ARLINGTON, Va., May 22, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Click2Mail, a pioneer of cloud-based software for small business, today announced the release of the first Microsoft Office Add-in to enable postal mailing. The Click2Mail Add-in allows Word users to mail physical documents via the U.S. Postal Service directly from their desktops, laptops or tablets/iPads. Click2Mail made the announcement today at the National Postal Forum in Baltimore, MD.
"Given the worldwide popularity and power of Microsoft Word, the new Click2Mail Add-in is a notable advance in creating a seamless link between digital devices we use every day and businesses' enduring need to send physical mail," said Click2Mail founder and CEO Lee Garvey, a long-time advocate for the growth and success of small business.
Microsoft Word users can select or create a letter-sized or legal-sized document to mail. Recipients are chosen by highlighting a postal delivery address within the document, typing an address or selecting a previously saved address or list from their Click2Mail account. Print and paper options are selectable and, once the order button is clicked, Click2Mail prints and mails the document for not much more than the cost of a stamp.
With the Click2Mail Microsoft Add-in, users can:
- Collaborate on mailing projects with partners or clients in real time by sharing documents via Microsoft 365.
- Use Microsoft Word's many features and Add-ins to create dynamic, compelling mailpieces.
- Synchronize mailing list data between the Add-in and Click2Mail.com and use lists in both places.
This release is another major advancement for Click2Mail in the cloud-based creation of physical mail. In 2014 Google selected Click2Mail to develop a similar postal mailing feature for Google Docs.
Click2Mail enables companies nationwide to automate postal-related functions and bring them out of the mailroom and into the cloud. What that means for business customers is: no printing, no postage meters, no permits, no subscription fees and fewer trips to the post office. Click2Mail has disrupted the traditional mailroom model to provide affordable cloud-based, just-in-time mailing services that can be difficult and costly for small and medium sized businesses. Since 2003, Click2Mail has helped more than 370,000 clients send over 280 million pieces of mail.
