<p>Postbak, Australia’s new innovative lost and found service, has successfully recovered 75% of its clients’ lost mobile phones at Australia’s largest ICT event</p>
<p>(Sydney, Australia – May 11, 2004) – Postbak, Australia’s innovative national lost and found service announced today that it has successfully recovered 75% of its clients’ lost mobile phones at CeBIT, Australia’s largest Information &amp; Communications Technology (ICT) event for the business marketplace.</p>
<p>Over the three-day event, a number of Postbak clients attending and involved in the CeBIT Australia event had reported losing their mobile phones within and around the Sydney Exhibition Centre.</p>
<p>“Within hours after losing his mobile, a client of ours contacted us to report it. Later that same day we received a call from an exhibitor at CeBIT to advise us that they had found the phone, and within just a few short hours, we had the lost mobile back in our client’s hands,” said Russ Supplee, Postbak director. “Our client didn't have to cancel his mobile service, which saved them a considerable amount of time, effort and money,” added Supplee.</p>
<p>The finders of lost items are motivated to return the lost mobiles because Postbak's system is simple, convenient, confidential, cost-free and offers them a reward. All they have to do is provide Postbak the label ID number and Postbak arranges for a Messenger Post courier pickup. Finders don't have to try and find the owner, pack a box, or pay for shipping. Once the lost item is returned to the owner, they receive Postbak's standard reward, $39 worth of Postbak labels, plus any cash reward that the owner of the possession has offered.</p>
<p>“The process was smooth and quick,” said Jim Linn, one of the finders.
Each Postbak security label has a unique ID number linking the portable item to the owner. Owners register with Postbak online or via a toll-free number. Registration is free; there are no additional fees unless a registered item is lost. If Postbak recovers an item, the owner is responsible only for shipping and handling.</p>
<p>Russell Supplee, Postbak director, is available for media interviews.</p>

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
