This is a new feature from the Post Office that was originally slated as a requirement starting May 2009. So many mailshops and software vendors freaked out that the USPS has decided to delay that requirement for one more year. The program is alive and well, however, just not yet required.
We have been using and developing systems around the Intelligent Mail barcode since January 2008 and have had extensive experience in Planet codes before that.
Have you seen our new US Mail Tracking tools?
We are ready for this and have actually lead the way. Is your mailshop using this technology? How many other things are coming that your current mailshop is going to wait for, before learning on your project? Why do they put your mailings at risk as they “figure it out” near deadlines? It’s because most shops are reactive instead of proactive.
You deserve to be kept at the front of the direct mail revolution, not in the backseat. These new systems create dynamic advantages for the people that partner with us. What if your competition is using these advanced services and you are not? Mailing with CSG Direct ensures that you are staying at the front of the pack.
This is another core reason to work with a company that is a mailshop first, printer second. It just makes sense!
