Atlanta (PRESS RELEASE – October 7, 2010) – DYMO Labeling, part of Newell Rubbermaid’s Technology Global Business Unit (NYSE:NWL), now offers customers a broader range of shipping options, including UPS, through its new relationship with ABOL Software, a global software provider.
ABOL’s Home & Office multi-carrier Internet shipping software – offered at no charge – enables small businesses to easily print free UPS shipping labels using the DYMO LabelWriter 4XL printer. Customers of DYMO Endicia, a Newell Rubbermaid company that provides Internet postage services, may also print U.S. Postal Service shipping labels through the ABOL software.
The ABOL/DYMO relationship provides significant advantages for small businesses with a variety of shipping needs, especially those that ship with multiple carriers. Label printing cost varies by carrier – UPS labels may be printed for free, while FedEx, DHL and U.S. Postal Service labels require a small fee.
“By partnering with ABOL, we are offering DYMO customers additional functionality and flexibility so that they can more efficiently handle their shipping needs,” said Robert Rosenquist, VP of Sales and Channel marketing, DYMO. “We constantly strive to enhance our services, and the availability of ABOL’s free software provides customers with a professional, easy to use shipping tool that supplements the work they do on a daily basis.”
“DYMO shares ABOL’s vision that shipping shouldn’t be complicated,” said Mark Goettal, President and CEO, ABOL Software. “We are pleased that our shipping software will work with the DYMO LabelWriter 4XL to help simplify important office tasks.”
The DYMO LabelWriter 4XL label printer provides an easy and cost effective way to print a wide range of professional-quality labels. Offering 300 dpi, fast print speeds, 4-inch wide labels and a sleek compact design, its direct thermal technology eliminates the need for ink and toner. The DYMO LabelWriter 4XL prints on a wide variety of labels for many applications, including shipping and receiving, inventory control, retail, healthcare, transportation and logistics.
ABOL also has a partnership with DYMO Endicia, which enables customers to generate automated U.S. Postal Service shipping labels with free delivery confirmation and “stealth” postage from a computer with a web browser and a printer. No complicated software download or installation is required.
