Smarter Receiving: Technology for Inbound Package Management

With students spending an estimated $8.6 billion shopping online, not to mention care packages and other important items, package management in campus mailrooms is critical to day-to-day operations. The sheer volume of parcel deliveries can quickly overwhelm staff and lead to misplaced packages and inconvenient long package pick-lines.

How can your campus mail center manage packages and ensure nothing gets lost in the shuffle? Pitney Bowes has you covered.

Inbound Tracking

PitneyTrack™ Inbound is a tracking software that records a chain of custody for all your inbound packages – from arrival to confirmed pickup. With barcode scanning, automatic notifications and delivery documentation, PitneyTrack Inbound captures all the information needed for complete transparency, greater control and full chain-of-custody reporting for every package that arrives to your campus.

With this comprehensive inbound shipping management software, employees responsible for incoming packages and important mail can quickly establish chain of custody. What just came in? Who is it for? When was it moved? Where is it now? How will you know when it has arrived where it needs to go? Answer all these questions, and quickly track down lost or misplaced packages, with an accessible, efficient cloud-based inbound package management platform. And with an actionable dashboard, available on desktop and mobile devices, important inbound package data is easy to find whenever, and wherever, it’s needed.

With PitneyTrack Inbound, you can streamline and simplify your campus mail center management, inbound package tracking, and internal package delivery.

Self-Service Pickup as Delivery

Smart lockers are becoming popular on college campuses everywhere and can be an efficient solution for internal package management. With campus mail centers experiencing overcrowded mailrooms, and long package pick-up lines, not to mention the health concerns that are still prevalent on college campuses, smart lockers provide contactless delivery for students, faculty and even commuters.

Smart lockers are secured at every hour of the day and are the perfect solution for recipients to pick up packages when it’s convenient for them. When your mail center employees are dealing with a high volume of packages daily, smart lockers ease the burden on staff. With signature or even photo confirmation, pickups are tracked and help to eliminate packages to be lost or delivered to the wrong person.

ParcelPoint™ Smart Lockers automatically sends email notifications to the recipients when their package is ready that includes a barcode or unique PIN for secure access. They provide an efficient and safe method for delivering inbound packages and streamline inbound package management for mail centers and offer safe, secure, and convenient pickup options for package recipients.
