postman activex

Now you can build POSTman’s address validation and postal barcoding features into your own Windows application with POSTman ActiveX.

POSTman ActiveX includes all the features of the standard AMAS approved POSTman application, along with COM based programming interface, API documentation, and all barcode font and source code examples needed to add this functionality to your own applications.

Your developers simply insert the POSTman ActiveX Library into their development application to integrate with your own database. They then add instructions to your in-house application to call the Postman ActiveX Library and retrieve the DPID, barcode and barcode sort information from it. Your data is then automatically validated and barcoded without your operators having to do a thing. Some developers have had POSTman integrated with their applications in under an hour.

POSTman ActiveX’s Microsoft Office Integration

The most common business applications in use today are those that make up Microsoft’s Office suite, including Microsoft Word for Windows, Microsoft Access and Microsoft Excel. Because of the popularity of these applications, they have become a focus for DMS’s “Making Barcoding Easy” program.

DMS is now the only company that can provide a barcoding solution for each of these Microsoft products.

Microsoft Word

POSTman’s integration with Microsoft Word allows you to attach barcodes directly to individual letters, envelopes, mailing labels and other correspondence without having to leave Word itself. And, what’s more, POSTman can even correct addresses as you insert them into your document.

POSTman also gives you the option of including the Barcode Sort Prefix (BSP Code) on documents along with your barcodes so that you can take maximum advantage of the postage discounts offered by Australia Post.

Microsoft Access

POSTman’s integration with MS Access – a product many customers use to store their customer and mailing information, allows you to barcode the addresses in your Access databases without even leaving the Access program. This means an easier life with no more program swapping and no more data conversions. Plus, the handy POSTman Wizards make all POSTman/Access processes super easy.

 Microsoft Excel 2000 and XP versions

POSTman makes the process of exporting and barcoding data from MS Excel simple - a process that can otherwise be tricky and problematic.

As with POSTman’s Access integration, POSTman’s Excel Wizard makes light work of the barcoding process, and even helps convert data into a format more suitable for use in other applications such as MS Word or other database applications. 

All of these office integration tools are included in DMS’s POSTman range of products.

No other product makes barcoding your mail this easy.

But don’t just take our word for it! Call us now on 1800 334 060 or email and ask for your FREE 14 day POSTman trial.

DMS has made barcoding easy by developing the POSTman range of products and including support for many business applications such as the Microsoft Office Suite. Other software developers have also grown to appreciate POSTman's ease of use and have chosen to develop specific support for POSTman barcoding and address validation in their own applications.

Here we have listed a number of vendors and software packages that support the POSTman barcoding solution.
