Estonian Post purchases Stampit pilot license from Deutsche Post
Demand for innovative PC franking solution increasing abroadBonn, 08/09/2005, 11:30 AM CEST
Eesti Post, the Estonian national postal service, signed a licensing agreement in Bonn today with Deutsche Post on the use of the PC franking solution STAMPIT HOME. This makes Estonia the third country, following the United Kingdom and Switzerland, whose postal service wishes to offer the innovative franking solution from Germany to its customers. Beginning in autumn, Eesti Post will be testing STAMPIT HOME, adapted for the Estonian market, on 50 pilot customers. Following a successful test run, Eesti Post plans to offer the program to its customers on a continuing basis. More than 90% of small and medium-sized businesses and 34% private households in Estonia have Internet access. This number is rising, making Estonia an attractive market for a PC franking solution like STAMPIT HOME.
STAMPIT, with its versions HOME, BUSINESS and WEB, is the first PC online franking service in Europe. The franking matrix code can be printed together with the recipient's address on the envelope, on labels or directly on Office documents for window envelopes. For eBay users in Germany, STAMPIT WEB recently made it possible to print out online parcel stamps from DHL. This offer will also be made available to other Internet users beginning in autumn. In the STAMPIT family, STAMPIT HOME is the version for private users, small enterprises and small-volume customers. Users only need the STAMPIT software, a standard PC with Internet access and an ink jet or laser printer. Users' personal postage accounts are loaded online and postage costs are paid by direct debit.
