We’ve been simplifying Certified Mail® since 2005.
SimpleCertifiedMail.com got its start in 2005 with the goal of leveraging web technologies in order to make Certified Mail® easier to use, track, and manage.
Working together with the USPS® and Endicia, we developed and introduced online software enabling clients to print a cover sheet or label, printed from standard office printers, and including electronic postage, thus enabling clients to eliminate the USPS® PS 3800 form, PS 3811 Green Card, and postage meters. The software also automatically checked and corrected outbound addresses, ensuring they were formatted correctly and contained the correct Zip+4.
Soon after, we added the capability to post the Return Receipt (Electronic) PDF to our clients’ accounts within 24 hours of their Certified Mail® being delivered. This was a huge improvement over waiting up to a week for the return of a Green Card. And it remains a unique benefit of the service.
At the same time, we launched Proof of Delivery (Electronic) for those users who did not require a Return Receipt (Electronic) with signature. The Proof of Delivery PDF file is also posted to client accounts within 24 hours of the Certified Mail® piece being delivered.
In 2011, we incorporated the new USPS Intelligent Mail Package Barcode technology to gain a higher level of visibility of the mail stream. This also enabled electronic Proof of Acceptance (Electronic), thus eliminating the need to use Scan Forms, Firm Books and Manifests.
Next, we added a Batch Processing Wizard making it easy for clients to mail hundreds or thousands of Certified Mail pieces using mailings lists they maintain in Microsoft® Excel or CSV file format.
In 2017 we added API support for enterprise clients seeking to integrate our services directly into their key web-based applications.
In 2020, with Covid-19 causing many of our clients to work from their homes, we introduced the “Add Alternative Address” feature enabling clients to mail from their home address while the Certified Mail envelope still shows their office as the return address, and electronic Proof of Acceptance (Electronic) posting accurately in their accounts. We also launched Print Queue™ which enables clients to add cover sheets to a queue as they work during the day but delay printing until later. For some clients, it’s more efficient to print a day’s worth of cover sheets all at once, rather than one-at-a-time. We also partnered with EasyPost® to bring more capabilities to the platform, such as mailing regular First-Class letters.
SimpleCertifiedMail.com remains committed to providing the most innovative and user-friendly services to its clients, all to make USPS services more accessible and easier to use.
