Digital Innovation of the Year:
SNAILE’S MAIL NOTIFICATION TECHNOLOGY

The problem: From 2014, Canada Post decided to stop door-to-door delivery in some areas to save costs, instead placing everything in a single community mailbox (CMB).

The solution: mail notification technology from Snaile, installed at the CMB and sending an alert when post arrives.
