Post Home!

Post Home!

Swiss Post is testing a new system which will allow customers to order parcel collections and other products and services by using a “Post Home Button” device.

In a statement issued today (1 June), Swiss Post said that the test phase will involve around 1,000 households in the regions of Olten, Liestal and Sissach and run through to the end of August.

“A simple click of the button is all it takes for them to be able to hand over parcels or letters on their doorstep to delivery staff the following day,” said Swiss Post.

The company explained how it works: “The Post Home Button is a small device that sends Swiss Post a signal via a wireless network at the push of a button. It is easy to use: one click is all it takes to request a Swiss Post service or place an order. It is possible to request predefined products and services, such as mail collection or A and B Mail stamps, using the Post Home Button and the relevant order cards.

As part of this trial, Migros Aare, Qualipet and Domino’s Pizza are also using the Post Home Button to test whether this technology can simplify the process for ordering their own products. Besides the button, Swiss Post is also assessing the acceptance of mobile-app-based ordering.
