Louisiana State University
The UPS Store® Center Brings Valuable Services to LSU
With such a large and diverse community, Louisiana State University (LSU) needed a trusted partner and a team of experts to help serve their needs--from package and mail receiving to shipping and printing. A The UPS Store® center was a natural fit.
Located on the first floor of LSU's Student Union, The UPS Store® location sits at the heart of the university, providing easy access to serve the student body, staff and faculty. Having taken over the previous mailroom, the center manages all mail operations on behalf of the school, including 5,500 student mailboxes and hundreds of packages on any given day.
Quality, Convenient Printing and More
In addition to packing and shipping, printing is the biggest service utilized at The UPS Store® location on LSU's campus. Undergraduate students take advantage of printing services for resumes, while graduate and doctoral students appreciate the ease of printing large research posters.
The center offers administrative departments and student organizations access to high-quality print machines with the convenience of an on-campus print production facility.
Arizona State University
Parcel & Mail Management for ASU's Massive Campus
With a massive student body, handling mail and packages at ASU was similar to managing postal, parcel and shipping services for a small city. When the university handled mail for its 13,000+ residents, they had a manual system which delivered mail to each residence hall. Students were hired to sort and deliver mail throughout campus without a database or tracking system, which led to lost packages and misplaced mail. The university experienced unpredictable replacement expenses.
ASU administrators partnered with the experts at The UPS Store® center to streamline their student parcel and mail management services. 14 delivery locations were condensed into two center locations and a state-of-the-art Parcel Management System was implemented to monitor packages after delivery and improve delivery accuracy.
The two The UPS Store® locations on campus provide parcel and mail management services to approximately 9,000 student mailboxes. In addition to eliminating lost packages and mail, The UPS Store® network created custom solutions, such as "Home-to-Home" delivery services which help students move in and out of campus residences more efficiently.
World-Class Expert Service
The UPS Store® network offers an exceptional customer experience through convenience, quality and value.
State-of-the-art systems reduce congestion, save time and can reduce cost through outsourcing.
Students benefit from postal, parcel, mail, printing, notary, computer and Home-to-Home services.
In partnership with ASU, The UPS Store® locations employ around 30 students. Center management takes into account the students' individual class schedules to ensure they can balance work and academic success.
Florida State University
Postal and Upgraded Printing Services at FSU
The UPS Store® franchise was originally contracted to provide on-site postal services for FSU, but soon after, the university took advantage of the greater capabilities of a The UPS Store® center to address its campus-wide printing needs.
Campus Print Services
With over 40,000 students enrolled, FSU has a never-ending list of major print requests, including stationery, newsletters, invitations, manuals and student handbooks, coming from the various divisions and sectors of the university.
By partnering with The UPS Store® franchise, FSU has an enterprise-wide resource for not just students and faculty, but the entire academic departments, the individual colleges comprising the university and the institution as a whole.
The UPS Store® Solution
The UPS Store® franchisee upgraded FSU's existing "Print Shop" infrastructure and services by installing new enterprise-level copiers and equipment, and staffed the FSU Print Shop with adequate full and part-time employees. In doing so, The UPS Store® campus location has become Florida State University's operational partner, successfully offloading campus print services and freeing up time for school administration.
The UPS Store® location on FSU's campus manages and is the sole provider of all enterprise-level on-campus print services while still serving its more traditional role as a retailer of print, packaging, shipping and other services for students, faculty and staff.
The UPS Store at FSU provides additional print services:
- Wide-format (signs, banners, posters, etc.)
- Business cards
- Event tickets
- Game day programs for sporting events
- Course books
- Promotional materials
