CTT/Portuguese Post-Office Selects edocs To Deliver Mail Online

Sunday 16 January 2005 14:24 CET | News

edocs has been selected by CTT Portugal to launch an electronic mailbox service encompassing electronic statement, billing and payment capabilities to all corporate, consumer and government customers of the Portuguese Post-Office.

The new platform is part of a nationwide rollout that will provide customers with solutions for accessing all documents via a secure Universal Electronic Post Office Box (UEPOB), and will specifically provide the ability to view mail and pay invoices anywhere, anytime. With the rapid growth in online banking and broadband adoption in Portugal, the new service is expected to gain immediate interest from large volume billers in the telecommunications, financial services and utilities sectors. These service providers will benefit from significant cost reduction opportunities across their billing and payment functions and gain a new interactive communications channel with end-users. Portuguese Post is also expecting interest among government agencies that generate high volumes of paper-based communications for citizens and businesses in Portugal. The application to be developed with edocs will support connections and integration with existing ERP and invoicing systems, electronic postmark certification, home banking systems, universal electronic mailboxes, hybrid mail systems, and payment networks. The solution provides the best of both the consolidator and biller-direct models of e-statementing. Customers of CTT will be able to go to the CTT web portal site to access their electronic mailbox and to access all bills and statements. Additional levels of detail about each document (e.g. call details, or itemized bank transactions) can be made available within the portal or by means of direct access to each billers web site. In addition, users will be provided with some of the most advanced electronic payment systems available in Portugal.
