WILMINGTON, NC — The Greater Wilmington Area PCC (GWAPCC) recently held an information session for mailing industry professionals about Informed Delivery-Informed Visibility on the campus of UNC-Wilmington.
The session included presentations about the latest Postal Service innovations to integrate hardcopy mail with digital marketing and identity theft prevention through mail security.
“The Postal Service is increasingly focused on bridging digital services and mail,” said Wilmington Postmaster and GWAPCC Postal Co-Chair Chris Spann. “Informed Delivery is a great feature for customers, mailers and marketers. The evolution of mail and digital integration is exciting.”
Informed Delivery is a free and optional notification feature that gives residential consumers the ability to digitally preview their letter-sized mail and manage their packages scheduled to arrive soon. Informed Delivery benefits the entire household by allowing users to view what is coming to their mailbox whenever, wherever – even while traveling – on a computer, tablet, or mobile device. More than 15 million users are enjoying the benefits and rewards of Informed Delivery.
“PCC membership is a great opportunity for members to learn more about the latest industry innovations while still offering sessions on best practices for traditional mailing,” Spann said.
The GWAPCC is open to mailing industry professionals, marketing agencies, printers, colleges and universities and any business that uses the mail. The Greater Wilmington Area PCC welcomes membership from all surrounding areas, including Fayetteville, Cary, and Jacksonville, to the South Carolina Border.
PCCs foster and maintain close working relationships between mailers and the Postal Service by helping members and their organizations grow and develop professionally through focused educational programs. It promotes cooperation and support between members and others who are dedicated to quality and efficiency in the mailing industry.
The Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.
