Version 2.0 of PreLien2Lien Online released – www.PL2L.com

TRADITION SOFTWARE, INC. released on July 28, 2016 Version 2.0 of PreLien2Lien Online (www.PL2L.com).

Since its Version 1.0 launch in December 2015, we have gathered feedback as to how to make the product more reliable, and easier to use. As a result of that feedback, the data entry screen has been redesigned entirely so that it fits on one screen / browser tab.

More enhancements and features will be added in the months ahead. One significant new feature that will be added is the option to have TRADITION SOFTWARE do mailing of your 1st notice by Certified Mail for a fee of $1.00 + mail costs (6.47 certified mail green card) per notice. Let us go to the Post Office for you.

New USPS certified mail changes

Effective May 31, 2015 the U.S. Postal Service increased the price of Certified Return Receipt (CRR) mail, also known as the green card return receipt, to $6.74 from the previous $6.49. To save $1.40, you can use the Electronic Return Receipt (ERR), which now cost $5.34 total per mail piece.

The format of the Return Green Card (PS Form 3811) and Certified Mail Receipt (PS Form 3800) also changed.

TRADITION SOFTWARE has been in contact with the Postal Service business office in Memphis, TN regarding the continued use of our CRR and ERR pre-printed TRADITION Forms, our self-mailer certified mail forms developed with the U.S. Postal Service in 2010. As of today, the Postal Service is trying to determine what to do with vendors and business partners like ourselves who have stock on hand for certified mail solutions.
