Mail Efficiency Solutions
Presort to the highest level possible with MailStream Plus mail efficiency solutions. Now you can maximize postal discounts on every class of US Mail with the presort software that's PAVE Gold-certified in every single category.
Our mail efficiency solutions provide four levels of presort savings and automatically generate the extensive audit trail and mail production reports you need to speed mail preparation and postal acceptance. This mail efficiency solution supports a wide range of platforms and operating systems.
Achieve Every Mail Discount Available
MailStream Plus solutions support all United States Postal Service (USPS) mail classes including First-Class, Periodicals, Standard, and Package Services - and every mail type including letters, postcards (single and double), flats parcels (First-Class machinable and irregular), and bound printed matter.
MailStream Plus is PAVE Gold-certified by the USPS in every required presort category. The mail efficiency solutions are designed in cooperation with the mailing industry to evaluate presort software and determine its accuracy in sorting address files according to Domestic Mail Manual (DMM) standards.
MailStream Plus enables you to palletize mail at all allowable USPS levels. This module lets you adjust the weight, height or volume settings for each level and lets you easily shut off optional pallet levels.
This optional reporting module improves efficiency when paying for non-identical mail such as billing statements. Manifest Reporting Plus provides the required manifest keyline and reports for First-Class and Standard Mail letters, flats and parcels.
Simplified Bag & Tray Discounts
As part of our mail efficiency solutions, the Barcode Bag & Tray Option makes it easy for you to generate the labels needed to qualify for mail automation discounts.
Drop-ship and Zone-skip Discounts
Our mail efficiency solutions provide you with many ways to take advantage of drop-ship and zone-skip discounts. The mail efficiency software makes it easy to plan in advance and you can assign minimum quantities to attain before presorting to any specific facility.
If your mail quantities don’t support dropping at certain facilities, the mail efficiency solutions will "roll" that mail into another entry point or to a default, local entry point. If you mail periodicals, you can force mail to USPS facilities that normally do not service such mail to take advantage of additional zone-skipping discounts.
The mail efficiency solutions produce Mail.dat files fully compliant with the USPS PostalOne! system - an electronic alternative to paper documentation and manual processes for mail acceptance and verification. PostalOne! links your mail information electronically with USPS acceptance, verification and payment systems.
Flexible Parameters and Options
With the flexibility to presort and prepare mail as you wish, our mail efficiency solutions adapt to your changing business needs. Our technology lets you:
- Accommodate different weight pieces in the same mailing
- Control container size by volume or weight
- Set the number of copies in a firm-package
- Choose drop-ship facilities using up-front entry planning
Variable Minimum and Maximum Settings
Our mail efficiency solutions put you in total control of your mailing and allow you to vary settings for each unique grouping of mail (Add space) so you can set different minimum and maximum qualification amounts, package sizes, bag/tray sizes, and pallet sizes for every single batch.
