National PCC Day: South Florida Businesses Attend Intelligent Mail University

The South Florida business community learned more about the Intelligent Mail barcode, or IMb, on National Postal Customer Council (PCC) Day, the premier Fall event for the mailing industry. Postal officials and mailing industry representatives attended "Intelligent Mail University" in the auditorium of the United Auto Insurance Group in Miami Gardens.

Pritha Mehra, Vice President, Business Mail Entry and Payment Technologies, delivered a presentation on the IMb, the Postal Service’s tracking system that uses standardized intelligent barcodes, continuous mail tracking, and real-time feedback on mailpieces. Participants also viewed Postmaster General John E. Potter’s keynote address via satellite broadcast.

Throughout the year, the PCC provides a forum for mailers to discuss and resolve mailing issues with their local Postmaster and also serves as an avenue for its members to exchange ideas and suggestions on new postal products and services.
