Background: The client, a consumer finance company based in Atlanta, with over 600 locations nationwide faced a significant challenge with its postage and parcel expenditures. With a sprawling network of branches across multiple states, the company’s postage costs were spiraling out of control. Additionally, the manual processes involved in parcel shipping led to inefficiencies and lack of visibility into postage spend.



  1. High Postage Spend: The client was spending over $500K annually on

postage across its branches, leading to increased operational costs.

processes were predominantly manual, leading to delays, errors, and

lack of centralized control.

postage spend across its branches, making it challenging to track

expenses and optimize costs effectively.

postage spend across the company’s 600+ branches.

  1. Visibility and Control: HQ was provided with real-time visibility into

postage spend and shipping activities across all branches, enabling

better control and decision-making.



  1. Cost Savings: The company was able to achieve significant cost

savings, reducing its annual postage expenditure by over $250,000.

  1. Efficiency Gains: The automation of parcel shipping processes led to

increased efficiency and reduced operational overheads.

comprehensive visibility into postage spend and shipping activities,
