RGC Takes Over NetPost

Share this article:
A private provider, RGC Communications, has taken over management of the NetPost Mailing Online service formerly offered by the U.S. Postal Service, RGC announced yesterday.


RGC, Roselle, IL, will own and operate NetPost under license to the USPS. Launched in September 2000, NetPost was an experimental service that let small and midsized businesses send documents and mailing lists to the USPS, which then would send them to printers near their delivery point to maximize cost savings.


The postal service announced the termination of the experiment earlier this month after three years. RGC, which partnered with the USPS in 2000 to provide printing and mailing services as part of the original NetPost program, will take over the operation full-time in partnership with the postal service.


The transition will be transparent to NetPost users, who still will be able to access the NetPost Web site at MailingOnline.com, RGC said. Enhanced document design and printing and improved site navigation are planned by January 2004. RGC has partnered with L2 Solutions Inc., Palo Alto, CA; and Poste Digital, Arlington, VA, to develop the improvements.
