The BLINK Software


BLINK is a software package that makes it possible to print Australia Post barcodes quickly and easily so you can significantly reduce your postage expenses.

When using BLINK with Summit Central you can validate addresses and add Australia Post approved barcodes on all your mail merges, labels and envelopes. Upon entering a new address into your Summit Central database, BLINK matches the address with a Postal Address File (PAF) provided by Australia Post and adds the appropriate barcode.

By including barcodes on your mail merges, labels and envelopes you can receive significant discounts from Australia Post. Barcodes allow for a more automated mail processing system which saves Australia Post time and money. In turn, this allows Australia Post to offer lower postage prices for its customers that barcode their mail.

Australia Post barcoding includes a charity mail service.
