 POSTAL SERVICE ANNUAL REPORT NOTES XPLOR INTERNATIONAL AWARD FOR
 AUTOMATION; PREDICTS $4.5 BILLION ANNUAL SAVING BY 1995
 PALOS VERDES ESTATES, Calif., April 1 /PRNewswire/ -- In its new fiscal 1991 annual report, the U.S. Postal Service, winner of XPLOR International's 1991 Innovator of the Year award, said its ongoing automation program saved $1.1 billion for the year in wages and benefits alone and predicted that annual savings from automation will reach $4.5 billion annually by 1995.
 XPLOR International provides forums, programs and services to the electronic document systems industry to enhance use of technology for achievement of organizational goals. The organization's Innovator of the Year award is given for achievement of significant technological advances in electronic document printing.
 Keith Davidson, Ph.D., XPLOR executive director, said the 1991 award was given to the Postal Service for its aggressive automation programs that are playing an increasingly significant part in helping XPLOR members both reduce postage costs and increase the speed of moving documents throughout the country.
 "By 1995, according to Postmaster General Anthony M. Frank, the Postal Service expects that more than 95 percent of all letter mail will be processed by automated equipment," he said.
 "XPLOR members, managers of computer-based document production and distribution in companies and government organizations, send more than 16 billion pieces of mail through the Postal Service every year. We estimate that ZIP+4 and barcoding incentives alone will cut postage costs by 21 percent and save our member organizations more than $1 billion annually," Davidson added.
 In the Postal Service annual report, Postmaster General Frank pointed out that Texaco has realized annual savings of more than $2.4 million by using ZIP+4 and barcoding and that the American Automobile Association saved nearly $50,000 per division in 1991.
 XPLOR serves more than 1,300 corporate members worldwide, including most of the high volume users and vendors of electronic printing and publishing equipment. The organization estimates that its members are responsible for printing half of all the pages printed electronically in The United States each day.
