AT&T Communications recently encouraged its employees to sign up for Informed Delivery, the popular USPS mail notification service.

The technology and media company featured Informed Delivery in an employee newsletter article that was read by about 20,000 people.

Among those who read the story and signed up: AT&T Communications’ Assistant Vice President for Finance Billing Operations Ann Whalen.

“Informed Delivery has given me personal control over my daily mail delivery,” Whalen said. “It provides advantages I didn’t have before. I now have the confidence whether home or away to know what is waiting for me in my mailbox.”

Other AT&T employees said they were already Informed Delivery users, including several who reported using it to know when important mailpieces are on the way, and another who declared it’s “the best service ever.”

Informed Delivery, which currently has more than 13 million users, allows customers to digitally preview their incoming mail and manage their packages from computers, tablets and mobile devices. The free feature is part of the Postal Service’s strategy to add value to the mail and grow revenue.
