The United States postal service has launched their mobile website for all to utilize. The mobile portal allows for tracking and delivery confirmation, zip code look up and USPS location look up as well.
“Our new mobile capability makes USPS services even more convenient for our customers,” said Robert Bernstock, president, Mailing and Shipping Services.
Any mobile user with web access will be able to log on to the Postal Service mobile site no matter where they are, without having to use a personal computer, Bernstock said.
“If they’re on the road, they’ll be able to use the Post Office locator function to find a Post Office that’s close to them. And they’ll also be able to track and confirm delivery of their mail or packages using their mobile phone,” he said.
The press release also mentions the fact the USPS is working on further applications for smartphones which takes advantage of more features such as GPS search and more. Mobile web use is on the rise, it's great to see more and more adoption of it go live.
