What is a M-bag and why use it?
Since the mail item or parcel is inside the sack, a tag must be created that includes the destination addressee, return address, and postage payment indicia on the tag.
ID Mail’s MMW M-bag system get all of this done while at the same time capturing the mail piece information for postal manifesting and client billing.
When a mail piece is placed on the scale, the MMW M-bag system will automatically recognize the piece is over the 4.4 lbs. minimum, capture an image of the mail piece address via the camera imaging system, print all the appropriate labels for the tag and mail piece, show the operator where to apply the labels to the appropriate tag based on the customer’s routing service, and the correct mail sack to select and bag the piece, and then record all data. ID Mail’s innovative touchscreen user interface walks the operator through each step to insure fast processing and accurate results.
Depending on your operation’s daily M-bag processing volume, ID Mail can provide a simple stand alone MMW processing system with M-bag enhancement or higher volume solution that incorporates several workstations for more than one operator to process the different steps of creating an M-bag.
The MMW M-bag system brings all parts of processing a M-bag item together for efficient processing and data collection all in one system. Items are captured for customer billing, the correct postal indicia is applied to the mail item; labels for the M-bag tag and the correct M-bag image are printed and displayed to the operator so the M-bag is created correctly, and the data is saved for manifesting with the appropriate postal operator/partner. Total production time: less than 20 seconds each compared with nearly a minute each when operators must hand write the M-bag tag and manually record billing information.
