At LePage's we’re always evolving our products and services to meet consumer’s changing needs. We realize that the postal system is changing, and that’s why we’re introducing an innovative solution that will revolutionize the way we buy stamps, mail letters and ship packages.
A recent report showed that although 64% of households frequent the post office, the United States Postal Service (USPS) is in the process of reducing hours at more than 13,000 offices to as little as 2 to 6 hours. USPS believes that by 2020, retail alternatives will replace post offices as the principal means of accessing stamps and postal services.
Enter LePage’s Mail & Go Kiosks. Together with USPS, we plan to revolutionize the way we think of mail, allowing consumers to ship where they shop:
The Mail & Go Self-Serve Kiosks will execute 75% of post office services, including dispensing printed stamps of any value, on demand. Kiosks will feature a letter and parcel drop box as well as a mail and parcel pick-up.
The kiosk eliminates 95% of labor needed, which reduces costs and adds value for retail locations. An 18-month pilot project in Dallas demonstrated that hosting our kiosk program increased foot traffic to stores by 14% and drew in new, first time customers.
Unlike an ATM machine, the Mail & Go solution is not a stand-alone appliance but an integrated merchandising solution that includes LePage’s USPS-branded shipping supplies to aid all mailing and shipping preperations. As an exclusive partner to USPS, LePage’s will offer a line of tapes, boxes, envelopes, mailers, and more to support our Mail & Go kiosks. It's just one of the ways we're helping consumers to ship where they shop.
