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 - Flexibility based on mail volume
While most of our customers' shipment volumes routinely meet USPS® daily minimums for commercial rates (50 pounds or 200 pieces), some days they fall below those minimums. On those days, Postal Package Partner allows them to use meter strips from their postage meter, or take advantage of our interfaces to Endicia and (soon) Stamps.com. This provides a streamlined solution with a single workflow that keeps their shipping and customer info in one place - Postal Package Partner. While giving you the flexibility of dropping back to simpler solutions designed for low mailing volumes, Postal Package Partner allows you to retain the benefits of automation, imports, exports and notification built into Postal Package Partner, including access to cheaper Commercial Plus postage rates available when mailing volume increases.
