The following review written by one of the Software Informer contributors applies to version 3.5
If you run a mailroom, run a mail order service, or simply send large amounts of post from the US to many addresses, the USPS Shipping Assistant 3.5 software is the ideal tool for you.
Having this program on your desktop will help you to carry out all the duties a mail room requires such as label making, shipping, postal rates and estimated delivery calculations, and carrier requests for domestic and international customers. You can even perform return and custom form functions from within the program. Managing your mail room or dispatch department will become more efficient with this shipping assistant software.
The shipping assistant can also be integrated with a Pitney Bowes mail station postage meter allowing you to weigh items, print postage etc. Printing labels couldn't be easier and you can produce and print labels for International Shipping to every country where USPS provides a postal service as well as custom forms. As you create your labels, you can add recipient’s addresses to the Address Book featured in the program eliminating future error since the program verifies addresses before printing occurs. Addresses in your postal address book can be divided into categories like Business, Friends, etc., and can be found easily with the search function provided. Additionally, you can look up ZIP codes for any city or state that you need and import addresses from other applications.
