USPS eVS Added by the ABOL Shipping Platform
Atlanta, GA — ABOL Software, Inc., the leading provider of custom manifest systems,
announced today that it has begun participation in the USPS Electronic Verification
Program (“eVS”). eVS allows high-volume package mailers and consolidators to
document and pay postage using electronic manifests. ABOL is one of the first adapters
of the new eVS program, making it easier for mailers to take advantage of destination
entry rates and do business with the Postal Service.
ABOL’s early integration of the eVS program allows its customers to have complete
control of their mailings from time of preparation to time of deposit and eliminates
hardcopy manifests, postage statements, and adjustment worksheets.
