Will adding the EP ROL parameter to a job result in a longer run time using MailStream Plus

Product Affected:  MailStream Plus™
Using these MailStream Plus™ parameters in a USPS Markting Mail presort palletized mailing:
  • NDC PT
  • SCF PT
  • EP ROL to move nonpalletized pieces to the default entry point.
 
When you add these parameters, does it slow down processing of a job?
 
Yes, adding the EP ROL parameter will make the job running slower than if the job did not use the EP ROL parameter.  EP ROL requires the presort step to re-process entry points that have mail moved out of or into them.  How much additional time depends on the mailing- number of mail pieces, number of entry points, how much mail gets moved to/from other entry points, etc.

** Note adding the EP MIN parameter will also make a job take longer to process
