IMb™ Services Update

 

PostalOne!® Scheduled Outage: The PostalOne! web server environment will have hardware maintenance performed during the scheduled 4 a.m. – 8 a.m. (CDT) maintenance window on Sunday, October 17. The PostalOne! system (including FAST OPS web services) will be unavailable for internal and external users for both production and TEM environments.

 

Full-Service eDoc Verification and Assessment: The November 2010 PostalOne! release will introduce a process for evaluation of electronic documentation (eDoc) for Full-Service mailings. The process will evaluate Full-Service electronic documentation (eDoc) for invalid Mailer ID, invalid Service Type ID, incorrect By/For information, incorrect Customer Supplier Agreement information and non-unique barcodes. On January 2, 2011, these errors will result in the loss of Full-Service discounts. Mailers should use the feedback to correct errors found during Full-Service verification prior to implementation of the Full-Service Discount Removal on January 2, 2011. Additional information can be found on RIBBS in the PostalOne! Release 25.0 release notes.

 

Full-Service Feedback Webinars: The next Full-Service Feedback webinar will be broadcast on Thursday, October 28 at 3 p.m. (EDT). This webinar explains the eDoc Verification process and Mail Data Quality reports. Log in information on the Webinars is posted on RIBBS® under Intelligent Mail Latest News.
