, organize, and protect their content from virtually any device. Forever guarantees customers who buy “permanent sharable storage” that their photos and memories will be saved for their lifetimes plus 100 years with the goal of many generations beyond. The company can make this guarantee because a large portion of the money customers pay for “permanent storage” is deposited into the Forever Guarantee Fund, a restricted fund that acts like a permanent endowment or reserve, with earnings paying for storage, bandwidth, and migration to new file formats for generations into the future.
The company also offers Forever Artisan, the leading digital desktop scrapbooking software, and Forever Historian — photo organization and management software, as well as Forever digital art, desktop uploader (Forever Valet), digital photo project design applications (such as Forever Projects), printing, photo scanning and media conversion services.
