NEW YORK (PRWEB) November 30, 2020
PackageX today launched Parcel, the first and only privacy-oriented unified inbound and outbound shipment solution with a streamlined interface to track all incoming packages without email access. It also helps home businesses by maintaining a record of sent packages, generating package labels, and tracking deliveries.
Due to Covid-19’s impacts on travel freedom and the economy, more people are buying and selling online, with the e-commerce industry projected to grow at least 20% in 2020. Instead of reading your emails, Parcel utilizes Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology to scan tracking numbers via a phone camera and create a streamlined report of inbound package statuses. Parcel also has Augmented Reality (AR) technology capabilities so consumers or small home businesses can measure their items simply by scanning the box with their smartphones to see shipping speed and price estimates from USPS.
Parcel assists recipients and senders through the following features:
- Inbound Package Tracking: Notifies users about incoming packages and tracks these throughout their journey, regardless of which courier service is used.
- Outbound Shipment Initiation: Allows senders to generate a shipping label, take images of the package, and send visually enhanced notifications to recipients -- all without a trip to the courier store.
- AR Measurement & Shipping Estimates: Augmented reality technology enables senders to measure the dimensions of their packages, and then see shipping speed and pricing estimates from USPS.
- Photo Records: Senders can take photos of all outbound shipments to serve as proof of record and recipients can see the contents of their package before it ships.
“E-commerce was increasing already, but the pandemic has sent it soaring. People are trying to track inbound packages coming from so many different sources. It’s confusing and time consuming, so we are bringing online shoppers a streamlined system to manage their orders.” said Farrukh Mahboob, founder and CEO of PackageX and its parent company, VisionX. “Parcel also doubles as a convenient tool to prepare labels for any outbound packages individuals or small home businesses may be sending.”
When paired with PackageX’s flagship software Mailroom, Parcel enables users to remotely direct mailroom staff to take actions on their packages, including, holding them, scanning and forwarding them to a different address or, as in the case of junk mail, destroying them. The app is a perfect solution for residential, commercial, retail and college & university mailrooms, providing full in-app tracking transparency, delivering automatic package notifications, and optimizing the customer experience.
Parcel is a smartphone app from PackageX, the company behind building management system, Mailroom, available on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. Parcel allows individuals in the U.S. to manage incoming domestic package deliveries, generate labels and initiate outbound shipments, and provide an interface to view shipping rates from various courier companies. Parcel helps small online businesses improve their returns process for customers by offering a seamless platform to view shipping rates and print labels.
