Technical Overview

Bing's products are continually evolving.

If there's a feature you're looking for that isn't listed below, we can probably do it. Just ask!


Bing offers a range of methodologies to capture and process your documents. Our flagship EasyPost Mailroom provides a fully featured virtual mailroom suited to simple single PC installations through to complex enterprise-wide deployments. The Easypost Mailroom includes a Windows Printer Driver that can capture documents from almost any existing Windows application. Multiple Mailroom environments can use a centralised upload spooler. Alternatively, our APIs provide full programmatic interfaces to our processing, production and querying environment for ultimate control.

All of Bing's submission methods support automatic postal routing, fax, email with attached documents, email and sms with linked documents, automatic failover from email or sms to postal delivery where required. Comprehensive and customisable reporting is available across our product range.

Bing accepts print-ready documents with all our submission methods. Documents created using Microsoft Word, mailmerge or existing accounting software can be printed directly to EasyPost Mailroom or EasyPost Lite. Alternatively Bing can construct documents from your data.

Documents can be submitted to Bing via EasyPost Mailroom, EasyPost Lite, Customer Web Portal, or programmatically using the EasyPost API.
