DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION OF THE POSTAL INDUSTRIES
12 October 2021
Digital transformation :
postal industries are modernizing
Live from Vienna, where Iagona is participating in the Parcel and Post Expo, dedicated to future technologies, solutions and services for parcel delivery, e-commerce logistics and postal industries.
With the MK Post self-service kiosk, our new generation digital equipment, Iagona’s teams are aiming at the international market.
WHY ARE THE POSTAL INDUSTRIES GOING DIGITAL?
In recent years, the global e-commerce boom and successive confinements have significantly and permanently changed consumer habits.
While mail delivery is declining, the explosion of online shopping is generating a colossal volume of parcels to be transported and delivered – in ever shorter timeframes to satisfy demanding customers – and to stand up to the giants of online commerce. Faced with these upheavals, the postal industries are accelerating their digitalization to meet their customers’ needs.
More modern post offices, self-service terminals to carry out procedures autonomously and a better handling of requests at counters. And innovative applications linking our cell phones to self-service kiosks. Innovation, easy-to-use tools, with complete peace of mind.

Interior screens placed above the counters (or in the window)
With text, video, pictograms, they allow to relay continuous information. A usefull way to keep informed while waiting.
