Mailpiece Quality Control Training Can Reduce Postage Costs and Improve Product Deliverability
Chanhassen, MN (July 22, 2002) — The Instant Web Companies (IWCO) announced today that 25 of its mail services employees have received Mailpiece Quality Control (MQC) Certification from the United States Postal Service (USPS).
The USPS developed MQC training to provide additional education to mailers, printers and mailing services to ensure that mailpieces meet the USPS goal of 100 percent automation compatibility. Meeting USPS regulations can significantly reduce postage costs and improve product deliverability. Plus, mailers who are knowledgeable of automation requirements can take advantage of automation discounts, further reducing mailing costs.
To qualify for certification, employees attended a 20-hour, five-day training session held on site at IWCO’s Chanhassen mailing facility. Training was coordinated through the cooperation of the Printing Industry of Minnesota Education Foundation and was attended by employees from all areas of the company including account managers, creative services, job planning and estimating. At the end of training, attendees took a special 100-question certification exam.
"IWCO is proud to have 25 members of our mail services team certified as Mailpiece Quality Control Specialists," said Kurt Ruppel, IWCO Corporate Training Manager. "IWCO is committed to supplying customers expert advice to create powerful, cost-effective mailing programs in compliance with all USPS regulations. Our customers will benefit from dramatic postage savings and faster time to market."
