without comments

From the PostalOne! Help Desk:
PostalOne Outage Notification – Remedy Case #: HD0000005438961 Mail XML only * 09/14

Attention PostalOne! Users

After reviewing a server issue impacting PostalOne! XML external users. We have found the system to be operational but, an unscheduled server restart had to be performed. The restart was done in a rolling fashion resulting in no outage to mailers or users.
There is no impact to FAST, eDOC or the internal application.

Thank You

STRATEGIC PRIORITIES OF USPS DRIVE

without comments

The Postal Service’s high-level initiative to review and improve the organization’s business management practices — “Delivering Results, Innovation, Value and Efficiency” (DRIVE) — is guided by eight strategic priorities. An earlier article outlined the first four.

The remaining four priorities also play an important role in the overall effort and include:

Executive Transparency. The goal of this priority is to improve the consistency, speed, and effectiveness of decision making and also strengthen coordination among USPS senior managers by developing a cross-functional calendar and tracking for major events.

I’m always puzzled by the appeal of programs of this nature, especially to an organization without a lot of fluff to invest.  The application of good old common sense, a focus on customer service, and efficient internal and external lines of communication usually solves all of the problems compartmentalized by these types of initiatives.  Is a bulky formalized program going to help?  Only time – and results – will tell.
