Posta Kenya migrates from analog to digital

Posta Kenya has migrated from its analog platform for sending and receiving mail to a digital platform, allowing its customers to access convenient services.

The postal service company has achieved this through its new ‘Mpost’ platform, a mobile-based technology that enables customers get their box address by using their mobile phone numbers.

Speaking early today in a Nairobi hotel, Cabinet Secretary for ICT Joe Mucheru said that the launch will help boost the country’s revenue as many people will be able to sign up to the platform

“We are very delighted as a country to have this platform that will put the postal Kenya ahead with technology, many years postal Kenya has been dormant with many assuming that they still do not exist, with this platform we believe that the corporation will be able to compete with other sectors,” said Mucheru.

So far, 21,000 people are already using the platform.

“Our customers will be able to get their package delivered to their doorstep at a small cost of Sh300 only,” said Enock Kinara, Postmaster General Postal Corporation of Kenya.

“This platform is time-saving and timely. It is also physically available for customers,” added Kinara.

Kenya has 623 post offices across the country that deliver services to different clients. Through this new platform, customers will be able to save up to Sh2,000 since the previous cost of owning a postal address required a service fee of Sh2,300.

Kinara also added that the corporation has plans to venture into passenger services,

“We are also migrating to transportation known as Posta Liner Services. We want to purchase 30 buses as we currently have two as this will provide employment to our people,” added Kinara.
