FROM THE PHYSICAL TO THE DIGITAL POST SERVICE
Τετάρτη, 4 Δεκεμβρίου 2013
Α brand new innovation coming from Hellenic Post!

For the first time in Greek stamp history, the two dimensional barcode technology (QRC) is depicted in a stamp of a Commemorative Series of Stamps  that is being launched on December 2nd, under the title “From the Physical to the Digital Post Service”.

 

Scanning the 0,72€ stamp, you are immediately linked to the corporate Hellenic Post website and you have on your mobile phone all the information that you need about post services: post offices addresses, timetables and e-shop services.
Leading its business within a competitive environment and in a substantially deregulated market, influenced by the acute financial crises of our times, the Hellenic Post chooses to invest in the future, in technological infrastructures and services and in new generation equipment, aiming at becoming the Modern Postal Services Provider of tomorrow. The Digital Post is an imminent need today; and the Greek postal business shall certainly incorporate the contemporary technological imperatives, targeting high competitiveness and the maximum service performance.

This is the spirit governing the Commemorative Series of Stamps launched by the Hellenic Post on December 2nd 2013 under the title “From the Physical to the Digital Post Service”.
