This section contains an overview of the Mail module, basic procedures, and provides a general understanding of how to use the module. The Mail module allows for tracking of any item as it is distributed throughout a facility. The features available in this module include: automated package input using a hand-held device or desktop; delivery manifests on-the-fly; barcode tracking labels; automated signature of receipt; real-time volume tracking; delivery signature and mail item history; standard, customized, and ad-hoc reporting.
There are several mail tracking tools on the marketplace, but most are proprietary, closed-architecture systems that do not easily share data with the enterprise and are not flexible to meet specific process requirements. Although mail may sometimes be a forgotten resource, business critical data such as receivables, HR data, legal documentation, confidential customer or patient information moves through this distribution channel.
