Chatham needed a way they could reduce shipping costs when sending diplomas, transcripts, admission letters, fundraising letters and other critical documents throughout the semester, while still maintaining visibility in tracking and capturing cost-saving insights. Whether they’re servicing students, faculty, or local residents, Chatham was looking for a solution to decrease shipping costs across their 3 locations, provide real-time tracking, capture all data whether internal or external, and streamline their reporting all with minimal IT assistance so that student workers could easily learn and master the solutions.

Additionally, they were able to save days of manual work with PitneyAnalytics to automatically capture all internal and even external transactions and streamline their accounting and reporting processes. They can manage all of these shipping activities through one single intuitive dashboard.
