SmartSoft will be presenting some of the latest features and enhancements for its postal software solution, AccuMail frameworks Mailers Edition, at the 2013 National Postal Forum. This year’s event takes place at the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco, California, from March 17-20th and SmartSoft will be located in Booth 610.
With its modern, multifunctional user interface, AccuMail frameworks Mailers Edition was designed to make the mailing process easier. It provides a full-featured, PAVE Certified mailing software solution with full support for the Intelligent Mail barcode, and a range of time-saving features, including a three-step mailing assistant, integrated Move Update processing, powerful list management tools and more. New items to be displayed at NPF include:
1. Mail Tracking Integration – integrated into the AccuMail frameworks user interface, mailers can now track their mailings using SmartSoft’s MailSpotter mail tracking service, which uses the IM Barcode to provide a comprehensive, real-time mail tracking service. Users log into their own custom-branded portal to view results via a selection of tables, maps and charts that can be easily shared with colleagues or customers. To promote the new MailSpotter integration, SmartSoft will be offering 50% off the regular price for their MailSpotter Unlimited tracking service at NPF.
2. Redesigned Label and Envelope Designer – the visual designer tool within AccuMail frameworks has been updated to be even more user-friendly and provide more control over label and envelope design. New features include a simple click-and drag feature that makes it easier to move individual elements around when creating designs, a multiple Undo and Redo feature, the ability to add indicia to existing labels, expanded Optional Endorsement Line options, and much more.
“The Intelligent Mail barcode has had a huge impact on our industry and will continue to do so in the coming years,” said Michael Shroyer, President of SmartSoft. “In some cases change can be seen as a negative, but we feel once mailers adjust to the new IMb landscape, they will be able to take advantage of the opportunities it brings, especially in the area of mail visibility. It has given us the opportunity to provide our customers with a true, end-to-end mailing software solution, and remove the guesswork around factors such as regional variations, in-home delivery dates and more, with up-to-date, actionable data.
“We encourage mailers that provide services to consider adding mail tracking for their customers, not only to create another revenue stream, but to provide additional value to their customer. We feel so strongly about this opportunity we have created customizable marketing materials for our customers to help them promote and resell mail tracking for their shops.”
NPF attendees can enjoy special pricing of $1995 for the AccuMail Mailing Suite, which includes the AccuMail frameworks Mailers Edition software, along with unlimited NCOALink processing and free mail tracking with MailSpotter for 100,000 mailpieces.
