August 31, 2021


Nothing takes up more time than having separate processes for similar tasks, especially when they don’t – or can’t – work together. You end up wasting time and bouncing from task to task, only to watch as the workday ticktocks away. Maybe it's time to combine mailing and shipping processes into an all-in-one process.

It’s probably time to get to know S.M.A.R.T.

What is S.M.A.R.T.?

S.M.A.R.T. combines Shipping, Mailing, Accounting, Reporting, and Tracking in one easy-to-use online solution. It was designed to streamline your mailing and shipping processes while also saving you time and money by centralizing your mail center and reducing your equipment footprint. S.M.A.R.T lets you…

  • Ship easily by viewing and comparing rates from major carriers. You can access Commercial Base pricing discounts and organize your shipping all in one platform.
  • Mail efficiently with an all-in-one online mailing portal. Automatically update postage rates and seamlessly integrate with our intelligent postage meters.
  • Accounting for up to five levels that’s flexible for any business size. Keep up with your mailing budget down to 1/10th of a cent and recoup postage spends with chargeback accounting.
  • Report monthly expenses or design and schedule custom reports by mail class, weight, presort, account, department, operator, pre-defined or custom time periods – and more! 
  • Track the shipment and delivery of every package you send. Keep customers informed every step of the way and improve record-keeping with features like a 13-month tracking history. 

How does S.M.A.R.T. work?

S.M.A.R.T. works by integrating your multiple mailing and shipping solutions and technologies into an all-in-one mail center. The software is paired with your intelligent postage meter – such as our iX-5 Meter – then connects to S.M.A.R.T. software installed on your PC. You can connect, manage, and organize your shipping, mailing, accounting, reporting, and tracking all from your desktop.
