Australian consumers can now set up their Australia Post Digital MailBox.

With the continued business and consumer migration to digital communications, Australia Post is the latest post to offer a digital mail consolidation service. Using the Volly secure digital delivery service from Pitney Bowes as its technology platform, Australia Post has spent the last seven months integrating and customizing it to provide a user experience specifically tailored for the Australian market.

Volly to Power the Australia Post Digital MailBox

The Volly secure digital delivery system from Pitney Bowes Inc. has been selected to power the recently-announced Australia Post Digital MailBox. Bernie Gracy, External Chief Technology Officer and Vice President of Business Development at Volly briefed InfoTrends on the announcement this morning. “Australia Post has undertaken highly-rigorous due diligence over the last few months and this is clearly the platform they want to build their user experience on,” stated Gracy. “One of the reasons [for us] to partner with Australia Post is that they think of themselves as a digital company first.”

Australia Post Digital MailBox is slated for launch at the end of Q3, 2012. Volly’s name will be branded on the business-facing material; however, it will not be used in consumer-facing branding. Pitney Bowes will handle preference management, identity, and the onboarding process, while Australia Post will focus on optimizing the user experience for the Australian market. As a result, the Australia Post Digital MailBox will have a different look and feel from Volly in the U.S. (slated for launch at end of Q4, 2012). Australia Post will build its own features on top of Volly’s core platform, customizing it as needs for its own customers.

Here is a view of what the Volly consumer home page will look like in the U.S.: Read more »

e-Boks Expands its Digital Mailbox Services Presence in Europe

e-Boks is an often-referenced digital mailbox service as a proof point for new entrants around the globe. This year, it also turns into an international competitor under its namesake. With over 65% of the Danish population using the digital postal mail service to receive and archive business documents, the service jointly owned by Post Danmark and Nets (an electronic payments company) has recently expanded into Norway and plans to be in Sweden by the end of this year. As with the service in Denmark, Norwegian users can receive bank statements, insurance policies, pay slips, and official government documents via e-Boks with free storage for life (they can also upload and store up to 50 MB worth of content for free). For Norwegian businesses, e-Boks is similar to certified mail in that it provides approval certificates to businesses that act as the guarantee of delivery.

I recently caught up with e-Boks CEO, Henrik Andersen, for a service update and to follow up on these announcements. Here are some highlights from our discussion on the service in Denmark: Read more »

Kodak Will Show the 5000XL at Graph Expo (and Other Prosper News)

I found out this week that Kodak has decided to bring the Prosper 5000XL to Graph Expo (October 3-6, Chicago). This will mirror what Kodak did at IPEX and will represent the first showing of the device in North America. It’s good news and for those who haven’t committed to attending, it provides another reason to come to the show. There’s more about Prosper in the news as well. You should have a look at Eric Owen’s blog in Output Links for some insight on Prosper, but here’s a quick take on the recent developments:

  • There are now two Prosper system installations — Kodak customers Offset Paperback Manufacturers (Laflin, Pennsylvania) and SAGIM (a French print service provider using the system for books) represent the first two installed beta sites of Prosper standalone systems (other companies have Prosper S10 Imprinting Systems running in conjunction with traditional printing presses). Both have the Prosper 1000 (the monochrome version of Prosper). Kodak reports that Offset Paperback Manufacturers (OPM) will be the first site to get the process color Prosper 5000XL and that the device is being installed now. Kodak said that in the past month OPM has been produced salable books at a volume of up to 1.7 million book pages (approximately 3,850 books) per day on its Prosper 1000.
  • The first Prosper 1000 placement in Australasia — SOS Print and Media Group in Sydney, Australia will be installing a Prosper 1000 for book printing in November. This is the first Prosper 1000/5000XL announcement in Australasia (there have been S5/S10 Imprinting System announcements, for example, in China). SOS says that it will consider upgrading the device to the full-color 5000XL version. Read more »
