Compart - Document- and Output-Management

ePostSelect: The Customer Selects His Preferred Method of Sending

Alexander Schäfer, Swiss Post
Robert Reichmuth, Docucom


The presentation describes the challenges and opportunities faced by the Swiss Post due to an ever changing communication society, influenced by megatrends. A study of the UPU (Universal Postal Union) from December 2011 declared the Swiss Post to be right at the forefront of “e-services”. In order to establish sustainable innovation and the resulting customer solution, the Swiss Post Solutions (SPS) has positioned itself internationally and planned for growth.

By means of examples from the SPS solution and product portfolio, the presentation will show the possibilities for process optimization to be found at the interface of physical and digital communication.

A case study in partnership with docucom – a Compart Premium Partner in Switzerland – will demonstrate how Deutsche Bahn together with SPS overcame the challenges of a hybrid output communication solution.
