Wincor-Nixdorf Sucessful Post&Go Live

The first pair of Wincor-Nixdorf Propostal machines sucessfully went live at “The Galleries” branch in Bristol  today, after some inital teething problems and adjustments.

Much interest from around the world has been generated by the UK Post Office adoption of the latest ATM stamp technology as most (if not all) of the labels and faststamps issued on the first day were snapped up by collectors eagly awaiting  the machines introduction.

However, it is undeniable that the new automated self-service will be the quickest and simplest way to send mail and buy stamps in Post&Go branches.

 Customers can purchase labels that can be used immediately or fastsamps that can  taken away for subsequent use.

All customers need do is place their item on the scale and follow the on-screen step-by-step instructions to send their item initally paying with cash with a future option of card payments for transactions over £2.00.

Postage Labels in the UK? they don’t issue those do they?

This blog is all about Postage Labels in the UK- from the first steps in 1984 to the plans in 2008/9 to roll out 700 Nixdorf machines that will include the facility to post letters and packets and dispense the first real ‘Postage Labels’ the UK Post Office has issued since 1984.

I am also including the steps taken to reach this point, including the different types of ‘Horizon’ Labels, the ‘Weigh and Vend’ experiment of 2004 and the close cousins ‘Smartstamps’ .. with which, as  you will discover in the not too distant future, a significant amount of convergence will take place..
