Facility Count with SAP BusinessObjects Postalsoft Business Edition
Did you know that Postalsoft Business Edition has built in facility count?
When the Multiple Entry Point / Pallet add-on option is enabled in the Postalsoft Business Edition program you have the ability to run facility counts. The Facility Count provides the user with information on how many pieces might qualify for discounts at each possible destination facility before completely presorting the mail. In Postalsoft Business Edition in the Presort functionality, on the Sort for Mailing – Sorting Information screen, change the radio button from ‘Single facility’ to ‘Multiple facility’. Below this, check the checkbox ‘only show facilities with piece count of atleast ___ piece(s)’. You will need to populate with the number of pieces of mailings you are interested in seeing at the destination facilities. If you type ‘20’ , when at the Multiple Entry Point – Select Facility list screen, you will see a list of facilities that contain 20 or more pieces of mail directed to that facility. You will also see the count beside the entry point name. Remember those facilities that contain less then 20 pieces will NOT appear in the facility list.
You can also access this report by going to Print > Reports > Presort – Facility Count Statistics. If you would like to change the piece count click on Options, then populate with the desired piece number. Click Preview or Print. This gives a better idea of where to drop your mailings and potentially gain discounts.
