Escher, the company transforming the postal and courier market with their innovative customer engagement platform, today announced that Nick Manolis has been named chief executive officer (CEO) of Escher, and that he has also been appointed to the company’s board of directors. For more than two decades, postal operators and couriers have relied on Escher to improve their customer experience at all points of engagement, accelerate service delivery and help them to transform their business to a more efficient variable cost model in a budget constrained world. Escher has emerged as the worldwide market leader in customer engagement solutions for postal point-of-service (POS), and Manolis will be responsible for leading the company’s continued global expansion.
“Nick is a proven executive in leading high performing, customer-centric technology companies,” said Matthew Peacock founding partner at Hanover and Escher board member. “That talent combined with his success in innovating global retail platform solutions makes him a perfect fit to lead Escher as the company looks to expand its reach globally into new countries, and postal and courier markets”
Outdated IT infrastructure and antiquated operating models no longer work for postal operators and couriers who need to manage the growth of parcels and adapt to today’s digitally savvy customers who want to be engaged on their own terms. Forward-looking postal executives are investing in customer engagement platforms to provide the best customer experience, increase revenues and move to a variable cost model.
With its unique and purpose-built customer engagement platform, Escher enables postal operators to shift to modern and profitable customer engagement strategies that embrace today’s digitally disruptive world. With new and deeper points of engagement - including third-party locations, kiosks, expanded pick-up drop-off (PUDO) locations, and mobile point of sale - Escher makes it easier for postal customers to do business. Escher drives efficiency by automating and streamlining business processes and easily operationalizing new points of engagement. New services can be rolled out in days and third-party services can be implemented overnight.
With 25 unique post-centric technology patents, Escher has been able to deploy more than 350 thousand customer engagement points globally, which has resulted in more than two billion transactions processed annually. Escher has transformed how 35 postal operators around the globe profitably interact with their customers.
“Postal operators and couriers worldwide rely on Escher as they make the shift to a modern and profitable customer engagement strategy and embrace today’s digitally disruptive world. Our platform allows them to rapidly deliver new services and capabilities, while also providing a superior customer experience. With Escher, postal executives can do more with the resources with which they are entrusted,” said Nick Manolis. “I am honored to work with the exceptional team at Escher and the posts we serve globally.”
