Postal Services Deployments of Registered Email Services Increase 300% Quarter Over Quarter


Postal Services in Colombia and Bermuda Deploy New Customers using RPost Technologies

Service use by major customers in each market has increased 300% over the last calendar quarter.

In Colombia, RPost Registered Email® services are offered by 4-72, the Colombia postal service, under the brand Certim@il™, to its 45 million citizens. “We are pleased to announce EPM Telecomunicaciones (UNE) as one of our newest Certim@il customers. EPM is one of the largest utilities in Colombia offering clients a complete set of telecommunications and other utility services across its national network,” describes Leon Dario Foronda Ceballos, corporate business development at 4-72 Colombia Post. “UNE is well known for pursuing excellence and delivering first class services to its clients; and as such, clearly recognized the value of corresponding with its clients in a secure and verifiable manner using the Registered Email service.”

When UNE needed to send a communication by paper to its clients, it took at least 4-6 days for customers within a major city, and at least 12 days for rural customers. Now, UNE reports it can reach its clients electronically in minutes by sending high value customer correspondence as Registered Email messages, returning legally valid proof of delivery, content and time received by its clients. UNE specifically reports sending Registered Email message responses to client requests, petitions, complaints and claims. UNE further reports they plan to start signing new service contracts and sending invoices with the Registered Email services later this year.

In Bermuda, new customers include six departments of the Bermuda Government, among others. These customers have reported using Bermuda Post Registered Email service for legally valid proof of content and time of receipt of notices, for legally signing contracts electronically, and for sending confidential correspondence in a secure, encrypted, and compliant manner.

Both Bermuda Post Registered Email and 4-72 Colombia Post Certim@il services are powered by RPost technology.
