Electronic data exchange with Swiss Post
DataTransfer is the electronic Swiss Post interface for the direct exchange of consignment and billing data as well as status reports between your company and Swiss Post. DataTransfer simplifies posting and creates transparency in the entire shipping process.
With DataTransfer, you use a multifunctional electronic interface with Swiss Post. Data exchange with Swiss Post works for all consignments with a barcode. You can also use the consignment data to update your own database. Secure SFTP connections protect data transfer from unauthorized access. Public administrations have the option of transferring data via sedex (secure data exchange). Another alternative is data exchange via e-mail.
Service and features
DataTransfer for letters
With DataTransfer, you transfer consignment data quickly and effectively when posting letter mail. Once the data has been transferred, Swiss Post provides you with all the relevant dispatch documents via the electronic interface (delivery slip and/or dispatch list). Once these documents have been prepared, you have nothing else to do.
With DataTransfer, you also have the option of comparing your addresses with our database and making any necessary changes before sending bulk mailings. This means you increase successful delivery rates for a mailing.
You can consult the report data generated every day concerning letters with barcode via DataTransfer and incorporate it into your specialist applications.
DataTransfer for parcels
Even when posting parcels, DataTransfer is the quickest and most convenient means of transferring consignment data electronically.
The system completes the address information with the processing and delivery data. For example, you can inform your recipient customer in advance of the processing status of your delivery by SMS or e-mail or order a delivery confirmation for each consignment for yourself.
Various standard reports are available to enable you to carry out your own analysis of the service. You can therefore, for example, ascertain when a consignment was delivered or whether, and in which processing phase, any irregularities occurred.
