Informed Visibility: New Insights into How Your Mail Moves

Informed Visibility was rolled out by the Postal Service in December 2017 as the latest iteration of its mail visibility services and what an update it is! Powered by the Intelligent Mail barcode, Informed Visibility lets you follow your mail from its arrival at the Post office to its final delivery, when the carrier walks into your yard and every step along the way. More than mail pieces, IV also tracks pallets, trays, and sacks of mail for greater insights, and can help predict, days out, when your mail will be delivered. In this session, we will discuss exactly how IV works, how it can benefit your organization, and what you need to do to participate.
