AnalyticsAssurety™ provides marketing and CRM insights into campaigns and enables A/B testing for Informed Delivery. Also, delivering insights to sales and operations organizations on total profit per presort, cost avoidance through nightly decision support dashboards for future jobs, optimization of AADC, and mixed AADC pieces through consolidation opportunities.

Assurety’s deep postal & parcel logistics experience and expertise have created a user-friendly interface on top of a scalable enterprise-level software solution for commercial mailers, shippers, parcel & post-delivery organizations allowing resources to learn and operate the software with less up-front training.

In 2006, Assurety was the first software vendor to develop service-oriented architecture (SOA), automating business-to-business transaction processes for the postal logistics industry, automating dock management for mail induction at plants. Integrate your TMS (transportation management system) with the Mail.XML-based ShipmentAssurety™, an AIMS plus™ module. This software saved hundreds of thousands of dollars of cost by removing the manual FAST appointment management in commercial mailing, consolidation, and logistics environments. The software also automates distance and stop calculations for truck stops for each entry and optimizes it.
