Postal software company Escher has launched a new Pick Up Drop Off (PUDO) solution that is aimed at postal operators.
The new Riposte PUDO solution will enable postal operators to expand their reach, availability and access to customers through a network of third party outlets, agent networks and franchisees. The Escher PUDO solution also allows those postal operators to automate and integrate transaction processes while minimising hardware investment.
Commenting on the new product, Nick Manolis, CEO Escher Group said: “90% of respondents to Escher’s 2019 Future of Posts report believe that their success over the next five years will be tied to parcels. The reality is postal operators need to transform in order to take advantage of the incredible opportunity that parcels offer. Riposte PUDO helps Posts do this, and quickly.”
He added: “One of our clients has a traditional network of more than 12,000 postal outlets, but needed to expand its reach. Using Riposte PUDO, they set up 15,000 PUDO locations – more than doubling their retail footprint in just three months. This solution has the potential to be a game changer for Posts all over the world where parcels are becoming an increasingly important source of income.”
