We wanted to remind you that effective January 1st, all postage meters and PC postage products will be required to use the Information-Based Indicia (IBI) or Intelligent Mail Indicia (IMI) for evidence of pre-paid postage.
If you are using an FP Mailing Solution’s T-1000 or OptiMail (not OptiMail 30,) your equipment will be decertified and not able to print the proper postage indicia as of the 1st. Your machine will need to be upgraded before this time.

New Application Subsections on Our Website!

As the number of software solution options increase, finding an option that works on your machine can be a time consuming task. To answer this concern, we have added a new subsection to each machine listing called “Business Applications,” which will list the software that is available for that machine.

In addition, we’ve created another short cut if you want more information on a piece of software. Just click on the Business Application name and a new page will open up with full details on the software. When you’re done, just close the page and your original page will still be on the screen so you can continue where you started.

Hope you enjoy this new option.
