Mail Service Providers (MSPs) have long struggled with the high costs that accompany Certified Mail™ jobs, due to the labor required to prepare Certified Mail and manage the tracking and storage of Green Cards. These costs can actually exceed the actual USPS postage and Certified Mail fees on piece-by-piece basis.
Fortunately, the SimpleCertified™ web-based platform employs Batch Processing and APIs that enable MSPs to greatly reduce the labor required for Certified Mail projects while delighting customers with faster processing and improved access to information about each mail piece.
Batch Processing and APIs features can reduce labor hours by more than 80%
SimpleCertifiedMail.com’s Batch Process Wizard imports addresses from Microsoft® Excel files and prints Certified Mail cover sheets (with the recipient and return address, electronic postage and Certified Mail barcodes) on standard 8.5” x 11” paper that can be automatically finished in window envelopes using folders and inserters.
MSPs with experience integrating via APIs upload files to the SimpleCertified™ platform and receive back a PDF file with Certified Mail cover sheets matching each address in the file, complete with electronic postage. This enables the MSP to print the cover sheets on standard 8.5” x 11” paper, automatically match them with the appropriate letters, then use folder/inserts to finish the mailing pieces.
Both processes dramatically reduce the labor required to prepare large Certified Mail mailings. In fact one MSP recently reduced the time it takes to prepare 500 Certified Mail letters from six hours to less than one, a savings of more than 80%.
APIs enable easy, automated access to tracking and USPS confirmations
The SimpleCertified™ APIs enable Mail Service Providers to pull tracking information – the Proof of Acceptance, Proof of Delivery and the all-important Return Receipt Electronic – right into their systems. Many MSPs push the information directly to their clients systems along with production data.
