Features

 In most cases mailroom staff still hand-deliver personal mail, advertising mail, ad hoc correspondence, and catalogs directly to the addressee (or the addressee’s assistant). Obviously, such delivery is very costly and difficult, if not impossible, to complete in situations where the workforce is either permanently or temporarily working remote from the corporate campus.  

When mail arrives, the mail center scans the envelope or covers of the piece. Staff receive a message over their preferred communications channel (e.g., email, text message, workflow alert) with links to the scan results. Receiving staff then selects an appropriate action for mail center staff to take; actions which can include options like physical delivery, electronic scanning, and even physical destruction. Virtual Post Office reduces overall mail center staff effort and lowers the cost associated with managing and moving physical mail pieces.
