Ease of use

2020-06-10

We use the software for our bulk mailing to the residents of the fire district and as we cover multiple zip codes, it is easy to sort and price.

Pros

Takes my export from our database and runs reports and tray tags from that.

Cons

Format of my export needs to be modified to use in the software.

Postage $aver review

2019-09-13

Does not completely place subscribers in the right order. Some are scattered and you have to go through labels in advance and mark them and then remember that.

Pros

I like the postal report. All I have to put in is percent and weight.

Cons

Have to keep a separate list in Microsoft spreadsheet and do a mail merge every week. You have to mark the labels every week.

Hi,
Thanks for taking the time to submit a review, and for your kind words.
Postage Saver does not support carrier route sorting, and that is indeed a limitation of the software. At this point, we see the potential market for its use as too small for the substantial additional complexity (and price) it would add to the product. But we'll keep it on the list for future consideration if circumstances change.
We appreciate your business.

Ariel,
Thanks for taking the time to write a review. I'm glad Postage Saver Pro has worked well for you.
It's pretty hard to combine different mailings, since the minimums are set by USPS. The large mail houses do it by actually sorting the mailings separately and then running them back through sorting equipment to put them together. But if you let me know what you want to do, we might be able to recommend a way.

Perfect 10

2019-04-16

I appreciate the timely notification of software updates due to USPS guidelines and such - allows me to download at my convenience.

Pros

That we didn't have to seek it or research it to work within our database software, Church Windows, and it fits our needs, no hassel easy to use.

Cons

I could comment negatively on the aestetics of design, the dialog box(es)... the overall professional "look" isn't appealing.

Mailing Made Easy

2019-04-16

Postage Saver truly makes your job simpler and takes the guess work out when dealing with the USPS paperwork.

Pros

Whether you are using bar codes or not, the program is easy to use.

Cons

Really a minor issue, takes an additional minute to go through and print each report separately.

You should be able to print all the reports together when the report dialog comes up during the preparation process. Where you are limited, though, is if you choose "save as pdf" instead of printing, in which case it will only save one at a time.
Again, thanks. We appreciate your business!

EXCEPTIONAL! HIGHLY RECOMMEND

2020-07-16

Working with this software over the past few years has been a blessing. I'm a small marketing & printing firm. It's a time saving, cost efficient must have for all those in the mailing business.

Pros

This software is extremely easy to use. The reports, barcodes, etc are better than the USPS reports.

Cons

Absolutely nothing. They have thought of everything down to the smallest detail like a box printed around the tray labels.

Super Easy

2019-07-17

Overall, recommended to anyone looking for a comprehensive way to organize and send bulk mail!

Pros

The best part is how easy this is, straightforward, we can get easy reports, its integrated with excel and I do not need it often, but when I do need some help with something, they are beyond fantastic!

Cons

Going back and forth from one format to another is a little time consuming, but this is not something that will prevent us from using Postage $aver, we save so much time and energy in so many other ways we barely even noticed (and it took me forever to even come up with something to put in this section!)

A first-rate product with superior service and value

2019-10-15

Postage $aver saves us time and money. It saves us so much compared to the complicated manual sort we used to do that it repays its entire annual cost every month or two. I've said this before to anyone who will listen: The rep provides the best, most responsive service I've ever experienced with any software product.

Pros

When I report a question, issue, or suggestion, which is rare, it gets addressed very fast -- usually within a day, and often within hours.

Cons

Hard to think of anything. They lowered the minimum sack weight at my request. I suppose it would be nice if they lowered it further, but we are OK with it.

Postage Saver Review

2020-11-12

Pretty good. The no CASS situation isn't great though. I wish you could incorporate something like dial-a-zip or something.

Pros

Fairly easy and fast to use.

Cons

I seem to spend the most time here fixing fields, etc. 3) I don't like I have to reprocess a file to reprint reports. Should be available until I start a new session.

Hi Stephen,
Thanks for your kind words and for taking the time to write a review.
Some clarifications -
First, Yes, you can reprint the reports exactly as you suggest. Just go to the File menu in Postage Saver Pro and you can reprint any report until you process a new mailing.

You don't need zip+4 if you are doing nonbarcoded bulk mailings. USPS requires zip+4 for barcoded bulk mailings, so we have to require it as it is part of the barcode.

We have recently rearranged the screen you mentioned - hopefully it is somewhat easier to navigate. (see the latest update).

Hope that helps. Please let us know when you have questions like that and we're happy to respond promptly.

Have a good Thanksgiving holiday, and thanks again.

Pros

this program is straight forward, easy to use, customer service is helpful with any questions.

Cons

I think that the design could use a refresh. looks like it was make by an engineer in the 2000's. needs some TLC from a graphic designer.

Postage Software Review

Merging data to give to the post office, it prints out all the paperwork already filled in.

Pros

It is easy, it does the hard work for you.

Cons

I might want some more fillable areas - this may already be a part of it but since I am not a technical person I haven't figured out if it is.

Great Bulk Mailing Software for a Reasonable Price

2019-04-16

I have been in the bulk mailing business for 35+ years, used several different software packages when I was working for a larger company, but never found one as easy to use with easy integration into an address database. I am now retired and working for my high school alumni association, a non-profit that awards 8-12 $1,000 scholarships annually.

Pros

Ease of use, CASS Certification, works for non profit standard mail.

Cons

Nothing really, never had a problem in the years using it.

Great money saving software. Easy to use.

2019-09-10

We have saved a great deal of money using postage saver. It has paid for itself many times over. Also, the developer is quick to respond if there are any issues, although I only had one problem in the years since I've been using it (about 5 years).

Pros

With Postage Saver I am able to add barcodes to my bulk mailing list which allows us to save a lot of money on postage and our pieces seem to be delivered quicker. Mailing services charge a lot of money to do this so by using Postage saver we save money and can mail out more pieces. New updates have added the AADC barcode which was missing before. It is continuously updated as well.

Cons

The user interface works fine, but it is not the most attractive software I have used.

Low cost, high quality postal sorting software - best in show!

2020-01-07

I use Postage $aver almost every week to sort mailing lists and prepare postal documents. I'm a small direct mail company and simply don't have the budget for commercial postal software - but this is essentially the same thing.

Pros

Low cost, frequent updates and stellar customer service.

Cons

Nothing. I use it every week and saves me $$$ as compared to the more ridiculous over-priced "commercial" postal software.

Exactly what I needed to send out business mail and save!

2019-04-16

I've even had an issue where I've had to call customer support, and was pleasantly surprised when the owner answered and solved my problem.

Pros

It's very easy to use, sorts and barcodes my mailing lists for me and creates the mailing forms to turn in.

Cons

Probably if there was some way in the future to integrate this with the USPS Postal Wizard, as I still have to fill out the USPS Postal Wizard forms online for online job submission.

Postage Saver

2019-10-16

Without Postage Saver to track and implement the postal changes it would be a very miserable task of mailing our monthly news letter.

Pros

Postage Saver tracks the many postal changes and give us "heads up" almost immediately.

Cons

Failure to put a blank line after each bundle for ease of labeling. We do that with Excel subtotal routine prior to creating the actual labels. No other complaints.

Hi Cheri,
Thanks for your kind words and for taking the time to write a review.

The total cost is always on the front page of the postage statement form. So just running that report by itself will give you your postage.

But I wonder if we could consider putting the total postage on the screen at the end of each run. Would that be helpful?
