Are you still running your envelopes through a postage meter?
Why not use the Stamps.com® integration in TrialWorks?
Integration with Stamps.com is a User specific setting, not global to the firm. Each user will have to enable this feature. To configure the integration follow these steps:
Select ‘User Tools’ from the User Ribbon.
Under the ‘User Settings and Help’ Tab, click the checkbox to ‘Use Stamps.com.’ If you would like to keep track of client expenses, also check the ‘Add Postage to cost’. This will create an entry on the Costs Tab.
If you have not downloaded the Software, or are a new user of Stamps.com, you will be prompted to register with Stamps.com right from TrialWorks.
There are two ways to use Stamps.com through TrialWorks.
Print an envelope from the Contacts Tab:
Click on Contacts
Highlight the contact you wish to create an envelope for
Then click the ‘Envelope’ icon on the Bottom Button Bar of the Contacts Tab.
If you haven’t already, you will be prompted to sign in to your Stamps.com account.
The ‘Delivery Address’ will automatically transfer from the contact to the Stamps.com integration. You can choose to change the address by typing into the field.
Select your ‘Mailpiece.’
Add the ‘Weight’ of the envelope. Notice your ‘Total Cost’ change as you add weight.
Select the ‘Mail Class.’
You have the option to add ‘Insurance’ for the envelope.
Select your ‘Mailing Date.’
Add an envelope to the printer and select to ‘Print Postage.’
The Total Cost will then appear as a line item in the Cost Tab of TrialWorks.
The second way use Stamps.com is in the ‘Correspondence Tab.’
After you have created the letter you want to send, click the ‘Print Envelope’ icon at the bottom of the detail window.
Follow the same steps to complete the details of the package by adding the address, weight and date to the Stamp.com window.
Select to ‘Print Postage.’
The Total Cost will also appear as a line item in the Cost Tab of TrialWorks.
For best results, fully fill out the setup and configuration of the Stamps.com Software.
