PostalOne Issues With VAR Process

with 2 comments

“Attention Postal One! Users: Value Added Refund Process | News | News | Mailing Systems Technology”

The only result that can reasonably be expected – USPS does not adequately test their software before deploying it publicly – resulting in issues, delays, and other unnecessary issues  Acceptance of substandard product, rife with work-around pitfalls is standard operating procedure for PostalOne. Could the endless issues and repeated errors be one of the reasons Full Service adoption has stalled?  Fix what’s broken and stop introducing further issues until there is some stability. January 2014 is closer than anyone realizes.
