Postal Service CMO Jim Cochrane is itching to deliver paper mail to email inboxes. "It's a game-changing moment," he says. Though the linchpin of USPS's digital strategy—Informed Delivery—is now but a 67,000-person beta test in New York and Virginia, Chief Marketing and Sales Officer Jim Cochrane is confident he'll be able to meet his boss's 2017 deadline for a national roll-out of the service. In her keynote address at last week's National Postal Forum, Postmaster General Megan Brennan committed to the aggressive time table for Informed Delivery (ID), a free app that sends people visual notifications of what awaits them in their mailboxes each day. Letter mail sorters take pictures of each envelope running through them and Informed Delivery takes those, corrals them by address, and emails them to subscribers.

After 21 years, Alabama-based Grand View Media appears to be exiting the publishing business.
Group C Media—the New Jersey-based publisher of Business Facilities and Facility Executive magazines—announced last week its acquisition of Turf, Turf Design Build, and Tree Services magazines from Grand View Media, reuniting the brands with the online forums LawnSite and PlowSite, which Group C purchased from Grand View earlier this year.
“We’re thrilled that Turf, Turf Design Build and Tree Services are back where they belong with the LawnSite Network,” said Group C co-president Ted Coene in a statement. “The acquisition of these industry-leading brands will give us the opportunity to create new offerings in print, online and face-to-face events.”
The titles were among Group C’s targets in the earlier deal for LawnSite and PlowSite, Coene told Folio: in a follow-up conversation, adding that he was pleased to have had a second opportunity to acquire them. He said the purchase is part of the company’s broader strategy to continue to grow by diversifying its served markets and revenue mix. Group C declined to share the terms of the acquisition.
