Currently in the testing phase of deployment, a Mobile Point of Sales (mPOS) system allows lobby assistants to service customers in the lobby rather than at the retail counter.

The systems allows for simple retail transactions, such as stamp purchases, acceptance scans, and Priority Mail postage labels, and helps reduce overall wait time in line.

Priority Mail postage labels generated by the mPOS system includes the service commitment, tracking number, origin ZIP Code, date, and purchase amount.

The new system is currently being tested in 50 Post Offices across the nation to gauge effectiveness, including the Sierra Adobe, AZ, Post Office. Sierra Adobe Retail Associate Roberta Castaneda enjoys the opportunity to assist customers from outside the usual counter space.

“Roberta is enthusiastic and loves working with customers using the new technology,” said Arizona District Marketing Manager Corliss Douglas.

This latest innovative technology is one of the many examples of how the Postal Service is continuously enhancing its service to provide unparalleled value to its customers.
