Student Mail/Package Room Services

    Hello Everyone,


    We are looking to identify providers that offer solutions for student mail and/or package room services for our campus residents---we are entertaining a variety of options, so pretty much any type of service/technology/consulting might be relevant to the overall strategy we pursue. The RFP we have created allows respondents to give an overview of whatever capabilities and innovations that they have to increase the efficiency of our operation and/or convenience for students.


    I'd welcome recommendations for names of companies that would be good candidates to receive our RFP.


    Thank you!

    ​Good afternoon Dr. Bradie.

    I have had he good fortune to have worked with many outstanding business partners to serve our student sand university community through my twenty plus years in higher education, and one that has stood out and continued to meet our ever changing needs is our mail service provider The Millennium Group. I have left you a voice message if you would like more detailed information.
    Hope to see you all in Orlando!

    I'd like to take a moment to give a public THANK YOU to everyone that replied. I got lots of information, spoke with new colleagues via phone, and even established new relationships.  This forum really works!

    ​We will be installing parcel lockers, owned and operations by the College, and switching to a high density mail system next week.  We looked at many vendors to assist with these options and our vision for how we would want to continue to provide outstanding services to our student, while reducing the overall footprint of our operation.  About a year ago, we partnered with Amazon to obtain an Amazon Locker as well, which has taken some workload off of the staff and placed it on the carriers. Our Post Office operation is self operating, and while there are a handful of vendors that can come in and take control of the operation, this was not something we wanted to entertain, as we felt the personal touch and customer service with our students would be impacted.

    We elected to partner with NeoPost, as they have the technology we were looking for to handle our package accountability protocol, and were also able to provide the parcel lockers, the technology and the high density mail piece we were looking for.  The implementation process has been smooth, so far, and they have been all hands on deck throughout the process.

    If you would like contact information or more detailed information in general, please do not hesitate to contact me.  This will be an exciting endeavor for our operation to partake in and we are excited about the students reactions when they return and see how our mail and package operation has evolved to cater to them.

    We have a partnership with Canon and they are another provider for locker solutions.

    Good luck!
