New Customer Services Centre to open in time for Christmas

Nov 28, 2012 (M2 PRESSWIRE via COMTEX) -- A new Customer Services Centre offering customers all postal services will open on December 3, in time for Christmas, the business's busiest time of year.

Construction of the suite started in July and the new addition will provide Island residents with a significantly improved customer service experience.

For the first time, this facility will offer the full range of postal and retail services including foreign currency, vehicle and driving licenses, banking facilities and Moneygram in addition to the collection of parcels.

From December 3, all services will be available six days a week from 7am to 7pm Monday to Friday and 7am to 12.30pm on Saturday throughout the year. However, during December there will be extended opening till 8.30pm to assist customers at this busy time of year.

The new Centre also provides significantly more space with a single queuing system and three counter positions.The new Centre will also house two unique self-service features. A Pay & Post kiosk will allow customers to beat the queues for carrying out general postal transactions. The machines enable customers to weigh, stamp and pay for packages to be posted quickly and efficiently, using a simple touch screen device. As well as the usual postal capabilities, customers can also pay their electricity, gas, phone bills and government rates through the kiosks. There will also be self service PO Boxes for customers who currently subscribe to this service. They will no longer have to queue to collect their mail and this will be of particular benefit to those who choose to do this first thing in the morning.

Lisa Duckworth, Commercial Director, of Isle of Man Post Office said: "The new Customer Services Centre will greatly enhance our customer's experience at Postal Headquarters. This is an investment into the local community and we are delighted with the finished results. All postal and retail services will be available throughout the day. With early morning opening and late night closing times, I believe this new Centre will be very popular with our customers. We have simplified our queuing system and added one of our self-service postal kiosks which have proved very popular elsewhere on the Island." She continued: "In addition, we have provided the added convenience of self-service private boxes avoiding the need for our customers to queue to collect their mail; this is particularly useful to them at busy times of the day when they previously had to queue. The suite has also been constructed in consideration of the needs of disabled customers, working in conjunction with the Disability Access Office run by Crossroads Care. We were delighted to work with them to ensure our new Centre provided as many aids and features for our disabled customers as possible. We have introduced a hearing loop, a disabled level counter and tactile signage." The Customer Services Centre will be open from Monday (3rd December).

Delivering First Class Communications With WebRTC

This webcast captures a recent discussion about WebRTC between Jim Donovan, Director of Product Management at Oracle and Larry Hettick, Editorial Director and Senior Research Fellow at Webtorials. The topics cover WebRTC reliability, interoperability, and security--looking at how Oracle addresses these issues.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

ConnectCare & Unified Contact Manager

SPAN's ConnectCare is a WebRTC-based telemedicine app, which allows consumers to easily and instantly avail clinical healthcare from the providers, regardless of their location. This app is extremely useful to healthcare providers, patients and their caregivers alike.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
