This Intelligent Mail barcode webinar will explore these questions:

  • Should your organization be making this move now?
  • What will be required in order to be ready in January?
  • What should you do to be ready in time?

Learn about the differences between Basic-Service and Full-Service Intelligent Mail, and find out how to plan for the transition in this webinar.

Why make the change now?

You’ll need time to make the transition – so it’s best to start a few months in advance so that you get you’ve tested your mailings and they are compliant.

In addition, there are great advantages – including additional savings – to adapting the Full-Service IMb sooner rather than later.  With Full-Service, you have the ability to know:

  • Exactly when the USPS has custody of each individual mail piece
  • When is the mail being delivered
  • How many days it took for delivery
  • If the mail delivered as addressed
  • Which pieces were forwarded or returned
  • Whose remittance is in the mail

As you can see by the depth and breadth of this list, the IMb can help with everything from cash flow visibility to staffing requirements, inventory management, and cost savings for other internal processes.
