  • Helping posts win more parcel volumes through measuring customer satisfaction
  • Taking real-time data collection and making it useful
  • Replacing mystery shoppers and QR codes on receipts
  • Cross-border duties and taxes
  • Dealing with “denied parties” and restricted products
  • Efficiency at the counter when processing international parcels
