Escher, a provider of point-of-service software, has introduced a new PUDO solution that has been specifically developed for postal operators.
Riposte PUDO enables posts to quickly expand their reach, availability and access to customers through third-party outlets, agent networks and franchisees. The solution provides posts with a cost-effective solution to automate and integrate transaction processes, as well as minimize hardware investment.
The solution also equips agents so that they can conduct transactions on the posts behalf, with low setup costs and minimal maintenance requirements. Riposte PUDO provides a responsive, open, modular and future-proofed solution enabling the seamless deployment of software updates and additional services to the PUDO network.
“90% of respondents to Escher’s 2019 Future of Posts report believe that their success over the next five years will be tied to parcels. The reality is postal operators need to transform to take advantage of the incredible opportunity that parcels offer. Riposte PUDO helps posts do this, and quickly,” said Nick Manolis, CEO, Escher Group.
“One client has a traditional network of more than 12,000 postal outlets, but needed to expand its reach. Using Riposte PUDO, they set up 15,000 PUDO locations – more than doubling their retail footprint in just three months. This solution has the potential to be a game changer for posts all over the world, where parcels are becoming an increasingly important source of income,” Manolis added.
