IMb™ Services Update

 

Business Customer Gateway update — The Business Customer Gateway (BCG) external application Release 1.8 will deploy on March 6, 2011. Shipping Services and Incentive Programs will be added to the BCG with the launch of the new Program Registration application.

 

Customers can enroll in programs that require access to one or more business applications or services available through the BCG, including the Electronic Verification System (eVS®), Express Mail® Manifesting system (EMM), Parcel Return Service (PRS), and the Tracking Only Service. 

 

Additionally, new Business Service Administrator (BSA) roles and service types within the BCG sub-systems will be enabled to increase security access. The Manage Mailing Activity (PostalOne!®) and the Audit Mailing Activity services will now be managed by the Manage Mailing Activity BSA. For detailed information download the Business Customer Gateway External Users Release 1.8 Notes from RIBBS®.

 

Full Service applications unavailable during March 6 UNIX maintenance — On March 6, 2011, the Postal Service will be applying the quarterly UNIX operating system patches between 4 a.m. CT and 2 p.m. CT.  The Full Service applications, including Business Customer Gateway, Mailer ID, FAST® and PostalOne!/MDR, will be unavailable during this time.
