No Strike for Online Postal Service Thursday 7 June 2007 PDF Print Whilst a ballot of postal workers has revealed strong support for a national postal strike by Royal Mail, online letter service L-Mail.com is looking forward to the extra business industrial action will generate. L-Mail.com is an online post office that accepts letters in an electronic format from its clients, either through its web site or via its automated integration account (an API for the more computer literate). The innovative service then prints and posts the letters on behalf of its clients via 24 global locations – all without any assistance from Royal Mail. Commenting on the industrial action Peter Harris, Managing Director of L-Mail commented "Whilst I appreciate the inconvenience industrial action can cause I welcome the opportunity it presents to our business whilst people seek real alternatives to the more traditional postal services at this time of need." With increased speed of delivery and lower cost for International mail, L-Mail believe the strike will help highlight the benefits of the L-Mail service not only during the industrial action but beyond. Bypassing industrial action is only part of the attraction of L-Mail. Harris explains "By way of an example, where a post office charges £0.78 for the airmail stamp alone to Australia, L-Mail will process a 4 page letter and charge £0.68 including all the stationery, postage and dispatch of the letter from within the country . The end result is fast delivery and financial savings". Some locations are more expensive, but according to Harris, the speed of delivery and automated nature of the service remains very appealing to the L-Mail client base. "Our clients are giving us great feedback on our service. Many are appreciative of removing the mailing chore so they can focus on their core business." Businesses are putting L-Mail to a variety of uses. Some see saving money a good enough reason to send letter via L-Mail, whilst others are integrating their online systems with the L-Mail platform to automatically generate correspondence. Sending address verification and account activation codes to clients is a common use for L-Mail and something the service does faster, and often cheaper, than traditional postal services.
