Neopost Introduces System for Downloading Postage from the Net

Neopost, a maker of mailing and shipping equipment, announced PostagePlus, an Internet-based system for downloading and printing postage from the Internet.

PostagePlus is geared toward individuals and small businesses with low-volume mailing needs. Users log onto the dedicated site, select addressing and postage options, and print out postage bar codes or "indicia."

J.P. Leon, Neopost product manager, said, "Printing of postage requires only the selection of an address from a list or a simple input of a single address, and the selection of the 'print' button. PostagePlus securely connects to the server, verifies user information, prepares the postage indicium, updates the account and securely returns the postage indicium to the user. The envelope or label is then printed on the user's printer."

PostagePlus is the Internet companion to PC Stamp, introduced by Neopost last year, which provides secure storage of postage on a PC.
