Neopost Announces Data Management Systems for Shipping, Receiving, and Mail Accounting
Press release from the issuing company
April 21, 2005 -- Neopost, the worldwide provider of mailing, addressing, document handling and mail management systems, announces its line of data management systems, which are designed to automate labor-intensive mailroom processes and manage the flow of important data. Increasing efficiency, speed and precision while reducing mail and parcel handling costs, Neopost’s line of data management systems include Multi-Carrier Compliant, Shipping Automation, Parcel & Mail Receiving and Postal Accounting software solutions.
Neopost’s Multi-Carrier Compliant, Shipping Automation Systems allow users to process small parcel shipments with multiple commercial carriers from a single user screen on a desktop computer. Operators can compare similar services among various carriers for the most cost-effective option. Once shipments are processed, the Neopost system stores all transaction detail into a permanent archived database and can provide access to the delivery status of each shipment. With its ability to collect and convert shipping data into detailed reports, Neopost Shipping Systems provide managers with the information necessary to better manage their shipping operation and can even use historical trend information to negotiate lower rates with the transportation service providers.
NeoTrak parcel-receiving systems automate the process of receiving and tracking important package or mail deliveries from the point that they are received until delivered to the intended recipient. Delivery clerks can capture the recipient’s signature via a PDA device, which serves as an electronic proof of delivery record. All information is stored in a permanent database for quick and easy access to tracking and reporting information. Using NeoTrak, employees at their desktop computers may: access the delivery status of all of their deliveries 24/7; receive email notification from the mailroom that a parcel has been received for them to pick up; schedule mail or package pick-ups from their offices; and create alerts for the mail center to be on the lookout for important packages.
Neopost’s Postal Accounting Systems allow mailroom supervisors and mail center managers to control mailing costs by collecting and reporting all postal expenditures using an unlimited number of unique department identification codes. Neopost’s Multi-Carrier Accounting Systems also have the ability to consolidate postage usage, permitting managers to correctly report both postage and shipping costs using department ID numbers, GL codes, cost center account numbers, or law office client matter numbers. Additional accounting security can be provided by requiring operators to validate account codes prior to processing the mail or shipments. Users are able to view and print detailed reports on mailing/shipping costs for comparison against pre-established account budgets.
Neopost’s Multi-Carrier, Shipping Automation, NeoTrak Parcel Receiving and Postal/Multi-Carrier Accounting software solutions are available through Neopost’s network of more than 150 branch offices and dealer locations throughout North America. For sales information, call the customer hotline at 1-888-Neopost (636-7678), or visit www.neopostinc.com.
