Reason #1 - Controlling Postal Expenses
In order to understand how postage costs can get out of control, it helps to understand how postage can be paid. The USPS® provides five postage payment options: stamp, prepaid (envelopes and postcards, etc), postage meter, PC Postage (Internet postage) and permit imprint.
Stamps, meter strips, and PC Postage are all 'live' postage payment methods that require prepayment. That is, you pay the postage for your shipment when you buy your stamps, 'fill' your meter machine, or print PC Postage.
Postage has already been paid when you use any of these 'live' postage payment methods to print postage on or affix postage to your package. As a result, mistakes in package preparation become more costly—when stamps are lost or stolen, changes need to be made to a shipment after meter strips have been applied, or a package with PC Postage must be held for shipment another day, you incur an expense that is hard to recoup.
Postal Package Partner helps you control postage expenses in part because no postage is paid until your mail is processed by the USPS. This allows mistakes in package preparation to be corrected without wasting postage or paying for postage a second time.
Reason #2 - Elimination of Manual Labor using Automation
Click-and-Ship is a USPS solution that provides a free, online shipping solution using Commercial Base rates. It's adequate when shipping 1 to 10 domestic or international packages per day. Likewise, Endicia and Stamps.com are well-designed products for businesses doing lower volume mailings, including mailings larger than Click-and-Ship can reasonably handle.
For businesses shipping 50 to 50,000 packages per day, the ability to scale up package processing through the automation of package shipment labor is critical - work that Postal Package Partner is specifically designed to perform. PC Postage solutions work great at low volumes, but they aren't designed to seamlessly integrate with your systems and take on the before-shipment and after-shipment automated processing many mailers require - things Postal Package Partner is designed for.
Reason #3 - Performance and Reliability of an On-Premise Solution
Although Postal Package Partner must have access to the Internet to send its SSF files to the USPS, the rest of the time no connectivity is needed (unless GSS International Manifesting is used). This product is self-contained and installed on your network for maximum performance and reliability whether you are shipping 50 packages per day or 5000!
Reason #4 - Optional eVS™ Support
Postal Package Partner can support the USPS’s electronic manifesting and acceptance program eVS. This program is the fastest and most efficient way to so do postage payment and package induction.
