Citypost, an independent postal service based in Ireland, has introduced its new iPOST mail solution, which provides a one-stop approach for businesses when printing direct mail from a remote location.
The iPOST system enables businesses to create and securely send business letters, invoices and statements from any PC or laptop, using encrypted and secure technology. Individuals can print and post one or thousands of pieces of correspondence without leaving their desk.
Business customers benefit from free letterheads, free printing and free envelopes, with each letter delivered for a fee of 0.66 (US$0.70) less than the price of a stamp. The service was launched today (Jan 12), following an investment in excess of 1m (US$1.07m) by Citypost in new state-of-the-art technology at its facility in Rathcoole. The mail will be delivered by Citypost or An Post, dependent on location.

Ian Glass, CEO of Citypost, said, “We are delighted to introduce iPOST to the Irish market. Our new iPOST service will reduce costs for businesses, saving them time and money, as well as improving the traceability of mail. Mail is important for so many aspects of business, but it should not be time consuming. iPOST’s one-stop solution allows companies the benefit of mail while removing the burden of printing, packing and posting.
“The future of postal services is in harnessing technology to provide a more effective and simple service. We believe that there is a real opportunity to grow the postal market in Ireland, but this is only possible through innovation.
“iPOST also offers an even playing field for businesses around the country every business, regardless of location, can have direct access with the sorting office. iPOST is the first in a series of ‘Technology Bridge’ digital products that we are introducing this year. The iPOST technology has been proven successful in markets around the world, including the UK and USA, and now Irish businesses will have access to a product which will change the way they use post.”
