What it does: Most startups often find it challenging to manage their business due to a lack of permanent address. As a result, they lose their mail and packages and often fail to deposit checks on time. Stable overcomes this problem by providing a virtual mailroom and address for startups that help them manage their business and its activities worldwide. With Stable, a company gets a unique address that they may use to engage with vendors, the government, and the IRS.
Stable also digitizes and manages physical mail. It helps scan and upload physical mails and forward any packages worldwide. It also stores the packages for up to 30 days and deposits received checks on behalf of the startup.
How it started: Stable is the idea of two talented individuals, Sara Ahmad (CEO) and Collin Pham (CTO).
Sarah graduated from Northwestern University, followed by experience in many different organizations, such as LifeLink and Hazel Technologies. She also launched an app, HotPlate, in 2016, gaining lots of experience in UX engineering.
Collin Pham is also a graduate of Northwestern University with prior work experience in Splitzee, AGC Partners, and Granular. Both the founders launched Stable in Delaware for businesses located in the area. This has helped them to support businesses in the region and get these startups a permanent address.
Other than its strong leadership team, Stable is also backed by top-tier investors. The list includes Jack Altman from Lattice, Holly Liu from Kabam, and Chris Erickson from Apartment List.
How it works: As of now, Stable has created 1000 plus addresses for different modern companies. It does so by establishing a permanent address for the company's headquarters, so management becomes convenient. Stable also provides the facility of the virtual mailbox.
A virtual mailbox secures all packages and mail before delivering them to an address. Stable scans the physical mail received for quick viewing and then forwards it as required. The platform also delivers all mail to a permanent address and categorizes all scanned files and documents using smart tagging.
Stable is well-integrated with many tools such as Slack and Dropbox. This enables users to push or forward documents in a most used tool or application.
The platform gives its customers a user-friendly and intuitive dashboard. The dashboard lets startups view their business address conveniently and explore an amazing and well-organized website.
There are mailbox automations as well. These features save time by allowing companies to put their mail on autopilot.
Teams can receive all the mail directly on Slack for seamless collaboration. Further, there is an open and scan automation feature for automatic scanning and opening mail. Custom automations are also available to design powerful workflows using modern integrations and APIs.
Why it's interesting: One of the great qualities of Stable is that it empowers businesses by helping them to get their permanent address. It also provides them with an identity to manage their mail and packages from anywhere in the world.
Stable believes in providing virtual experiences to all its customers, enabling them to overcome challenges that may arise through distances. Stable is pretty convenient to use. The platform doesn't create any complications and provides services to even those who lack experience in building a virtual identity.
