IMb Services Update

Migrating to the IMb™ Webinars: In May 2011, eligibility for automation discounts in letter and flat mailings will require mailers to use an Intelligent Mail® barcode (IMb) on each mailpiece in Full-Service and Basic IM barcoded mailings. At that time, the POSTNET™ barcode will no longer qualify for automation prices. To help mailers transition to using the IMb, the Postal Service is conducting webinars entitled “Migrating to the IMb.” These webinars will be held between November 22, 2010, and May 3, 2011.

Full-Service eDoc Verification Using MicroStrategy Webinars: will be held on Thursdays beginning November 18 through December 16 (excluding November 25) from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. EST. These webinars are tailored to provide mailers details on the eDoc Verification process and enhancements to the MicroStrategy Mail Data Quality reports to support the new eDoc evaluation process.

The webinar schedule and log on information will be posted on the RIBBS® website under Intelligent Mail Latest News on Wednesday, November 17.
