Check out BoxMinder - The Mailbox Notification System.
What is BoxMinder?
BoxMinder is a software product designed specifically for mailbox rental stores. It performs the important task of notifying a store's customers via e-mail or SMS text message whenever they receive mail or packages in their mailbox. This service saves them many unnecessary trips or calls to your store, and will definitely be appreciated by customers waiting on important deliveries. It also tracks when the customer needs to renew their mailbox so you don't have to. It sends the customer a notification when a box is coming due. It will also send the store a notification of due mailboxes if you choose.
BoxMinder is a standalone package meant to be installed on a local workstation with an Internet connection. It is both easy to use and easy to customize to fit your store's own specific needs.
How does BoxMinder work?
Boxminder can easily be incorporated into your location's routine. Incoming mail or packages received by the store are sorted and processed as usual. The attendant then runs the software and uses a wireless scanner to scan the barcodes affixed to those mailboxes which contain new materials. Stores without access to wireless scanners can also hand-key barcode/mailbox numbers instead.
Alerts are only sent to customers who have signed up for the BoxMinder service; any customer who have opted out simply have their barcodes ignored by the program.
BoxMinder comes with all the tools required to print mailbox barcodes and customer enrollment forms from your own computers. It also includes a separate e-mail address hosted on our own server at BoxMinder.net for the sole purpose of sending out new notifications to customers.
Each customer can register up to three different e-mail addresses for instant notification in addition to specifying an SMS/PCS phone text number for text messages, and can request any or all of their contacts to be notified at once. Customers who will be gone for extended periods can even have their notifications put on hold for that period.
An option to include single-line advertisements with new mail or package notifications is also included with BoxMinder. This is perfect for informing your customers of new or upcoming specials, as well as promoting other community events or business partners. You can organize which advertisements, if any, are sent out through the storage database built into BoxMinder. Send every customer the same default adv, or select a customized message at the time of processing.
BoxMinder comes complete with a mailbox file creation wizard, which automatically sets up new box file records based on input data. It also keeps a transaction history of all sent notifications. Combined with easy installation and robust backup and restore feature, BoxMinder is made to be reliable and user-friendly.
How much does it cost?
BoxMinder SaaS version charges a fee of $90.00 per year, per store. This price includes the software itself and the automatic communication service, as well as full product support and software updates. Any location that has more traffic than 250 email/text messages per day is subject to additional charges based on the volume of messages sent. We have plans that can handle up to 10,000 emails/text messages per day.
We also have a PRO version for a one time fee of $199.00, which is essentially the same as the SaaS version, but in this version you supply the email address to be used to send out the notifications via the software. This is a one time charge for the software itself, and it includes a full year of Support/Upgrades/Updates. After the year is up, there is a yearly fee for Support/Upgrades/Updates if you choose to purchase.
You can decide for yourself whether your store will require an extra cost for customers to use the BoxMinder program or if you wish to provide its benefits for free. No extra licensing agreements or fees are required if you wish to charge for this service. It's simple to setup the software to allow for either option, so the choice is yours.
Imagine if you have 100 mailboxes rented, and charge just an extra $10 for the service per year, that is an extra $900.00+ in your pocket. And your customers will love you for it.
